For my theme I got thinking..... and if you're anything like me, you either have a heap of new stash still waiting to be used, or your Pinterest Boards are full of techniques that you want to try but just haven't got round to it yet lol. So I thought lets have a challenge that might get us using some new stash or a new technique.
Our sponsor is The Stampman.
I decided to alter a canvas using some beeswax that I'd bought a few months ago and never used, I also used an Andy Skinner skull mask for the first time. The image and background paper are from the Gecko Galz August products.

Background Paper from the Gecko Galz Life’s a Circus Paper Set.
PaperArtsy Script Stamp.
Black Archival Inkpad.
Dreamweaver Gold Embossing Paste.
Crafters Workshop Harlequin Mask.
Andy Skinner Skull Mask.
Star Sequin Waste.
Olive Bronze Treasure Gold Gilding Wax.
I painted the canvas with the acrylic paint and stamped the script onto the tissue paper with black Archival ink.
I melted the wax in my melt pot and brushed some wax over the surface of the canvas, then I lay the background paper over the canvas and brushed some of the wax over it then I did the same with the image and tissue paper.
I then stencilled the skull, stars and harlequin using the gold embossing paste.When the paste has dried I brushed some wax over the surface and smoothed the surface with myheat gun. I then let some of the wax drip on the edges – when the drips of wax had set I went over them with the gilding wax using my finger. The last thing I did was to polish the surface with a soft cloth.
Thank you everyone that entered the Bingo challenge, Mervi will have a difficult time choosing her top three.
