Joy in the ordinary

Ok so  Shery Russ has really inspired me (with her recent creations) to use my mixed media stamps more bravely instead of being so calculated and careful with them! (smile) She creates some awesome one-layer mixed media cards with the coolest backgrounds, so I thought I'd have a go at it. Mine isn't one layer, but it is stamped and stenciled all over! 

To create my background: I scrunched up a cool piece of tissue paper I found in my stash, unfolded it, and glued it to a piece of white card stock.  It adds a nice texture to my tag shaped card.

Supplies and tools:

You did a great job, I am very intimidated by mixed media, I think you have it done just right!
