Was thinking Snwflakes or Snowmen as they are a current favourite but as usual, it never quite pans out like that!! I was rummaging around for some festive snowflake confetti and I stumbled across some really old Egyptian stamps.......along came another thought....... lets do a SCARAB beetle Egyptian style.
The background is smooched with gold paint and a pearlised blue ink, I used my Egyptian stamps to create a border. I made my own Scarab stencil and mask, using black and purple inks to add colour.
It looked better without being coloured in but its too late now.
The sun is a mix of orange, red and gold paint.
Had fun using my new stencil cutting hot pen, I'm sure practice will make perfect!!
