A Multi-Tasking Project


This week's challange on Saturday Stampers is to incorporate projects from Gothic Arches (Friends challenge); Mixed Media Monday's button challenge ;Fluffy Fatbottom's Twisted Tuesday's Button Wisdom challenge ; Wednesday Stamper's Diamond challenge; and Theme Thursday's Chalk challenge. To create the "diamond" background, I first inked up a harlequin stamp with white chalk ink and stamped it on glossy cardstock (it's really important that you use glossy cardstock. You want the ink to sit on the surface of the paper a little longer. If you used regular cardstock, it will absorb into the paper too quickly.) Then, I quickly ran a very wet burnet sienna chalk ink pad over the stamped area. Afterwards, I quickly wiped off the burnt sienna ink. The white chalk ink acts as a resist. Isn't it neat? I'm not sure if the sentiment is very clear. My button wisdom is "We remain fond friends because we know when to button it up." Thanks for stopping by!
