Stampman DT Piece - Monochrome +1 "Lost in Time"

Wanted to do something different this time... you know how you sometimes get stuck in the mud, and always seem to make the same sort of thing?? Ok, maybe YOU don't but I do... so I went for my melting pot - inspired by Jennie at The Artistic Stamper, who has made a fabulous melty tag+butterfly, and entered in to TIO... well it IS very RED!!! I used some black UTEE and my faces mould, and poured into these three faces - they are a bit odd looking eh??

 I smooched them with purple Viva Gold paste, to show their features and wrinkles... The background is a mixture of dusty concorde, chipped sapphire and black soot surrounding purple and hemetite Viva, scraped on with an old credit card.. do you know what?? I think she is a little obsessed with this Viva stuff!!!

 The stamps are a mixture of Wendie Rhodes  (@ Kanban Crafts) cogs and gears and Katzelkraft, clocks etc, stamped in black archival and clear ep'ed... well, that's a first, she NEVER does that technique!!

This shot shows my lighting scheme!! I have a couple of daylight lamps and an ordinary light - NO prizes for guessing which side is the latter!!! But I like the play of light on the shiny surfaces... it adds a bit more dimension... ohh get her being all arty then!!

So that's me for tonight.. must get off now and try to sleep!! But why not go over to the Stampman  Challenge blog and see my teamies' work, it's always inspiring, and then join in, cos Jill offers a great £10 voucher to spend for a lucky winner... The theme is monochrome, hence my restricted colour pallette, however, either I boobed - well THAT's nothing new!! or Lisa slightly changed the rules when she wrote it up, cos I did not know it was "white and a colour"... oh well, not making another piece cos I like these guys - perhaps "like" is a bit strong!!!

Thanks for visiting and commenting... I am really grateful for all your wonderful support...
Love and light

I shall also enter this into

Wow! Love those faces... I can never find anything to use for molds - maybe I don't look in the right places, lol.... and that is my excuse for not using my melting pot! Love the shine and shimmer..even if you got the colour wrong!
