Octopode Factory Challenge - Music
As I said yesterday, here is some more Octopode for you.
I have been doing a few things for Lily over at The Octopode Factory and today they are starting a new challenge. The theme for the next 2 weeks is music.It can be a song a genre or even your favourite artist.
You do not need to use an Octopode Factory image but it is great if you do.
As you can see I went for one of Lily's David Bowie images, she has four available in her shop HERE, now in hind site maybe I would have asked for one of the other great images, but I really like the music Bowie was producing in his Ziggy phase. The hind site comes in not realising how much of a test it was to colour the damn make up ;) Having said that it really was great fun sitting in front of the lap top going through images of Bowie to get it as right as I could and I am quite pleased with how it came out.
He has been coloured with copics and clear embossed and mounted onto a tag cut from mount board.
I used some cosmic shimmer embossing powder and one of Neil Walkers new texture stamps stamped randomly, I then used some distress stain to colour the tag and over stamped again hap hazardly with a music stamp using black soot distress ink, the embossing acts as a resist so it is easy to wipe of and have the powder pop.
The letters are from Tim holtz and have been given a rub and buff with some treasure Gold in Topaz.
Thanks for stopping by. Hopefully you will join in the challenge over at The Octopode Factory
Have a great weekend x
