It's Art Dahling

It's postcard time over at Artful Times, and the challenge is to make a piece measuring 6x4, and incorporating letters and/or script.
I was in the mood for a little play, and getting messy, so out came the paints. I cut my 6x4 from corrugated card, and gave it a good coat of gesso. I then painted the mountains with acrylic daubers in yellow, orange and plum. The valleys were painted in Verday paints in bronze and copper, then sprayed with the patina spray, and stamped with a Stampotique script stamp.
I had great fun with the chipboard, after gessoing I scooped UTEE over the letters. The flowers were embossed with Moon Glow embossing powders, then inked into while they were still molten.
My Lonely Girl was stamped onto kraft card, and coloured with prisma pencils.
I really enjoyed this, so thank you very much ladies for the fab challenge x
