Back to school


Hi everyone!

It's September which means we are celebrating 
STAMPtember all month long.

That is why this week's theme is STAMP IT using SSS stamps. 


As always you can win a $50 voucher and spend it over 


Since here in Poland all the primary and secondary school students
start their school year on first day of the month, I made a very quick 
and easy tag with a proffesor and an alphas full bakground.


I stamped in black on black and applied clear embossing powder.
Then I just used one of my fave techniques - dry brush painting.
I used white gesso in a very tiny amount and kept smearing on my tag
several very thin layers until I was happy with the result. 


I took a leftover of my last project with alcohol inks and cut out the letters
which made a nice contrast to the black background.

Don't look back



This week we all are using 
SOMETHING CLEAR
which means we'd like you to use acetate/vellum/etc. 

We are also showcasing amazing VISIBLE IMAGE products.
They produce totally awesome stamps and stencils.

On this project you can see my very FIRST attempt to alcohol inks.
(I used another one for my ATC challenge two weeks ago)


I love the beauties people make with them and wanted to try them too.
My make it's totally not like all those I saw on internet
but at least I started and tried. Still don't now if it's my thing...


For my background/frame I used up a base full of distress oxide 
and standard inks which I made some of those days without a mojo. 
Love to make them in advance and then just pick up one when I need it. 


For the focal point I stamped on a rigid acetate with StazOn ink.



And used beneath my alcohol inks base.
