Somewhere Someone Is Sleeping

Hello.  Welcome.  A couple of weekends ago I joined the Sin City Stamps Fan Group on fb and was lucky to win a couple of stamps.  They arrived today and Mr Mojo said 'we can do something with those'. In fact, Mr Mojo had 5 ideas for these two small rubber stamps.  His first idea crashed and burned, but this one worked quite well......

The two Sin City stamps I won were Circles Trail and Small Distressed Arrow Symbol.

Maybe it's lucky I'm a simple girl, but these look full of potential to me.  Obviously I have used the circles stamp LOL.  

Everyone seems obsessed with perfect stamping, but sometimes the imperfections can make it more interesting.  I lightly inked the stamp with black Archival ink.  Because this is a solid stamp lightly inking allows the texture of the ink pad to show in the stamped image.  I also used hammered card so in some places the texture of the card shows through the stamped image.  I repeatedly stamped to cover the card and then used a white gel pen to draw random lines.  I cut the panel with the large and medium Stamplorations Double Crazy Stitched rectangle dies, inking all the cut edges and then mounting on a black base card.  Then I die cut the words using Stamplorations word dies.  Pleased with this.  Stay tuned for more fun with these two little rubber beauties.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
