Wednesday Stamper

The theme at Wednesday Stamper this week is Gesso.

I applied the gesso to water colour paper with a credit card to make it smooth and while it was still wet stamped into it with a crackle background stamp.I dried it with the heat gun because I'm impatient and then rubbed in treasure gold rub and buff.
I printed the mother and child image on sticky back transparency .

  8. You have created a delicate lacelike look with the gesso that is gorgeous. It reminds me of frost on glass. Stunning piece.
