The Stampsmith Challenge
The Stampsmith Challenge is a new one for me, but I have long been familiar with their stamps because they have photo style stamps - one of my favorite types. I have been wanting to participate in one of their challenges and made this project for the blue and brown theme. My image is of the Romanov daughters (the "From Russia with Love" plate), stamped on glossy cardstock, cut out and layered onto a piece of Russian book text - I have absolutely no idea what it says! I also stamped a book cover stamp (Tim Holtz-Stampers Anonymous) onto chipboard and cut out a window and added corrugated cardstock underneath it for more depth. The lace piece started out white, but fit much better once dyed with faded jeans and chipped sapphire DI and given touches with a pale gold leafing pen.
