So... what have I done for this last post? Well, I decided to share the masking technique with you ... many of you will know this one, but some may not, and many of you will have forgotten it. It allows you to use your stamps in whole new ways, and that has been my theme this month... I will put a list of the stamps used at the end of this piece, so you can hop over to the Artistic Stamper site, and get some for yourself... tee hee!!
archival black then embossed with clear embossing powder. Then, I attached my masking paper... you can see where I had already had a practice 'cos the paper is overprinted with brown...
sepia archival ink, and printed just off centre, over my masked pieces.
old paper distress ink. Then I did the sprinkle thingie - you know, when you spray clear water on to your fingers then splatter it on to the ink. I used a roll of kitchen wipe, that I keep for just such a purpose, to blot up the excess water, to leave spots of lighter colour.
frayed burlap and bundled twigs.
Tim Holtz paper distresser came in handy here!!! I used it quite heavily to rip and tear too!!
This is the whole thing full on to the camera...
