GC57: Wings Meets Faux Dominos

I just got my new Technique Junkies newsletter and was delighted by the Faux Domino technique contributed by Beth Norman. I used Gingersnap Creations' newest Chestnut Theme Challenge - Wings - as my inspiration, I grabbed one of my favorite Lost Coast stamps, this completely gorgeous fairy!

To make my faux dominos not stark white, I stamped some distress ink onto a craft sheet and misted the ink with a bit of water. I stamped the fairy onto glossy cardstock and then pressed it into the watered down distress ink, sopping up the excess with a baby wipe. It gave her a soft greenish tone. I decided to pick up on that color with my designer paper and create contrast with black. I really like the end result!
