Broken, Still Beautiful

Hello.  Welcome.   Over at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity we are doing a three day blitz of inspiration for the Tip Your Hat event.  We want to see your stamped anythings, with hats.  Anything hatty goes.  So get your hat on and hop on over.  You can link up until Midnight 14th September.  Here's Flying Egyptian wearing traditional headgear.

I used Lost Coast Designs Flying Egyptian and the sentiment is Carmen Veranda's Broken Look Beautiful.  

 I started by stamping Flying Egyptian with Potting Soil archival ink.  She comes with the hieroglyphs stone behind her.  Then I used the stamp off block to randomly stamp more of the hieroglyph image to fill in the space around my image.  I stamped the sentiment.  Ooops.  Sort that out later LOL

I masked the lady and smudged Tea Dye distress ink around and also edged the panel.  

I coloured the lady with distress inks and stamped and black embossed the sentiment on vellum.  I ripped the edges of the vellum and added gold embossing powder.  The end

Thanks for dropping by.  Hope to see you and anything with a hat over at the Lost Coast Portal to Creativity.  Hugz
