Men of numbers

Welcome to my second inspiration post for the Country View Challenge, where our theme of Letters or Numbers has been chosen by the lovely Evelyn.

Today I have another journal page, yes mine are like buses... and this one is focusing on numbers, since my first was all about letters.

I first collaged some papers (Prima) as a base for my background and applied Paper Artsy acrylic paints in a few places. A sprinkle or 2 of Rusty Road Infusions (Paper Artsy) spritzed with water add interest to the paint.
More paint was added with a Carabelle stencil (Weft Fabric and Numbers)

I then used several stamps both with black ink and white Fresco paint.

My focal image has been gifted to me by a blogger and artist friend, I thought I knew the brand but alas no… I coloured it with alcohol pens and created a white shadow around it to make it pop.

Studio Light Grunge SL337
The Artistic Stamper : Family Values 062, Small bingo card
No6 Bear: Monsieur Panda A6 set - Art stamp Carabelle Studio (Thanks to the commenter who helped me identify the brand!)

I hope I have inspired you to enter our Country View Challenge, don't forget there is a £20 voucher to win if you do!
