Grungy Saturday/ Mojo Monthly!

Woo Hoo.. Finally I get to re-join in with Grungy Monday's all be it a bit late this week.. I had a few teething troubles to start {in that everything I touched went horribly wrong}, so I left it a few days and finally my brain kicked back into mojo flow and I created this ickle offering after watching the master at work of course.
I re-used the mini canvas that was one of my naff efforts by just ripping the canvas off it so I was just left with the wooden frame, I inked the wood with expresso and stonewashed alcohol ink,  I then backed it with book page mounted on card.
I inked a domino with the same colours and then stamped one of my new Artistic Outpost images in blue stazon. I also used the blue round the edges of the frame to give it a nice finish.
Not the most elaborate project i've ever done but i'm happy with it after all the disasters that occurred before it lol
As 'hinted' by the lovely Sarah, I am also sharing my piece over @ my mojo monthly
 A fantastic place to be inspired and also to try and help inspire others.
Stay Inky

WOW! I love your stamp but I also admire your technique. It seems you have invented a "faux marble" technique! I am not kidding. I think your frame and your domino looks like blue marble.Congratulations for that.
