I began by painting the letter rack in a blue acrylic paint, when this dried I painted a further coat in white and before it had dried completely, I swiped over with a baby wipe.
I masked and stamped all over with a black archival ink pad.
The images were coloured with Derwent Inktense pencils and the whole thing was distressed with Brushed Corduroy.
I will be entering this project into the foloowing challenges:-
That Craft Place - Anything Goes
Pan Pastel Challenge - Alter It
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
