Deb's birthday

I had such fun making this for Deb. It was inspired by the class that I did with Sue Roddis recently. You can always rely on Stampotique stamps to add humour. Again it's ripped up books smooshed with distress inks and sprayed to blend, with an added rubon, some grungeboard, German scrap painted black and the Stampotique stamps.

You can't see the added sparkle in the top pic so here's a close up.

Even though I don't own any Stampotique stamps, whenever I see artwork using them I cannot help but smile - very quirky. Wonderful artwork. Lynne M x
