Like the Phoenix she rises

I bought some old but gorgeous stamps from a friend who was having a craft clear out. She has always had a really good eye and a knack at tracking down stamps that are a little bit unusual and different. So when I saw she was selling this stamp I jumped in there quick as it is one I've always loved.
The stamp does have a cat on it but for my purposes I cut the cat away when I was cutting the image out.

Now she is a little saucy, and not to every ones taste so I will warn you there are naked breasts (only in rubber stamp form) in the following pictures.
The piece is on a mountboard base, about 12inches in height.
Layers of acrylic paints, stamping ink and alcohol ink and gilding flakes.
The bee is symbolic of the Empress and feminine energy and I thought it went perfect with this piece.
