Klimt Take On Salome By Dee

Hi everyone I hope you are all well, this piece is inspired by the artist
Gustav Klimt if any of you know about him
he was a symbolist painter. 

The moment I spotted this stamp I thought of his work
So with that in mind it would be rude
not to use gold.

Firstly I painted my board with Fresco  Finish paints in the
following colours Tikka, Seaweed, Brownshed, 
claret and Baltic Blue.

I stamped the Salome stamp to the centre in versa fine onyx black
and then clear embossed it. Then around the edges I stamped

I then added some hessian ribbon down the left hand side and
attached this with five brads. 

Next I picked out areas to highlight with old gold 

I also used the Claret and brown shed to highlight 
other area's.

Next I used a small paint brush and applied glossy accents to 
highlight certain area's.

I poped this on to a vibrant red covered foam board.

I then placed this on to a black piece of card that I had randomly
stamped with the swirl pattern of the tick tock plate that had
 been inked with gold brilliance and heat set.

That's it from me today thank you for taking the time to pop by
please feel free to leave your comments 
happy stamping!
