Today I Am Thankful
Today I am sharing an Autumn Inspired Mixed Media card on the Artistic Outpost blog and wanted to share with you as well.
This card features the Artistic Outpost stamp sets, Seed Packets Background , Harvest and Grunge Elements along with the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies (all available at Our Daily Bread Designs).
To create the background for this card, ink the AO Seed Packets Background with black soot distress ink and stamp onto kraft cardstock.
Use a water brush with distress inks to add the distressing and color to the pumpkin as well as the vegetables (I used brushed corduroy along with crushed pumpkin, peeled paint and wild honey distress inks).
Die cut and emboss the background panel with the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies, ink the corner splatter image from AO Grunge Elements with walnut stain distress ink and stamp over all of the edges before applying crazing medium with a palette knife over the entire panel.
Once the crazing medium is dry, layer the panel onto a piece of vanilla cardstock, trim and mount onto the black card base.
Ink the sentiment from AO Harvest with black soot distress stain and stamp onto vanilla cardstock, ink the AO Grunge Elements grid image with walnut stain distress ink, stamp over the sentiment and die cut/emboss the sentiment with the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies.
To finish off the card, mount the sentiment onto black cardstock, trim close to the die cut edge, add the four antique brads to the corners, adhere the looped natural polished hemp twine to the card front (I used hot glue for this step) and mount the sentiment with dimensional foam.
I hope I have inspired you to pull out your Artistic Outpost stamps and create a project of your own this weekend! If so, please share with us on our Artistic Outpost Facebook page- we would love to see your artwork!
Thanks again for stopping by- hugs and I hope you have a wonderful weekend, my friends!
