#136 Man cave challenge, the boxer.

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hello stamp friends.
Today an artjournal page.
I chose the boxer stamp, because it fits so well into the "man cave" theme.

I worked on Terschelling 300 gram watercolor paper 24x30cm.
This paper has a rough structure and absorbs a lot of water.
And that is necessary because we are going to work with Brusho.

What materials I used:

Further materials
Stencil: numbers - arrow - chevron.
Brusho - Orange - Leaf green - Yellow Ocre - Turquoise.
Stazon Timber brown.
Posca pen white.
Black pencil.
Skin colored marker.
White acrylic paint.
Thin paper to stamp the boxer on.

We are going to start with the design of the stamps for the background.
Let the stazon ink dry well.

Spray plenty of water on the paper.

Sprinkle small amounts of brusho on the water as you see fit.
Do this very carefully, because brusho is a true color explosion.
Think of it like this, better to sprinkle two or three times than too much at once.
See for yourself whether water needs to be added or whether it should be dabbed off.

With a stencil and white acrylic paint you sponge the numbers, arrow and chevron.

With a spatula you make 2 x wipes with white acrylic paint.
When its dry you can stamp the badass stamp on the paint.

Now only finishing, with the posca pen some lines around the stamps,
 and give the checkerd border  white blocks. 
Use the black pencil to outline the arrow, chevron and numbers.
And give the boxer some shade with the black pencil.
And then you're done, I hope you enjoyed this step by step. 

You might like to join the challenge.
        You don't necessarily have to use LCD stamps, but you do have to stamp with real stamps.
Read through the rules and then join in the fun.
You have a chance to win new stamps.
