Stamping with GESSO

Here is a card I made when I was experimenting for this months CAS Mix Up Challenge.

I used a brayer to apply the Gesso to the very old Hero Arts background stamp. Next I smooshed the panel over spritzed Distress Oxides. When it was dry, I wiped over the gesso with a damp cloth. I used the same inks to stamp the butterfly.  This is definitely my favourite small butterfly stamp from Hero Arts Antique Flowers and Butterflies.  The sentiment die is from Lawn Fawn. 

I'm sharing at the following challenges:-
