I've been playing with the new stamps recently released over at Chocolate Baroque and have a piece on the Design Team blog today. Here's a brief recap of what I made, but the full details are posted on the DT blog.
I covered two ATC sized pieces of wood with gesso, and then painted them with Eco Green acrylic paint. I love this paint, as it has a lovely creamy consistency. I chose a lovely aqua and teal shade, which compliment each other perfectly. I then stamped some of the more detailed images onto tissue paper, and stuck those on with Claudine Hellmuth's Matte Medium, so that the tissue paper edges disappeared. I then decoupaged the less detailed bits over the top. I coloured my images with Polychromos pencils, and added some small brass charms, which accented the yellow tones on the images.
I used some chunky cogs for feet, and on top of the ATCs, then added some brass hinges to join the two pieces together.
I really enjoyed making this little project, I'll have another one to show you in a few days' time. Thanks for stopping by, xx
