... I dunno, I turn me back for five minutes and three weeks has whizzed past! I have been busy playing with some of the new Distress Ink colours that have now arrived in the Room of Stash... I have been longing for a proper grey colour in the range for about 381 years and finally my wish is fulfilled with Hickory Smoke. I know it has been out since June but I have only just managed to get me mitts on it! Of course, it would be rude not to give Wilted Violet a new home too...
I made a nice inky background using both these colours in Distress Paints... I love the smooshyness of a Distress Paint and the fact that the colour co-ordinate perfectly with the inks is a bonus too. Once the background was dry, I used two different Layering Stencils to add Hickory Smoke and Wilted Violet ink over the background for a little added interest. How gorgeous is that stamp??? It is from Carabelle Studio and is my new fave so expect to see it on everything :O)) I stamped using Jet Black Archival and then stamped again onto cream card and cut out a few of the butterflies, coloured them and then added little twists of rusty wire for bodies. The tag is not quite finished as it needs a tonne of embellies adding to it but you get the gist!
I will be back tomorrow with a new Sunday Stamper theme.... I have decided that my hit and miss approach to the Sunday Stamper needs to stop and I need to get back to being regular with it... so from tomorrow onwards, it will be a fortnightly challenge... that way I have no excuse to miss a week! My Mojo is still lurking somewhere on the boundaries of my periferal vision... I am hoping that a good clean and tidy of the Room of Stash next week will prompt some inky action! Watch this space! Thanks for looking... hope you are having a grand weekend. TTFN
