Faux Cameo

Cameo?  What does that bring to mind?  A vintage brooch with a beautiful silhouette?  A cameo appearance on a TV show or in a movie?  That is the challenge for this week at  Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge   

 I went back and forth on what I wanted to try.  I decided to play with some of the putty mold and create a faux cameo.  
To create my faux cameo I used the  Ranger Melt Art Mold and Pour
I mixed the putty together and pressed my vintage cupid into the putty. I let it sit to harden and then I heated up a mix of clear and pink embossing powder.  When the two were melted together I poured them into my mold. 

After the cherub had cooled off,  I popped him out of the mold.  I have to admit I am addicted to the mold and pour putty. I had to purchase more Mold and Pour so I could continue making more projects.  I made a batch of gold buttons with Stampendous Aged Gold Embossing Enamel

For my canvas I started with a burlap canvas:

I painted over the surface with a mix of pink and white acrylic paint:
I glimmer misted crepe paper and added white and pink acrylic paint to the surface. 
I stamped script onto the dried crepe pieces. I then decoupaged the crepe paper randomly over the background.   I then stamped the Eiffel Tower onto tissue paper and used the same medium to attach it to the background. 

I had a clock face from an old discarded clock that I used to stamp the vintage lady onto. I hid the hole for the clock hands with a black gem which I used as a beauty mark for my image. 

I stamped the sentiment and Paris onto vellum which was used to accent the images.  I die cut the oval frame and the butterfly and them used versamark to heat emboss them with black embossing powder. I repeated a few times to give them a nice shiny thick surface.

  11. Holy cow! Your genius never ceases to inspire! I love how your little cupid turned out. Sometimes my molded objects are a little wonky, so I admire your molding skills! I also thought it was brilliant to use glimmer mist on crepe paper! Thanks for the constant flow of inspiration from your blog to my brain!
