Anecdotes and Aspidistra

Click here for the October Card Chain Challenge sign up

Hello.  Welcome.  Look, ye olde ancient NBUS!  Darnell will be pleased.  I've had this altered pages mythology stamp set for an age.  Finally decided to stamp up a storm with this lovely Medusa.   Google says she should be ugly but artistic license rules the day...........

Gone with some autumn colours and some tone on tone stamping inspired by this MFP tutorial.  So, I stamped Altered Pages Medusa with black archival ink and watercoloured her with distress inks.  I gave her some shoulders and stamped the tiny Rubber Dance Textured Flowers stars in another shade of green.  I watercoloured the background with shades of yellow and orange distress and stamped parts of the large Rubber Dance Maple Leaf in dark orange distress.  The tape at the bottom is homemade.  Painted with red acrylic and stamped with black acrylic paint.  The sentiment is a Unity stamp.  I added gold detail and dots using a gold pilot marker and a green rhinestone to finish.  

I made a set of three.  Swapsies anyone?

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
