A Shrine Example!








This lovely shrine image is a new one, CI264, from Crafty Individuals. It was love at first sight! I stamped her on glossy paper and sponged inks over her, added some white opaque pen highlights, and separated the roof from the body of the stamp, adding some chandelier ribbon. The basis is an empty wooden container which had housed embellishments. I copied Jean Hardy's paint technique from her Chinese Box in Craft Stamper a couple of issues back, by using Gold Croco paint, then a little Pink Precious Metal paint, then softening the colour with a black ink pad. I finished it off with wooden cotton reel legs, painted with the Precious Metal again.
