I'm entering this at
Where it's anything goes with stamping.
Hubby and I went on a mini vacation this past week.
I got to visit with a stamping friend that I hadn't seen in a couple of years.
This was one of the pieces I worked on when we stamped together.
When I finished it and held it up to show her, I realized I'd done this
on the back of a piece I'd done earlier.
We had a good laugh about that!
That's what happens when you talk more than pay attention to the stamping!
This was the better side so I decided to make a card out of it.
After placing the stamp in my MISTI, I inked it with distress markers and
stamped it on mixed media paper.
I used my Aqua Painter to move the ink around then stamped again.
I kept adding touches of color to the stamp and moving the ink
with the brush until I was satisfied with the colors.
I added a golden wash by smooshing Distress ink on my
craft mat, diluting with water and brushing around the design.
It was good to see Peggy and we had a nice visit.
Hubby and I got to take a walk on the beach too.
It made for a special week!
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
