Good Monday Morning to you all!!
I am here today to share a project for the latest challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show: The stamp I love but don't use. I know you all have them....that stamp you JUST had to have, but it sits there unused and maybe even not inked... GASP :) I am guilty too :)
The stamp I am going to use today is one of those...I just had to get it, I really love it, but have only inked it up once, about a year ago!
I started the card by making a background with a technique I had yet to try from the Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities Vol 1...using drops of Ranger Alcohol Ink on Glossy Paper, and then blowing the drop with a straw to spread out the ink.
Definitely a fun technique where you are not totally in control of the outcome :) Unexpected directions the ink takes and unexpected new colours develop with layering. Very fun indeed...I will do this again. Just a word of caution....you might want to have a few straws...its like playing a wind instrument, you might add some of your DNA to the piece ;)
So pull out those neglected stamps and pop on over to Simon Says Stamp and Show to join us :) If you are in need of some awesome inspiration you can see the rest of the DT projects HERE.
Simon Says Stamp Superstore is always so generous and every week they award on lucky random participant a store voucher for $50 dollars!!!
Have a fantastic day! Thanks for stopping by to visit! Hugs, TRace
