Hello and welcome to the first Friday of the month and the start of a new challenge at A Vintage Journey. The fabulous Deb is our host this month and she is asking us to:
PUT YOUR STAMP ON IT
We want to see some stamps on your creations, a minimum of one stamp but the more the merrier! Stamp your backgrounds, fussy cut or die cut some stamped images, add some stamped sentiments; whatever you like as long as it is in one of our preferred vintage, shabby, mixed media, art journalling, industrial or steam pun styles.
I decided to make a set of ATCs from a stamped masterboard along with some small stamped labels and butterflies. I ended up making two ATCs - each uses the same elements but in a different format.
I started off with a piece of cardstock which I had pulled from the Gelli Plate some time ago. I will have used PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Acrylic Paints but no idea what colours!
There wasn't much in the way of added texture other than some flourishes which hadn't really come out. So there was plenty of room to add as much stamping as I wished!
I have used a selection of PaperArtsy stamps - some of them were quite big ones, but I just dabbed them here and there. I have also used brown and black ink and then over stamped some Distress Paint Circles using the top of the bottle.
I then cut my ATCs from this masterboard and decorated them with various embellishments including some PaperArtsy labels and a butterfly. The butterfly was stamped on some of the remaining painted cardstock.
Do hop on over to A Vintage Journey to see what my fellow Creative Guides have created - you will not be disappointed! We all love stamping but all use our stamps in so many different ways.
As always thank you for joining me and I hope you have a fabulous weekend.
