Artistic Outpost- Seed Packets Background Shaker Card
Today I am sharing this fun Mixed Media Shaker card on the Artistic Outpost (AO) blog using the new AO Spring 2016 Release stamp Seed Packets Background from Our Daily Bread Designs.
I am linking this card to the Splitcoaststampers’ MIX11 “Frame It” Challenge (see details here and gallery here) along with the WaysTo Use It WT516 “Beads” Challenge.
I hope you have a chance to visit us at the Artistic Outpost blog as well as the Splitcoaststampers galleries – fabulous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Ink the Seed Packets Background stamp with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Color the images with an AquaPainter™ using ink from Cucumber Crush, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, So Saffron Classic Ink Pads and Stampin’ Write Markers.
After the watercolor has dried, apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Distress Vintage Medium over the entire panel and once dried add Ranger® Tim Holtz® Distress Crazing Medium over the panel.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Double Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out the frame from a piece of Basic Black cardstock, add a piece of acetate to the center of the frame (I used a piece of scrap acetate I had saved from some packaging material) and line the frame with double sided self-adhesive dimensional foam.
Lay the frame with the dimensional foam facing up and pour a few green seed beads onto the acetate.
Remove the adhesive from the strips around the frame and adhere the Seed Packets Background panel onto the frame.
Mount the entire shaker panel onto the Whisper White card base and use a Sponge Applicator to apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Tea Dye Distress Ink over the edges to finish off the card.
