Yin Yang challenge

Hello all! I got a chance to play around with the new Mix-Ability challenge over on SCS.  It's all about mixing media's. Here's the card I made my mixing some Gesso (matt) with some gloss (shiny heat embossing).

I used a piece of SU dictionary designer paper and brushed Gesso over it to create the soft diluted appearance. I stamped the lilac onto it once it was dry and then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. 

Wild Wasabi and Lovely Lilac inks were used to watercolor the image. The satin ribbon was colored with a Copic marker and tied using the Bow Easy. Spellbinder label die used to cut out the layers. The lilac stamp is from Great Impressions and the sentiment is from PTI.

I really like how the Gesso made the dp softer. Definitely going to be using this medium again! What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!
