Frida - Lost but not Forgotten

Hi Everyone
I hope today finds you well. 
I am continuing my mission to ink up stamps that haven't seen the light of day for a while. This Frida Kahlo stamps by Lost Coast Designs is one of those stamps so I've given her a little outing that I hope you like.

I have used a gelli print as my starting background and then stamped Frida directly onto the gelli print using my stamping platform as when there is a lot of black on the stamp it takes a couple of goes to get a good impression over paint, well I find it does.
I have then added some stencilling and some stamping. I work on the stamping platform so anything I cover over with stencilling, in this case the text, I can re-stamp over anything I've added to the background. I have also added a bit of colour to her face using coloured pencils which gives her a slightly different tone than the background. All has been mounted onto a white card blank even though it doesn't look white (bad photo)
Have a fabulous day
see you soon and thanks for stopping by
