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)!

Hi I'm Sam, 45, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 25 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 9 years and 0 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
