An artsy approach to stamping

The other day I felt a bit artsy and gave in and played with some artsy stuff and made some awesome textured background. I will show you the photo first and then tell you what I used. So be sure to scroll on down..

And here is a close-up on the texture:

I basically placed the stencil over the black cardstock (I used washi tape to secure the stencil). Then I used a scraper and applied the "Ceramic Stucco" paste over the stencil and scraped off the extra. Then I've removed the stencil carefully and let it air dry. Now I am not sure how long it took because I went on with my other chores... But once it was dry, I simple sponged on Bermuda Bay ink. 

Here is what I used:

I absolutely love this stuff and can't wait to use it some more. The texture is very rough and interesting. I got the jar at the "M" craft store in the artist section and used my coupon at check-out to make it a bit more affordable ;-)

The sea horse was stamped in black StazOn and then colored in in Bermuda Bay ink with a little touch of Pacific Point using my Blender Pen. Then I cut it out by hand...

Oh and did you notice my new framelits? I LOVE the set called "Tags & Labels"! They have a smaller distance in-between the different sizes to make layering easier.
