Mink 'n Stitches!

Hello Everyone!

A critical part of growth is trying new things and sometimes failing.  I have yet to decide if this creation is a FAIL or a SUCCESS, but it was fun nonetheless!

Instead of using my go-to black ink, I stamped with clear embossing ink and clear embossing powder.  Then, the image was colored with Distress Inks, applied with water and a tiny paint brush.  I added my own black pen outline because I did miss having some of that stark contrast between the image and the background.

The background is a big, scrappy conglomeration of Mica, scraps of paper, plastic, glitter and doodles.


Materials Used:

"Mink" Rubber Stamp by Daniel Torrente from here.
Distress Inks
Dylusions Ink Spray-London Blue
Clear Embossing Ink & Powder
"Go Forth & Conquer" cling stamp by Vintologie 
Fiskars Corner Punch
Heart Punch
Black Paper Flower
Gold & Diamond Stickles

This creation is inspired by The Stampotique Designer Challenge which is to use STITCHES of some sort on your stamped creation!  

Thank You very much for stopping by!
