I was reading Lin Brown's blog the other day (and drooling over some new stencils she'd purchased!) and saw that she'd also bought some PaperBag Studios stamps which I happen to own, but haven't used for some time - but which got the cogs whirring for something, so when I got home from work, I put pen to paper - well, ink to journal page anyway!
I took the balloons from the PaperBag Studios set and stamped them randomly across both pages. I was going to use Salty Ocean distress ink, thinking it would be a tone on tone effect, but it didn't show up as much as I wanted, so I switched to Cobalt archival which is a lovely deep blue (as you'd expect from the name!) .
The sentiment is from Tim Holtz's 'Garment District' set, and stamped on thin white card. I stuck it all every which way so it looks like it's floating amongst the balloons. Finally I flicked some Black Marble Dylusions spray, by tapping the end of the tube, over the page. So, thanks Lin for buying the stamps and reminding me I've got them!!
