Italian memories (wednesday stamper "italy" challenge)
This is quite a sombre canvas page for the Wednesday Stamper "Italy" challenge. It is dedicated to all those poor people who lost their lives in the recent earthquake. The background is a mixture of material, napkins and lace. I have stamped onto metal and embossed an old coke can for the shrine. The image is printed onto fabric and is surrounded by black lace as it reminds me of the black mantillas/headscarf that Italian widows wear. I have stamped used teabags with a church and some latin phrases and have sewn them on.
