Compendium of Curiosities 2 Challenge – Technique #7

bloom&grow w border.jpg For this week’s challenge at Studio L3, I had fun using my new Artistic Outpost stamps on the background created by using Tim’s technique, Brushless Watercolor, outlined on page 49 of his Compendium of Curiosities, Vol II. This week’s challenge is sponsored by eclectic Paperie.

I used one of Tim’s background stamps and Dusty Concord Distress Stain and Ink. I colored the AO stamped image with Distress Reinkers and a water brush. The ticket is one I created some time ago (I make those a strip at a time, using Tim’s ticket strip die, and then save them for use on tags as desired).

This one was fun and simple. Actually I often find those two adjectives go together for me. Sometimes I’m guilty of over-kill on my tags, and it is refreshing to make something clean and simple!
