Playing again

I'm trying out some techniques that I did a few years ago, my memory is not what it used to be and so I'm now writing each one down in a notebook as I try them.  Thank goodness for YouTube as a memory aid although I couldn't find this on there.  I think it was Jennifer McGuire who I first saw do this and she called it finger painting. Stamped and embossed flowers in white and then roughly coloured them in with distress inks applied with fingers. I do like the water coloured look it gives.
This is my first play with a new stamp I just got from Hobby Arts and I think it will be getting a lot of use. Putting it on these challenges

Flonzcraft Vintage Challenge -  anything goes with new stash


The Sisterhood of Crafters  - something old ( the die,the distress inks and the technique)
                                             - something new - (the stamp)



  1. What a lovely stamp Joan and you've certainly done it justice. You've done a wonderful job with the colouring and I love the different shades of pink that you've achieved X

  2. What a lush colour palette Joan, greens and pinks just go together so well and can see why you like that stamps, one I could be tempted towards.

    And you are not alone with the notes, for years the bottom of my computer frame has been a home for post it notes.

    Many thanks for sharing you pretty card with us at FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenges.
