Scrapwest Challenge - Celtic Inspired


This week's challenge - set by myself - is Celtic Inspired. I recently bought a plate of celtic stamps and thought I had better use them so this is the result. Its a 9x7 canvas and was painted black over gesso and rice paper. I then used silk outliners to draw the gold designs, some gold leafing onto laminate adn stamps. The finished result was originally just a black background but it just wasn't right. I have now added various gold and purple metallic glazes, metallic rub-ons and pearl-ex poweder to add a bit of interest.
