Wings


Created for both the Tag Challenge, (Wings theme) and this week's Lot's To Do Challenge (Gesso theme) The tag was created by first spraying it with Adirondack colour washes in Denim, Eggplant and Lettuce. A layer of gesso was then swiped over the centre where the main image was to be stamped. Main image and borders were stamped in Brilliance Black, and the background stamped in Lettuce and Eggplant. All stamps by Paperbag Studios. Fibres added to finish.
