More Stamping Backgrounds Fun

I used, as basis, Marion Davis's class on for making the background for this card's stamped panel, with a few variations (of course!). I do wish I could get those silly Ranger color washes to spray evenly. No matter whose bottle I use, somehow the mister always gets clogged, and I get all these spatters. But hey, you have to run with what you have!

The stamp is one of my new ones off the last sheet, and I got the idea for the various strips of paper from Estivalia's blog, {Paper Leisure}. Here, I used strips of yuzen washi from StoneHouse Stamps -- I adore Anne Stone, the owner. She has the most *fabulous* paper EVAH... =) and she has some pretty cool stamps, too! Whenever she sends an order, she also includes all kinds of end scraps from other sheets--that's what I used here--so you're always lusting after something other than what you got. Heh--isn't that always the case?

The fishie is painted with Brilliance reinkers, after being embossed.

  1. I inspired this amazing project? cool :D I've son wanted to get some washi papers from that store, but there's always something else you just gotta have first, doesn't it happen to you?
