Pure Innocence

I made this little hanging piece using one of my Design Team stamps from

I used this beautiful Stampsmith photo stamp, with Versamark Watermark pad, and then applying grey chalk over the top, to give a really soft finish... I love the way the image came out, so soft and 'floaty'. I added a couple of computer generated words, then sandwiched the stamped image inbetween 2 pieces of acetate, and then the frame I cut from basic grey printed paper. Stitched it and added the lace, flowers, 7 Gypsies handle, some twisted pearl cotton, maria george crystals, and well there you have it...
