Words of Wisdom

Words. Words. Words.

So I have decided to come out and play with a new stamp, and some new techniques, for the
Gingersnaps Creations Challenge "Words of Wisdom"

And my interpretation is from the book of words itself...
a dictionary!



I have torn some pages up from an old dictionary ~ and I pasted, inked, splattered and stamped over them.
And this has become my background.
The stamp I used as my focal image is from Stampers Anonymous.
And the technique that I have used to show this one off was shown to me by Shirl at
Shirls Cards
Called Out of the Box Technique.

Enjoy!
