Two Zuni Pots, Lg. Inside Rope Frame

“Zuni Pot, Lg.” was stamped in Memories black on glossy paper which had been created with a handmade mosaic stamp (made with rubber scraps) by dabbing fluid chalk reinkers (colors used were warm green, azurite, yellow ochre and warm red.) on a make-up sponge in a couple of colors for each pot and the pots were cut out to be mounted inside the frame.  “Frame #6, Rope” was stamped in Memories black and colored with a tan marker. The area inside the rope border was made with the ColorBox direct-to-paper stylus tool using Brillance Pearlescent Beige. The center design of the pots was colored black with a marker and the center of the pot design was embellished with glitter. The pots were mounted inside the rope frame with one being placed a little lower and in front of the other pot so as to overlap part of it giving the appearance of one pot being in front of the other.
