The Stampman - Autumn

Suspect over the next few days there will be more time for me to craft, the TV is kaput little sky plus box is not working so someone from sky will be out on Wednesday to see to it ummmm one less distraction LOL

The feast of autumn colour continues with the latest The Stampman Challenge where the theme this fortnight is Autumn. Well if the Greenman is not a representation don't know what is.

Mask given a white gesso base followed by acrylic paints in greens orange buff brown yellow and red. This was followed by Glimmer Mists in green and copper and Tuscan Sunset and golden yellow and left to dry. Plain paper coloured with Big and Juicy (Spice) Spellbinders die cuts and TH leaves die used to cut leaves, bits of white paper still showing coloured with DI, leaves given a blast of Tuscan Sunset and the Golden Yellow. The now dry mask had Viva Ferro applied round the edges in Graphite and Orange, Creative Expression Leaf stamps then stamped over mask in green and Aged Maghony DI, gold ep sprinkled on and melted. Paper leaves, Reindeer moss dried apple slices small cones and acrylic berries attached. Between layers of the above some pva glue coloured with Alcohol inks was also attached. Quick blast of golden Spray and sparkle bit more Ferro and a final blast of GM in Green. Von did want dried orange slices hanging from the ends as earrings, i think that gilds the lilly (or greenman) but as this is your mask Von if you still want them just say the word. LOL

  14. Morning Zoe

    Don't trust those little guys from Sky, they always seem to end up saying the box needs replacing and of course upgrading.

    A superb piece of work.
