Sunset

Another previously uninked stamp, sadly it does not have a name or
stamp company on it.  I had been wanting to play with the technique where
you scribble on an acrylic block with water color markers, mist with water
and stamp. My Tim Holtz markers were perfect for this.  I embossed my
 image and like how that gave it some dimension. Splitcoast stampers
just added a tutorial today on a similar background with alcohol markers
with a marbled effect, looking forward to trying that.

Very pretty - love the technique - will have to add it to our list of "things to do" when we get together. You could put just about any sentiment on this.

Your spritzed colors are so perfect for a sky behind your wonderful sunset scene, Donna! I love the great use of all that pp, too!! (You are going to LOVE doing the alcohol inks on glossy paper!) Thank you so much for playing again in my NBUS Challenge!! Hugs, Darnell

I'm really impressed by your stash of unused stamps, some really beautiful ones you've got hidden away! Love the silhouette feel of this one and how you teamed it up with a background put together with different DPs,

I have this stamp too, it's from: Just for Fun. I got it over 15 years ago after it was highlighted in a LSS class I was taking. Wonderful job using it with that technique!

Donna said...

Thanks Laurie, I have it labeled now.
