Sunday Stampers - Oh Boy


The warmer, sunnier weather has obviously sparked my desire for the sea or at least a large body of water with lots of warm sand and a castle by the sea (a cottage will do). I used the technique that I've described in older posts with a playing card as the base and layers of gesso, pages from the telephone book and gel medium. It is easy to stamp on the top of all of these lovely layers. This is my entry for this week's Sunday Stampers challenge.

I love the spanishy tiles. I'm going to go back and look at what you were talking about re playing card! Love it. Takes me to... Well... I don't know where, exactly. Definately somewhere nice, somewhere I havn't been in a while! Such delicate, meaningful work. X
