Back to Black - Sunday Stampers

This week, Hels was inspired for her Sunday Stampers challenge by the sad death of AmyWinehouse, with the song title Back to Black, so we are to use black this time.  Such a tragic waste, of a young life - so sad when people get addicted to drink and drugs.

Anyhow, it's taken me a while to get round to the challenge but this is what I've come up with.

I covered a large chip jigsaw piece with some of the music paper from the 7Gypsies "Paddington" pad, and swiped Black Soot DI round the edges and stamped the Tim sentiment using the Vermillion archival ink - it seems kind of an apt thought for Amy - and a grungeboard A painted with silver dabber paint and accented with Vermillion ink.  The eye is one of Wendy's - probably should have been black eyeshadow given Amy's bold eye makeup!  RIP Amy Winehouse.
