The World of Folly and Pleasure

 The generation  of the Great Gatsby was  a world of lavishness, pleasure and folly.  Artistic Outpost has created a stamp plate with images from this era, styled to take us back to this date.
 I created the white background on this card applying mediums of  Gesso and Ranger Distress Inks.  To compliment the Gesso Background a simple technique of crumpling a paperbag and grazing with Distress inks...accentuates a male theme.   To add some bright color I applied Alcohol inks to the strip of metal.
Thanks for stopping by Artistic Outpost Blog
