Papertrey Ink's Stamp-a-faire 2014: Explore Ancient Rome Faux Fresco
Explore Ancient Rome. This is my take on the Faux Fresco technique. I used Crackle Embossing Paste (everywhere I looked seemed to be out of white embossing paste). But I really like the extra texture, though I think it might stick to the stamp a little more than regular white embossing paste. All the stamps come from the Ancient Rome mini kit. I used painters tape on the sentiment and stamped it in two parts then drew and fussy cut the thought bubbles. The cardstock used is Fine Linen for the mat, Enchanted Evening and the cardbase is Canyon Clay. The inks are Ocean Tides for the mosaic, Spring Rain for the laurel behind the urn and Black Soot Distress Ink.
