FRIDA AGAIN



I've been making a pile of these for a Frida swap I'm taking part in. I took the background colour from the colour of the chair - and it's a sort of coppery colour. I don't know what it is about copper but I'm just crazy about it at the moment, and the copper scrap at the bottom just seemed right. I used a crackle stamp on the background because I thought how much her life was fractured by the terrible injuries she suffered, and the crown is above her because despite this she became a celebrated princess of art. Exhibit A is there because she painted herself and so showed her inner self for those who could see, and the wording just speaks for itself.

Fantastic Rosie I have come to know Frida through both Linda and yourself.
I love the background and have been searching for A crackle glaze stamp but all of them are I think to big a pattern for ATC's.
Yours is just right..would you tell me where you bought it from please.
