CCEE 1626 - Mixed Media

Vicky is hosting this one last CCEE challenge for June! She has asked that we make a mixed  media card.

Quoting Splitcoaststamers: A "medium" can be any of the following:

Pencils - wax, oil, watercolour, graphite/charcoal. chalk/pastel
Pastels - Chalk, oil
Markers - watercolor, pigment, water-based acrylic
Pens - ink, glitter
Pigments - Gelatos, watercolor crayons, metallic rubons
Paints - watercolor, acrylic, oil, poster, tempera
Inks - dye, chalk, distress, reinkers, pigment, hybrid
Powders - mica, pigment, chalk
Sprays & airbrushing
Dimensionals - embossing paste, gesso, fabric, found items, papers (collage, piecing) & ephemera, foils
Heated elements - encaustic wax, embossing

For my Christmas design I have used dye inks, distress inks, and acrylic paints.
