the new challenge is up at THE CREATIVE TYPE-
Here's my take:
The background is one I made a while back using paint, and stamps, and napkins, but I wasn't happy with it, so I didn't use it. However I never throw anything out, particularly mixed media attempts because sometimes they get better with more layers added, but actually, it looks OK as is in this layout.
