You are the Wind beneath my Wings

While I was cleaning my craft room I realized that have SOOO many stamps and I never use them so I have been watching you tube videos and practicing. So when I came across some fun challenges I thought I would try some new stamping techniques that O.C.C. had posted.

I started by stamping my paper with a cloud background cloud stamp. Then I used resist stamping. First I stamped my birdhouse and bird in Versamark then covered with clear embossing power. Then I went over the stamped images using Tim Holtz Distressed Ink Spun Sugar. I went back and wiped off my stamped images with a tissue.
