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!
** Red Brick Distress Inkpad
**white and black cs
**Oriental Background & Symbol Stamps by Fiskars: Asian Inspired
**Mini Mister by Ranger w/water

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.

Love it as a background, very cool!

Linda said...

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

Very nice. My art group is working on teaching each other techniques, thank you for adding to that. Take care

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