I stamped the seed heads in black archival, masked them then created the background using a joggles mask and distress inks (abandoned coral and mustard seed). I then removed the stencil and painted the heads with salty ocean distress ink. Finally I used a Tim sentiment at the bottom.
A closer look!
I'd like to enter this into the current lavinia-stamps-challenge-3-add-some-gems.
I'm off to the theatre tonight to see Bleak House - Looking forward to that!!! Big hugs to you!
