October 2011 Project Bonus***RRR***
By: Marion Davis, Artistic Guide
Finished Size: 4”x4.5”
This stamp has no ID on it. I got in in a Parchment Craft kit.
Adirondack Aqua (Ranger)
Awesome Aqua medium (WorldWin)
White embossing powder
Water brush or wet paint brush
Craft sheet or scrap of acrylic
White pigment pen (Inksentials)
I sometimes make card fronts and keep them until I decide what to do with them. This one happened when I was teaching heat embossing in a class right after I finished my monochromatic card, which was published on October 1. I grabbed a scrap of the Awesome Aqua card stock and began a demo for the class. As it took shape, I decided I liked this enough to keep it and do something with it. To date I have no idea what that will be. Here's how I did it.
- Stamp with Versamark
- Sprinkle with white embossing powder, shake off the excess and heat. You really should use an antistatic bag first, but once again I forgot.
- Take the Aqua ink pad and smoosh it on your craft sheet, clear mount, or any piece of acetate that you recycled from the trash.
- Use the water brush or wet paintbrush to pick up the color and paint in areas balancing around the medallion. Add a second layer of color to get more intensity or do the same with a darker shade.
- Color some areas with the Inksentials white pigment pen.
- That is the point at which I stopped. Sometimes less is more. I just thought I'd share!
