I really like card sketches and every month at the yahoo group Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps we have a new sketch challenge. Come join in the fun.
I decided to use an old technique called faux leather to create the background. You use masking tape in torn into pieces and then a couple of different dye based inks to colour the tape. The instructions can be found on the Split Coast Stampers web site.
I think the first time I did this technique we used shoe polish to colour the tape.
The Cloisonné Fish stamp is by Michael Strong. This stamp is made in two sizes and this is the smaller version. The sentiment is from a set made by Just Rite stamps.
Thank you for taking a look.
