Ready-Steady-STAMP Challenge 7



Challenge 7 on Ready-Steady-STAMP is to use Autumn, Brown, cream and ochre, Staples, Hessian and Distress Inks on background. I used the nearest colours I could to make my fat page and used a PSX leaf stamp and Hero Arts alphabet stamps for the word Autumn. This was right up my street as I love doing nature type work! I enjoyed doing my background as I haven't done this technique for a while - I smudged Distress Inks onto a non stick mat and spritzed with water then blotted my card onto it several times to accumulate the ink effect.
