Well .... this isn't quite my usual style, but I definitely had FUN! I made it for This Thursday's challenge which was to use something clear. Now this isn't necessarily my strong point but I thought I'd have a go - so I stamped one of my Invoke Arts houses onto acetate, which I coloured with permanent markers. Then I masked the background to get the purple swirls and added the image with the acetate over the top. Then it seemed a bit bare looking and I went all zettiology .... not stamps I own, but I've been quite taken with some of the work I've seen done with them lately. These stripey shapes are actually a hat from a Paper Artsy plate, and the number and title are also Paper Artsy.
And the story ....? Well she's a bit of a way-out chick with a strong sense of altered reality (that'll be the mushrooms she's always smoking), so it doesn't particularly make any sense because it doesn't need to, except that it's her house and she lives at 59!
