Wednesday Stamper


I like the background I created for this piece -- as a result of Wednesday Stamper's challenge to create texture. I added some alcohol inks and gesso to my background and then attached the silver mesh with clear adhesive. I then white embossed the edges. I liked the look quite a bit.
But as it's called Wednesday Stamper certainly some stamping was required. I didn't think I could stamp on this particular background, so I added one of my stamped perfume bottles. I had taken the perfume bottle from a magazine add and then stamped this Hampton Arts stamp and black embossed it. The neck of the bottle says Romance, but you have to look closely.
