I love you

Hi all,

I got last week a new paint called Rusty Paper. And thought would like to try out what it can do.
Somehow, I thought I would give the sketch from Sketchabilities, the challenge vintage from Scrap Africa and Cards und More with challenge no. 115 Swirls Flourishes a try with this paint.
Here's the sketch and the moodboard...

and here's my layout...
Well, to be honest, this one was a failure. I somehow spilled the Dylusion Spray (Vibrant Turquoise) by mistake. Can't undo it so I decided to continue. A little bit way off my normal color but still have to try it somehow. I started with the white paper since I thought I wanted to make my own background. 
I used  a lot of stamps like before on my corners and use some gesso to calm the Rusty Paper Ink which in the middle of the process was a little bit to strong for the white paper. Sprayed some Dylusion Ink here and there. And somehow (finally) I was happy with the result.

Would like to thank Sketchabilities, Scrap Africa and Cards und More for the challenge, and to thank you all my readers to always come back and enjoy my creation.
Hugs,
Merry
