Triptych

It's time for another STAMPOTIQUE DESIGNERS CHALLENGE....I can't believe how quickly the time goes between challenges! Ayway this time you are challenged to create a TRIPTYCH card.
 Here is my example.
 This is one of my all time favourite Stampotique stamps.




Change of subject.....more of my life here in Kazakhstan. Today we went to a huge market called BARAHOLKA.....when I say huge I mean HUGE....it stretches down both sides of a 4km stretch of road!
 This bloke was selling DHOMBRA....local guitars.

 This was our friend Kyle trying on fur hats......not something I would buy personally!!

 Cooking and selling shashlick (meat kebabs) by the side of the road............

 .....selling fruit and veg......

 ....see that little clay mound? it's a clay oven called a tandoor (same as in India) that is used to cook bread by the roadside.

Great triptych card. I like the black, white, grays and blues, they all work so well for this card and it's a palette of colors you don't see often. I really like how you did the brick showing through. You do great work. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.
