I’m using images from our Huck Finn stamp set today-
I created this simple and pretty quick, masculine card that can be used for any occasion.
I started by doing all of my stamping on all of the surfaces I was using–Tissue Paper, mixed-media paper and this background panel of decorative paper in the Patriotic collection from ODBD. I lightly sanded the surface, then stamped the steamboat and Huck Finn images onto the surface with Jet Black Archival, attached to another panel of black card stock then roughed up the edges with my paper distresser.
I did a few dry brushes of DAM white and black gessos, then a light brushing of DAM Texture Sand Paste. When the TSP was dry, I gave it a brushing of Salty Ocean & Vintage Photo DSs to lend a bit of water and earth element to the card.
The quote was stamped onto tissue paper and heat embossed with white EP. I carefully fussy cut it and adhered to the surface of the card with matte Decou-Page. I also added a horizon line of stamped tissue paper and jute twine then ran the panel through my sewing machine to add the stitched border.
This is the image I stamped onto mixed-media paper. I water colored it with Distress Markers and my water brush, fussy cut and attached to the surface of the card with foam squares and then I attached the Typed Token with a jump ring through the knot of the jute twine.
I attached the panel to a red card base and gave the entire surface a spritzing of Ground Espresso DM with my air art tool. Ta-Daaa!! This was pretty quick and easy and it’s mainly because the images are just so darn awesome!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Don’t forget to stop by my AO Design Teammies blogs and see the fun they created–
Until next time–Stay Artsy Fartsy!!
