Inky!

It's been a while since I've been inky fingers...........and I've had this idea in my head for some time, ever since I bought this Sizzlits Stencil alphabet. I cut random bits of coloured card and used it to stencil letters with gesso onto hand painted papers....

I didn't like the result but did like the stencil bit with the gesso on!


So I spritzed with Adirondack colour washes and Glimmer Mists......It still needed something so I stamped with black Stazon ( Hero Arts stamps) and added text underneath... some plain and some coloured.

Still something lacking............... so I stitched each one in gold ....

Then stuck them all to a 12x12" canvas........the edges were a bit bare so............ they got covered in text!
Finished!
