The VivaLasVegaStamps May challenge has a cool moodboard, from which I chose to be inspired by weird, unique, epiphanies, big ideas, rats, black, grey, white, sprays, splatters, grunge and numbers. Besides VLVS I'm posting for the WOW challenge (anything with embossing goes) and the Craft Stamper Take it Make it challenge (anything with stamping goes).

I played with a product I've had for ages called Perfect Resist. I saw it recently in a web shop and remembered I have it somewhere and have never used it. After some rummaging, I found the bottle and stamped the scribbly star onto coated cardstock. I guess it's some sort of wax, the medium was runny and I used a foam piece to dab it on the stamp. I added grey Brusho powder, spritzed with water and when the card was dry I stamped with the VLVS numbers stamp.

To make my focal point, I stamped the Banksy rat onto white paper with Versamark and heat embossed with black. The chain was too short, so I continued it with an embossing pen.

I fussy cut the rat image, stamped the sentiment and mounted the smaller pieces with low foam tape that can be cut under narrow areas (like the chain). The background panel got dimension from a piece of corrugated cardboard.

I stamped the star on an envelope with grey and black Distress inks and a spritz of water. Here goes!

Since I really liked how this turned out, I had to do a couple more with other sentiments... strange how different the colours look, they are actually the same!
