Gesso... my new friend

I have been wanting to play with this stuff for so long.... yesterday I finally picked some up using Hobby Lobby's 40% off coupon!  Then I started picking the brain of my friend Michele, she calmed my nervousness and got me going.

I made this to enter in Unity Stamp Co.'s Friends with Flair

Butterfly Stamp - Unity Stamp Co. KOTM Summer Love

Liquitex Gesso

Inks - CloseToMyHeart Sorbet, Sunset & Juniper

Grey Cardstock - Stampin' Up

Ribbon - wired edged from His & Hers (Hobby Lobby)


Well, how did I do?
