Ink Outside The Box...

...and on a tag! Another of the things I made this week...using more of those brilliant stamps by Wendy Vecchi and some Distress inky techniques.




I read through Wendy's book the other night and saw a FAB technique she has written about...basically, swiping colours of Distress Inks over a craft mat, spritzing with water and then dabbing the stamp into the inkyness...and then stamping onto your art...WOW, the result is a brilliant smudgy kind of bleeding look to the image...you have to try it! It is AMAZING!!! **click on the pic to enlarge, you will be able to see what I am waffling on about LOL*


The stamps are all available from The Stamp Attic...I have managed to get hold of the full set now...and...there are new designs coming in the New Year!!! Yah!!!


Thanks for looking...have a great Saturday!
