Anything Goes at C4E

Hi Everyone
It's another week at Crafts4eternity and it's an
For my Anything Goes DT piece I have been playing around again with using stencils as stamps.
I have used Clarity Butterfly stencil as a stamp, randomly placing ink from mini distress ink pads onto the stencil then lightly misting with water and then placing ink side down to transfer the image. I really love the water colour effect that this technique produces. This was all onto a piece of mixed media card that I had again lightly splattered and splodged with similar colurs of distress inks.
The script stamp is from Indigoblu and stamped with distress ink for a softer look, while the flowers - again from Indigoblu - Nature Set.
Just for you is from my stamp stash (origins unknown) both of these I have stamped using Archival ink - Potting shed.
One Randomly selected "ANYTHING GOES" project will win 3 downloads of their choice from
"Stamping all Day".
Hope you can find the time to pop over HERE and join in with us all.
Thanks for stopping by and see you soon.
