The callenge over at Simon says stamp's Monday challenge blog is "Anything goes". How can you not join that kind of challenge?! Especially since your're allowed to combine challenges and I got to use this purdy little number from over at Retro sketches!
I once again pulled out my watercolor paper (a lot of that thing going on in this blog right now) and gave it a light wash of Seedless preserve, Peacock feathers and Picked raspberry distress inks. Once dry, I heat embossed the "Dots" background stamp from Hero Arts with clear emossing powder. I then gave it another, richer, coat of ink
I inked up a few scrap pieces of watercolor paper for my banners and my bow. The bow pieces are also stamped with a linen texture stamp, using a watermark pad, and dusted with some perfect pearl. (You can barely see it - so much for that effort...)
Thanks for stopping by!
