Funky Fossil Designs "Wild and Free" New Stamp Preview

Funky Fossil Designs will be releasing a selection of new goodies on Friday 14th May.  I have used the new "Wild and Free" clear stamp set, designed by my friend Tina Ashton, to create this sample a hanging double-sided MDF heart.

I coated both sides of the hanging heart with white Gesso as a base.  On the reverse side I used Versafine Clair "Warm Breeze" ink through the Funky Fossil "Zen Flower Background stencil". I then coloured the central floral lines with a metallic gold pen.

On a piece of rice paper, I stamped the sentiment, from the new "Wild and Free" stamp set, using Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink.  I then applied it over the stencil design using PVA glue to adhere the rice paper to the heart.

On the main side, I adhered a sheet of the new "kaleidescope" patterned paper, cutting it to shape. I stamped the hare and from the new "Wild and Free" stamp set in position and then again on a piece of plain white card.  I then stamped the sun to the left of the hare.

I used a selection of Funky Fossil stencils in various shades of Versafine Clair ink to fill the detail around the hare on the patterned paper.  I made some splatters of white Posca Pen before filling the circle of the sun with gold Stickles.

I painted the hare using Cosmic Shimmer watercolour paints which do give a fabulous shimmer finish.  I then cut out the shape and adhered to the heart.
