Totally Wired!!

Hi Everyone, and a huge thank you for all your lovely comments for my last post, they are greatly appreciated. Following on from my last post playing with new stuff, I have been playing with Stamper Anonymous Classics #11, but I thought I would have a bit of fun with it.
as you can see I haven't actually taken the classical approach with this one and have given him a colourful modern touch.
 I love this head, I first randomly coloured a piece of white card with Portfolio water soluble oil pastels then blended it with a baby wipe. Then I just stamped on top of it highlighting his eyes with a white gel pen. The glasses were a free stamp some time ago from Craft Stamper magazine and the tape deck and headphones are from Indigoblu set - Loud Music.
My simple sentiment is just #WIRED.
I created the background using Inky Doodles circuit stencil and putting down a layer of black soot distress ink. I then ran it through my Ebosser for an embossed look. The final touch was to randomly spray Dylusions ink in matching coloursto the main image.
I finally added some twisted wire, that I had wound round a paintbrush, to support the word wired.
 I seem to be addicted to bright colours at the moment I think it's due to all this gloomy weather we are experiencing here in the UK at the moment, that or too many fizzy drinks!!!
thanks for visiting and I will see you soon

  4. Those random colors are by change rather than design, but they rock this piece, Amanda! The image is mesmerizing, especially the blue and brown(ish) eyes! Love the wire element--just perfect! Way to go! Mwah! KayW

  5. What a fabulous treatment of the head! So cool - and the twisty wire is a brilliant final touch to the grunged bright colours (the black soot underneath the sprays is a great idea). Sorely tempted by this stamp set, mainly because I've always wanted one of those heads... you're not helping!
