Stamping On Wood

Morning and would like to welcome my new follower GERRINA

While tidying craft room I found a piece of wood saved last year---I actually passed this in the street and sent my grandaughter back for it lol and finally decided to do something with it.
I covered the front with white acrylic and stamped the face with an Inkylicious stamp,craft mag freebie script stamp,gesso through a TH stencil and some purple distress ink round the edges.
I then had the bright idea of embossing round the edges with Baked Earth EP,Cosmic Shimmer Gold Gilding Polish and Distress Stain-too much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Too late!!!
