Afternoon, Today I am sharing more of an experiment/ playing post rather than a truly finished piece.
If you saw my Facebook
post earlier in the week I received a wonderful package from Stampendous
full of stamps embossing powders and more. More about that soon ;)
I had time for a quick play the other day nothing really in mind more just to get a feel of the new products. I am loving the aged frantage embossing enamels.
The new elephant foam stamp
grabbed my eye straight away as it put m in mind of the wood blocks that are used for fabric printing.
It's quite an impressive kit you get the Foam stamp, one side is patterned the other is a plain silhouette, you also get the Rubber stamp that can be stamped over the silhouette and a little stencil to finish things off.
I painted a piece of canvas board using Decoart Media Fluids and a light spray of their black Media Mister. I used the stencil and did some random background stamping using the Vintage Note stamp from stampendous.
Next I stamped using Decoarts chalk paint, I wanted to use this as a shadow effect.
I off set and over stamped using versamark ink and heat embossed the Aged Teal embossing enamel.
Still playing around I offset and over stamped again using Stazon ink and sprinkled some rose gold embossing powder randomly, I also edged the canvas board with the aged teal.
Playing with the same ideas I used an off cut of wood this time and Decoart Chalky Finish paints for the background, stamped first with Stazon ink and then offset with the aged spice powder. I did the same with the Decorative Borders stamps.
Im still not quite there with the correct colour combos of powders but i'm having fun and learning ;)
Finally I had a couple of bisque hanging ornaments.
The bisque was painted black and then triple embossed using the Verdigris powder. This powder is made up of several different colours and shades and once heat set you get a beautifully speckled finish.
For this one I triple embossed using the chunky copper powder and stamped into the final layer using Andy Skinners clock stamp.
I let it dry and filled in the recessed areas with the verdigris powder and gave it a final blast with the heat gun.
Thanks for stopping by. xx
