I'm having sooooo much fun with the whole mixed media thing at the moment, and when I saw yesterday that the new challenge over at Visible Image was to use your favourite VI stamp, I knew exactly what I wanted to do!
Now, to be completely fair, I can't say I have a real favourite yet, as it's not been long since I discovered them, so my collection is still somewhat meagre, but my most-used is easily the Grunge Harlequin stamp. It's just so perfect for mixed media and distressy kind of projects and though I only bought it this summer, it has already become my most used stamp of all that I own!
But VI have so many gorgeous stamps, and the order I'd placed arrived yesterday too, which meant I also got to use the gorgeous Butterfly INKognito on my canvas.
Speaking of which, I guess I'd better stop waffling and show it to you? lol.
I had a lot of fun making this, though I can definitely tell you that more colours of archival ink are now somewhere at the top of my "must have" list, as try as I might, I couldn't get any other type of ink to cooperate, so both the butterfly and the harlequin elements ended up being stamped in black (the only one I have at the moment!)
Still, I'm so pleased with the finished piece! it's only A6 size, so I may be attaching it to the front of my Visible Image stamps mini ring binder...
The metal sentiment strip is from Making Memories, and has been sitting in my stash for nearly two years! I was always reluctant to use it and wanted to save it for a special project. And this is it!
Unfortunately the fact that I sprayed the entire thing with my glimmer mist refuses to show up in the pictures, so you'll just have to take my word for it that it shimmers beautifully in person, lol.
I'd also love to enter the following challenges:
Altered Eclectics - November challenge
Polkadoodles - Recycle it (the corrugated card was from a cardboard box)
All craft challenge - October/November
Hope you're all having a fabulous weekend. I know I am.
