Arrrrrggggghhhhh, shiver me timbers matey!

Wednesday Stamper: Turquoise

Wednesday Stamper's theme this week is “turquoise”. I painted this background using Dr. Ph Martin Paint and Godelieve’s salt technique (still a little salt crystals stuck there in the upper right corner..see?). Lots of gold embossing, justjohanna rubber stamps, gold metallic paper…I flipped up the edges of the paper to kind of give this a treasure map sort of feel…piratey, eh?

Thanks for stopping by today!
