Thoughts. Pen Pot








Stamps Used:


Morning all, Mark here with today's make. It  has been a little while since I did one of these pen pots so here we go. All the stamps this time are all from the same set called Thoughts and I love the stylized faces.
The sentiments are also from the same set.
The pen pot is from the MDF man, I love his stuff, so many great things to work on.
I started by giving the pot two coats of Decoart's white Americana paint.. When this was dry I applied Indian  Turquise, Limeaid and Wisteria applying them in splodges and smearing out with an old credit card.
This idea was inspired by Andy Skinner's latest canvas.
The images have been stamped with archival ink and the edges of the pot have also been swiped with archival ink.
The rim and inside of the pot have been painted black and the whole thing was given a thin coat of Decoart's Satin Gloss Glaze.

Thank you for stopping by xxx
