My computer was running very, v-e-r-y slowly the other day (Comcast gives “high speed internet” a whole new meaning. “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”) Anyway, instead of sitting there, tapping my foot and squirming in my chair – like that’s going to make it run faster, right? – I decided to play a little.
I stamped one of the images from Serene Silhouettes several times on Naturals Ivory card stock. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink, but if you don’t want a blurry look, use Jet Black StazOn. I used an Aqua Painter and classic stampin’ pads to add color to the background.
I’m really happy with the way this turned out. The images did fade a bit, but it adds to the “aged” look. StazOn will give a more clear image; you can even heat emboss them for even more “pop.” The colors I used for the background are in the table below. I didn’t use any green; that’s just “smear” from the black. Pretty cool, huh?
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
