Grungy Monday and Simon Says Stamp and Show. Let me explain.
At Grungy Monday Linda gave us a technique challenge from a 2008 blog posting by Tim Holtz. Here Tim introduced the technique where he colors a fragment using alcohol inks and then stamps on it getting this cool, magical effect. Since this is 2012, I upgraded the technique a little since Tim has made advancements in his line since then. Instead of a fragment, I used the acrylic atc blank. Tim specifically said that it wasn't a good idea to use writing to stamp with because it would come out backwards. Well, with Tim's reflections stamps, that problem is solved. If you look really closely, you will see rows of numbers running at a slant behind the butterflies. Also based on this year's 12 tags, I used his metal sheet as a backing instead of glossy paper. I really like the cool effect this technique had on the atc.
At Simon Says Stamp and Show the challenge is anything but a card. There is no cardstock at all on this atc. Because of the subject matter on the atc, it also meets the challenge at Fashionable Stamping which is butterflies or bugs.
