This week's sketch at Splitcoaststameprs is up! Diane has created this beautiful layout for the SC670 challenge. There are so many different ways to go with this sketch but I have been experimenting with the galaxy technique this past week so I decided to create a Christmas sky.
I taped mixed media paper to a wooden cutting board so it would not bend and buckle once I added water. After I painted water on the entire piece, I stamped Distress inks, Picked Raspberry, Seedless, Preserves and Blueprint Sketch on a kraft mat then I picked up the ink with a paintbrush. I dried the paper with a heat tool and repeated painting until I was satisfied with the look. To finish off my winter sky, I sponged black on the upper portion of the sky and splattered with white ink.
The sentiment is Star of Wonder from Verve. It might be a retired set as I couldn't locate it in the shop but Verve stamps are gorgeous so check them out!
I hope you will join us at Splitcoaststampers where every day a new challenge awaits, a stamping challenge that is!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
