'Nursery Rhymes' ATC

For this months ATC title of 'Nursery Rhymes' at the Stampotique facebook page, I thought I would do a little recycling, of egg shells : Here is poor Humpty Dumpty : 
 The background is made with acrylic paints, then I stamped the cracked image (from a Stampers Anonymous Ultimate Grunge stamp set) at the back and on Humptys (aka Ignis from Stampotique) head in victorian velvet distress ink and clear embossed. The wall was from the same Stampers Anonymous set, and I used the bar code from France Papillon (Stampotique) for the top of the wall.  It was stamped in brown archival ink and clear embossed. The discombobulated (from Stampotique) was stamped onto tissue paper in permanent ink, then torn apart and added with gel medium.

Here is poor Humpty, a little distressed from his fall and I do believe that "All the Kings horses and all the Kings men couldn't put Humpty back together again" :) The egg white and yolk is made from colored thick gloss gel medium. Ignis is colored with copics :)
This ATC trade is so much fun, Stampotique images are so versatile. Its a monthly highlight to create for this trade and see what everyone else comes up with.


Please leave me some love, your comments make my day :)
