Welcome to my weekly post for Artistic Outpost. I have been working with the fabulous Go Team stamp set once again.
I used Wendy Vecchi's Frames and Masks to mask off the central circular area on my card which I then coloured with Vintage Photo Distress Ink; applying Ground Espresso to the edges and I then flicked the ink with water, allowed the ink to sit for a few seconds and then dabbed dry with a piece of kitchen towel and dried completely with a heat tool. With the aperture/mask still in place I then stamped the focal imagery with Black Archival Ink and dried with a heat tool.
I stamped the young boy onto a piece of scrap paper, cut it out to create a mask, placed the mask onto the stamped boy and then stamped the background imagery.
To add further interest and texture I painted the circular area with DecoArt Crackle Glaze and once completely dry I rubbed over the cracks with DecoArt Raw Umber Antiquing Cream, wiping away any excess with a baby wipe.
I scribbled Black Gelato around the circle and then blended with my finger to add a shadow. I also lightly coloured around the circular area with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, applying only light pressure so that the colour did not appear to dark and once again flicked water onto the background. I also added "TOUCHDOWN" to the bottom of the card and also included some painted scratchy lines.
To complete my piece I added a few delicate splatters of Carbon Black Fluid Acrylic to the background and dried with my heat tool.
