Brave: Dee's Friends on a Colllaged Plaque

I am still not the world's greatest colourist, especially of people, but I can't stop practising lol.  For this piece, I used the Brave stamp set, designed by Dee Fitzsimmons for Clarity on a collaged background.
Add torn pieces of book text, map paper and music score onto a chip board plaque. Smooth out air bubbles with a card. Use a large file around the edges to remove the excess.

Give the plaque a light coat of white gesso to knock back the background and once dry seal with a matte medium.
Stamp the Brave character onto watercolour card with Distress Oxide Antique Linen.
Add the mask and stamp the wolf behind the right shoulder.
Remove the mask and colour them with a mixture of Ecoline pens and Kuretake pens. Fussy cut the characters.
Add the characters to the dry plaque taking care not to get glue on the colouring. Seal them with Distress micro glaze.
Use Faber-Castell Pitt artist pens, blended with a Pergamano pen & nib to add shading and colour to the background.
Add further stamping using smaller stamps from the same set in Versamark ink and heat emboss in detail gold powder.
Colour with Faber-Castell Pitt Artist pens.
Rub gold gilding wax all around the edges of the plaque. Add two ribbons through the holes at the top of the plaque and knot them to allow the plaque to be hung up.
