Circle Journal - Slim Pages

I've told you before about the "circle journal" that travels between 7 stampers. Each stamper has a month to create an entry for the journal and pass it to the next lady. July was my month and I created this SLIM PAGE (I think that's what it's called - 2x4 piece of art).

My page is really 2.25x4, but it was a pre-cut piece of card stock I had gotten from Stampin Up! I also ordered the small glassine envelopes that held the "tag". This is a "Tim" technique of stamping the image with a white dabber (or acrylic paint) and then sponging color over it. A damp towel removes the ink and returns the "whiteness" of the stamped image.

The leaf punch on the glassine envelop is alcohol ink background and a Martha punch!!

Stamps: Stampers Anonymous URBAN CHIC; Inkadinkado LEAVES GALORE
Paper: White
Ink: Archival Black & Distress Ink
Accessories: rhinestone, alcohol inks, sponges, Martha Stewart punch, glassine envelope, paint dabber

  4. Deb, that is an interesting technique and it looks so beautiful. I like the green and orange together. It looks really fresh.

  5. thank you for sharing this technique :)

  6. Gorgeous, my friend -- can't wait to see it in real life! The white embossing is so striking against that sponged color; I really need to try this technique more often. And the glassine bag is such a beautiful finishing detail!!

  7. Very nice! Thanks for the helpful info! :)


  8. Very cool Deb! You are always trying cool techniques...I would like to try this sometime! I am wondering if it's hard to get the paint off the stamp....
