Paper craft project no. 147: You are the best

2014-02-26 OLC You are the best
Earlier tonight, I spent a couple of hours playing with my new supply, the Inktense Blocks by Derwent. These have become a favorite very quickly and I can’t wait to show you other projects I’ve done using these awesome-tastic chunky blocks. I’ve a feeling you’ll see me using them a lot in my videos :o)

New! MOM Subway Art Builders sets from STAMPlorations

Anyway, here’s an A2 one layer mixed media card where I used acrylic paints, Inktense blocks, and dye inks. With an old credit card, I scraped Plaid acrylic paints (Sunny Day, Pink Parfait, and Key Lime) on my card base. I rubbed Inktense blocks (Deep Indigo and Sea Blue) on my butterfly stamp, spritzed a little water to activate the colors then stamped over the paints. After they’ve dried, I inked the same butterfly stamp with Paris Dusk Memento Dew Drop Ink and stamped again, slightly offset. With a wet brush, I flicked a couple of Inktense block colors (Apple Green and Tangerine) over my card to create some spatters. Last, I stamped the sentiment in Tuxedo Black and Lilac Posies (Memento/Tsukineko)– I combined two STAMPlorations stamp sets to create this: “you are” is from the It’s All About You rubber stamp set and “the best” is from one of the 5 new MOM Subway Art Builders sets. (Check out the pre-release sale here.) I finished the card by affixing 3 small pearls.

I based the layout of my card on the current sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch #65. For CASology Week #84, the cue word is “Paint”. At Addicted to Stamps and More, the challenge is “Clean and Simple (CAS)”. It’s Anything Goes with Pearls this week at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.
