Here is my entry for the Sunday Challenge over on UK Stampers.
Make a 6x6 page in the theme of 'spice'.
The base is a 6x6 piece of pattened paper stuck onto card which I covered with distress inks in spiced marmalade, marigold and brick red.
The next layer is a piece of card which I used one of Tim Holtz masks on then coloured using the same colours as before then I added frayed burlap to the edges.
The bottom section was covered with a piece of left over card from another project.
The clock face (Crafty Individuals) was stamped twice, once onto cream card (base) and once onto glossy (face).
This was then coloured around the edges and attached with staples.
The wings were stamped onto acetate and coloured foil adhered to the back.
I made a mold of a mans chest (taken from a statue I found at a car boot sale about 18 months ago) which I cast in white (which I coloured with distress ink before it was molded to make it flesh coloured) Delight paper clay. this was applied with silicon glue.
Words stamped as usuall from my faithful Pixie alphabets (PSX). Apart from 'spice'.

Totally amazing and beautiful, all the pieces work so well and it would look perfect as a wall hanging. The cast of the mans chest is fabulous, I love it all. If only I could make something like that. Thanks for sharing :)
