Mixed Media Saturday

I was lacking interest in working on any crafty project this morning but had time to play so I decided to use the Mixed Media Challenge #8 colors to try to get my inspiration going.   I am pleased with the end result:

There is many layers of paint, glimmer mist, tape, and stenciled images on here.  I added a few images with stamped tissue paper followed up with cardstock stamped images. Colored with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell watercolor pencils.

The sentiment is from Verses Rubber stamps - Rainbow Colors of Laughter I actually modified it a little as this is a birthday sentiment and I cut the birthday in half to say day.

The stamps are Stampers Anonymous - Classic Stamps #1,  and Stampendous Nasturtium. 

The inspiration photo:


Have a wonderful Saturday!
