Michelangelo-Creation of Adam

I have long loved Michelangelo's piece "Creation of Adam." I was so excited to see that I Brake For Stamps now has a stamp of them in the Stampinback line :) I did a great background several days ago called "Salty Glimmers" from the latest Technique Junkies newsletter and had to let it air dry. I used Color Mist Sprays and rock salt :)

Its a fun technique and they always come out different-and I love that! Around the image of the hands I dry brushed a little bit of white gesso-its not all that easy to see in the scan though. The paper underneath the hand is french text and I used a graphite pencil to draw lines through the text then brushed on some gesso to make the text more subtle.

Stamps used are:
