Affirmation Stones


Over on the FB Mini Marvels page Angie has started off a bit of a craze by creating some affirmation stones from a tutorial by Mark Montano of DecoArt which you can see here. So I got the bug and here is my take on them, the hardest part was finding some stones!!!


The background colour is quinacridone red, I used it because I wanted to use red, but this one is translucent so you can still see the oriental text underneath. I stamped the Chinese dragon in black stazon and outlined with a thin black out liner pen and centered it over the stone as best I could. I used translucent white and carbon black to decorate it.


Exactly the same process for this one, stamped the skull and positioned it over the stone. I watered down some paynes grey, again as I wanted the text to show through, translucent white on the skull and the dots. Outlined the skull and parts of it in black carbon.


And finally the last one I coloured with quinacridone violet. I free drew a heart in the white, only because I had some left from the above, added dots in black and white and then introduced the cerulean blue. Outlined the white heart in black.

All products are from the DecoArt media range.
