Artistic Outpost- Rather Be on My Farm

Hi Friends! 

Today I am sharing this easy Mixed Media card with an Emboss Resist technique on the Artistic Outpost Blog and wanted to share it with all of you as well.

This card uses the Artistic Outpost (AO) stamp sets- Seed Packets Background, Harvest and Grunge Elements (all available from Our Daily Bread Designs).

I am also linking this card to the Alphabet Challenge "R for Recipe" (Sentiment, Stamp, Embossing) along with the Splitcoaststampers' Try A New Technique TLC573 "Revisiting Emboss Resist" Challenge (from 02/16/16)-  I love the fact that the SCS Challenges do not end :-)  

If you have not had a chance to visit the Artistic Outpost Blog yet, I encourage you to do so- great inspiration from all of my Design Team sisters!

To create this card:

De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the AO Seed Packets Backgroundimage with embossing ink, stamp onto the prepared white cardstock, apply white embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.

Once the powder has cooled, use water base markers to color the images and wipe off the excess ink with a paper towel.

Once you are satisfied with the color, ink the large splatter stamp from the AO Grunge Elements stamp set with vintage photo distress ink, stamp over the embossed panel to add distressing and wipe off the excess.

Trim the panel, mount onto the espresso cardstock, trim again and mount onto the suede card base.

Ink the sentiment from the AO Harvest stamp set with clear embossing powder, stamp onto a scrap piece of prepared white cardstock and emboss with espresso embossing powder.

Trim the embossed sentiment to size, mount onto espresso cardstock and add to the card front with dimensional foam.

Add the polished hemp twine strands and bow to finish off the card.

What a fun card to design and I hope I have inspired you to create something this weekend!  Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- hugs to all of you!
