Abstract!

I have been following with interest Ellen Vargo's posts on the Paper Artsy blog, and loosely followed her instructions to make an A4 abstract background to use on cards. Here are the first 2 I have made.
I have used metallic acrylic paints in various colours, added some subtle stamping, some torn dictionary pieces, and then stamped the flowers from my JoFy set. The 2 sentiment stamps are from Darkroom Door.
