I combined the Essential By Ellen’s “Thankful” blooms and “Lovely” stamp sets using Rock Candy Crackle Paint and Distress Ink to texturize these gorgeous fall leaves. So they popped, I used the My Favorite Things Flog Die, which allows the card to stand up to further display these blooms.
I hope you’ll join us at A Blog Named Hero for our September “Texture” Card Challenge! See you there!
It’s the fourth Wednesday of the Month and time for The House That Stamps Built sketch challenge. You have until Tuesday, October 4th to enter for a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate at Repeat Impressions.
Here’s the Sketch:
For my card I’ve stamped Repeat Impressions Round Pumpkin 2318-G and Boo 2316-G for a sweet Halloween scene. My spiderwebs are flocked using a rub on from my stash. I applied glossy accents to my round pumpkin and embossed a circle for him to sit on. The flag die is from My Favorite Things.
Hey there fellow Junkies!!
Kathy, The Crafty Nurse here today with, yes another project featuring September Release, “Birches #S686” for my inspiration today. What can I say. I just LOVED this stamp! Today I wanted to share how I used some Art Anthology dimensional paints to create texture and vibrant color using this awesome stamp.
I began by stamping “Birches #S686” with Archival Jet Black Ink using my Misti tool so that I could get a nice dark background. Don’t forget to take out the padding in your Misti when using these cushioned stamps. I then laid down some Hero Arts Die inks in Butter Bar, Pumpkin Spice and Rust using the Faux Paint Swatch technique (but only using 1/2 of the tape) on the right of each tree. I then broke out my Art Anthology Dimensional Paints in Kenyan Copper, Pumpkin Spice, Vegas Gold, and Terracotta swiping them over the branches. The dimension of these paints is fabulous and really looks like tree bark.
I’m really excited for you to see the October Technique Junkies Release in a few days, but until then, keep inking!
