Layers of Paint! An Amsterdam Experiment

I had a play with my Amsterdam Acrylics to unwind after work and this is where I ended up.
I started by using an old store card to smear three colours of paint over a #8 manilla tag to create a background (Yellow Ochre, Naples Yellow Red and Greenish Yellow).
Next, I dabbed Permanent Green Light through the mini script stencil from Claritystamp.
Once dry, Yellowish Green was added through the petite dotty wave stencil (also Claritystamp).
To create a focal point, Acorn Archival ink was blended through the aperture of one of the Elegant Ladies stencils by Claritystamp.  Where the coverage wasn't adequate, Vandyke Brown Amsterdam acrylic paint was added using a detail brush.
I recently acquired the Snarky version of the Small Talk sticker book by Tim Holtz.  One of the comments was cut into two and added at the bottom.
To finish, the question mark and exclamation mark from the Word Chain Alphabet (Claritystamp) were added using Versamark ink and heat embossed with detail black EP.
