Mixed Media Monday - Gold



Created for the Mixed Media Monday Challenge. The arch was first sponged with Tea Dye Distress Ink, then , overstamped in Walnut Stain. A dilute gesso wash was painted over the top of this. The shrine was stamped onto tea coloured card and cut out. The collage image is by Paperwhimsy. A gold crown, wings, and border were added. Stamps by Stampers Anonymous, Invoke Arts & Lost Coast Designs.
