Just because.....

Last night I found some more of the papers I had made with Paper Artsy paints a couple of weeks ago (here),  I was reluctant to cover them up as I was so happy with them so I tried to make something that let them show through.  I really need a lot more practice as this sort of thing but I had fun making it, I didn't water down the gesso enough so its left odd patches of white but I'll know better next time .The trees and the sentiment are stamped on tissue paper and adhered with gel medium.The couple and the dog were stamped and fussy cut, I love that little dog, its so cute. Trees and couple are Crafty Individuals and the wording is a very old Rubber Stampede wood stamp.I'd like to enter this into these challenges
