Stamping into GP


I covered a couple of pieces of chipboard with a decent layer of grunge paste. I sprayed a couple of T!m's rubber stamps with water and stamped them into the tacky paste. I left them overnight to completely dry. As you can see, I got some great texture.


Coloured with lumiere paints in blue and purple.


And pewter and rust. I wanted the silver a bit brighter so added in some of the blue.


I went over it with black paint and added the word Soul, but you can't really see the effect in this photo.


Got great depth and texture from the GP though.


And this angle shows the black paint better.


I used lots of different colours of treasure gold over this one to bring out the texture.


From this angle you can see the shimmer the treasure gold gives.

You got some fab results on these two pieces Sam. Got to say the second one is my favourite ......... it's that dragonfly again, lol! Wonderful texture on both of them though and and love how the black on one and TG on the other brings that out.

Lovely texture... I've still not had much joy stamping into texture paste (Grunge or otherwise). I never seem to time it quite right...
