Challenges for this week

I am combining two challenges with week into one card. The first one is JUGS #197 with mixed media. Hmm... what is that? Well after watching the video, it looked like something I should try. I had all of the ingredient's, so I gave it a go.
Dymanic Duos #61 soft and subtle color challenge this week is Pink and Sand, hence, the colors that I chose for this card.

For this card I used a base colored with distressed ink Barn Door and Vintage Photo. Then, when the acrylic white paint mixed with water is applied, it comes out much lighter. I used two coats of white paint to get this effect. Then I used an embossing folder to apply versamark and white embossing power. It just shouted that it needed a rose, so I used this one from Gina K designs, Stately Flowers 6. I stamped on pink and colored with copics and then fussy cut. The sentiment is from the same set, and it is cut and embossed with a spellbinder die.

Thanks for looking!
