Just Had to Share...

Hi per my last post...the old mojo had been playing up jump start it I sat at my desk looking at all my stash..I think it could be a case to too much choice so note to self to stop buying...although I am awaiting a parcel of stamps....oops...
Anyway, I have tucked away in a box some Paperarty Jofy Stamps that I have been coveting...I love their quirkiness  but haven't really been using them on my cards...I pulled the box from the shelf and had a little brain wave.  Instead of a card I would do a picture/painting. The thought of spending a few days painting little details kind of appealed.  I was just going to stamp away on watercolour paper and then use water colour paints...then I had an idea of white embossing so... set about stamping with versamark and white detail took a while as I did each stamp separately and had to think about the arrangement.  Unfortunately I didnt take a pic of that but here is the next step....

I used several set of stamps for this and as you can see started with the background...I used distressed inks for this and let each layer dry before add the next...
I really got into it...look at the mess on my it is finished...framed....

as you can see I added a quirky black and white border...
I know its all been done before but I am so pleased with it... I just had to share...
Thanks for popping by
