Hello, everyone! Here's one last reminder to let you all know that there's just a little over 3 days left to enter the October challenge. Have you checked out the gallery? Thirty-six artful entries and's got to be our most eclectic collection of mixed media cards to date!

Here is one last dose of inspiration from the mixed media card girls. Check them out and then link up your mixed media cards here!

Distress Stain "faux watercolour" background, layered stamping, doodling around the edges, embossing enamel details in gold and white, blue and white ink splatters and layered old/vintage embellishments

Stamped and sponged background in Distress inks, stenciled harlequin design with glass bead gel, candles stamped, colored with Copics and fussy-cut

Tim Holtz paper as background. Used punchenella to create dots with distress inks. Distressed and inked the sides. Added metal brad from Stampin' Up! and some twine.

Chalkboard technique combined with distress inks and some texturing can create a fun vintage look
