Man of Letters

The 4x4 Friday challenge is to use sequin waste or an equivalent in stamps in some way on your art work.
I have sponged through a piece with various colours as I like the depth it gives to the background. The sequins I have are not quite the right colour, so I used a spiral clip instead.


---

Stamps : Paper Artsy Letters 5; Stampington Fresh Flowers Elements

Inks : DI Broken China, Peeled Paint, Weatherd Wood and Faded Jeans; Archival Grape; DI refill Antique Linen

Extras : Perfect Pearls 'Pearl'; Spiral Clip; Sequin Waste

love YOUR 4x4! Great warm colors...I like to use my sequin waste most often to make this textural effect as well. I almost never use the actual material in my pieces! LOL
