Hello and welcome

I was so undecided whether to show this particular post today, so, 'loins girded and several deep breaths' I went for it

My first attempt at mix media, hubby said "you can tell", I had to agree with him, but, hopefully I can only improve.... I don't think I should have stamped the postage stamp lol, not that it would make much difference.  I really want to improve on this so I need a big supply of rubber gloves as I'll never be able to craft 'naked' (messy hands ladies)

I used black Gesso on the page then on YUPO paperI dropped blending solution followed by 3 alcohol inks, had fun blowing the colours with a straw, then left it to dry 

I hope you can distinguish streaks of gold?  I used matt gold foil for that

Next step was to do some stamping, I did get carried away with it, then added the two sentiments

Now onto the winner of Wednesday's card....
