Go Team Accordion

Welcome to my weekly post for Artistic Outpost.
Today I am showcasing the Go Team stamp set. I opted for cool greys this week, painting the background with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Medium Grey Value 6 and Dark Grey Value 3, blending the colours with a baby wipe and then drying with a heat tool. I added a touch of shading to the edges of the card with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink.
This is the reverse of the accordion, once again painted with the DecoArt Fluid Arylics.
I love the Black stamping against the grey backdrop with the touches of white.
With this panel I masked of the image and stamped three times, adding a painty circle around the imagery adding a touch of white Gelato to the circle for added shading and highlights. I also added a few delicate splatters of DecoArt Titanium White Fluid Acrylic.
Touches of paint have been added to incorporate scratchy lines in Titanium White and Carbon Black Fluid Acrylics.
Once again I have spotlighted the focal imagery using a painted circle using the lid from one of my products and Titanium White Fluid Acrylic; adding shading with a white Gelato.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

The grey background looks amazing with your crisp stamping Tracy, it gives a lovely vintage feel to the accordion and I really like the white circles to highlight the focal points too. Hugs, Anne xx
