away from every thing. 

So with that in mind 
 here's a sneaky peek at my next post for The Artistic Stamper

Why not pop over to see how I created this picture

A Beer Matt Called Compass

Hi everyone I have for you today a beer mat from my local 
micro pub which is called the compass and as I 
LOVE compasses and clocks
I offered to alter their 
beer mat.

OK for this I used Stone Fresco Finish paint mixed with white acrylic.

Next I sprayed it with Distress Stains spray in Iced Spruce, Faded Jeans
 & Gathered Twigs.

Next I brushed on matt multi medium and dried 
with my heat gun.

I had some scrap triple embossed card so I used the New flourish stamp from
The Artistic Stamper and pressed it into the hot embossing powder.

Next I  coloured the embossed card and the die cut cogs with 
Deco Art antiquing cream.

The compass stamp is from Indigo Blue I think the other 
one is a small Tim Holtz clock stamp.

Stencils and lots of Ferro graphite was used. Tommorow
I will be returning their beer mat to them I
hope they like it! let me know 
what you think?
Cheers Dee

The Artistic Stamper Challenge for this month is LOVE
and as its Valentines I have done a heart using 
Deco art media range and the fabulous 
Artistic Stamper Swirls stamp.

1. Papier-Mache heart
2. Deco Art Media line Gesso & Crackle paste.
3 Deco art Americano Jack O Lantern Orange, Burnt Orange & Deep Burgandy
4. Media fluid acrylics Quinacridone Gold, Carbon Black Antquing cream.
5. Treasure Gold Spanish Topaz and White Fire.
6. Fimo black clay.
7. Glass Micro beads. 

First I covered the heart with Gesso and put on the crackle paste
 with a pallet knife.

I pushed the micro beads into the wet crackle paste, I allowed it to dry 

I painted the heart with Jack O lantern Orange, then Burnt Orange, next 
I painted the entire heart with Deep Burgandy.

Once the paint had dried I then used the Quinacridone Gold.

I rolled out the Black Fimo clay and wet the swirl stamp and stamped 
it into the clay three times and cut out. I baked
 it in the oven once I took it out I bent it 
round the heart.

Once cooled I attached it with a hot glue gun and gilded
 it with treasure gold. 

When I had completed the heart it reminded me of the apple in
 Snow White as it has a beautiful sheen to it.
What do you think?
