Every month, BBArtisans team members have the opportunity to participate in a monthly challenge. This month our theme (hosted by Rose of Random Creative) is to use the color combination of turquoise and red in a new piece of art.
I thought I'd take this opportunity to fulfill one of my short-term goals: stamping on ribbon. A good friend gave me some colored ribbons; two of the colors were turquoise and red. Wasn't that fitting!
I wasn't sure if the ink in my stamp pads would stick to the ribbon without smudging. But they both worked well enough. The turquoise is a brand that I hadn't used before by Tsukineko called Versa Magic chalk ink. It's very vivid! The red is a more popular brand called Jim Holtz Distress Ink, which is a dye ink. Both products are acid free.
After the ribbons were stamped, I glued them into my art journal and completed my page. The background is colored with stamp pad inks, watercolors, coptic markers and micron pens. That attractive woman isn't me; just a model.
