Hi everyone, and welcome to my second GDT piece. My offering this time produced fingers which needed some serious scrubbing but the end results were definitely worth it.
small but beautiful Gibson Girls set available from The Artistic Stamper. These elegant ladies were perfect for adding some well needed refinement to my texture-filled boxes as you will see from the following images.
Distress Paints - red, yellow and orange all mixed together over the top of the inks (with fingers!!) with particular attention paid to the embossed areas. By then attacking it all with wire wool I finally had a real rusted/verdigris look.
Coffee Archival Ink onto tissue paper. They were torn apart carefully and applied to the box with Glue n Seal. It was important to ensure that the more delicate features (in particular the eyes) were placed in areas where the embossing would not distort them. Using these smaller images meant this was far easier to achieve.
