My first ever mixed media card!

 
 Hey everybody, 

After seeing the PC call for mixed media card, I wondered if I will be able to do it!!! It is a totally new thing to me. I have some gelatoes, watercolour paper, paints and some distress ink daubers. And after some encouragement from friends at facebook, I took the plunge this morning :)
I also realised this morning that trying something new is the homework at Summer Card Camp 2.

Here is my first ever mixed media card.


I seriously didn't know what I was doing. lol!  I just layered and layered paint, stamped, watercoloured with gelatoes, stamped with gelatoes and inks, layered again and finally stamped. The best part was to go through some of my extra diecuts and use them on the card :) I was scared what the end result was going to be. And out of my comfort zone since my style is CAS. And is there a way to do CAS mixed media card? 
Here is a closeup of my card.


What do you think? Please let me know! Should I continue to make mixed media card or not?

Hugs!

This has a fun, artsy feel to it. It's just the kind of card I picture when I hear 'mixed media'. Nice work! :)
