and happy Wednesday to you !
Over at the Stampotique Designers' Challenge blog the new Challenge has been set b the lovely and talented Nellie and she wants us to use our favourite background technique. This is what she had to say :
"What's your favourite technique to make backgrounds? I love making backgrounds with distressink on a crafsheet. Quick and easy and yet a different result all the time."
For me my favourite background technique is different every time ! lol But at the moment I quite enjoy the technique that I have used on this week's art journal:
This art journal was started with a piece of white paper. I used a stencil and some model paste to add some texture along the sides. I then used my favorite ink sprays which are Lindys Stampgang. I used Flat Fabios which means as much as there is no sparkle.
I kept spraying, dripping and drying until I was happy with the result. Soo pretty !
I then randomly stamped the background.
Next I stamped the gnomes and the bird on white card stock, coloured them and cut them out. The wall was stamped on pattern paper (Kaiserkraft) and lightly shaded and cut out.
I then painted the speech bubbles, doodled around the edges and stamped the sentiment on them. Everything was then arranged on the page.
Why not play along with us this week, you never know, you might win one of the $30 vouchers at the end of the month. Just remember you can't use Digi Stamps and you can only enter every challenge once.
I used the following stamps, all from the new release:
Thank you for stopping by today !
Hope I gave you some inspiration...
