Surface Preparation:

• Seal the surface with a coat of Gesso. Sand lightly.
• Light Buttermilk. Let dry.
Frame –
• Basecoat the frame with Orange Flame. Shade with Scarlet. Highlight with Saffron Yellow.
• Line the stitching with Lamp Black (or the identipen).
• Add some sparkle with the orange powder from the EK33 Autumn Fling Embossing Powder
Kit. Simply rub the stamp pad over the painted surface then sprinkle with the orange powder.
Tap off excess onto a piece of paper. Heat with the heat gun until melted.

Stamp Images:
• Stamp the Gnome images with either the StazOn or Ranger Archival black ink pad. (Other
inkpad brands may smudge with the painting mediums, especially the Matte Medium. Test other
brands first.)
*Be sure to line up the center piece with the frame before stamping. (I use a pencil to
mark)
• Use the identi-pen to fix any imperfect stamped areas and to line a box around the words.
• Seal the surface with DecoArt Matte Medium to prepare for painting.
