Anything but Ink.



'Anything but Ink', is Fashionable Stamping Challenge's new theme. 
There is a full explanation over here, together with some fantastic examples from my design team sisters.
Also information on the generous prize from our regular sponsor Flonz Crafts


After a few experiments involving gesso, ink spray etc.  that went wrong 'big style'. I decided to use Water colours to stamp up my main image.
  I have to admit I did enjoy painting the rubber image, giving it a light spray of water [ too much water =  loss of detail],  the result  I was happiest with, you can see above.




I used Spellbinders Labels die cuts to mount the image onto an embossed layer. Now because I decided to  keep away from any ink, I used Pans Pastels for the shading.

I will be joining the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge which is 'Anything Goes.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I do so appreciate your comments.
