Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #1


Here is my entry for Studio L3's Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #1: WaterStamping Technique from page 35. Linda, you are right---keeping it simple is the key (as difficult as that may be for some of us) so that the technique doesn't get lost. Fun and easy technique, and very effective!
Supplies:
** Red Brick Distress Inkpad
**white and black cs
**Oriental Background & Symbol Stamps by Fiskars: Asian Inspired
**Mini Mister by Ranger w/water
**misc. black fiber/ribbon
**black Stazon inkpad

Deanna, it's spectacular! It reminds me of very elegant vintage Asian wallpaper, which I love! I'm so, SO glad you're doing the Challenge, and I'm looking forward to seeing lots more of your beautiful art.

Hugs,
Linda

Love it as a background, very cool!

The background is fabulous! Maybe it is just my eyes, but it looks 3-D to me.

This is rich and luscious! A gorgeous technique and the perfect color choice; better than velvet.
