Small art

the Arty Girlz challenge 65 is called small art ,anything as long as it's no bigger than an ATC.
I've chosen some stampboard of 2x 2inches, coloured it with Distress inks, stamped the ??? image with Ranger Archival coffee ink and the background is the French script stamp from Cornishheritagefarms and the other one is a squigly mini from Paperartsy .
A couple of coats of UTEE and some gold Krylon on the edges.
De uitdaging bij Arty Girlz is een klein object wat maakt niet uit zolang het maar niet groter dan een ATC is. Ik heb een stuk stampboard gebruikt van 2x2 inches. gekleurd met Distressinkt, stempel van ??? met coffee Ranger Archival inkt . De achtergrond is de French script van Cornishheritagefarms en de andere een Squigly mini van Paperartsy. een paar lagen UTEE en Krylon goud langs de randen.

You just reminded me that I haven't used stampbord in such a long time. If only I could create something as lovely as this!

Wish I could be so clever too - fabulous work.

I believe the image is one of the Gibson girls but couldn't tell you the make of the stamp.

What a lovely piece. And what a lovely picture on your blog. Beautiful and bonny Scotland by the sea. One of the most beautiful places in the world and that is coming from an Aussie who has only been to Scotland once but I have always wanted to go back and see more. I think it has a sort of magnetism!!
