You and me together

The Stampotique Designer's Challenge is sponsored by Kathi this week.  She is asking for entries with music as inspiration.  I was inspired by Dave Matthews song "You and Me" and had to put these two characters together.

Mela and Hunk by Daniel Torrente make a happy couple and even happier against a painterly mixed media background.

I used a combination of acrylic and Inktense on a gesso surface.  I love taking a liner brush with diluted black acrylic and create some accents.  That little pop of black creates a visual balance with the black outline of the characters. The stamped images are stamped with Stazon, clear embossed then colored with Copics.
 I typed my quote and wet tore the paper edges.  Watercolor and Pitt pen accents the frame that gets stapled to the background. 
Thanks for taking a look.
