Well, that and then a programme I watched about the persecution of Catholics in the 1600's that really got me moving!
The stamp I used has always made me think of someone talking to a hidden other person. Now I realise that the person was the priest - locked up in his priest hole, being warned to keep quiet!
They must have been terrifying times, especially when soldiers would hang around for days hoping that the priest would either get hungry or smelly enough to detect!! One place on the programme was Salmsebury Hall near Preston, a lovely place to visit especially with children.The image is LPC011 which I stamped in Jet Black archival onto a painted background of Snowflake, Concrete and Nougat.A little bit of text stamp - PA Mini MN76. A little bit of colouring with distress markers then the smeared Petroleum Jelly that I sent hubby of to the shops for(he was going for a walk anyway!)
I used Bora Bora paint over the jelly and image and then - wow!!! I love this effect and I'll be using it again (and again)!!!
I decided to use crackle paste mixed with Concrete Fresco paint through a stencil, but then decided I couldn't wait any longer so used my heat gun on it! I loved the puffy effect I got and with nothing else to hand, used my trusty Adirondak silver dabber paint to sponge on to the puffy bits.
The cross came from some jewellery I bought at Primark in a sale ages ago.
Finally a key stamped in dabber silver and some shiny fibres and ribbons.
