Artistic Outpost May Blog Hop

     This month our theme is masculine. I chose the Steampunk stamp plate from Artistic Outpost.  My background was a disgarded tag from a previous project. I went over it with a bit of gesso, trying to keep the background color and texture but covering up my boo boo at the same time. And then I used a tree stencil with some gel medium.  I really like the effect it made after letting some ink drip down in the cracks. And then of course I just layered everything on top.
