Another Distressed Gesso Background


This ATC I made is for a Yahoo group I'm in (New Inspirations) and is for this month's lottery. I had to choose this month's theme as I was lucky enough to win last month's lottery ATCs (vintage children). I picked 'Musicals - past or present' as the theme and I decided to base my ATC around 'My Fair Lady' with the luvverly Eliza doolittle - one of my favourite musical films.

The background is torn pieces of musical score, then layers of gesso and inks. I like the grungy look of this in contrast to the clean cut image of Eliza - which I thought was quite fitting to the story of the film!

I agree - the background brings the image out of the frame, so to speak. Brilliant card x

I love the contrast. Those Cecil Beaton b/w costumes are lovely, aren't they?
