Mixed Media Re-Do

I was so unhappy with my other pages for the Mixed Media Challenge 5, I have been trying to find time to re-do another page. Today was the day!  I watched a few more videos -- and tried again.

I do like this one better.  I used watercolor and what this started as sure didn't end up the same!  The more I layered, the more I liked it.  Good grief, my hands are sure messy though.  :)

I couldn't show you both hands [ I had to take the photo], but my other hand is just as bad.   Does anyone know how to remove this stuff?  I have to work tomorrow....  I'll try whatever is in my cupboard and hope something works!  This could be not good!  Sure was fun doing this though I have to say!
 


Thanks for stopping by~

Love it! Okay now might be in time for work but...go out and get yourself a Tim holtz scrubbie!! OMG it works so good. I use warm water and dawn dish soap, get a good lather then scrub away all the ink, paint and even alcohol ink! Does tear up your hands either and I scrub three four times day! :)

Jeez can't type to night....not in time for work and it does NOT tear up your hands!

This is a beautiful mixed media card! So sorry about your hands this time, but for next time head to the drugstore for latex surgical gloves. I use them for stamping, cleaning, and even mixing meatloaf- so my hands stay clean. They are inexpensive, so I can use a new pair for each need. These are just like the surgical gloves we wore when I dental assisted, back in the day! For now, try rubbing alcohol!

Fabulous Vicki! You Aced it girl! Worth the dirty hands, eh? I think GoJo makes a painters hand cleaner although not sure where to get it.

Wonderful colors on this Vicki! When you really get into it - the result is always very dirty/colorful hands!

You asked how I did my easel for my doll stamp - It's a Tim Holtz Alterations die and I linked to it on my post.
