Artistic Outpost- Harvest with Seed Packets and Grunge Elements
Today I am sharing this Mixed Media card on the Artistic Outpost (AO) blog using the new AO Spring 2016 Release stamps, Harvest, Seed Packets Background and Grunge Elements.
I am linking this card to the Splitcoaststampers’ MIX1 “Yin Yang” Challenge- see details here and gallery here (the very first Mix-Ability Challenge from January 2013- thankfully, there is no time limit with the SCS Challenges :-)).
I hope you have a chance to visit us at the Artistic Outpost blog as well as the Splitcoaststampers challenge gallery – fabulous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
De-static a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock with the Embossing Buddy®, stamp the sentiment from Harvest with Versamark™ ink onto the prepared cardstock and heat emboss with Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder.
Once the embossing powder has cooled, ink the Grunge Elements splatter stamp with Ranger® Tim Holtz® Vintage Photo Distress Ink and stamp over the sentiment.
Trim the sentiment panel, mount onto Basic Black cardstock, trim once more and set aside.
For the background panel, ink the Seed Packets Background stamp with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto Crumb Cake cardstock.
Tear the edges by hand and distress the paper using a Sponge Dauber with Ranger® Tim Holtz® Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Mount the background panel onto a piece of distressed Basic Black cardstock and add the stenciling using a honeycomb stencil with Crackle Texture Paste.
Once the paste has dried, apply Tim Holtz® Distress Collage Crazing Medium over the background and set aside to dry.
Once the background has dried, add the 1 ¼” Black Grosgrain Ribbon on a diagonal and adhere the strips of Burlap Ribbon in the center (the glue will be hidden by the focal image).
Mount the entire panel onto the Whisper White card base and lightly sponge Ranger® Tim Holtz® Tea Dye Distress Ink around the edges to age the white card base.
Stamp the young farmer with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto Crumb Cake cardstock and use the Faber-Castell® White Pitt Pen Marker to add highlights to the image.
Trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock and apply Tim Holtz® Distress Collage Crazing Medium over the entire image.
To finish off the card, mount the focal image panel along with the sentiment using dimensional foam.
