Me again! Just had to buy some plumber's tape and have a go after seeing such great work earlier this challenge!
After never having heard of it in B&Q I went to a local builder's yard. Told the guy that I wanted it for art and he said "Thats ok, we get all sorts in here".
I begun by gluing some card letters onto a cereal packet and placed the plumber's tape over the top. I enjoyed making the letters emerge by pressing with a paper stump. I decided not to paint it but to rub in various colours of treasure gold.
Next I added some star brads.
I used all my experimental offcuts from my canvas of my Dad to create a frame around the piece.
I then mounted the whole thing onto brown card and it is going to be a birthday card for my wonderful son!
Loved playing with plumber's tape. Lots of possibilities!
