ATC swap I joined, hosted by Darkroom Door. It features stamps by Darkroom Door, and an embossed resist technique combined with a Tombow marker background in shades of red. I matted it on black and added machine stitching. It was an extra one for the swap, so it went in my "things to save" box and I pulled it out yesterday, added another mat in a different red, as well as an accent strip in yet another red. I find this is a good way to "match" colours to a very colourful focal image. By using a few different shades together, they are united, rather than looking like they don't match. All these went on a confetti fleck card base that I stamped with a Hero Arts geometrical background stamp using Soft Granite Shadow ink. I took a class last week at Heather's and the teacher got me hooked on light grey backgrounds. Thanks for the inspiration, Meg! The final finishing touch was a few dots here and there of black Enamel Accents (Ranger). I will also note that all pieces except the ATC are edged in Memories Art Print Brown.
Thanks for stopping by! I am hoping to make a few more dents in my box of treasures this afternoon. I hope you get some stamping time too.
