Sunday Stamper : Brown



The Sunday Stamper ,over on Hels' blog, this weeks challenge is based on the song Brown Eyed Girl, hence the colour brown. I decided to go through my stamps which I had not used for a while and came up with this teasel head. I enjoy seed heads such as these. I think it is their structure and distressed quality I am drawn to especially when they are quite dry.

I coloured a stamboard with Old Paper ink and the edges with Brushed Corduroy. The stamp itself is quite a lot longer so I selected the area I wanted and laid a piece of Stampboard over the section of the stamp I wanted once it had been inked up with Sepia ink. I further scratched into it with a scratchy tool, to give further definition. Then it had its edges sanded so it looked more like a tile. Out came the TH papers and the piece was layered up and edges distressed and inked. The frame was sanded back and a very light application of Bronze paint was added.
