Always Make A Total Effort
Today I am sharing my weekly card post on the Artistic Outpost (AO) blog – this Mixed Media card was created using the new AO March Release stamps, Grunge Elements and The Golf Club.
I had posted this card as one of the two designs created for the new March release announcement with a promise that details would be shared at a later date (so here are the details:-)).
Add Ranger® Tim Holtz® Distress Stains along with Gelatos® and Leaf Green Brusho® to a piece of watercolor paper, spritz and allow the colors to run, repeat until you have the desired effect.
Dry the panel with the Heat Tool and stamp the images from Grunge Elements (AO) with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink.
Trim the panel and cut on an angle (I used the Splitcoaststampers' SC584 Sketch and MIX155 "Let It Flow" Mix-Ability Challenge for inspiration).
With the Big Shot™ and the largest die from the ODBD Double Stitched Rectangle Dies, cut a stitched panel from Basic Black cardstock, mount onto the Cucumber Crush card base and add the background watercolor panels.
De-static a piece of Basic Black cardstock with the Embossing Buddy®, ink the sentiment from The Golf Club with Versamark™ Ink and stamp onto the prepared cardstock, apply Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
Cut the sentiment panel with the Big Shot™ and the ODBD Double Stitched Rectangle Dies.
Adhere the looped Silver Cord (I used Hot Glue for this step) onto the card front and mount the sentiment over the Silver Cord using dimensional foam to finish off the card.
