Wednesday Stamper - Flowers


These challenges are great for pushing me out of my comfort zone. Flowers would not be something I thought would be easy for me to do. I have made the background with acrylic paints, vaseline for a resist and a lovely copper glaze over the finished piece. I then layered, yes, you guessed it, another transfer, I cant seem to get enough of these and this poor lady looks so miserable. Have a nice day everyone - the sun is shining here and it is beautiful.
