Craft Stamper Take It Make It Challenge - Monoprinting with acrylic block

This is my second entry into the Challenge.

I visited the NEC Hobbycraft show last week where I purchased Indigoblu's new Metallic Acrylic Paints in silver, gold and copper.  I was intrigued to find out how they would work for the Monoprinting technique.

It produced a much more subtle effect than my first project, with a lovely shimmer finish.  I had on my desk a piece of work I had stamped and embossed on to acetate using Indigoblu stamps.  It looked quite effective placed over the shimmery background so I added a sun to the background using the gold metallic paint and then matted and layered onto orange and black card stock to compliment.
