More bumping - in my journal this time!

Well, this "bumping" technique is certainly addictive!! Couldn't wait till after I'd eaten,I had to start whilst it was in the oven (tuna pasta bake if you're interested). It nearly got burnt...

This is the result.... fresco paints used are rusty rose, inky pool and claret, with snowflake to bump and tone down....
Leandra also told us yesterday (us being her stalkers of Jo Myhill, Gabrielle and I)  that you can stamp trhough the stencil too - I used a Mini Paperartsy stamp - don't think the minis have names, this is some grungy looking little numbers...  I carried the theme through by using the "roll part of the stamp on the page" method.

Made the separate image (Dina Wakley) on some scrap paper painted with rusty rose again.
and a couple of step by steps....
what a mess on the craft sheet!! Now I really DO need some more cut and dry foam...!


Because this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show has an "Anything goes" theme, I am entering thsi there.

Rats. I don't have Rusty Rose and now I NEED it! Properly NEED it! Love what you've done here - completely forgot about stamping though the stencil so I need to go and do that immediately! And there was me thinking I'd got this technique down to a T! Oh - am not a stalker btw - I just don't move very fast!!! ;)
