Layers and Layers


Over at Simon Says Stamp and Show this week their challenge is 'layered'.  You are asked to take this how you like, so I'm going with 4 layers of acrylic and a couple of layers of stamping!!!  The first acrylic dabber colour I used was mushroom, the second hazelnut and the third espresso.  I stamped the flowers from the tattered floral die in Eco-friendly white acrylic.  Once dry, I stamped in black stazon, a variety of Dina Wakley stamps and TH background stamps from the mixed media plate.  I over stamped the boys star (middle left) with white acrylic.  Finally I stamped the main image, silhouette script by Dina Wakley again in black stazon.  So as you can see, lots of layers.

Love the layers of medium. You just couldn't get the same effect with a splodge or two of ink. So creative Sam. Hugs, Buttons x
