Super freak

Hello everyone,

Today it is my turn on the VivaLasVegaStamps! blog. For this post I have made a postcard using my new paints... I really enjoyed making this..

I started out with a piece of white card stock which I painted with white gesso. After it dried I used a palet knife to scrape Art Anthology Sorbet paint over it. I used yellow, orange and pink. I had to put on two layers to cover all the white gesso. Next I got the gesso out again and scraped some over here and there, using the same palet knife. I also put some around the edges. I then used a stencil and some modelling paste to make the background more interesting. I coloured the stencilled dots with similar coloured inks and my fingers after it dried to make it blend in with the background. You can still see it although it is very subtle. 
Next I randomly stamped the background. There is a list of all the stamps I used at the bottom of this post. Next I stamped the boy and the sentiment. The boy was coloured, cut out and clear embossed. The open letters of the sentiment were coloured in with a black marker and the edges of the strip of paper were inked with a black Archival ink pad. 
Both the boy and the sentiment were then adhered to the card. 

I used the following stamps:

Thank you so much for stopping by today !

  3. He is such a strong character, what a great stamp and you worked with him so creatively, especially the bold use of colour and I really like the repetition of numbers throughout.
    BTW Corrie, congratulations on your Top 5 over at Crafty Individuals with your fabulous bulldog artwork.

  4. Just fabulous - made me exclaim out loud - perfect combination of image and words, and that background is absolutely stunning.
