The sentiments were stamped with black ink. The background was stamped with a brick stamp and Watering Can ink, holding the stamp in my hand instead of mounting it on an acrylic block. It gives a random impression and also makes it easier to avoid stamping too much on the sentiments. I used two stencils by Ronda Palazzari for the arrows and the black dots and lines, together with Watering Can and Jet Black ink. Gears were die cut from dictionary paper, inked with Pumice Stone and placed under the scenic images. 'Amsterdam' was also cut out from dictionary paper.
I hope you will join us this month, stamping any scene.
