Dusting it Off!

Dusting it Off! by judkajudy
.
I dusted off this 2007 stamp from Hero Arts titled Pattern Flowers in order to enter the challenge at A Blog Named Hero where the challenge is to "dust off" an older stamp and create with it. This stamp, Pattern Flowers,  has been one of my favorite stamps since I bought it in 2007!

I used the technique Cheiron demo'd in her video at ABNH: embossed the image, then used the Distress Markers as watercolor paints. After that had dried, I went over parts of the image with the markers themselves.  I like the soft look that mixing the Distress Markers with water provides.

The pretty gingham trim is from the package of beautiful embelli's sent to me by Sally! As much as I love them, I decided not to hoard them, but enjoy using them! The pp is a digi of Hero Ats patterned paper.

I've had a fun day stamping! Hope you found some time to plaly today! Thanks for stopping by.
