An Alterted Existence


I visualize this guy as 1920's mobster.....he lead an interesting life, after all, he went upstairs in the end! .....and just maybe that's the dove of peace nesting on his head!!

Needless to say, you can see I had lots of fun making this tag.....love all the colors, paint, ink and stencils. Challenge #49 at the Everything Wendy Yahoo Group is to incorporate canvas in your art.....thus the wild canvas wings. Simon Says Stamp and Show is to use the latest distress palette of colors, Summer.
Hope everyone has a fun, long and safe weekend! hugs

Gerrie...I like your story about your mobster and hopefully he DID go upstairs. :) Your tag is very pretty. Love the background colors, the stamped image of the man and the wings behind him. Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
