Stand Boldly...

It's time for another challenge over at A Mixed Media Colour Challenge, and I have time this week to join in! yay!
I made this panel...
Not too much background stamping/printing on this, its alllllll about the texture!!
I crumpled up some text tissue, and stuck it to my chipboard sheet with multi medium, making sure all the wrinkles and crinkles were not smoothed out. Then I added the paint. The three colours this time are light blue, turquoise and a I started with the neutral, then added a little blue, then turquoise on the top..
I also added some of the cream paint to some grunge paste and scraped it through a harlequin stencil. With  hindsight i should have made the grunge paste blue..the cream is almost invisible in the pictures!
As you can see, my Stampotique figure is coloured appropriately too... light blue and turquoise for her hair and clothes, then neutral for her face!!!
I placed her on a stamped strip, then added the remnant rub ons to finish..
Nice and simple, but lots of texture in the details!
Why not join in and play too?
