This weeks sample for Artistic Outpost uses the fabulous PAPERBOY plate.
I used the background stamp from the PAPERBOY plate to stamp randomly around my background using Distress Ink. I then coloured the background piece with brushed corduroy ink to add to that aged feel and distressed the edges, adding walnut stain for added definition.
Two banners have been added to the top stamped with sentiments from the KUDZU KAFE plate. I also added more background stamping to each banner for a further layer of interest, adding black soot Distress Ink to the edges of each banner.
My focal images have been stamped with black Archival Ink and I have added a couple of splats to add to that aged feel.
I matted and layered my stamped piece onto a piece of black card and then onto a piece of card stamped with the background stamp, more splats, colouring with Distress Inks and distressing the edges with a paper distresser.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
