Sunday Stampers - 86 + 85


The theme for the Sunday Stampers challenge over at Hel's place is 'Feet'. I've made a card for this. I was a little late with last weeks so am posting it also. The theme was 'Faces' and I decided to use a Plaster of Paris mask I made years ago, but which lay half-forgotten in a box. It had been painted but i didn't like what I'd done so painted over it. It was very difficult to stamp on but I did manage a bit of stamping which turned out ok, and put a mask on but I wasn't happy with it overall. After giving it a couple of coats of gesso and a few coats of paint I decided it may be better to use the napkin decoupage technique. I coloured a paper napkin with Ecoline inks and then stamped and embossed some images. I used Mod Podge gloss to adhere the napkin and also to seal it.
Thanks for looking ;)
