Sparkle in the rain

Hello everyone,

Today, for my DT post for Visible Image, I have decorated one of the brand new Free Standing Monoliths with one of the brand new stamp sets. Oh, and I have used a few stamps or an older set too. The monoliths are a super product and such fun to decorate.

This is the front ...

And here is the back. 

I started with painting the monolith with gesso. I applied two coats. Next I painted the front and back with Dina Wakley acrylic paints. I used my fingers for the front and for the little stand and a brush for the back. With a polka dot stencil I added some dots with the same colours on the front and with white paint on the front and the back. Next I used a script stamp and grey Archival ink to add some interest. I also stamped a swirl on the back using pink acrylic paint. This works really well, just make sure you wash your stamps straight away so the paint doesn't dry on it. I had already stamped the girl on some tissue paper and after I cut her out I adhered her to the front with gel medium. I went around the image with a white gel pen to make her stand out a little more. Next I stamped the sentiment with black Archival ink directly on the front and added some white dots to the word sparkle.
I also added the sentiment to the back but used VersaMark and white embossing powder. Lastly I drew a few lines around all the elements and coloured the edges with a black Big Brush Marker and that was that !

  1. Oh wat een supertof project !!!
    Heel leuk gedaan en zo'n leuke tekst !

  2. Wow - fabulous rainbow of colours and the silhouette really pops. I love the idea of the free-standing monolith too - what a great substrate to create on and then display your artwork.

  3. Wauw gave kleurtjes en design Corrie!

  4. Wow, those monolith things looks super and I totally adore what you did with them. Super colours and fantastic work with those stamps!

  5. Love that silhouette image, Corrie! And, of course, she is perfectly paired with the text stamp. I think the monolith provides a great substrate for smaller works and I love that it has its own stand!! Great DT piece, my friend!

  6. Zijn wel gave dingen...en je bent absoluut in een goede "vibe"...mooi ook deze weer! Groetjes, Gerrina
