Skinny Saturday - Open theme


I've been messing about with Claudine Hellmuth's technique doing image transfers with Ranger acrylic dabbers. It's a bit fiddly but I'm quite pleased with this result and I like the distressed look it gives. It accidentally turned out the right size for Skinny Saturday's open theme. You get a better idea if you click on the pic to enlarge it.
