Mix-Ability - 3 different surfaces

Lydia has an interesting challenge for the Mix-Ability crew this week - we could use cardstock for our card base, but all other layers had to be something other than cardstock!

I had a leftover background from my last spray painting session with my daughter, so I used that for my background - that is done on a cereal box, with several layers of spray paint. The pattern is made by laying a stencil into the wet paint, and removing it - this pulls away one layer and reveals whatever colors are beneath.

 The image is from Impression Obsession (Church), and it's colored with Polychromos Pencils/OMS and Liquitex Paint Markers on a sheet of canvas.

 The sentiment is from an I.O. clear set (Mini Messages) and is stamped on a 1-inch Art Square from Inchie Arts.

This challenge was a thinker, but a fun one. Hope you'll join us!

Thanks for stopping by!
