I feel like dancing....

I am sorry its been a week since my last post, between work, life and other various traumas that life puts in our path, I haven't been able to blog.

I was contacted last week by a lady in America who was asking about my smiling beetle car stamp that I had got from Clevercut, and since she wasn’t able to get the stamp in the States I offered to send her some stamped images, anyway after a few emails we came to an agreement to send each other a set of 3 images stamped several times.

The card below is the card I sent with my images.
I played with my Adirondack alcohol inks again, this time on gloss paper with the blender, it was great fun and I loved the result. I simply stamped the image on white card stock, coloured it with Prisma pencils and blended with white spirit, and chalked the background. I matted it on to some coordinating green card stock and then blue card stock then the background I had created with the alcohol inks, and then black card stock and finally the base card! Each layer was finished with some dots in white, pale green or navy inks.
