My friend Jeanne hosted a fun Mix-Ability challenge on SplitCoastStampers earlier this month, and I never shared my project with you! The idea behind the Mix-Ability Challenge is to make mixed media simple and approachable, and to let you experiment using things you already have. Each Friday a new challenge is hosted, but there is no time limit, so you can participate whenever you'd like on each challenge.
The challenge Jeanne posted was MIX76 Finger Painting, and I kind of regressed to my childhood when I created this card. I quite literally inked up my thumb and fingers and stamped them onto my card stock. Then with a fine line drawing pen added character details to the prints and sketched in some bits of grass. Oh yes, yippeee, yahooo, this was certainly fun!
Visit the SplitCoastStampers Mix-Ability Challenge forum to find out more about the weekly challenges -- the challenges are very fun, very do-able, and I hope you decide to join us!
I recently purchased a Cosmo Cricket papercrafting kit, and one of the items in the kit was this wicked cute "campy" themed cling mount stamp set. Lucky for one of you, since I already own this stamp set, I thought I'd do a little give-away!
Comment on this post as to why YOU would like to receive this stamp set from me. I will use random generator to select one person's comment, and that one person will receive this stamp set from me.... along with a few other non-disclosed goodies. *grin* I will select the name at 6:00pm Central US time, Tuesday July 22nd.
I recently purchased a new stamp set from Art Impressions, which features these two knee-slappin' laughing ladies and several cute sentiments. The set seemed like a must-have, considering all the funny girls in my life! I think this set is going to see a lot of ink. *grin*
I stamped the image of the ladies in black Memento ink on cream card stock and colored them with ShinHan Touch Twin markers. The cute designer paper is from the Cosmo Cricket Tea for Two 6x6 pad.
I created a sentiment spot using a label die from My Favorite Things. Once everything was colored, I lightly inked the edges of all layers using Antique Linen Distress Ink. I added a cute mother of pearl button and a twine bow for decoration.
A new challenge is being shared today on the Impression Obsession Blog, and I hope you join the fun! The challenge is Nautical/Beach. Pull out your creativity, and join us! For this week's challenge, I chose to create a card a bit more on the rugged side. Roped Ship is stamped on kraft card stock and colored with Touch Twin markers. I stamped Beauty Text on the card base, in Distress Ink, purposely making the stamp impression less than perfect. I inked the edges of the card base and the stamped image. Pretty quick and easy!
