This time at Stampotique designer’s challenge my dear talented friend Samantha gave us the challenge to use only one stamp. For me, who is a texture freak, it’s a very difficult job. So I tried to create all my textures without using any stamp and I added an image as the one and only from Stampotique. So let’s dance:
Say hello to Twinkie from Daniel Torrente. Isn’t he a cute, is he? Yeap, a bit of a background story. So it was all beginning with a wooden heart, ba bum, ba bum… I applied on it some black sand texture paste. Then came the worst part:
Me, had to wait till it dries, out in the air, more than a night, because after the night in the middle it was still a bit wet. But waited, and waited, then I decided that’s it, that heart needs to get red. So I used some beeswax and pigment and I made it red!
I loved the black sand coming through the red wax. Discovered something new, thanks Samantha! Then I wanted some background, so I mixed some more wax with another pigment and used a simple non-absorbent paper to create a an abstract background with some metal tools that I heated up to run through the wax.
I had that shadow box sort of a thing, so I altered the sides, I applied my background and added my heart.
Oh yeah, the bottom where Twinkie stands is covered with graphite texture paste, actually Twinkie is held by that texture paste. As you can see my rusty side asked for some more altered found objects on that grunge heart.
The lettering is simple scrap, I have no idea which company, has it for years, sorry.
Hope you liked Twinkie dancing out of his heart for you. So that was my one stamp story for today!
