For Jeanne's Mister Mister MIX challenge.
For mixed media I used alcohol inks and both polychromos and Inktense pencils.
Applied green alcohol inks and a little brown to a quarter sheet of Yupo. Laid the stencil on top and misted it with rubbing alcohol. Left it to dry before removing the stencil. Trimmed it and matted it on black, then a white base. Stamped the SU sentiment.
From my desk I pulled a couple of leftover bits from my Autumn sampler - Cinnamon was already coloured and just hadn't been used. I used Inktense pencils to colour the scrap of JoyCraft die-cut border, and added gel pen dots to the red toadstools.

Sabrina, your alcohol ink colored bg looks so natural and look be the leaf pattern. I have some AI pending use; I’ve been watching several online videos on techniques. Your stencil technique is very appealing and gives me much needed confidence to give it a go!
Cinnamon is adorable! :)

Wow, wow, wow!!! You must be thrilled to bits with this, what a great sense of texture and a blend of vibrant Autumn colours. I could look at this for the longest time Sabrina. I'm very glad little Cinnamon got a gig!
