I found this striking image in a magazine and before anyone had the chance to read it, I'd torn out the page to use in a journal.

Actually I have to go back a step as it all started with the background which is a hand made stamp I'm a bit proud of. I cut it a while ago with a piece of Softcut lino cutting material but the chance to use it didn't come up until now.

I added a strip of gold metalic spotty tape from My Minds Eye which I didn't fully appreciate until I'd taken off the white backing paper and saw how cool it really is.

I painted the word imagine and cut it out to lift it up with foam pads over my background.

Have a good weekend

This is absolutely stunning! How clever to cut your own stamp, I am definitely going to 'steal' that idea as I came over to the blog to see where you had got it from! Thanks so much for sharing x

Oh My... Your stamp is fabulous!! How clever??!
You even painted the word which looks great too, perfect with the image. So glad I am not alone in leaving holes in magazines, lol... I think you should do a tutorial for stamp cutting, please? Tfs :)))
