To Give


I randomly applied grunge paste to the background, painted it in various colours of fresco paints. Coloured the arch with the bronze metallic pan pastel and then decided to rub over the grunge paste with it too!! The LP image was stamped onto crackly tissue paper in black stazon and glued with mod podge. 

The reason I chose the words 'to give' is because Susan at Stamp Diva sent me the hand stamp (left) by mistake, but had missed out one I did order, Goddess Cartouche (right). So I contacted her and she not only told me to keep the one she'd sent by mistake but sent the one I did order free of charge ie no further postage costs.


So I used parts of the new stamp to randomly stamp in the blank spaces on the background.

Love the colours on this piece Sam and those stamps are fab ('cept for the wood, lol). That was good of Susan. Must take a look at Stamp Diva (new to me)!
