Torso is made from a Formica chip, alcohol inked, stamped and some bellies added. Something odd happened with the black Memories ink and the alcohol ink: as I didn't like the effect,I rubbed the black ink off . Lo and behold it had a resist effect, the black ink came off and left the outline of the stamp white. I liked it so left it like that.
The face is am image from my collection, slightly coloured with chalks, and the headband is a bit of fringing. The neck is a bead (Thanks to Linda Strawn) wired to head and torso. The arms and legs are stamped with various 'doodle' type images.
Background is from my stash and I can't remember how I did it. Used some metallic acrylics ans some sprays I think. I triple embossed a piece of card using a mixture of colours for the top layer and then impressed the stamp. Dictionary definition was copied and the word pear written in ink.
The 'liquefied ' pear image is one that I altered from a photograph of pears taken for the food element of a photography course I did a couple of years back. I cropped it slightly and printed it on water colour paper. Background is again acrylic metallics, stamped with versafine sepia and a scribble stamp by Magenta.
Image transferred onto fabric, shining stone background with some lustre gold embossing. I have had this image for some time and thought this an ideal opportunity to use it.
Scraped background stamped with images. Left side has some silver lustre embossing and the words are written on kitchen roll used to catch the over sprays.
Leaves are from one of my own photographs altered in Elements and printed on watercolour paper, mounted onto black card. I doodled around the edges and added the doodled leaves.
Shell beads with pendant and earrings.
Earrings from Karen, I love them.
Karen made this delightful 'ribbon embroidery' picture.
Wasn't I the lucky one :)
