Hello, it's time for a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping and this time Dot has chosen 'Use Your Inks' and you can use them anyway as long as you use them to stamp as well.
The prize for the Lucky random winner will be a stamp from our Sponsor Ink Art Designs
For the background of my card I took inspiration from Brenda
who made this tag
a while ago. I loved the background, and as I've had this stamp from Crafty Individuals for quite a while (un-inked), thought it might be something to try for my 'inky' piece. I used Antique Linen, Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac and Stormy Sky DIs and spritzed and dripped with water. Then stamped randomly using two colours, I used Frayed Burlap and Dusty Concord.
My butterfly was stamped with Black Archival and I watercoloured with Fossilized Amber DI, when it was dry I applied a little Frosted Lace stickles and rubbed over with my finger, which just left a feint shimmer. I decided on the position of the butterfly and then stamped the antennae with black so that I didn't have to fussy cut this part. I masked off part of the sentiment and again stamped with the two inks.
The base layer was distressed with inks and then a script stamp using Frayed Burlap.
The rest of the Design Team have some wonderful inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog, where you will also find all the challenge details.
