Paint your background!!

Hi folks, Back aagin today with another card for Stampotique. This week the lovely talented Corrie challenged us...............
Happy Wednesday everybody.  My first love in crafting is paint.  So, today I would like you all to use paint in your background.  Doesn't matter what paint or how you apply it, just have fun!

Painting is fun and I had a very messy afternoon

I painted my background with an enormous paintbrush sploshing freely :D
Transposing head and wings from 'lovelyarethesound'  onto moon girl's body was a giggle too, neither seemed to mind!


This pic, in the weak winter sunshine, shows the irridescence of the Pebeo paints especially on the grass and sky they positively glow :D The sentiment is topped by black ribbon from inside jumpers, waste not, want not LOL
Thank you for stopping by, hugs Gay xx

There are several of Coco Chanel's quotes that I love, and this is certainly one of them! And it is just perfect for the new figure you have created out of two of my favorite stamps! Background is also pure genius, my friend!
