Make an Impression Challenge

This challenge was to make an impression in your modeling paste by inking up a stamp and stamping it into a thin layer of paste.  This was my third attempt at this, I used Golden's Molding paste since I don't have any of those other pastes and the other tries I had way too much paste, and I think I was using the wrong kind of stamp too, my third attempt I went with this sentiment stamp and inked it with brown ink.  The brown ink mixed with the paste kind of gave it a look of green, so that is what determined the paper I picked out and then I just thought of the frog die my husband had bought for his artwork and I decided to use that.  I added those with foam adhesives because they blended in too much with the paper, I also inked around them.  This went to my great nephew who turned 9.

If you want to give this a try just remember if you don't like how it is turning out you probably have too much paste.  I tore the paper to frame it and added some black soot distress ink to dirty it up a bit.

Great Impressions -- all boy stamp
Golden -- Molding paste w/brown ink
DCWV -- Earth prints & cardstock paper
Poppystamps -- pond frogs dies

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop in today and hope you have a wonderful week to come,
