Curious with the new Distress Colors

Have you ever locked yourself into a creation with colors or patterns.....and then things don't really work the way you envisioned?   That's what happened with this Compendium of Curiosities challenge:  Faded Layers (p. 43 in Tim's new book).   I just wanted to use the new DI colors, but my masking and stamping turned out to be  strange, at best.  And I had the rosettes I wanted to use, too.  It's really a mish-mash of "Tim-stuff."  (Although I used two different masks, they barely show up in the finished product.)

yeah, but whatever....it looks great!! Sometimes our projects take on a life of their own and paint or make themselves...that is cooool...

Love your mish-mash! You really used the colors beautifully. My masking got a bit lost too - I think it's nice just to have it in the background anyway.

Hello Evelyn
I think this Tag that you call a mish-mash is just stunning, it is vibrant and eclectic. The Bg is just wonderful and wherever your masks are who cares, the end result is just beautiful.

Did a good job Evelyn. I like the way this came together and I love the rosettes.
I am waiting for my new colors to arrive.

It's spectacular, Evelyn! If that's a mish-mash, then mish-mashes are the coolest thing EVER! Great use of color, and the rosettes are FABULOUS!
