Boy - Tunnel Of Love!

My grandson... a great reason to keep going!! He was about 3 1/2 years old here, crawling through a tunnel in a fantastic children's playground. I loved the swirls in this photo, and so I have made it into an artsy piece by using chalk inks, direct to paper, to extend the photo image. I have enhanced the surround by using my new, fabtastic Inktense pencils - superb to work with (this was the first time) in order to build up the colour and texture. The challenge is from Sunday Stamper, at Ink on my Fingers, boy/boys. The stamps are swirls and words from a UMount plate, and my crooked heart from Hero Arts. A dash of glitter glue finishes off the edges. Thanks for looking - he loved that I was doing this while he crafted here with me... he is now nearly 5, and a GREAT stamper in the making!!!

What a great way to mount a precious photo. I've bookmarked that challenge site as I'm looking to do something other than sketches.
