Today I have had a play with the Funky Fossil Designs "Celestial" stamp set which happens to be reduced by £1.50 at the moment, so this is maybe an ideal time to grab a bargain.
I stamped the central image in Versafine Clair "Twilight" ink, then coated the stamped image in Wow! Clear Embossing Powder and then heat set.
I used Antique Linen and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide inks to fill the central stamped image. Using a circle mask, I covered the stamp image. I used the new Tim Holtz "Unchartered Mariner" Distress Oxide ink through the Funky Fossil "Funky Circle Stencil". to create the additional detail around the stamped area. Using the remaining ink on the blending brush to provide a light colour in each corner.
Using a fan shaped paint brush, dipped in water, I then lightly tapped the brush so that droplets formed in the corner areas, dabbing the wet area dry with kitchen roll, this created the mottled look you can see.
Finally, I stamped the sentimen, also part of the "Celestial stamp set" in Versafine Clair "Twilight" ink.
