SASPC Aprils challenge

Hi everyone I have for you today a piece of steampunk
art that I did for a retreat weekend at (MOM)
Ministry Of Mixology
As you all know I love my Steampunk and I love 
Deco Art products. 
So I used my Steampumpkin stamp from Stampendous
to stamp into my gold embossing powder.
 The tag was gessoed with black gesso followed by
crackle paint.
 The edges of the Tando tag were scraped with texture
Sand paste.
 Distressed harlequin stencil and modelling paste were 
used along the left hand side of the tag.
 Washes were used to age it all with burnt umber and 
Quinacridone gold really watery
The wings were made from paper clay and a mould
then painted gold and patina antiquing cream
applied and knocked back.
 Various embellishments from my stash were used to
finish off the piece.
Same stamp and technique different shaped 
I really hope you all enjoyed my tag for you today
and hope that you all have a great Easter.
Please feel free to ask any questions and
let me know what you think.
Kind regards Dee X

SanDee&amelie's Steampunk Challenges New/forgotten stash.

Hi Folks its that time again! Team B are showing their 
pieces for this month challenge.
New/forgotten stash.
I started go with my media board and applied silver embossed
card to the base of the board. 
I then applied a graphite paste to the top of the board
to which I applied my new stash of mica powders.
For the heart I used foam board which i painted with
Deco art titan buff and stamped using Andy skinners 
i distressed the edges with raw umber and archival ink
finishing off with wire and die cut cogs.
Finally I added my forgotten stash the wings and crown.
Thank you everyone for popping by and I 
hope to see you all join in with us.
Cheers Dee x

I am proud to be a member of Sandee & amelie's design team.

Laurel Burch From #Stampendous

Hi everyone I have for you today a post card showing what 
you can do with the new collection of Laurel Burch 
stamps from #Stampendous.
Okay a slightly different style from me but a very vibrant 
I started by stamping the image from the New Laurel Burch wild 
horses stamp with momento ink on a watercolour post card.
I coloured the horses in using Zig clean colour brushes and 
lots of water.
Those of you who are familiar with my work will know that this 
is right out of my comfort zone!
I followed the colours and then just drenched the card in water
so it all flowed and the colours blended would you believe
that one of the horses was green!
Once i was happy a little touch of gold to finish the fantasy
Yeah loved it!!!! Think I might just get into this.
Thanks for popping by I hope you have 
enjoyed it as much as i did creating it. 

Cheers Dee x
