Illusionary Artists Stamp LAUNCH

Last week saw the launch of a brand new stamp company by mixed media artists Andy Skinner and France Papillon - Illusionary Artists.

As part of Andy's Creative Team, we were incredibly lucky to be able to use the stamps before launch. I have created a few pieces but wanted to share this tag initially;

Covered in texture created using DecoArt Media crackle paste and modelling paste and Decoupage papers, I wanted to create an aged look to the background of the tag.

I used a variety of washes to achieve this deep colour including; Paynes Grey, Raw Sienna, Burnt Umber and Titan Buff.

To highlight the texture of the background; I dry brushed the piece in a mixture of Titanium White and Titan Buff.

Using the Word Up & Numbers stamp, I covered the background in numbers using Staz-On Jet Black and Versafine Sepia inks. They give the impression of co-ordinates while forming a pattern.

For the feature I used a greyboard heart, covered in dimensional paste and painted in tonal reds, edged and highlighted in gold. The heart itself I mounted on burlap, and used the word "secret" from the Word Up stamp to finish.
