Fly..... Mixed Media

I created this with 2 challenges in mind - Created by Hand - Insects and Wednesday Stamper - Purple & Green. It was going to be an ATC, but it ended up being about 3"x4" and I didn't want to trim it. This is my first project with alcohol inks, my first use of a "resist" stamp pad, as well as my first attempt at embossing. I had a lot of fun!

This also works great for the Melange Challenge. Since the challenge is called Fly, I just could not pass up the chance to use my piece called Fly... if you have already seen this, thanks for visiting again..



As always, thanks for visiting!

Peace & Love,

Risa

  6. No wonder you had fun with all these new techniques, I would too and it looks just beautiful. I would love to try the stamp resist pads, but I can't find them, I have never embossed either, so we are in the same boat, at least you tried it now and we will probably see a lot more beauty like this :)
