It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about It's a Stitch up! Are you in for a felt project or stitching some paper? Or maybe some faux stitching like me.
This Bo Bunny Stitches stamp set I've got for ages and it's one of my favorite stamps to give interest around the edges of my projects. Of course I had to use it for this challenge.
First I stamped the Time Traveler with Archival Ink and MISTI tool, otherwise I don't get a good result on watercolor paper. Once the ink was completely dry, I've colored him in with a bunch Distress Markers and waterbrush. Between layers, I dried the paper.
After I had finished coloring, it was time to protect my colored Time Traveler and I've used MicroGlaze to seal it. I picked the same colors that I've used for coloring the Time Traveler for the background. It was a big muddy mess. But a bit more blue helped a lot. With a tissue I dabbed away the excess ink and that was a big difference.
I darkened the edges with Distress Crayon Black Soot. I absolutely love this effect. With the Bo Bunny Stitches stamp, Versamark and Pewter Embossing Powder I made a stitched edge, love that it really pops, but not too much.
