Today I am showcasing the Paperboy stamp set once again from Artistic Outpost.
I have added the Paperboy focal image to a mixed media background.
I added a touch of background stamping using the Ephemera Background stamp and Distress Ink to add a tone on tone effect.
I stamped the Paperboy and then cut out the image and added shading using a grey pencil. This picture shows all the layers added to the background from Gesso resist to inking and stencilling.
Splatters of paint have been included along with Tissue Tape to ground the focal image
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Fabulous quote! Love the image of the little boy with the newspapers - he looks great against that super background and I just love tone on tone.
Thanks for your kind works on my blog - I really was not comfortable with that page, not well at the moment so it was a real struggle so big big thanks.
Hugs, Neet xx
