Mixing It Up II

Continuing to play with the Mix-Ability challenge on Splitcoaststampers, in an effort to leave my stamp funk behind. 

MIX56 - Through the Mist

While Miss Lydia was busy enjoying Convention, I got to be inspired by her challenge. Here we use a scrap piece of cardstock to clean a brayer of acrylic paint. Very cool backgrounds can result.

I made quite a few of the backgrounds and picked a couple to finish into notecards.  For this card, I used the reflection technique.
