Kick Start Your Art challenge Day 1

I bit the bullet and stopped waffling.
I signed up for the week long Kick Start Your Art challenge at 
They provide you with a daily prompt, and then you have 24 hours to
complete a journal page (or two) using the given prompt.
Today is day one of the challenge, and the prompt is
3 Primary Color Drips.

that I heat embossed with red glitter. 
I used various stencils on the Dylusions background, too.  

This is one of my favorite rubber stamps ever! 
His name is "Zombie", and he's from the
I sat him atop some washi tape after stamping the date on the bottom.
I framed the entire piece using a black Sakura gel pen, which worked
remarkably well on the Dylusion inks.

Hope it qualifies, but then again, it is MY personal journal page, right?
There is no wrong or right way to do this.
See ya tomorrow!
