|Hero Arts Stamps + (Ranger Inks + Water) + Watercolor Paper|
Hannah, one of the ever so talented girls at the Hero Arts Flickr site hosted a 90 minute challenge yesterday. The only thing we knew prior to the challenge, was the time the hostess had it scheduled. I clued in about, oh, 30 minutes prior to the challenge during one of my 'surfing' moments:)
At the appointed 'time' - the hostess post the challenge guidelines and all participants have 90 minutes to make, photograph/scan, and post online their creation.
Yesterday's challenge was to either 1). To use the HA Woodgrain Background stamp (not in my crafty room - yet); or, 2.) Do some sort of distressed/shabby creation.
I went for distressed shabby!
Technique: Distress Inks/water on craft mat, then stamps onto that, and stamped onto watercolor paper. Used a water color brush to fill in colors on top image - which was cut out and added to Italian Poetry (note to self: do not use little micro detail scissors with thick watercolor paper! ACK!).
Edges of papers were distressed.
Italian Poetry, Butterfly Flowers and sentiment from Find Joy.
Other supplies: Lace ribbon, SU linen thread, a HA craft envelope, and purple card stock from Archivers.
Thanks for looking!
