I have a couple more cards I did for challenges with my on line cardmaking group.
The first we were to use old stamps (at least 3 years old) with a new to us technique. The stamps I used here was the first set I bought in a store and I am thinking it was when we lived in New Jersey and they had an AC Moore there. They don't have any name on them and instead of being on wood blocks they are mounted on clear blocks.
Here is a picture of them, maybe some of you bought these over 10 years ago.
My new technique was using my Tim Holtz spritzer to add a bit more water splashes to the background. I masked off the images first so I didn't have splatter marks on them too.
I didn't put a sentiment on it because I didn't have anyone in mind when I made it or what I would use it for.
Spellbinders -- A2 matting basics A&B dies
Distress ink -- tumbled glass
Distress marker in the Spritzer was broken china
On this next challenge she showed a picture of a stencil and with our stamps we were to reproduce the look of the stencil. I also combined this image with another challenge to use at least 3 different types of coloring medium in a project.
I used paints, H20's, pigment ink, FaberCastell white pitt artist pen and my spritzer again.
Here is the stencil we had to work from:
While writing out this blog entry we got a call that my Father in law is in the hospital again with Heart Failure. It is so hard when you live 9 hours away from family.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,
