Craft Stamper Take It Make It Challenge . . . Inspiration

Hello sweet friends, just popping by with some more inspiration for
here`s a quick reminder of the theme -
Technique: Add paint in a random way to an acrylic block, then pull a print from it (as you would if using a Gelli plate!) Use this print as a background for your project, or cut/die cut the print and use it in any other way on your project.
 I had a great time using - 
Dylusions Ink Sprays
and 
a sprinkling of Pan Pastels mixed in
to create my mono print on an old book page.
I am an impatient kind of gal when waiting on things to dry . . . 
who me?
Yes me, lol!
So out came my heat tool and I have to tell you I looove how the modelling Paste kinda blew and rippled making the most gorgeous touchy feel paper . . . but I have to also tell you that the old book page now feels like a fabric, so very soft now.
The only other thing I added to the background was a touch of polka dots, script stamp and my wonky tonky stitching.
I adore this butterfly by
Unity Stamp Co.
Christy Tomlinson - Through the Changes.
I sprayed a little Dylusions ink onto my craft mat,
 then applied it to the stamp with a brush, 
 finishing with a sprinkling of Metallic Pan Pastel on top
 before
 popping another book page on top and pressing down, kinda back to front but found it the best way when stamping with inks.
Next I inked the stamp up with a black Archival ink pad and stamped, it shows up the shadows on the stamp.
A little doodle doo and the letters snipped from more book pages gave me my title.
That`s all from me today but be sure and stop by the
Craft Stampers Blog
for even more inspiration from the team
you will not be disappointed, I promise!

Linking up to my lovely friends with Flair over on the Unity Stamp Co. blog.
