Does modal mixture change the key?

    I was watching a video how a guy uses chords from different modes. Let's say I'm in C major, my understanding is that I can borrow any chord from any of the 7 parallel modes to make my chord progression and/or melody more interesting: Ionian, Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian and Locrian.

    But I'm wondering if that ever changes my key? Or as long as I never mess with the I chord then the key is safe? Or do I ever want to change the key?
