Hello blogland. Shanna here to inspire you all with some Viva goodness.
I found inspiration from DeeDee's art journal page she recently did and I wanted to give it a go.
I played with a new stamp.
I decided to play with some Distress Inks and I went ahead and took some pictures as I created. So grab a cup of something and following along with this quick tutorial.
I smooshed some the new 2015 color Abandoned Coral all over the page.
Sprinkled some water on it.
Then I pulled out a tag and the tree stamp Leafless Trees in Field (19719). I used three colors of the Distress Ink to give the tag an ombre effect.
Of course I add a sentiment via Tim Holtz stickers after doing a smidgen more stamping using the stamp Color Wheel with Lines (19338) and Torn Paper (19341).
Here are some close ups. I am bummed that I ended up with black ink smudged above the tree, but I loved the sentiment and was glad to add it.
Again I was just so inspired and loved how simple and fun this page turned out to be.
