I found a piece of chipboard on the shelf - yep, just plain 'ole chip. Painted a coat of Gesso from Dina's new line and let it dry (which is VERY quick - I like that).
This whole project is really fast and random. What you think may be really important - like where the stamp is placed - really isn't. It's just about building the layers to create the texture. You might notice I didn't even use a stamp block, I just rolled it on.
You will need to let the ink dry before the next step (or use a heat tool like me).
Don't think too much. In fact, if you can limit yourself to 2-3 minutes to add the paint, it will force you to make more intuitive choices.
Knowing when to stop is part of the process!
Set aside to dry.
Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste/palette knife and the Bubble stencil. This stuff is like butter!
Tumbled Glass Distress Stain and Tarnished Brass Distress Paint.
I pounced the Distress Stain over the dots until the stain was puddling, then pounced a bit of the Tarnished Brass over the top. I dried the mix with the heat tool and then wiped up the remaining liquid with a paper towel.
I put some Gesso onto a palette knife (yes, I know that usually goes underneath the paint) and ran it down the surface.
I know, really random, right?
Loving the final result.
Do you notice you can barely see the tissue and the stamping layer? But what you can see is important in the layering process.
Hope you have a happy day! Now go create some layers!
