WOYWW - 92 Middle Ground through Extremes?

I'm tickled pink I have my idea mostly worked out for the PIF, but no hints :D.

Instead I'll show you one of my favorite things, well actually a couple of favorites, wrapped up in one. First I treated myself to the Tim Holtz On The Edge Townscape die. I didn't have any on the edge plates, but since it is a one-sided die, I just used the regular plates. I was so excited to get started I just cut open the package and used one side to cut. It looked like a mask, so I put it on some scrap cardstock and spritzed away with my New Lettuce (?) Color Wash which I then flipped over to another piece of cardstock with the spritzed side down, and rubbed the spritz to a few sheet of cardstock. Thusly making a negative and positive with one spritz :D.

This was down with just the mask laid over, no adhesive. I get so excited when I can make two things out of one action :D. My personal challenge has been to find the middle ground or gray when I tend to go more black and white as it were.

If you are wondering about WOYWW (What's on your workdesk? Wednesday) hop over to the Stamping Ground and have a lovely gander at lots of crafty goodness. Better yet, join in the fun and show us yours :D.

Oh this worked well. I think you are conspiring against me - I really like this die but so far have managed without it!!

Very clever - I like the print too - wonder if it would work on plain fabric?

Susan Allan said...

It is fun experimenting isn't it?

Love the die and love the lettuce colour, deliciously dark and works so well with the houses.
Have a wonderful day
