Good morning friends, followers and blogland. Here I am again dashing to post my altered pages for the Craft Barn Alpha Challenge letter "E". Family matters have overtaken me over the past three weeks and "E" has had to wait until this week to be worked out. On Wednesday I sat down and flipped through "E" in my dictionary and came up with Egyptology.
Got to be quick only a few hours to post this at the Craft Barn, I used five stamps Judikins Carol's Cube, Artifacts Cube and Egyptian Cube, Tim Holtz Bitty Grunge, distress inks in peacock feather, scattered straw, fired brick, pumice stone and spiced marmalade and a blue ink pad without any info! The artifacts hieroglyphics were stamped and embossed in gold onto coloured squares and also under the definition. The leaf was also stamped and embossed with gold. The lotus, eye of Horus and scarab were stamped in black, parts embossed in gold and coloured. The "E" was coloured and stamped and added to the page.
The sun ray and bricks were stamped to represent Ra and the pyramids, a picture of an Egyptian fresco was coloured and edged with pumice stone ink and attached to the page. I finished by adding the definitions printed on velum and coloured to look like papyrus
If I was starting again I would stamp the lotus and the eye and emboss them with gold as I did with the leaf, but otherwise I am pleased with how the pages turned out.
