Mixing

There is a book on color mixing called ' Blue and Yellow  don't make green.'
Well, they do and they don't. At a certain point anything you mix turns to mud. In more things than paint!
Once again I,m keeping it simple here inspite of a learning curve.
I used acrylic inks for the first time, and learned that they act as a resist once they are dry. More play time is needed to learn how to use their properties to my advantage. I'm more of a water color girl, still I'm teachable!
This weeks theme at Created Byhand Challenge is Red +Blue= Purple. Red brought me to the flourished hearts , stamped in red and thermal embossed clear.
The quote was stamped in versafine deep lagoon- a new color to me-I love it!-a good mixing color, thermal embossed clear.
the background is a wash of acrylic inks-that dry really fast so no thinking!
The little hearts are a small punch with a dot each of stickles and liquid pearls.
This would make a good thank you card with a gift, and possibly a sympathy card if you're not sure what to say.
Mix it up.  if you can't make a mess you can't make anything!
Thanks for reading, your comments and your color!
