I dug out some old stamps over the weekend that I haven't used in quite a long time...over two years maybe??? Anyhow, Tuesday Taggers challenge was to "get messy".
So I got out a piece of K & Co vintage script paper. On it I sponged Teal ink over a Tim Holtz Flourish mini-mask on opposite corners, stamped a french script stamp in SU Creamy Caramel in the middle; tore/distressed the edges of the paper and sponged with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distressed ink. I also sponged Teal ink on the coupon, and the TH Tea Dye ink on the embossed Eiffel Tower, and edges of the cream C/S layers.
The vintage ladies are stamped with Stazon Timber Brown on acetate, and coloured behind with SU Taken with Teal and SU Creamy Caramel Marker. The brown scroll corners are a Sizzix Sizzlets die, and the tag is by Spellbinders,wrapped with copper sheer ribbon and popped up by foam tape.
I'm not sure if I'm happy with the result, but it was good to "give some love" to my old stash of stamps. I didn't photograph my messy hands, but they were quite teal on the end of the fingertips, along with brown smudges that looked like a cigarette smoker (which I'm not!) LOL
