The DT were given a fabulous choice of stamps this month from Creative Expressions to play with! Showcasing the new Single stamp range, so you can now buy single images rather than a whole plate! Some gorgeous stamps too, and this week I've chosen to use the Steampunk Dressform......
The base is a square of chipboard, painted white to give a blank base. I then used Eco Green paint in purple, pale blue and lime to colour....
Stamps to die for range. This one is called 'Blossoming Frame'. As the background is a little textured because of all the painty layers, I stamped the frame onto tissue and glued it down. Once dry, the tissue becomes transparent and it looks like you stamped directly onto the substrate! As it happened, this actually worked a little too well, the frame was very crisp and clear. I toned it down slightly with more paint on top. I wanted the frame to be a background, not a focal point!
Rock Candy Dry Glitter as you can see!
The sentiment is from the A5 Art Sayings plate by Sam Poole. Love that plate, so useful!
And there you have it...a steampunk dressform that really isn't steampunk!!
Please pop back next week as I'll have another piece showcasing the Single Stamps to share!
Love Trish xxx
