This week’s challenge #18 at Studio L3 uses the technique outlined on page 47 of Tim Holtz’s Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2, “whitewash stamping.” This challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
With crafting (I have scrapbooked for 8 years but have only recently delved into the mixed media/tag/stamp/ink arena), I find I “work” to fit my mood. If you have been following any of my projects, you may recognize that I have “back to school” in my heart. This is my fourteenth year NOT to be teaching, and yet, every year at this time, I get the “back to school fever.” My husband (a retired school superintendent) and I have collected many old “readers” through the years, so I pulled out one of those books for the photo.
The Graphic 45 abc Primer stamps fit my mood perfectly. I used Distress Inks in Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserves, Shaded Lilac and Salty Ocean. Several weeks ago I created several ticket strips, and I find there are so many times when I grab those for tags!
I am also entering this tag in Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Purple Pizzazz and Ribbon Theme challenge and the Favorite Technique challenge at Simon Says Stamp & Show, as well as Bloggers Challenge, Back to School theme.
