Week 2 and stamping with stains. I started out using the marbled stains technique to create the background, layering up the colours until I achieved something I thought would work. This technique has been on my to do list since I first watched the video, but I've just been brave enough to give it a go! Why did I wait?! It's so much fun!
Stage two was stamping with picket fence distress stain and then archival ink.
Stage three distress inking and colouring the piggy bank with distress markers.
Some more stain for a quick pop of colour.
