Aren't You Going to Run?

Hi Everyone
There has been a lack of posts from me these last 2 weeks mainly as there has been a lack of spare crafty time, work has been really hectic and I've just had no time at all to spend making anything. With a welcome day off today I have had the chance to finish off a canvas that I started ages ago and it also fits in with this weeks challenge over at Stampotique Designers Challenge where the theme for the week is "Use Only 2 Stamps".
The 2 stamps I have used is the scissor wielding "Penelope" and "Bla Bla Bla"

This is a 6" x 6" box canvas. Background has been made with various paints and stencils. I have stamped the Bla Bla Bla stamp with Dylusions black paint. Penelope has been stamped and coloured using Prisma Colour pencils and added to the canvas with gel medium.

 I have also added some torn strips of washi tape. Book text has been cut out to add my sentiment, it just made me smile when I found it.

Hope you like it and I'll hopefully see you soon as normal service resumes!!
