Spread your wings

Isn't this the prettiest stamp you've ever seen!
I recently received this Beautiful set of
Darkroom Door Stamps
it's called 'little dreams'
and just couldn't wait to ink them up

I just love Gesso at the moment, it's getting used on everything!

so I brushed some gesso on the cardstock first, it gives cardstock a 'canvas' finish,

then stamped the pretty image, then more gesso all around the outside of the image, over the top of the bits of the stamp I didn't want to be seen, (much more fun then masking)

I really like the Making Memories note worthy pads at the moment too, so there's a little corner of one at the bottom of this ATC too (it's a little hard to see the photo)

then applied a heap of Fancy Pants rub-ons, and then for an interesting touch I went over the whole thing with Jo sonja's gold iridescent glaze, you only see this when you tilt the card.

ooohh it's cold here tonight,

:: our winter has really hit Australia ::
