So The Challenge Begins! Our first challenge is to create a project using the technique found on page 66 of Compendium of Curiosities Vol. 2. This technique is all about creating your own custom foam stamps. I wanted my stamped images to almost blend into the background so the stamps on the tag are second generation. I kind of like the way they turned out!
I also used a couple of other techniques I've learned from Tim - the background of my tag uses his blended spritz & flick technique and the butterflies were created using his ghosting technique.
