Little boat upon the sea

It's the second week of the 'Favourite Quote' challenge theme at Stampotique and I simply couldn't resist this little boat to go along with one of my favourite quotes from Kahlil Gibran.

So where is the quote?? These little box canvases are perfect for taking your design around and above:

To achieve a neat finish for my handwriting on such a rough surface, I wrote the quote on white tissue paper with a waterproof pen and then using plenty of PVA glue I stuck it in place, the tissue paper becomes invisible when the glue is dry.

I used lots of pastel coloured paints and Prismacolour pencils for colouring
and of course there is some glitter!!

The stamps I used are:
and Agatha Star (for the star)

Don't forget just by entering the challenge you are in with a chance of winning $30 - £23 approx to spend at the Stampotique online store. All of the details are right here.

Wishing you a lovely day, Sam xxx
