Playing with Darkroom Door stamps today! I used the new 12-up Shadow Stamp to make the background for Mr. Bright Idea on this jumbo tag. Linking to Simon Says Stamp & Show for their “S” challenge using my Shadow Stamp.
I used Salty Ocean and Mustard Seed Distress Inks from Ranger to color my stamp. First I pressed the ink pads directly onto the stamp here and there, and then I used my ink blending tools to blend the colors and get rid of any straight lines from the ink pads themselves.
Next I spritzed that inked-up stamp with a light mist of water before stamping it onto my tag.
Here it is after it dried, and after I’d added more Salty Ocean Distress Ink (love that blue!) around the edges.
I’d also like to share an opportunity. Seth Apter is having a celebration on his blog next Wednesday, and he invites artists and bloggers to re-post and share their favorite project(s) from the past. I remember wanting to join in last year when I realized Seth does this annually, but I never got around to it. Next week I will, and I hope many of you will too. See Seth’s post for the details. I got to take one of his classes at Art-Is-You Art Retreats in CT last year – he is wonderful teacher!
