This is the third bg I made for the MIX challenge. I wasn't happy with how they were turning out when I used a napkin and then painting with acrylics. So this time since I was going for an Asian theme, I used Joss paper..it's a thin, tissue like paper that I got in SF Chinatown. That worked well and as I was applying the Mod Podge some of the ink started to run which I really liked. Next I added some little metallic shreds to make it sparkle. I rubbed some Inka Gold metallic rub in silver around the edges. The symbol is also stamped on Joss paper. For the WT435 challenge I used a gold Asian coin as my "hardware"

Ohhh, your little metal coin is so cool! The way you have it hanging reminds me of a chinese lantern a little bit. Your background is fabulous!!! The rich red is wonderful!!! Love "tranquility" for your sentiment too! Fantastic card!!!
