Wednesday Stamper Challenge...more blue!

I've had Adirondack Colour Washes in my stash for two years, and simply could NOT find a way to use them to create anything I liked. Then I saw Daria's post on Two Peas and I was SO inspired! So, even though we don't have wonderful classes like that here in Nova Scotia (lol), here's my version of "living vicariously through Daria!" I stamped and clear embossed a Judikins background stamp on glossy white cardstock. Then I sprayed two colours of the colour washes (Lettuce and Stream) on a craft mat, spritzed them with water, and dipped the tag in the wash twice, heat setting after each dip. Then I used Ancient Page Coal Black ink with a Quiet Fire Design Calligraphy Stamp on SU Whisper White cardstock, and layered everything together.

THANKS for the inspiration dear Daria! Thanks so much for visiting me today.
