I got that sentiment from Pinterest. I was going for a simpler background this time and I almost made it. I just can't resist adding a bit more stamping and well, I got a color on there I didn't like in permanent ink and well, more paint was required...
The purple is a mix of paint and modeling paste. It still amazes me every time I use orange on a project that I used to think I didn't like orange. One of the many wonderful things about our hobby is you get to do things on paper and canvas you might not put in your wardrobe or home. It is just so fun to play!
