Triptych {with Lynne Perrella Stamps by Linda Cain}

Hi Everyone!!! Linda Cain here, and I'm back with some of the most GORGEOUS stamps I've ever had the pleasure of working with. I am a giddy fan of Lynne Perrella and just love how they stamp up on Fresco Paints.

So let's get started!!!

I rummaged around in my stash and found a 10" tall, white, paper mache Triptych from ages ago. It has 3 inserts that looked perfect for adding the Ladies from the new Lynne Perrella Collection. I LOVE them all, and they go so well together with the Pens and Inks!

*You could make your own triptych by cutting 3 large pieces of chipboard and linking them together with any Tissue Tape. They don't have to have frame sections. * 

I started by painting the Triptych with Little Black Dress. You only need to paint the frame section as we're going to add pictures in the centers.Then I added some Irish Cream to my Grunge Paste and recklessly applied it over a stencil. I wanted it to look distressed and old, so don't worry about having it in perfect sections.

Then I added some Crackle Glaze over the Black painted areas. When dry, add Tikka and watch the magic! It also is roughly added in as another layer will cover some of this part.

Then I used the same stencil to add some Irish Cream in areas that needed a bit more contrast. This is all very rough to make it look vintage.

The next step is with white Smoothy White Stamping Card. I cut 6 pieces all 1/4 inch smaller than the opening of the Triptych...3 for the front and 3 to decorate the back as well.
Using Cut-N-Dry foam squares, I added my Fresco Paints. I used Pumpkin SoupCaramel, Irish CreamBrown ShedBlood OrangeClaretTinned PeasHyde ParkBora Bora, and Inky Pool. Lots and lots of dabs on the white paper makes for brilliantly colourful background!

Try to imagine where the image of the ladies face will be and use Irish Cream and Caramel in those spots.

The next part is what I LOVE to do most of all....stamping with Jet Black Archival Ink onto colour!
Are these gorgeous together or what??? The detail on the Fresco Paint is just incredible.

Using the other 3 pieces of cut paper, I added Blood Orange and Claret to them. When dry, I stamped the large background stamp from LPC030 and filled in the other areas with smaller stamps.

The back has no insert areas, so I used Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells paper that has the same 2 blue shades in it to create a frame for the 3 sections. It was meant to be!

 All that remains is to glue your pieces onto the front and back of the Triptych and add a couple of vintage pen nibs for fun. I also stamped the word Indian Ink from LPC029 and cut it out to put underneath the pen nibs.


That's it for me. I love coming over here and sharing with all the wonderful Patwits. Such a fun group of talented people. So get out your stash and just have a go of it with lots of colour!
I'll be back again next month to share another project with you. Watch this space!
