Just Playing Around

Hello.  Welcome.  Just wanted to play and see where it took me.  Journey or Destination?  Both were fun.

I had this Material Background stamp from The Artistic Stamper that I hadn't used 

I grabbed a scrap of card that I had cleaned off some pale acrylic paint on and I stamped using blue dye ink. 

Then I decided to emboss with Do-Crafts Time triboss folder and highlight the embossing with white pigment ink.  Glad I used my finger cos the blue wasn't quite dry and I ended up with a creamy blue, which is quite attractive.  In the real the light effects from the background stamp are really striking.

Then I grabbed this industrial style filmstrip stamp from PaperArtsy ID04 and stamped it on vellum with black archival.  May add a sentiment later, but then again may not.........

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
