A Stripey Little Number

This little square hanging plate started with a piece of 6x6 7Gypsies printed striped paper which I then treated with acrylic paints applied with a make-up sponge in maroon, toffee & mushroom applied through a square mesh and then a numbers stencil to build up colour layers around the edges.  Once happy with the effect I stamped a shell stamp from one of the Lynne Perrella plates from PaperArtsy in Archival black ink, randomly over the painted areas.

I think this one fits the bill for the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge which this week is 'Stripes'.

Base complete, I then coloured some Grungeboard numbers with more of the maroon paint and when dry applied in relief as shown with Glossy Accents.

The main image is another Lynne Perrella collage stamp from the same plate, stamped in Archival Ink and coloured in toning colours with Marvey Alcohol brush markers. This was trimmed out and applied on foam pads. The top rosette has been stamped again, coloured and applied on a foam pad.

The larger rosette, again from the plate treated in the same way and applied on foam pads at the side.

Final touches were to matt onto tan textured card and apply a piece of metal chain with two gold brads and edge the matt with maroon chalk ink.
