Over at the Craftorij, Coby has set the first Stampotique Challenge of 2014 as 'three'. I played with my Art Journal and came up with this :
I coloured the page with Pan Pastels in two tones of yellow and brown around the edges. I still aged the edges with Archival Ink in the colour Coffee because I thought it needed a bit more definition. I then used number stamp, the 3 of course, to stamp the background with Vintage photo Distress Ink. to keep it subtle I stamped it off once first before putting it on the page. I also used a script stamp with the same ink without stamping it off first. I then took 3 manilla Tags and stamped Teddy on there. (The photo doesn't do him any justice actually). It looks better in real life. I coloured Teddy with alcohol markers and did some background stamping with a swirl stamp in Scattered Straw Distress Ink. I aged the edges of the tags with the Scattered Straw Distress Ink and with Vintage Photo. I put some Raffia Ribbon through the holes and lastly put the word 'three' on with sticky letters.
Thanks for stopping by !
