Art journal page with Distress Inks and Stencils - Marjie Kemper

Sometimes I create entire art journal pages with Distress Inks… and today was one of those days. The Distress Ink colors I used are Broken China, Fossilized Amber, Mustard Seed and Peacock Feathers.  All of my black stamping (focal image and top/bottom border) is done with Jet Black Archival Ink.

I inked up a separate piece of paper large enough for the focal image stamp. Unfortunately that stamp has gone AWOL at the moment (hate when that happens!) so I can’t tell you who the manufacturer is… if anyone knows, please leave the info in the comments. Update: Thank you, Shari, for the info! This stamp is by Lost Coast Designs and it is called โ€˜American Gothic Party.โ€™ 

The frame is an oldie stamp that I stamped and cut out, then placed over the funny people.
