Helping Hands


Created for the Mixed Media Monday Challenge where the theme is Helping Hands. I started by stamping and masking the main image, then sponging ink around it in Adirondack Butterscotch, Stream & Clover. I then stamped the background with a script using Stream ink, and then again with ink splatters in Brilliance Moonlight White. The quote is computer generated, sponged with Strem and edged with Clover. To finish, German Scrap borders wre added. These were coloured with Alcohol Ink in Stream.
