Stampotique Backgrounds

Favourite Backgrounds

One of my favourite background effects is using modelling paste, Ink sprays and metallics
it create lots if lovely textures and its very forgiving

I started by sealing an 8" x 8" piece of chipboard with DecoArt Decopage Matt medium
Once dry I applied a layer of Modelling paste, this can be done quite randomly
The more texture the better really, some areas approx 1 mm and smoother to stamp into
 Dry with a heat tool until it form a skin
I stamped Daniels Hearts, honeycomb and France Papillon Design Cube into randomly
I also made an angled heart stencil from chipboard, and applied modelling paste thickly
 One dry I sprayed with a variety of Dylusions Spray, these are fantastic as the colours take really well and are so rich and vibrant
 I finished dry brushing DecoArt Rich Espresso metallic and Silver Media Metallic or you can you metallic pastes

Skiddy was coloured with Promarkers and set on her patchwork background
