Wednesday Stamper "Gesso"


Just back from the States, so this will be my first entry to a challenge in the New Year.
The theme at Wednesday Stampers is "Gesso". One of my favourite art materials as it is so versatile. Here I have used it in combination with collage.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
