Stampotique Challenge

Shimmer & Shine

I have recently been using a lot of metal sheets for embossing nice and shiny and I was keen to use my new stamp Arwen McCullen's beautiful Angel Wings

I coloured a Sandra Everston Prima - Relics and Artifacts Flaming Hearts Ex Votos II with 
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Metallic Silver and shaded with Cadmium Orange, Dioxadine Purple and Carbon Black softened by wiping back

I stamped the wings onto embossing metal and embossed using a fine ball tool and shaped with a larger ball tool to accentuate the curve of the wing

 Coloured lightly with Cadmium Orange and Dioxadine Purple

Stamped the 'Life' from Stampotique  'A Quite Place' and created a little scroll embellishment by rolling the ends around a pin
Then coloured using the same colours as above, wiping back to expose the silver and adhered with Glossy Accents

Embellished with Finnabair Licorice Glass Beads and a clay butterfly coloured as above and some sparkly rhinestones

The ribbon was coloured using DecoArt So Soft Fabric Paints Wisteria, Dioxadine Purple and Tangerine by adding small amounts and spritzing with water

 Finished with DecoArt So Soft Fabric Paints Silver Platimum, Glorious Gold and Tim Holtz Distress Inks Chipped Saphire, Seedless Preserve and Black Soot
