It’s the fourth Wednesday of the Month and time for The House That Stamps Built sketch challenge. You have until Tuesday, June 30th to enter for a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate at Repeat Impressions.
Here’s the Sketch:
For my card today I stamped Repeat Impressions “Rainbow Trout 2909-H with Archival ink and colored him Tim Holtz Distress Markers so I could color directly on the stamp and get some color gradients. I don’t know about you but woodgrain and burlap always remind me of fishing and masculine cards. I distressed the burlap and cut out the fish with Lawn Fawn’s stitched rectangle die. I layered some green ribbon over the burlap ribbon for extra color.
I hope you’ll join us at The House That Stamps Built, you may be our next winner!
Oh, and don’t forget to get your discount code from my blogs sidebar when you shop at Repeat Impressions Stamps.
Hey Junkies! It’s the Crafty Nurse back with a little inspiration post for you today featuring more of the June release stamps from Technique Junkies.
Today I’ve got a great summer card for you using the Gel Medium Resist Technique found on the Sensational Stencil CD.
I began by watercoloring the “Seahorse” stamp using distress inks. To create the background, I applied gel medium through my stencil and allowed to dry. My color was added using Lindy’s Stamp Gang Sprays in gold, brown and blues. The gel medium picks up some of the spray colors which I think looks great. You’ll find more details and other options in the Sensational Stencils CD for this technique. The starfish is cut out from the “Tide Pool Starfish” stamp and the tag is an Avery Elle die.
Here’s a close-up of the gel medium.
I hope you’ll find some time this week to play with your Technique Junkie stamps. Don’t forget to stop by the TJ store and see all the fun new product Pat is carrying in addition to stamps.
See you again soon,
The Crafty Nurse
