Toadstool Plaque

I created this piece during one of my One Day Special shows. I love adding book pages and lots of layers to my designs and this piece showcases that perfectly. I have used my newly released Border Stamp "fungus" #275 from AALLandCreate. Our stockists can be found HERE.
The addition of the book pages to this piece really lift the design and add a different element along with further layers.
I began by layering Lime and Elephant Acrylic Paints from Dina Wakley, brayering the paints on in layers and I then placed circular apertures onto my card and then wiped over to remove some of the paint with a babywipe. This gives me circular spotlights in the background. I also added a touch of shading to each of the spotlights using a grey Inktense Pencil.
I also added a touch of background stamping using my A4 Stamp "Nature Elements" #267, I adore the background details on this stamp and it is so versatile. You can use the whole stamp or parts of the background as I have done here.
I added a strip of card across my plaque and stamped the Toadstool sentiment, adding a mini paperclip for added interest.
I also added a mini bulldog clip for added interest and added a pen nib, wrapped in wire. I love these little touches they add so much to a piece.
Thanks so much for stopping by, Tracy x x
