Since I started selling my work I thought it was time to step outside my comfort zone.
At Prairie Art and Stamps (a local craft store here) I had seen these stamps
They are different, very grunge and dark.
These are not stamps I would normally buy but I got to thinking...
someone will love these
and so I took the plunge and bought two new stamps.
Here are my newest members...
and Moth Fab
Card using Moth -
In the close up you can read the stamp from Unity by Donna Downey. It says "She remained true to herself"
I used Tim Holtz paper on white card stock. I stamped the image and colored it with copics and then added some stickles to it. I used my slingo gel pen to add the white around the outside and chalk ink for the sentiment. I added dimensionals to the image and adhered it to the card.
My card using Prairie Misfit:
I used random ribbon, added some dimensionals and there you have it.
The other project I did using this stamp was on paper adhered to canvas.
I went into my Basic Gray stash and found this great yellow paper. I stamped the image, colored it with copics and added stickels to it. I stamped the sentiment from Donna Downey's The Artist in You set.
I sooo sooo sooo LOVE her stamps!!
I distressed the edges with some brown distress ink.
Then glued the paper to the canvas using a white glue.
I decided I needed something else and
decided on using Ranges/Tim Holtzs
I thought about adding funky ribbon around the outer edge but as you can see I decided against that.
Here are some close ups
So there you have it. Some new items and new pieces of art!!! Let me know what you think. I took a step out of my comfort zone... what about you?
Have a great weekend and till next time....
