I've been playing
with acrylic paints to make another card for LIM I've been wanting to use this lovely stamp from Paperbag studios for some time and the LIM challenge this week shouted out for it.
here it is
using this colour palette challenge
I used Yellow Ochre and Lemon Yellow acrylic paints lightly brushed onto the stamped image with a fine paint brush. I used them watered down and neat .
I also added some metallic guilding wax to give some shimmer. never used
this before and I really don't know how to use it but I like the effect
achieved here. It doesn't show up very well on the photographs. You can see it better on the photo below... I hope :)
I've been unwell for the last couple of days with a reoccurring problem, side effects of cancer treatment from 20yrs ago... so as far as I'm concerned, worth it... at least I'm here to tell the tale, if only boring all of you :) Playing with this stamp and "painting" was very relaxing and helped me through the day.
Thank you for looking, see you again soon.
