TCR Release #114

Here is this weeks release

Lovely rich colours with the addition of the gold....very nice to work with!

Shimmerz Paints assisted in the spray and the droplets
Licorice Spritz
Hot Fudge Vibez
This was done on the rice paper, so an interesting effect with the wet mediums.

Gesso and a credit card added the texture, with machine stitching here and there.

I enjoyed this one!!!!
