I am really loving this Feeling Sentimental stamp set! And the fact that it’s free during Sale-a-Bration makes me love it even more!
I tried a new technique (new to me, anyways) that I saw our stamping leader, Shelli Gardner, demonstrate at convention last summer. She took paper from a book and used a paintbrush to apply Gesso to the pages and then stamped over that once it dried. I loved the look of that, and now several months later, I thought I would try something similar. I used our First Edition Specialty dsp. I like how it toned down the black newsprint a bit so it doesn’t compete as much with the stamped image. If you try this technique, here’s a tip — not only do you have to let the Gesso dry for a while, but you’ll also need to let your stamped ink dry for a while too (if you’ll look closely, you can see that I didn’t do this on my attempt here and I smudged the red ink and got it on the banners too. Oops!).
Well, enjoy your Thursday! Thanks for stopping by!
