Spirit in the Sky

As a visiting artist this month at Gingersnap Creations this is my contribution for inspiration for this weeks technique theme "Scene Stamping". This was a challenge for me as I am really not a "stamper", have never mastered the whole pressure and rocking and all that is involved in a nice crisp image, but hopefully you get the idea from my piece. My stamps were from Beeswax Stamps. The background was made using glassine paper and rubbing Walnut DI on the top lightly to give it that faux suede look. My image was stamped and then I used an assortment of Lindys Stamp Gang stains to color my picture. Added some fibers for texture in the sky; hence the title "Spirit in the Sky" and brushed a nice coat of beeswax over the top for a warm and aged effect.

On my right side bar I have most of the challenges I do participate in. I would encourage you to check some of these out. The talent of artist involved and the inspiration of themes suggested will open up a whole new world of art and creativity for you. Honestly don't think I would have ever tried the stamp scene technique, but really glad I did. Hope you enjoyed and thnx for stopping by. xoxo Toni
