Everybody Art Challenges

Good morning, a bit more air about today, but still some rain lurking - we need it my hubby says !

This weeks Everybody Art Challenges is a sketch from Tina. I have used a new stamp from Magenta 41017K stamped in versafine sepia and embossed with detail clear onto a background created by sponging sunflower, citrus and pumpkin Stayzon onto glossy cardstock, then spritzing with Tim Holtz blending solution which makes the colours bleed. My DP is Daisy Bucket and the scalloped strip has been created by stamping an unmounted border stamp (sorry no idea of origin) onto the offcut from my main image ...... I was once accused of overstamping this one, but the dots and lines are all part of the stamps rustic look ! Circles were cut with nesties on the bug and some brown dots added to finish.
