Hey...I made it to the first mixed media challenge! Woot! Woot! I'm so excited that SCS has decided to venture into this wonderful new art...once you get started, you won't be able to stop!
I stayed true to my love of all things CAS with my card, which can be a challenge with mixed media projects, but I'm learning. The background of my card base is embossed and the main image was colored with Adirondack acrylic paints. The hollyhocks image is a design by Donna Downey (the stamps are produced by Unity) and was embossed with black embossing powder. Not super shiney on canvas but the shine is there...in the right light! Sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy.
Supplies (all from eclectic Paperie with the exception of the sentiment stamp):
Stamps: Unity, Hollyhocks design by Donna Downey
Paints: Adirondack paint dabbers
Sentiment: Sweet 'n Sassy

Funny thing.... I love Donna Downeys silhouette flower stamps and use them often, but I've never gotten around to getting this one. I must amend that, especially after seeing how you used it on the canvas. Beautiful.
