Inspirational Words


Created for the Mixed Media Monday Challenge. The background uses the cling and scrunch technique with Adirondack Colour Wash spray in Denim & Sticky Fingers lustre spray in Aqua. This was stamped with a numbers background in StazOn Ultramarine, and the collage image was then applied. The text was stamped onto paper sponged with Adirondack Pool ink, and then edged with StazOn Ultramarine. The lustre spray has made the card very shimmery IRL.
