Technique Junkies - Clear Coat Collage

Another fantastic technique from the latest Technique Junkie newsletter. I was inspired by a tin sign that I bought awhile ago at Hobby Lobby. It has a vintage postcard background which I was going to try to replicate, but while looking for stamps I came across a crackle stamp from I Brake for Stamps and ended up heading it a totally different direction!

The rest of the stamps are from various Oxford Impressions plates. That's one of my favorite things about OI sets - they all work so well together. The trim at the bottom is my favorite Baroque Border from RockCandy Studios.

I am so happy with how this turned out. Coloring is definitely not one of my strong suits, but I'm trying to improve!
