rubber resist take 3

I'm not a huge fan of this one, but I wanted to show you what an opps looks like. I used to do Pysanka, which is a specific method and style of creating wax resist Ukrainian Easter eggs. I haven't done any in years, and apparently I have forgotten all about layering colors over each other. For this card I made the base and embellishments first and then decided to create the background piece using rubber resist. Sadly for me I wasn't really thinking about colors mixing when I created this. I was going for yellow and blue, but what happens when you mix yellow and blue? you get green. opps. So this is a lesson in what not to do.
