Artist at Work

Well I must confess to being a little excited when I was told which stamp set the Creative Expressions DT would be using this month. We were given the fabulous Art Saying set with the instruction to use any other sets we chose! Well that was music to my ears so I broke open more of my Wendy Vecchi stamps and used Supplies for Art and Destination Art stamp sets. I love these stamps as they lend themselves so well to adding dimension by stamping more than one image and layering sections - I hope the phot below shows this. The ink bottle, for example has three layers, the bottle, the label and the 'inks' diamond.
I used Sepia and Jet Black Archival Inks and Vintage Photo Distress Ink and Broken China Distress Stain on kraft card. The silver is Silver Paint Dabber. I made a card ribbon and attached it with some ideaology
Now time for some news! Creative Expressions have a new 'News' section of their website - why not check it out?! Thank you, as always, for stopping by!  As Wendy might say, I hope you feel inspired to... Make Art!
