E is for Eclectic

The current letter for The Craft Barn dictionary challenge is E. I toyed for a long time with elephant but in the end went with eclectic as I love the PaperArtsy Eclectica range of stamps and am always looking for an opportunity to use them.

The background was created by sponging and stamping in paint. The foreground elements were stamped on tissue paper, painted on the reverse and glued in place. The hanging leaves, birds and flowers were stamped directly onto the background and coloured with paint pen and ProMarkers.

 Materials used:
PaperArtsy Eclectica stamps: EDY 05, 09, 10, 11
 PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Paint
Archival Ink
tissue paper
Matte Medium
Sharpie paint pen

  4. I like everything about this. It is both colorful and humorous. It is quirky and fun. I'm a big fan of Darcy, although I don't own any of her stamps. You did them justice.
