Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters


 

Good morning everyone!  Lately, I have been experimenting with the "new" (to me) technique - Art/Mixed Media.  It is so much fun to do this on cards!  What is this?  Well, to me it's "freedom stamping" -- get together any mixture of stamping images, and don't forget a few words, or sentiments.  On my sample, I started with a water spritz background. (stamp inks on your acrylic pad careful not to overlap colors too much) - spritz with water, and stamp your cardstock.  Now comes the fun part - just start stamping!  Any images, and you can even use embossing powder on some of them -- what ever you are in the mood for.  If you want, the final stage you can even run it through an embossing folder!  Feel free to make a tag, a bookmark, a card or even an art journal page!!  Whatever strikes your fancy and/or mood! :)

I made a card using most of my stamps and images from Basket Buddies, along with the "main" sentiment from Follow Your Dreams.  I also added a little texture to liven things up.  I opted not to emboss my main image, but in hindsight, I should have.  I think I would of liked it even more. 

Please use keyword STVMONVD3. You can see all the entries  here.  You have until September 18th, 8:00pm to upload your entry.

I hope you try this fun way of stamping - I can't wait to see what you all come up with. Thanks for playing~

This looks hard.....I'll have to think on this before I try it.
This looks like quite an interesting challenge!
Fun challenge Vicki and cool card!!  Love the mixed media look :)
Anything new to me? Or do we have to do the ink ans spritz?
Oh this is so wonderful, Vicki! I may have to make more than one project. I agree - it's so freeing to just mess about with favorite supplies. The cool thing, you can use just a little of what you make, or a whole panel, like you've shown here. Whee!!
LOVE this idea......cool card too Vicki!
I'm telling ya! I love this type of stamping!!   So glad you enjoyed it!
