Hi all! These two cards took me about 3 days to make because I kept having to stop and do other things. I would do a step or two and then come back to it the next day. I got them done, but it sure was slow.
I was doing a project with acrylic paint and had some left over. I didn't want to wash it down the sink so I decided to stamp with it. I had a piece of Saharah Sand card stock by Stampin Up. I cut it in half and made two cards out of it. I stamped with the paint and this Hero Arts background stamp twice.
On this first one I let it dry and then used some light brown Distress Ink to stamp the Friend Definition stamp in the background. The paint resisted the ink and it shows up, only faintly on the paper. I added the Basic Grey patterned paper and the stamped greeting. Then I used the Distress Ink to add some shading all around the edges. I wanted to use some white gel pen to add some dashes. I decided that I have done this a lot, so I tried some little dots instead.
Lastly I added the fun buttons, string and gems. I love how it looks so bright and happy, but a little shabby too.
This second card uses almost the same steps. I didn't use the Definition background stamp. I just stamped with the paint and the Fabric Design background stamp. I added the patterned paper and a greeting from Stampin Up. I added the white gel pen dots all around the outer edge. I like how it is just a little bit different with the dots instead of dashes for faux stitching.
Lastly I added the fun string, flower and gems.
I have been loving bright colors lately. I love how the paint and the back ground stamps are so bold.
I have created these for the Stamp It Cards Week challenge in the Moxie Fab world. Stop by their blog and check out all the stamping.
Thanks for stopping by . I hope my next projects won't take so long! :-)
