Hello Lovely People!
Thanks so much for coming back to spend a bit of your precious time, it means so much to me!
I have an ATC to share today made with wonderful stamps by Lost Coast Designs. I wanted to feature one of the new Grunge Borders and Dictionary Words for you today.
Just in case, an ATC is 2 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches. I really love the challenge to play in a small space, it is amazing what you can fit into the area and to me, it changes how I see a lot of design elements.
The base is made from the Grunge Border 3" stamp. It is about 3 inches tall and 11 inches long! I don't have a block or mounting supplies for a stamp this size, so....I improvised a bit. I inked up the stamp flat on the table with Archival Cornflower Blue, Tree Branch and Black in random spots. Then I carefully pressed the cardstock half sheet onto the stamp. I loveeeee the way the image came out. All new to me, I know the technique is established by still thrilling :)
"Joy" is stamped in Cornflower Blue Archival ink, one of my new favs.
The edge is inked with Distress Ink Peacock Feathers and sloppy wetted, messy is my rule.
Thanks for reading! I hope you have time to pop over to the Lost Coast Shop and check out our Challenge, too!
