The Most Important Shot- The Golf Club and Grunge Elements

Hi Friends!

Today I am sharing my weekly card post on the Artistic Outpost (AO) blog – and this Mixed Media card was created using the new AO Spring 2016 Release stamps, Grunge Elements and The Golf Club.

FYI- I am also linking this card to the Splitcoaststampers’ MIX36 “Anything Goes” Challenge as well as the F4A238“Good Sport” Challenge.

 I hope you have a chance to visit us at the Artistic Outpost blog as well as the other challenge galleries – wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

De-static a piece of Basic Black cardstock with the Embossing Buddy®, stamp the sentiment from The Golf Club with Versamark™ ink onto the prepared cardstock, heat emboss with Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder and once the embossing powder has cooled, trim and set aside.

For the background panel, add Ranger® Tim Holtz® Distress Stains (Mowed Lawn, Squeezed Lemonade) to a craft mat, lay a piece of watercolor paper face down into the ink, lift from the mat and spritz with water.

Lightly dry the panel with the Heat Tool, stamp the various Grunge Elements images with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Tea Dye Distress Ink to “age” the paper.

Close-Up of Grunge Elements Background
 Use a 1 ¼” Square Punch to punch out the entire background and mount onto 1 ⅜” squares of Basic Black cardstock.

Adhere the layered background squares onto the Whisper White card base and add the stamped advertising images from The Golf Club.

Apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Distress Crazing Medium over the entire panel and set aside to dry (you can speed up the drying process carefully with the Heat Tool but I have found that the medium crazes better when allowed to air dry).

Ink the woman golfer image from The Golf Club with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink,  stamp onto Whisper White cardstock and apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Tea Dye Distress Ink over the image (again, to “age” the paper).

To finish off the card, fussy-cut out the golfer and use dimenstional foam to adhere her to the card front along with the heat embossed sentiment.
