Tainted Love - Nigel's Desert Island CJ

I chose Soft Cell's Tainted Love for Nigel's CJ as I had an immediate vision of a tattered heart from love that had been taken from it's new and pure state to a battered and tainted state. I used paint and gesso and heated it to within an inch of it's life until it was bubbling and bursting and hopefully it's achieved the look I was after.





Close up you can see the dimension and texture created by the heated paint. The background stamp is Tim Holtz from Mixed Media. Hope it's ok Nigel :) - Sian
