Curiosity



There is a new challenge blog called Stamps and Stencils that has just gone live and their first months theme is anything goes as long as you include a stamp and or a stencil. So I stenciled onto this tag using a range of DecoArt products. I sanded it back and gave it a couple of coats of media ultra matte varnish. 


I added some stamping in timber brown, saddle brown and rusty brown stazon, heat dried it and then gave the tag another couple of coats of media ultra matte varnish. 


Stamped the 3 men from the TH stamp set onto a piece of deli paper in timber brown stazon, cut them out and stuck them on. I coloured the piece of wood with DecoArt vintage chalky paint, followed by a coat of the Andy Skinner dirty wash and a piece of lace. I added a brad and a couple of spinners to the Finn stamped cog image.

Artful Times have a theme this time around called In the style of T!m Holtz, so I'm entering my tag over there too.
