What can you do with rubber gloves!!!

Whilst on holiday in Italy at Easter, we watched street artists produce an array of different pictures, not least some chaps who used spray paints on glossy card.  I decided that I would have a go when we got home with our reinkers and this is what I came up with using a surgical glove and some tempting turquoise ink.  Of course the beauty of the spray paint is that it is oily and doesn't dry quickly and so the reinkers are not quite so versatile as the ink dries quicker.  I wasn't sure about this effect, but several folk have noticed it and commented on how much they liked it. 
The Sail Away a la carte stamp is great for those elusive masculine cards.  I stamped in staz on and then paper pieced the sails using scraps from the brights dsp stack.   The base card is pacific point and I trimmed a piece of the real red striped grosgrain and sealed the raw edge with a lit candle.  You of course need to be careful doing this that you don't set your house on fire or burn your fingers.  The spiral punch as ever was useful for some texturing along with silver eyelets.
