Playing with distress and Sheena!

I have some Sheena Douglass stamps that I don’t use often enough that’s for sure.  One of them is this large architectural stamp.  I love the image but never remember to use it!


I stamped it out twice recently and then never got round to using it so it just sat in the heap of things on my desk.  So I grabbed the one stamped in grey and decided to ink it up.  I chose warm colors of Fossilised amber, Abandoned Coral,  Spiced Marmalade, Spun Sugar and Pumice stone distress inks and started blending them with the blending tool.  Then I distressed the edges.  I kept the Pumice Stone to the edge of the picture.  Then I flicked water at it and then dried it off to create the blotches.

I also found the background on the desk from I think an art journalling sample made last year possibly during the class and never used.  It seems to be a distress ink and grunge paste background.  I felt the colours worked with the stamped panel so mounted them up.  Then added the sentiment and some embroidery floss to embellish.

Now I have another of those images stamped out in black… wonder how it will differ when I get round to using it?

Happy crafting!
