Not brilliant but I wanted to try the stamps out. May have to remount and embellish – or I would if I had more time!
This one was really dark so I added some white pen highlights, which lightened it a bit… must get the white acrylic out and do my favourite thing with text.  The mica inks look gorgeous in real life – bits of shiny teal glimmer through.

This was inspired by the Art Journey Blog.  Love these colours, as you may have noticed, and had these stamps a while, but haven’t had chance to use them. 
You’d think that with no time to play, I wouldn’t have been buying stamps, eh?  Errrr, think again!  I have a big basket full of those I’ve accrued over the last six months (beginning with October’s Port Sunny show) and have hardly used – including some which were birthday pressies from my lovely friends. Something to look forward to.

Great backgrounds Cath and lovely images. Great you've found time to play.

Hope your course is going ok. Passed all my assignments, just got a personal skills presentation to present in the middle of May and write a reflective journal, then we are done for this year. Just finished for Easter for 2 weeks and then we miss a week in May for a bank holiday and our last Session is 29 June, so when you break it down, nearly done for this year, just one more year to go - lol xxxxx

The backgrounds are great Cath. Alsio the addition of the white pen really makes a difference.
Enjoy your weekend.
