Mailart Sunday - Wigging out


One of the 'Warm up's' for the Craftorij Zomer Challenge 2015 was 'use only green' and this is what I made. The background is made on a green paper bag and splattered Peeled paint and Moss Green Distress Stains on it. The large stamp is Steampunk Profile Head by Carmen's Veranda. I stamped it with versamark and added a bit of green patina perfect pearl and embossed other parts with Mint Green WOW embossing powder. The text on the left is about how to fit a mens wig is a copy from a vintage text book, ripped and colored with distress stains. As I like word puns, I stamped 'wigging out' with my fave typewriter alphabet font rubberstamps with memento green ivy and tuxedo black on some green cardstock and colored it similarly as the text paper to complete the piece.

With a little more light and offset back ground you can see the details of this piece a bit better.
