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?
