Eclectic Ellapu Pink Team Challenge - Outside of Your Comfort Zone

DT member Becca chose the April challenge to create something outside of your comfort zone!

Mixed Media using masks and stencils is very much outside of my comfort zone!

For my project, I started with a 5x7 canvas and used distress inks and water to paint the base.  The birds on a branch mask was used at the top and bottom of the canvas and sponged using walnut stain distress ink.  The fern is a stencil and I used distress ink to color.  I used a wheat stamp over the ferns.  Sprayed some green Dylusions to give some splotches and stamped a sentiment from a MFP stamp set.

We hope you'll try something out of your comfort zone and share it with us at Eclectic Ellapu Challenge.  You can find the challenge HERE.
