I've made another collage on a corrugated cardboard base for this week's Compendium of Curiosities Vol.2 Challenge sponsored by Simon Says Stamp. The technique this time is blended stains found on page 45 of Tim's book. I used it on my background paper, which was first stamped with white acrylic paint to give a fun resist, on another piece of background paper created with different colors and then stamped with butterflies and cut out, and finally on the piece of seam binding ribbon. I felt a need for some softer vintage colors when I got the stains out to play. I've been enjoying my bright colors, but it still is nice to turn to the softer ones now and again.
