Mystical Worlds

Good Evening one and all

I have made this piece for Jacque at Scroll's Work Stamps as so sadly she is having to close the store. If you click the link and go over you will see that she currently has 40% off the whole range and more reductions through June and July. She had arranged for me to be a GD for June, so I am just squeezing this in.

I have used the SW Pegasus stamp and created a magical and mystical world as a background for it using a free digital download from Gaby Cajubrasil and a castle from The Graphic Fairy. I used the challenge at Sir Stampalot as inspiration, which runs for the whole of May.

White acrylic paint
DIs - aged mahogany, walnut stain, pumice stone, scattered straw
Stickles - star dust
Glamour dust
Hessian and lint
Stamps - Scrolls Work, Le Blanche

The background edges were inked with walnut stain lightly and then stamped over with a flourish stamp using white acrylic paint and DI mixed together, then edged again with pumice stone.

Hessian and lint with edged torn music sheet added next, and then the castle picture, edged with aged mahogany and stickles, mounted and stuck to the top.

Pegasus was stamped with DI watercoloured with DIs and then went over with promarkers in places to give more depth. Glamour dust was added to the wings.

I finished off by adding some little strips of vellum, lace and distressed paper with a pearl.

Thanks for taking a look and I hope to see you again soon.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
