THE HUNTER QUEEN.

I recently took part in an 'inspiration swap' whereby you sent somebody something that was to inspire them to make something with it.  It could be anything from a die cut to a strip of ribbon or paper.  Or, as I was sent by my buddy Alison, some spanners and a hex key!!!!  Hmmmm, I thought, what am I going to do with spanners???  Well, 4 days ago, I finally came up with something.  This is The Hunter Queen and she stands 16 inches tall.









Everything was painted using acrylic paints and I used some techniques that I've learnt from my ANDY SKINNER workshops - the rusting from TimeWorn and her body and skirt panels from Book of Ruination.

 Her spear is a barbecue skewer with a bit of string tied round.  The spanners were rusted with acrylic paint and some texture medium.  I cut the vine using a Cheery Lynn die on the fantastic Grunge Paper.  Tim Holtz tissue stuff is what I covered the bottom of the dummy and the stand with. Her body strap and buckle were also made with Grunge Paper but her shoulder pads and skirt panels were made with ordinary card stock.  The crown is also Grunge Paper, painted and then rubbed with Treasure Gold waxing paste and finished with a few little gems.
