- Once the paper was dry, I took a Judikins stencil and sprayed some white Dylusions over the stencil (the white flower in the center).
- after drying, returned the stencil, spritzed some plain water...doesn't show well in photo, but IRL you can see where it faded just a bit.
- Inked an Impression Obsession solid Leaf stamp with Archival Black ink, stamped & restamped without reinking in several places. Used a tiny IO flower, inked in Colorbox pigment white, stamped around. I don't have any of the Dylusions stamps yet. Some of those I like, some I don't care for.
- Used a Heartfelt script stamp (which I used on the Memorial Day Flag from yesterday, and had not yet put away). Inked this script in Colorbox warm green, stamped it on the left edge. I was trying for the layered look as shown in the videos. Figured with this last stamping, I had best stop right there.
Then how to use this as a card? Started hunting some papers, decided that a black mat would emphasize the black leaves, so that was pretty easy. Found the yellow green dsp, liked that with the first 2 papers. Thought a couple of torn corners might be good. Sponged some DI ink over the torn edges to eliminate the white. Hunted up some teal paper for a cardbase, and embossed with a basketweave EF. It looks a little warped in the picture, but truly, it does lie flat.

Sentiment was from an old Stampscape set of words, then diecut with a S/binder ribbon trio, also stamped on a snippet. This was WAY too white, so DI sponging once again, with blues & some green. Matted with black faux mat from the same die.
You know, I think I sort of like this. It's not my usual look, but it was fun playing. I've ordered some water droplets stamps from Ryn (and there's a lovely prize over at the snippet Playground Week 74)
but I couldn't wait. I also can't wait to get these stamps and try them with these sprays.
Hope you like this one. I'm off to join the ladies at the snippet Playground and if you enjoy seeing some beautiful talent, some friendly company, just come right along. As always, thanks for joining me today. See ya soon, and many hugs.
Edit: Just found out that I can submit this for the Saturday Outlawz Paper Ala Mode Challenge...which is another first for me! So come right along, and let's see what happens! LOL.
