The Art Forger
This month, my book club is reading a book called "The Art Forger," which is about the forgery of a Degas painting. (I enjoyed it; it's one of the better books our club has selected IMHO).
I grew up with a Degas ballet painting on my wall, so I couldn't resist this stamp when I saw it. I've never figured out how to properly use it. This time I tried stamping on watercolor paper and adding some watercoloring to it.
The layout is from the current Sketch Saturday challenge. I embellished it with a little "junk bow" made up of snippets of lace and ribbon and a ballet slipper charm.
I'm entering these challenges:
Sketch Saturday #383 -- sketch
Addicted to Stamps #167 -- Make your mark
The Ribbon Girl --Pastels
Crafty Sentiments -- pink
Word Art Wednesday #206 -- anything goes
Creative Inspirations -- anything goes
