A short while ago one of my favourite stamp brands started to have a monthly challenge. As you know I do love a challenge so today I thought I play along. The stamp brand I am talking about is Lost Coast Designs and their stamps are pretty awesome. I don't own many yet, but the ones I have I use again and again. Anyway this months theme is text/letters and this is what I made :
I started with some card stock which I coloured in a totally new way for me. I used a brayer and three colours of distress inks. I just rolled them over the paper. I like the effect and I will do this again some time. I then did some background stamping with a text stamp and used a bottle cap to make the rings with white and black India Ink and also did some splatters. I planned to take the sewing machine around the edges but it has stopped working so I had to rely on my fineliner. I stamped the Tres Caballeros on some texted paper and cut them out. I separated the text from the main stamp. I matted both stamped pieces on black card stock. Next I stamped a white doily with the same text stamp and used a little bit of it underneath the main image. I also added a bit of bakers twine. Lastly I adhered everything to the pages.
Thanks for stopping by !
