BLACK ...

NOW TRADED
The Challenge at This Thursday is to use black - which seemed an ideal opportunity to use the Distress Ink backgrounds I made yesterday. I was experimenting with heavyweight water-colour paper which takes the ink very well, although the texture does affect the stamped image. I rather like the dots on her dress that this produces, but in future I might use the flatter side.

I was thinking about black as the colour of mourning but somehow this Paper Artsy stamp reminded me of an identity card or something ... so I added postmarks that made me think of passport stamps. Well I know what I mean anyway! I'm actually not that sure what this is about (do you have days like that?), so maybe one of you will tell me .....
