Einstein Tag

Hi lovelies. We are going all monochrome today over on the Prima blog, showing you how much can be done with just two colours! 

And as you can see I had some fun with this assignment....

And here is Albert in all his glory!

I love how versatile the Relics and Artifacts are, creating Albert Einstein from a cast from the Spirit Treasures set. I created his hair from wool, and added highlights and details with a black watercolour pencil.

For the background I used the stone wall stamp from Finnabair's Dream On set and heat embossed with black powder and used a black watercolour pencil to tint the background over the embossed details.

His noble head sits upon a slate pebble which has been decorated with glass glitter using Matte Gel to adhere the glitter softened with a few flowers.
