This is for FS78 over at Splitcoast today, Shellapoo! Not only is Michelle a talented and kind hearted stamper, she leaves comments and visits blogs regularly too. Read her story over in the FS thread and you will be touched by her too.
I chose to case her Trust card.
Changes include: Stamps, Colors, tag instead of rectangle layer, fibers, different resist and an additional layer to the base.
I started out by stamping the leaves on Vanilla CS with Gesso and letting them dry. Then, using a Tim Holtz technique, spritzed with a mixture of distress ink/perfect pearls and water. It resists the gesso. Well, I usually do this with acrylic paint daubers and the paint doesn't stay such a stark white as the gesso did. I set it aside and went on with other things. Just before bed, I took another look at it and decided to brayer over it with a Kaleidacolor autumn leaves pad. Yeah, it worked! I chose not to brayer the tag, just sponged the edges with Fired brick Distress ink. The edges of the main layer were scraped with a toothbrush and Versafine Vintage Sepia. Fibers are Basic Grey. All supplies available from Rubbernecker Stamp Co.
