More art with my Mailbox Muse stamps and NIJI Watercolors.  For this project I used images from two different sets of Mailbox Muse Stamps, the Muse Architecture Stamps and Muse Gothic!

Mailbox Muse Stamps: Muse Architecture and Muse Gothic
Niji Watercolor Paint Set
Echo Art Board
VersaColor Black 
Craft paper
Smooch Spritz - Frosted Grape

On the Craft paper with VersaColor Black stamp the Gargoyle from the Muse Gothic stamp set, fussy cut the image.

On the Echo Art Board stamp the column from the Muse Architecture stamp set with VersaColor Black, repeat as pictured above. 

Paint the Gargoyle and Echo Art Board with Niji Watercolor Paint Set using a  Waterbrush.

Spray Smooch Spritz - Frosted Grape on craft mat and water down a bit.  Add a little color to the legs for shadowing, the wings to pop the body and the eyes.....

This is one spooky guy!


  1. Cute ATC Lyneen. Those stamps, the Muse Gothic and Architecture, are some of my favorites.

  2. This is my favorite gargoyle. I use him with fantasy themed card and Halloween. He looks great with the columns!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
