From Florence with Love

Today I thought I'd just share a quick post with an ATC, something I don't tend to make very often, but I came across a new challenge that is for ATC's only!  The theme this week is 'Anything Goes' so I had a play with a new stamp from Deep Red called 'Born to Ride'.

This was FUN!  She is such a quirky character riding around on her vesper with scarf and hair flying in the wind.    Two of my friends recently were travelling (separately) through Europe and this stamp just makes me think of them putt-putting along the cobblestoned streets of Rome? Florence? ...........?

The background is 'peeled paint' and 'stormy sky' Distress Inks, edged with 'black soot' for definition.

The lady (I think she should be called 'Flo' - short for Florence) was coloured using watercolour pencils.

I have a few more new stamps just waiting-in-the-wings to be played with, so I'll be back again soon.

I'm entering this ATC in this weeks challenge at Wicked Wednesday.

Happy crafting!
