I am anOther Mother...

Hi all and welcome to May.
The theme for this month's challenge is .....
which really represents all that VLVS! is.
it is THE stamp company you come to if you just want to have your say.
With a dash of Attitude..
and you know what. THAT is exactly what I LOVE about VLVS!.

In saying that. This first share of mine is pretty tame...

I started with the background in my art journal. 
I scraped some Gesso and Some crackle on the background
added some Oxide Ink in Victorian Velvet. 
Using the same colour I stamped some background stamps all from Plate 1455
Double Coffee Rings and Mesh Texture stamps.
I then stamped again using Momento London Fog ink with:
Double Coffee Rings, Mesh Texture and Tape X 
(all Links for stamps below)
once I stamped it all I spritzed a little water over the top to tone it all down.

Then I stamped my main focal images: Banksy Boy Planting and I am Banksy's Mother.
 As you can see I hadn't made up my mind the background for these so I stamped them with Stazon Ink on several things: Book paper, Index cards, and Clear plastic.
I also stamped the Smear/Smudge in Oxide ink, and Bubble Wrap Texture in stazon onto some masking tape. 
Added some Stencilling to the background and then I started to layer it all up.
and finished with a Stabilo Border, some stitching and some splatters....
It is mother's day here in Australia today and my kids are at their dads until later today.
So I had some me time and created a page and thought something mothery would be fitting.

"I am Another Mother"

so the clear plastic I stamped on was a new product for me.. 
while I like how it comes out, I'm not the greatest fan of the edges 
but it worked a treat...
