Green Eyed Monster


Over at Stampotique this week, Sue has chosen a theme of oranges and lemons - citrus colours. I coloured the tag with heritage chalky finish DecoArt paint. I randomly applied hair wax to the tag and painted over all of it with new life chalky paint. Once completely dry, I wiped back to reveal the orange underneath, a bit like a peeled paint technique. I stamped the background with 3 Stampotique stamps. Stamped the monster onto a separate piece of paper, coloured it with hansa yellow media paint, cut it out and glued it on. Coloured the eyes green and the horn things orange. The quote is also Stampotique and was coloured with yellow gelato, cut up and outlined in black posca pen. Fibres added to finish.

All the paints are from the DecoArt range.
