Rather Be on My Farm
I hope all of you are having a great start to the weekend so far!!
Today it is my turn to highlight a card on the Artistic Outpost blog and I created another monochromatic Mixed Media card using Seed Packets Background along with Harvest and Grunge Elements from the 2016 Spring Release at ArtisticOutpost.
I decided to incorporate the Mojo Monday #456 Sketch Challenge into the design (love the Mojo Monday sketches!) and if you have not already visited the Artistic Outpost blog (or the Mojo Monday challenge site yet), I hope you will do so- fabulous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of paper from the Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Vintage Ephemera 6x6 Paper Collection with the retired Honeycomb Embossing Folder, trim the panel and mount onto a piece of taupe cardstock, trim again to mount onto the dark brown card front.
Ink the Seed Packets Background with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, lightly spritz with water and stamp onto a piece of taupe cardstock.
Use a Sponge Dauber to apply Tea Dye Distress Ink to “age” the paper.
Enhance the shadows with a chocolate water-based marker and use a water brush to blend the color.
Ink the splatter image from Grunge Elements with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and stamp over the panel.
Use the Big Shot™ with the ODBD Double Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out the main panel and the ODBD Double Stitched Circle Dies to cut the central circle.
Mount the panel onto a piece of dark brown cardstock, trim and mount onto taupe cardstock (sponging the edges with the TH Tea Dye Distress Ink).
Add the die cut/stamped circle piece in the center with dimensional foam and mount the antique brass spiral clip with the knotted twine to the upper left hand corner of the panel.
Adhere the entire panel to the card front and add the antique brass brads to the lower right hand corner before mounting the card front onto the white card base.
De-static a scrap piece of the ODBD Vintage Ephemera Paper with an Embossing Buddy®, stamp the sentiment from Harvest using Versamark™ ink onto the prepared paper and apply white embossing powder (heat set with the Heat Tool).
Use scissors to hand-trim the banner points, adhere the knotted twine to the sentiment banner before mounting onto the card front with dimensional foam.
