I decided to make my own mask of the tree and the bird house
(picture of masks below), I stamped on acetate, then cut out with a knife.
I mixed grunge paste and fresco mud splat and layered it over the mask on craft mat.
After it was dry I restamped the tree over the grunge paste, I was so impressed
by my embellishment I had another go with the bird house. Now this
time I decided to do a thicker layer (grunge paste mixed with fresco squid)
which took overnight to dry, then I added crackle paint over the top
and when dry added fresco stone. Now I meant to sand back before
over stamping but I got too eager lol and ended up forgetting.
On the right I used the mask on the page with just mud splat and overstamped,
it's not perfect but I love the effect.
For the sun I wanted texture so I pounced my brush
with haystack, then pumpkin soup and smoked paprika.
I also wanted to see if my polychromos would colour over
the top and they did perfectly.
My birds were stamped on Paperartsy stamping paper and coloured
with my polychromos pencils, the stamping paper was great
for blending the pencils. This is the first time I have used
them in my stamping. I initially bought them for parchment craft
years ago and never used them as I found stamping lol.
Closer look at the grunge paste tree embellishment.
Also a close up of the bird house with (me!!) so needing
to sort out the house and sort out the art lol
