The Wednesday Stamper - Women's history month


Patty has chosen a wonderful theme with lot's of possibilities this week :) I made the collage 'Pieces of history' on canvasboard 6,5x9,5 inches. I painted and stamped the background glued down some scrap paper at the top and bottom and layed out my paper tiles, drew an outline, removed the tiles and painted and distressed the border. To make the frame I distressed the small images with ink, glued them down, and distressed them further with grey paint. Finally I put glossy accents on them to make them look like tiles this doesn't show very well on the scan, but it's quite dimentional.
I stamped the words enchanted passion and used embossing around the main image and stamped a crackle ontop.

A closeup of the main image from collageimages at flickr.

Here's a closeup of the upper right corner. All the small 'tile' images are from paperstreet at etsy.

Thanks for the fun challenge Patty, and thanks for looking!!
