It's not a trick - It's a canvas

Boo - lishes greets my friends. I hope you have a great Halloween night. It's my fathers 75th birthday today and before i'm leaving to his party i want to show you a mixed media canvas, i've created in june already.
It fits the actuell CraftStamper Challenge, so it's a great reminder for you too, because there is still enough time to paticipate. Read all about the Challenge here.

I started with a dripping - running  and splattered paint background

These are the colours i've used from DecoArt, besides acrylic paint black, Metallic Lustre and Duraclear matt varnish

I've also used some paperclay

I stamped into the clay with a script stamp

Wrote the saying by hand and traced the people with a pencil

Painted the people and used a matt varnish on top

Painted the paperclay with black paint

Drybrushing with Metallic Lustre and paint


Have a nice weekend
Thanks for reading and your appreciated comments

Dieses Bild gefällt mir sehr, ist gekonnt gestaltet, die plastischen Elemente geben dem Ganzen den besonderen Touch. Aber auch deine Halloween-Köstümierung finde ich klasse,warst du auf einer Fete´?
Liebe Grüße, have a nice weekend.

Wow - I love how you used the clay - reminds me of Runic stones (the Jelling stone in Denmark for instance, or the Rosetta stone) and the colours are glorious in the background!
