Eileen Hull Collaborates with Stampotique

The Eileen Hull Design Team are continuing with the month long collaboration with Stampotique and this week I have a little basket for you using Eileen's Sizzix Scoreboards Die Basket.
I covered mountboard with pieces of book pages from an old Alice in Wonderland book and then die cut the basket from the mountboard.
I coloured the background with Lemon Peel Impasto Paint, applying the paint with a palette knife and I then added random areas of Gesso, again applying with a palette knife to give me added texture.
I stamped Kassa's Bloom from Stampotiqe Originals onto the basket using Black Archival Ink and then painted with Raspberry Pink and Crimson Impasto Paints along with touches of Lemon Peel to add highlights. I then stamped back over the image to add the black detailed lines back into the design.
I also stamped part of the imagery inside the basket for added detail and added some dots of white using a paint pen.
To complete I added a Tim Holtz Sticker and added some delicate splatters of white paint.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
