You'll hear from me ... collage

Hi all, Suzanne here today, sharing a collage.

supplies used
fish skeleton FAS Q3302
NOF circle SW R09062
script stamp from plate 'writing letters' NSPL107

gesso 3024-32314
versamark ink pad TS-VM001 
decoart media ultra matte varnish DMM24-71 
embossing powder ultra fine white 
stazon ink pad jet black

I made a collage on a piece of cardboard (15x15 cm) after I primed it with gesso. For the background underneath I painted the panel with acrylic paint transparent yellow iron oxide, splattered on some drying time extender and wiped it off again after the paint was dry, bits of the script stamp were added with stazon jet black. The grape vine on the left was copied onto vellum and glued down. The collage was finished then by heat embossing the fish skeleton and adhering the cut out words.
That's it, short and sweet ;-) I'm sure all of you know how to do a collage ... if you have any questions please leave them in the comment section.

Thanks so much for stopping by and having a look. Maybe this panel can be an inspiration for you to join in our de stempelwinkel stampers challenge which is 'flora or fauna' this time.

Hugs, Suzanne xx
