This is a journal cover I did the other night. I was inking around with Tim Holtz distress inks and this is what I came up with. Very quick and easy. I stamped the main image(Hampton Art Stamps). After that I put a mask of the stamped image over the image I just stamped. Inked with shabby shutters, broken china, little brick red and vintage photo(Tim Holtz distress inks). Stamped the key(Stampland), stamped "in dreams we catch glimses of life larger than our own" (Tim Holtz), then sprayed some glimmer mist(Tattered Angels)denim blue. Removed the mask and that's it, easy, peasy. It took more time to clean up then to do the cover. Good thing I was playing before and after this.

Have to share something my sister would not share on my comments, however she did e-mail me just to say...............EWWWWWWWWW!!!!!! your dirty and grungy.
And to this I say................... YES I AM.
Have a great evening, off to create something a little grungy.
