Theme Thursday - Birds
My stamp club is thinking about doing a Skinny swap, so I used the Theme Thursday challenge to make a sample to show everyone. I did a back to it, thinking I could submit it to the new Simply Skinnies challenge, but the theme there is AIR travel, not just travel, duh. Guess I need to read things better! Oh well, I got to play around and it was fun.
Both pages use the peeled paper technique, but each goes a different direction after that. For the birds I added Shabby Shutters and Worn Lipstick Distress ink and gessoed over that. For the Venezia piece I did a lot of sanding, a bit of gesso, and inked it with Brushed Corduroy, Spiced Marmalade, and Fired Brick Distress ink.
Both the Bird stamps and Venezia stamps are from Oxford Impressions. Don't forget, you still have time to enter your artwork for the Design Team search!
