Over at Lots to Do, the Challenge this week is scenic route – not sure about the route but it’s definitely scenic, lol.
I was playing with my friend’s Silkies and made a cool background which is perfect for this stamp. I just stamped and embossed the Stampscapes image and the words, then highlighted the rocks and water with white pen. Nice, quick and easy.
Must say here (although I probably shouldn’t…) that I wouldn’t buy Silkies cos I don’t think they’re worth the money. They’re water based pearly paints, which come in a little nail polish like bottle, with a brush. The background was made by putting a few colours on a craft mat, spritzing with water, then brayering. They DO give a lovely shimmer and dry very quickly and I do like the colours but there’s very little in each bottle and I don’t think they’re all that easy to use. Just my humble opinion, lol.
