The base of this tiny creation is an exquisite shrine from Alpha Stamps. The blue tint comes from my favorite, guilders paste. A layer of acrylic paint and then some kromocrackle and I had a really nice textured shrine base to work with.
Brass Filigree Corners, that were also altered with paste and paint, were added to the top portion of the shrine. Adding this type of brass finding to any project is a simple way to add a very nice detail. The imagery also comes from Alpha Stamps. I love the scale of this particular sheet as the images are much smaller.
Since the shrine kits has layers, I wanted to cover up some of the evidence of construction. I used a bit of tissue tape and then added layers of paint and patina color. Another small detail is a bit of trim added for another layer of texture.
I hope to head into my creative cave today and play with the gypsies a bit more as I am participating in a gypsy swap through Alpha Stamps. Sometimes having something I "have to do" helps get me out of a creative rut...which I have been in for some time.
Bring on the gypsy mojo!
