Theme Thursday "road trip" challenge


On Dans blog he recently did a tutorial on watermarking stamping. So I used a diamond stamp watermark for the background but its hard to see unless close up. Instead of dropping water on to distress inks you put water on your well defined stamp and it leaves a subtle background. I have stamped destination, travel and bike and car images in various coloured inks. Accidentally I sort of stamped over part of the girls arms so added some prima flowers..it needed another layer anyway!!
