Ranger Challenge Canvas/ SSSS- Show us a button

I just finished  posting my current Ranger Challenge piece into the folder of the Yahoo group.Since I used buttons on this canvas, I am also entering it in the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge this week, which is Show Us Your Buttons. I really love these challenges. We had to use Jenni B paints. I used the only three colors of JB paint dabbers I own, chili powder, malterd milk, and chicken feed an a 5x7" canvas randomly. I then stamped the image onto a layer of napkin I separated using the plain white layer as I can't find any tissue paper since I cleaned my studio and threw it all away. LOL, using Archival coffee ink. I used Claudine's matte medium to adhere it to the canvas. I also stamped the verse with the same ink. Tore some tissue tape and laid it down randomly, then blended in some walnut stain distress ink onto the tape. Bvlended the whole canvas with some tea dye distress ink and glues down the music note buttons that I cut the shanks off with glossy accents. I love how this turned out and I need more of these paints. I love them!
