For my mixed media I used ink and acrylic paint. I think those two count as mixed media. I first used my text stamp with ink. Then I used red acrylic paint on the polka-dot stamp and stamped over the text.
I actually sketched the image on my card! If it looks like a dress (or shirt) to you then....well....we'll call it a miracle! I am not able to draw. Honestly, I can almost make stick figures resemble stick figures. A few months ago, on a whim, I bought this sketch book "Doodling in French: How to Draw with Joie de Vivre" by Anna Corba. WOW! This book is amazing! I've practiced several sketches from this book and I actually sort of look like I know what I'm doing. I really enjoy this book. I used that book to help me with the dress (or shirt) image on my card.
