Sci - fi Fossil - how to change the look of your stamp!

Hi all

For todays post I'm bringing you a little sci-fi person! I've used Andy's Ammonite stamp on calico, DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics, decoupage glue, inks, pens and a gem!
For the main image I took Andy's Ammonite stamp from his Fossil set (you can see the range here), added my own design (for a full YouTube tutorial on how I did it, have a look here.....)
I used washes of paints, added definition with pens and a gem.

The background for the sci-fi person is a 7x5 inch upcycled canvas board with lots added to it, modelling paste, paints, gems, rusty wire, and some embellies...have a look at my blog for the full details!

Here's another way to use the same fossil stamp!
The background for this tag was a mixture of decopaged paper, paint, stampendous embossing enamels and more stamps. The main image is created in the same way as the sci-fi person, just a different design.
The final project, this 8x8 card again using the same technique for the main image. The card blank was stamped with dye inks and the fossil all the way around. Layered up with fabrics and upcycled cereal packet, scraps of cloth and some jazzy thread.
There is a detailed step by step for the canvas background for the Sci-Fi person on my blog (click here). And a detailed YouTube tutorial on how I designed the Sci-Fi person, transfering my altered design onto my project and how I painted the shaded detail on all 3 projects here.
