Mixing with the Color Wheel

Hello All! 

I found some time to play along with the SCS Mix-Ability Challenge.  This week we are to play with color wheel.  Use a cool color and add a pop of a warm color or use a warm color and add a pop of a cool color.

 The best thing about this challenge is if you don't like the way something is turning out, you can just cover it up with your choice of medium and try again! 
I started with a background cs in Naturals White and stamped orange flowers on it.  That did not work AT ALL, so I covered it with blue acrylic paint.  That did not work either, so I added a layer of gesso.  I painted a small swatch of burlap with blue acrylic paint and randomly daubed it on the background.  It was a little too intense and with too much contrast, so I painted over the whole thing with a wash of purple reinker.  Then it was too dark so I spritzed it with Mister Huey's calico white ink.  I dry embossed it to give it some dimension and then dabbed a craft white ink pad over the raised areas.  Called it done! 
The oval was cut out with a SU oval Framelit.  The frame is popped up on dimensionals.  I added some threads of burlap to give added texture to the frame. 

Thanks so much and have a blessed spring weekend!
