one shot...

here's another installment in the mixed media file.  on monday, tracy threw down a challenge.  she dared us to do something out of our comfort zone.  we had to create something using this quote, "let go of whatever holds you back and no longer serves you because you only get one shot in life."  check out her blog post here.  i saw a mixed media canvas the other day while surfing the web (my guess is on pinterest!) and of course can't find it now to save my life.  but what i got out of it was inspiration for this.  and i thought the quote went well with it.

stamps: hero arts
cardstock: fancy pants pp, basic grey pp, authentique pp
ink: burnt umber
paints:  acrylic, gesso, gelatos
embellishments:  glimmer mist; cardstock stickers-october afternoon, authentique, dear lizzy-american crafts
other:  india ink

here's a little more detailed view.

you should join along with the dare!!
