Studio Calico; Crop Challenge Stamped Title with Jen

I finished this first day of school layout for Alexis album and will enter it in the Studio Calico Crop Challenge 2017; Stamped Title with Jen.

 I pulled out three Stampin Up Ink colors that matched the photo of Alexis on her first day of 2nd grade.

Lucky Limeade, Pacific Point, and Primrose Petals.
 Here I am giving the smoosh your ink pad on wax paper and spraying with water.
 I did not quite like that technique, I think I need more practice.

I went with the traditional packaging and ink with water mist.
 Here is the Primrose Petals ink on the was paper and it just did not move as freely.
 Again the packaging with a cheap bottle with water.
 I addded the blue.
 Its blurry but I am just seeing if I have enough color.
 I did not use water color paper, I used 110 pound white card stock from Micheal's.

So I am using red line tape, a strong double sided tape, and trying to keep close the edge to ensure it lays flat.
 Using some retired My Favorite Things stamps sets and my Fiskars Stamp Press.
 Versa Fine Black Onyx ink.
AND crap I did not stamp well.
 AND re inking and attempting stamping on top because sometimes it works,

AND nope.
 But the page was easy and fast to recreate.
Some foam on the back.
All done, I made sure to press evenly every where and hold the stamp press done for a bit and got it PERFECT the second time.

 Close up, I added a tag with a stamped roller date from Amy Tangerine.

I added some Target Dollar Spot ABC ribbon to two corners of the photo.
The second page is definitly lighter and less blended but it works and I am happy and Alexis loved it, she said it was perfect for a Second Grader.
