Wednesday Stamper "Green an dPurple"

The theme at Wednesday Stamper is to create something using purple and green. Not a colour combo I would naturally choose, but hey, nothing like a good challenge...
I chose the image because of it's colouring, felt that the lady looked rather like a greek goddess, so that's what prompted the words. I covered it all in UTEEH to give it a glass like appearance. When cold I cracked it and then rubbed vintage photo distress into the cracks. Not very successful. The background stamp I think is a Tim Holtz but I can't quite remember.

Astrid, how very gorgeous.. I really love that UTEE cracking technique. Thanks for reminding me that it exists. I think your colors are beautiful and so is your Greek goddess.

PS - the clear bases are fun, aren't they? ;o)

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!
