I did three of them - I made the backgrounds first - I did a thick layer of gesso first and removed part of it with a piece of kitchen roll - it gave a great texture and so I left it to dry. After that I added more paint and used a Kay Carley stencil and the white gesso again.
To each I added a TH sentiment and a Zinskiart mini cut and colured!
This one looks quite surprised...
and this one very coy!!!!
I wish to enter this into the paperartsy challenge here.
Off to do some job hunting!!!
