Lately, I've been craving the feel of paper and touchable "ephemera" between my fingers and so I haven't been doing so much digital work. I actually have been on an ATC binge this week. Now that the postal strike is over, I can get all my "on hold" swaps up and out. It's so nice to go to the mailbox again and find treasures there.
Yes! Already! And they only went back to work yesterday! Life is good!
Having said all that, I haven't posted any of my
Digital Whisper 100 Themes work in quite some time. So here you go:
and 5. Universe
That's it for today.

Distress Inks used were Barn Door, Dusty Concord, Mustard Seed and Shabby Shutters. The bird stamp is Tim Holtz and I'm sorry, I don't know who made the owl stamp, but I LOVE it! The rest are from my "Autumn" bin and I'll bet I found them at a Loonie Store (our version of a Dollar Store) somewhere.
OK, I have to respond to the comments about the oven rack, which never even occurred to me that it would be worthy of comment. I paint stuff or spray stuff and put them on the wire racks to drip dry. I though everyone did that. Apparently not. Just another example of my non-conformist nature, I guess. You mean to say they're for BAKING? well, who knew? tee hee
I borrowed this stamp from a friend and if I had half a brain, I would have written down the company that makes it, cus I really like it.
(humming "If I Only Had a Brain" from the Wizard of Oz.)
Then I covered a tag with flashing tape and put a little Distress Crackle Paint in Vintage Photo on it. When it was dry, I edged it with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The stamp of course has Distress Inks on it,
in Dusty Concord, Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, Tumbled Glass
and Stickles and Glossy Accents are added for blingishness.
The reinforcer and ephemera are from Mr. Holtz himself.
The fibers are from my stash.
Linda has challenged us to use Distress Ink in a project, Artist's Choice on how we do it-how easy is that? There are some really breathtaking samples on her website and you can see lots of talent showcased for this week's challenge (not to mention the previous 9 weeks)
The birdhouse (which will need a crane (hah!) to right it and get it back in the tree where it belongs) is by Dezinaworld and the tree (with an unknown brush overtop is by Tangie Baxter. The rest, I can't tell you, cus they've been on my hard drive for what seems like forever.
