Grungy Monday 08


OK, so I have calmed down!

This is what I made with the single Darkroom Door stamped Daffodil using distress ink in the background that I misted and dabbed and stuck to the tag and decorated with Sassafras trimmings that came off the edge of one of their sheets of paper. If you are wondering what I am on about, read further, I had to blog about this technique before I had even created something with it!



OH MY WORD! Excuse my shouting, but I LOVE THIS technique!

In case you think I am off my head, (well some people think I should be certified, but that is another matter all together...) go over to Linda's blog (the esteemed hostess of Grungy Monday) where you will get the link to Tims blog back in 2008 where he gives very clear instructions on how to do this water colour technique with stamps...

I am so excited about it that I have to show you what I have done so far and I have not even made anything yet. I just want you to go and play with this technique, it is BRILLIANT! T!m totally ROCKS! Thanks to Linda who enlightened me on this blog link, I am now bouncing round my studio, trying to think of what I can make with all these Darkroom Door flowers...

  4. This is lovely Bella. Your Daffodil looks great. I love the effect you can get using DI's with this technique, it's so soft and translucent.

  10. Bella, this is SO gorgeous! Your flowers are just stunning, and such a perfect way to showcase the GM08 technique. You could frame the samples and hang them anywhere, and the finished tag, with those lovely trimming, is spectacular!

  13. I can see why you are excited with the technique ... You carried it off beautifully! Great work!
    I just wanted to say ... You don't need Wendy stamps to join in at Simon Says Stamp and show this week ... We are playing with Wendy's style ... Any stamp will do ;0)
