I am my own unique self ....

Hello there, just popping in with a quick project made using the fabulous new Babushka stamps from Chocolate Baroque. I've made a canvas using various sizes of these lovely new stamps and one of the sentiments from an old favourite stamp sheet Artistic Affirmations.

I began by adding a little texture to the canvas using some texture paste and a stencil although you can't see it very well in the photos. Next I stamps the various Babushka stamps on tissue paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I left it to dry and then coloured one of the larger images carefully using Graph'It Markers. To decide which image to colour lay the tissue paper over the canvas so you can see where the edges are and decide which image to colour. I lightly marked the position of the canvas with a pencil and stamped the sentiment with Versamark before embossing with Gold Embossing powder.

I applied a layer of matte gel medium to the canvas and used this to adhere the stamped tissue paper to the canvas. Remember to separate the layers of the tissue and only apply one to the canvas. Once that was dry I used a dark grey pencil to create some shadows. I used a versamark pen to cover the coloured image with ink and applied a layer of clear embossing powder and repeated this several times to create a thick glossy layer .To finish off I added some gilding wax to the edges of the little canvas.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
