Stand Up, Ladies, For Your Rights!
Time for another Creative Expressions creation....and this one is sooooo green....lots of recycling...and eco green paints!
The latest set of stamps from "Creative Expressions" are from Wendy Vecchi Studio 490...the voice of art...
The lady really put me in mind of the suffragette movement and I was instantly thinking of blue stockings and education for women..Hence the blue dress (couldn't see her stockings!)and physics/engineering theme.
So what are the green aspects....the cogs are all cut from fruit juice cartons...coloured with alcohol inks, the pin is from a white stuff garment I happened to buy, the chain is from a Christmas cracker that I inked with alcohol inks to make it a brassy colour. The tag and clock are all cut from mount board cut offs that I got free from the local picture framer.
I coloured the base tag with the Eco Green paints...using the crackle technique shown "here"
In case you haven't guessed it this is me...not quite a blue stocking...but graduated at York Uni in Chemistry in '87 now looking forward to a new career in 2012!
