Paperbabe Stamps ~ MDF Men's Mixed Media Portrait Kits...

Thank you for all you wonderful comments and delight at the new release, you'll be pleased to know they are now listed for you to enjoy...

So here they are...
click the pictures to take you to their individual listing..

I had lots of fun making samples with these... so, let me show you

These three don't necessarily work together, I used different techniques on each of them...

I used acrylic paints on this guy, and stamped most of the facial images in black ink. His shirt I was very pleased with, I used the DesignA Tweed set and heat embossed the check design, the tie has a houndstooth on it although hard to see in these pictures.
I then decided to place him on an ornate frame to match my female day of the dead mixed media art piece.

I wanted to try watercolours on mdf so for this one I prepared the surface with with gesso so that the colours would show when I painted the features, his jumper has been stamped on using the designA tweed stamp set to give a great texture.

This is using matte finish acrylic paints, I used a more painterly style and inked the edges of his top to give a soft fabric texture.

I think this is one of my favourites, I've been using the gelli plate to colour the pieces, it takes next to no time and the textures and results are stunning. Look at his beard, love that finish. I've paired him with this pretty girly, so you can see them together would be great for couple projects.

I'll pop back tomorrow with more samples, there's just too many to show today but do visit the lovely talented team and say hi...

Thank you very much for stopping by,
There's still time to enter our current challenge!

Enjoy a wonderfully creative day!
