I started with a piece of mount board and stuck some left over stamped tissue paper that I made for this project. I then gave it a coat of Glue 'n' Seal so that it would protect the paper from the moisture in the paint I was going to apply. I then applied several layers of Fresco Finish paint using a baby wipe, making sure to dry in between colours so that it didn't turn to mud !
Then I stencilled over the whole piece using the Mini Numbers stencil and also the Mini Ledger stencil, again using Fresco Finish paints. I also used the Mini Art Is stencil with Wendy Vecchi's black embossing paste, but I forgot to photograph that stage !
I've had my Tim Holtz Pediments die for some time now and not used it so I thought it would work well on this piece. I first of all stuck some metal to black card and then die cut three shapes. I used the nylon tip, metal working tool and added some detail. Then I painted them all black with Fresco Finish Little Black Dress.
Once the paint was dry I then brushed Treasure Gold over the pieces.
For the three separate panels I've used a piece of carboard that I've torn pieces of the top layer off and then painted with Fresco Finish paint.
This image is from the Artistic Outpost Generation Redux set and I've stamped the separate coffee stamp with Coffee Archival ink, mounted it onto some brown card and stuck it over the same smaller image on the main stamp. The text is from the Artistic Outpost Think and Wonder set.
For the centre panel I've used another image from the Artistic Outpost Think and Wonder set. The text is also from this set and I've stamped it with Coffee Archival ink. The number plaque has had some Fresco Finish dabbed on to it to knock back the white.
For this panel I stamped the boy image from the Artistic Oupost Paper Boy set then masked him off and stamped the text from the same set over the top. I've used another text stamp from the Think and Wonder set and stamped it on the edge using Coffee Archival ink. I used a stamp from the Tim Holtz French Marketplace set and used a circle punch for the area of the image I wanted and stuck it onto a bottle cap die cut. The metal number has been painted with Fresco Finish Little Black Dress and when it was dry I brushed it with some Treasure Gold.
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge and do make sure you hop over to the main blog to check out the rest of the DT's fabulous projects.
I'm also entering this project into the Artistic Outpost Referral programme of Anything Goes.
