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:
