Carte a Jouer # 3
This is my card for the 3rd challenge set by Isa, (http://isasart.blogspot.com/) to make a card with a Halloween theme and to use make the subject as a textured relief out of tissue paper. I lined my card with black tissue paper and cut out a silhouette of a pumpkin and covered it with white tissue paper using decoupage medium. A thin glaze of orange and green acrylic paints was applied and extended over the edges onto the black tissue to give a faint halo of colour around the pumpkin. Thicker acrylic paint was then applied to the pumpkin and when dry a thin lustre of gold lumiere paint was applied with my finger to highlight the raised areas. This same lustre was applied to the black tissue background.
