Recycle Dream on Card with video tutorial

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/

Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about Recycle style.

With crafting I throw too many things away. Scraps, packaging and things in daily life that I could have used in my projects. This challenge got me thinking to not just throw everything away. But think if I could use it for something in the future. I used a packaging from a Prima Marketing stamp set as the base for my card.

 

My first step was making a background blending Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon and Fossilized Amber Distress Ink together. And because the packaging a bit of a gloss finish the ink work very nicely. Especially the Spritz and Flick method works well with this surface.



To apply contrast and make some texture I chose the Latticework stencil with some Black Soot colored Crackle Paste. To give the crackle more definition I went over it with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink and an Ink Blending Tool. With a white Gelly Roll pen I doodled some effects to the crackle, the Butterflies and the Cork letters. Below the whole proces of making this card:

  2. I love how you used the bubble wrap on your project, Sandra! I've got to give this a try and those Tim Holtz alphanumeric thinlits dies are going on my wish list! Thanks for the inspiration. Cathie <3

  6. What a beautiful card you made with the packaging for the background! It certainly adds another element to it, and works beautifully with the textures you've created, Sannie! Awesome blue crackle and words.

  7. Your dream on is absolutely right on target for me. I dream about having more time to make and be on the computer. It is pretty neat to be able to use some of the stuff we would normally throw in the trash. When I first saw this, I thought for sure it had to be an art journal page - terrific for a card! You sure do know how to put things together!

  9. I admire the bold, expressive colors you used and the added textures. Prima had a great idea to put text on the butterfly wings and you used their stamp so perfectly here. Loved the bubble-wrap stamping (what a useful technique) and Gelly-Roll accents. Thanks for sharing the video, too!
