Egypt Stamped Paper Clay ATC

A few months ago I posted a tutorial on “How to Create Backgrounds & Embellishments Using Paper Clay and Rubber Stamps”.  One of the example backgrounds in the tutorial was this Egyptian inspired clay ATC.  I wanted to show you how I finished it.

Below are the rubber stamps I used to stamp the clay.
Here is the stamped dry clay before painting.
First I painted the clay with various Ranger Alcohol Inks.
 Next I painted the details and the brass pieces with metallic acrylic paint.  My husband always teases me that I use a microscope and a one hair brush.  In this case he wasn't far off the mark.
I adhered the brass pieces with Ranger Glossy Accents.

Here are links to some online rubber stamp stores that carry Egyptian inspired rubber stamps.

Laura -

This is stunning! It looks like a hieroglyphic that would have been painted in a pyramid when it was new. Your colors are so rich!
