A Few More King Tut ATC's

Sorry! Gone a bit mad on these Tutankhamun's. This is the second set I've made, promise not to put the third set out until next month!! They are all (but one) spoken for, and I'll post them off A.S.A.P.
Number one: (swapped) I had a go with Shrink Plastic on this one. In the top picture on your right, you can see I've stamped the image with StazOn Jet Black ink on the plastic sheet and then coloured it in using the same gel pens....twelve hours later... and it still hadn't dried!
I'll have another go and experiment with the different pens I have. Anyone know which pens are best let me know!
I've used acrylic paints before but the colour looked really...umm thick and a bit dull...It was a Christmas Card (with Snowy the snowman) and if I can find a picture, I'll post it a bit later. After dabbing the shrunken Pharaoh with a tissue, I cut it out, punched a hole using my Crop-a-Dial and then (the fun part) heated it using my heat gun. Had to chase it round the work top though! Surprisingly, (seeing he lived in a desert) Tut didn't like the heat one little bit! (*note, a fact I found very interesting while researching my 'never ending story', The Sphinx was not worn away by sand, as many people believed, it was worn away by....water!)
Number 2: Above. (swapped) I used my tiny little Woodward Tag punch and a tiny stamped image from a clear stamped set called Habico Clear Stamps, Egypt 1. You get ten in the set. I've just Googled the name and can see they also do, Egypt 2, 3, 4, and 5. I might see if my local, (not really a craft) shop can get me any of the other sets!
Number 3: (swapped) I made a little scroll, using cocktail sticks and beads and stamped on some hand made paper with the third rubber stamp in the wooden set. Added a bit of gold on the beads using a gold pen. I've also gone round the edges using a gold pen. The little shinning dots are peel- offs
Number 4: I used the 'Eye' stamp, from the wooden stamp, set, which came with The Pharaoh and the script stamp. I also gave some of the Tuts gold ear-rings, using the waste dots from the peel-offs.
Number 5: (swapped) I've used another image from the clear stamps set, The Obelisk at Karnak Temple perhaps? I've heat embossed it and mounted it on some black card and fixed it with 3D foam pads.
This half Pharaoh was also coated with some water-base Matt Acrylic Vanish~ for no reason other than to see what it would look like. Made it a little duller, and at one time I thought the gel pens might run! (But I bribed them not to and they didn't!)
Number 6: I did a bit more 3D work behind the Pharaoh, some more stamping with the clear stamps and I added a little handle of gold thread...Don't know why I put that on, but it looked cute and of course, you can hang it up if you want to!
The claw stand they are all sitting on, is in fact a mobile phone holder.
Back here in blog land all looks straight and in line....sort of...(Who said the camera never lies!?)
Let's press 'publish post' and see what happens shall we....
oops! Aw well...never mind! Back tomorrow!! Thank you for stopping by!!
