A New SCS Challenge

They have a new challenge over at SCS - Mix-Ability!  I.AM.SO.THERE!  I love playing with mixed media.  This challenge will be a learning challenge also - teach us steps and ways to create mixed media.  This week's challenge is to use 2 different mediums - one matte and one shiny.  SO FUN!

I started with a page from a quote book I got at a garage sale for like 10¢.  I gesso'd it, let it dry, stamped the chevron bg, stamped the letters with SU Headline Alphabet [can I just say I have had this set of letters for 8 years, and I have used them once -- how crazy is that!  I will be using these much more - I love these letters!]  With red pigment ink I stamped the dots and cleared embossed them.  

I tried to pick up the "shine" but that didn't work.  You'll just have to trust me...  I am going to go ahead and enter this into the Moxie Fab Make Your Own Background Paper challenge.  I do believe this qualifies for that challenge too.

Thanks for stopping by.  I look forward to next Friday's challenge with mixed media.
