This months challenge oven on The Artistic Stampers blog is Anything Goes. I have a decorated canvas board with hearts to share with you all. Please pop over to The Artistic Stampers blog to see what my teammates have created and join in the challenge.
See below for my step by step photos and process.
Using tester pots from the DIY store and a large brush I applied paint across the canvas blending the colours into each other. As this paint is meant for walls it is fast drying and very thick so it will only move so far and you have to continually add to it to get a smooth effect.
Using the same colour paints I applied thin (ish) layers of paint to my glass mat and pressed the stamps into the paint and then stamped directly onto the canvas.
When stamping I build up the layers by overlapping the stamped images.
and the colours
Then I started to add more interest by using colours that gave me more contrast.
I painted separate sheets of card red, pink and yellow and die several different sized hearts from each, I stamped a script over the top of them all.
Then I stitched them all together with black thread before gluing them all to the canvas board. To finish I added text with a black calligraphy pen.
It's my turn to post over on The Artistic Stampers blog today, pop over and take a look at this fun messy card I created. There is still plenty of time to join in this months challenge, I am loving the entries so far.
You can also find me on Instagram here for pictures of all my makes.
A new challenge is starting over on The Artistic Stamper blog. This month theme is Distress and all entries must have stamping on the project somewhere. Pop over and take a look at my teammate's inspirational projects and join in the challenge for your chance to win a prize.
I created a tag for this month challenge using Distress Inks and Oxides along with different stamps.
1) I blended Distress Ink and Oxides over a tag, edged it with a brown ink and stamped over the top with a script stamp.
2) Over the top, I layered up some ripped pieces of card and stamped over all the layered with black archival ink and a butterfly stamp.
3) I scrunched up the first layer and after covering with ink I highlighted the creases and ripped edges with more ink.
4) On the top layer, I tried to keep the colours brighter and just roughened the edges with my scissors before gluing all the layers together I added some washi tape and tissue paper, so there were some different textures on the tag.
