Another fortnight has gone by and it's time for another challenge at the Craft-Room. Nikki has chosen the theme for the latest challenge and she wants you all to ink your work with rubber/clear stamps, Digi Stamps are not allowed for this challenge.
Our sponsor for this challenge is Rogue Redhead Designs.
I decided to do a canvas for my DT piece.
A couple of weeks ago I watched a demonstration by Helen Chilton at the Craft Barn, she was using bleach to colour her stamping, so I thought I'd give it a go.
I coloured a piece of white card with Kaleidacolor ink by swiping the ink pad onto my mat and spraying it with water. I used PaperArtsy stamps and black Stazon for my images and then I painted the images with thick bleach to take out the colour. The bleach takes away the colour but doesn't affect the Stazon. I used a red and blue coloured pencil to lightly colour part of the boat and the mans cloths. I ripped the edges and coloured them with rusty hinge Distress ink. I embellished my piece with a couple of cogs and chain before adhering it to a canvas that I'd coloured with faded jeans and rusty hinge Distress stain. I coloured a Tando Creative compass with a black acrylic dabber and some silver wax and then adhered it to the canvas.
The rest of the Design Team have done some wonderful samples so please visit the Craft-Room Challenge blog and take a look.
