The Stamp Man - Your Favourite Technique

Today the lovely Angela is challenging us to make something using our favourite technique. Now if you are anything like me I took one look at that and thought where do I start? I love so many techniques. Shall I write them all out and pull one out of a hat? No not really. But I decided that although I use blend and flick and masking alot with DIs and sprays I decided to go with a favourite that I don't use so often and that is T!m's Rusted Enamel technique.

So here is my Stamp Man DT piece, I hope you like it. If you want to see how to do this technique in more detail it is in the Compendium of Curiosities Volume 1.

Supplies -
Archival Inks - Coffee, Rose Madder, Olive

The Rusted Enamel background.

We look forward to you joining is at The Stamp Man and if you do you will be in with a chance of winning a £10 voucher to the On-line store.

Have a wonderful Friday and a great weekend.

This is really lovely Brenda. The butterfly is gorgeous and I love the fabulous background, the colour is really pretty. I must find/make time to revisit my first Compendium book and see which other techniques I've completely forgotten about because I'd forgotten this one. Thank you for joining in the Snazzy DT Blog challenge and good luck.

The tag is so beautiful, dear Brenda! I think very original is the idea with the pen as a butterfly body. Very creative my dear!
