Jewel in the Crown


I took a size #10 tag, randomly brayered gesso over it, once dry brayered watered down gold green, cerulean blue and finally viridian, which is a gorgeous dark green.


I added black modelling paste through a stencil, love this stuff and it's so flexible when it dries.


Stamped a TH face onto a piece of thickish tissue paper and coloured with very, very watered down quinacridone violet.


Glued the face to the tag and using a lid I stamped black and white circles randomly and added a bit of script in black versa fine ink to bring it all together.


And finally gave her a crown using a chipboard die cut, which I'd used English red oxide and carbon black antiquing cream on with a few layers of ultra matte medium to seal each layer of the cream. And lastly added the gem.

All media products are by DecoArt.

Our Creative Corner have a tic tac toe challenge and I've gone with the middle horizontal line - paint - stamps - stencil.
