Marvellous Monoliths - Visible Image

I'm sharing a fun project I made just the other day, NOT a card but a fabulous monolith, designed and manufactured in the UK by Visible Image. This simple but versatile MDF project just changes your crafty perspective, and if you are new to mixed media, it's a fantastic place to start. But there's no limit to your imagination, so they are perfect for crafters of all levels of experience, and make a fabulous statement piece of artwork!
All of the stamps featured in this project are from the Summer 2016 release. For the first side I went for Mr Bone Jangles as my feature, on a background of black paint, covered in crackle glaze, and then a coat of orange acrylic, which then separated so brilliantly to reveal the black underneath. Bone himself is stamped and embossed onto white card, then coloured with a bit of orange and red ink, then Music on, world off, completed the look, with the headphones (they fit Bone perfectly) For my stamping onto the painted monolith, I just used Versamark clear ink, white or black powder, and heat set it. 

For the reverse, I painted, blue, then crackle glaze , then black. A combination of inks, stencils, and embossing paste created the backgound, and a bit of dabbing of white acrylic round the edges made sure that blue version of  Bone stood out. He's again, stamped and embodded, onto a bit of shaded painted white card, and stuck on to the monolith.This time I stamped the words also onto painted card and adhered it with pva glue. A bit of matching decor on the base and the project was complete.
