The increasingly inky and painty ramblings of a stampaholic, whilst kneeling on the floor. Yes, my knees do protest!

This is my first altered piece! I started yesterday by covering the frame in white gesso then 3 coats of Claudine Hellmuth paint (sky blue) . The stamp is from a Tim Holtz plate and the sentiment Wendy Vecchi. The paper flowers are prima , I went for this lime green for contrast as all the other colours I tried looked wrong, and I found a brad the right colour blue in my stash. The dragonfly was in a pack I've had for years and found last week when I was having a sort out. I have sprayed it with glimmer mists, using jazz blue, irridescent gold and then moss green to try and get the shade I was looking for. As I haven't found a little photo for the middle yet, I cuttlebugged a piece of metal with "tiny bubbles" to fill the centre.
