Stampotique Designer's Challenge 70::Backgrounds
Time for a Stampotique Challenge! This time it is "Backgrounds". I took a class a couple of weeks ago at my LSS with John from Tsukinedo, they produce Memento inks and several other really cool products. I fell in love with a product called Goosebumps. It reminds me of liquid plastic in a spray bottle. I used it to spray through stencils. After it dries you can ink over it and then wipe off the excess ink. It provides a resist similar to embossing. The texture of it feels like rubber, it is pretty amazing stuff. John also re-introduced me to Memento inks. I don't how I've drifted away from using them but the colors he had us working with are delicious: Peanut Brittle, Pistachio, Morocco (my fave) and Espresso Truffle. Here is a fall ispired tag I made using all these colors and of course the Goosebumps.
I used Goosebumps with a stencil on the bottom of the tag and then stamped the word FLY in the Goosebumps and stamped it next to the bird.
