Chestnut Theme on Gingersnap Creations

"Read" is the Chestnut Theme this month on Gingersnap Creations. My card features a stamp of artist Winslow Homer's "The New Novel."   After coloring the image with watercolor markers, I covered the surface with ultrafine clear microbeads from Pennywise Arts.  I like the 'sugary' effect...click on the smaller image for a close-up.
