Over on the PaperArtsy blog the current challenge is "Baked Textures"
I have thoroughly enjoyed following the designer ideas and have loved them all.
I have played with Seth Apter's Baked Textures before, but when Alison Bomber used them to press her stamps into, I had to have a play.
I took a standard sized playing card and gessoed away the background and glued some sepia tissue which has letters and numbers on it.
I glued some musical notes across the middle and a Paper Doll and aged them with Tim Holtz Distress Collage Medium in Vintage.
I rubbed an embossing pad along the edges of the card and dipped it into Seth's Patina Oxide and heat embossed.
Using Alison Bomber's stamp set, EAB03, I stamped into reheated powders with Distress ink Pad Picket fence.
The sentiment that I chose was "Without music, life would be a mistake."
I finished with a little extra stamping randomly in Black Archival Ink.
So, I am entering this into the PaperArtsy challenge.
