Bold, purple, grungy, stripes, checks, circles... That was the inspiration. If there is one stamp I love it must be the black&white leggings. Of course one can only use it about once a year becaue it is so memorable. But what the heck, time for it was now.
Background was treated with inks flicked with water for effect. Then came the bubble wrap texture, a purple checkered sticker for under her feet, the magnificent legs, colored in with more white and more black, and finally the sentiment and the shift key. (Butterfly was part of the background.) I (mis)treated the edges with my scissors, but honestly, the grunge effect is not worth noting.
All in all, this was a leap from my comfort zone with surprisingly nice results. See, taking risks pays off!
