Needed a bit of playtime yesterday
and had been wanting to try an over-stamping technique.
This is how it turned out :D
I started by making a random background using distress inks
and a make-up sponge.
This gave me a nice leafy pattern
*much greener in RL but light terrible yesterday*
One of the Hunkydory stamp sets I bought last week has a layering butterfly,
where you stamp the solid shape...
then add a darker pattern layer on top...
I love how this system works :D
Adding a few tiny feint butterflies helps give the background more depth.
So now I wanted a darker feel...
same technique but using grungier colours.
I had seen a stamper on tv use a single stamp to create a similar effect as the layering stamps.
By simply sticking the stamp on the block the wrong side up
you get a rough base shape*though it will be slightly bigger than the actual stamp*
Then just turn the stamp (Visible Image Death's Head Moth)back the right way up and use :D
Again I stamped a few smaller images in the background for depth...
Now to make something with them :D
