2015 Theme 6: Grunge Paste
Hi, it's Liesbeth here again, today I'm showing you my altered Grunge Paste ! I made some mosaic tiles out of it. I think the mosaic and leaded glass of the stamp go very well together !
I smeared a thin layer (1 mm) of Grunge Paste onto a craft sheet and let it dry for at least 12 hours.
I peeled the big piece of dried Grunge paste off of the craft sheet and broke off lots of small irregular ,tiles'.
I painted most of the tiles with the beautiful, translucent Fresco Finish paint Glass Blue...
Onto a piece of Smoothy-white stamping card, I stamped the leaded glass woman (LPC032) using StazOn ink Jet Black , and cut out the image with a 3 cm wide border.
I watercoloured the stamped image with the Glass Blue paint and less or more water to create light and dark. I coloured the face and hand with some pink ink
I glued on the Grunge Paste tiles one by one like a mosaic..it took lots of time but it was fun ! Here and there I added an Inky Pool or Smurf tile..
I glued and glued (and glued...) till all the white disappeared.
I cut off the excess of the tiles at the edges of the card.
To create a shiny accent I added a very little bit of Treasure Gold - Spanish Topaz, very lightly using my finger. I finished the piece by sticking it onto black cardstock and with some metal embellishments.
I hope you like this Grunge Paste altering-mosaic ! Have fun with this technique !
Hope to see you next time :-)
Liesbeth this is such a really, really cool idea! I can't believe that we haven't seen this done before. The shape of the card and the colours are just perfect, and really add to the stained glass effect of the stamped image.
