Laugh, Smile, Dream


Created for the Wednesday Stamper Challenge where the theme is Orange. The background was coloured with Adirondack colour wash sprays in Cranberry and Butterscotch. This was then spritzed with a little water and dabbed with a tissue to lift areas of colour in random places. Next it was stamped with scratches in Mountain Rose, and large numbers in Versafine Black. Torn book pages was added, sponged with Butterscotch and Mountain Rose, then the collage image and text applied.
