Ismaki challenge 15

Here is my version of this week’s Ismaki sketch: An A5 size card. It's for the SBS13 swap so close your eyes Linda! I made up the ‘long sentence’ the challenge calls for and it’s in French so I hope it is correct: ‘Sur le voyage, nous sommes tous sœurs’ = On the journey, we are all sisters.

First Hampton Art stamp decoupaged with 2nd layer of the woman. Second Hampton Art stamp uses just a small part of the stamp to give me the 4 squares I needed. These were both stamped with black Brilliance and coloured with Distress inks (Frayed Burlap & Shabby Shutters): Stamped these on to waxed paper and picked up and mixed the colours in a mixture of sponging, painting and dragging the distressed edges through the ink.

Sentiment printed on to pale brown Papermania vellum; green-gold paper from The PaperMill shop, Papermania brad, paper flower also coloured with Distress inks.
