Woohoo, gotta love when you get a package of new rubbah! It arrived on Friday, but I had a busy weekend, and never got a chance to dive into it until tonight.
It seems like I'm hitting a mental block lately, time to change things up a bit, so instead of colouring I thought I would do some old fashion stamping.
I'm using a new image from Emily's latest release called Grandma's Gramaphone by new artist Rheea.
I started by stamping the image on watercolour paper using Archival Ink Sepia. I then added distress inks - antique linen, frayed burlap, vintage photo, walnut stain, then spritzed with water. It looked to plain, so I did some stamping on the image using Eclectric mini bubble, mesh and french script with frayed burlap. I then spritzed some water over that - love the look of the water dropplets when it dries.
Designer paper used is some Cosmo Cricket from 2006 - I can't believe I've had this that long! I add some vintage photo and walnut stain around the edges. Finished off with some Bella dots.
It was not what I an visioned when I started, but I think it turned out okay.
Just a reminder for our challenge this week,- it's all about the girls - that's right colour up one of your favourite girl images, email your card to Emily by thursday night.
Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon....
