I am showcasing the newly released stamp set, Vintage Fashion from Artistic Outpost.
have opted for a vintage feel to this piece decorating the background
with Vintage Photo Distress Ink; applying the ink directly to a
non-stick craft sheet and then spritzing with water and mopping up the
beads of ink with the card and then drying with a heat tool. I then
dabbed the card back into the remaining ink and dried with a heat tool
to add layers of colour.
applied DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Carbon Black to the lid from one of
my containers and pressed the inked lid onto my background, repeating
three times and then dried with a heat tool. Each circle was then
painted with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Titanium White and once again
dried with a heat tool and I then coloured each circle with Gelatos,
blending the colours with my finger. Imagery from the Vintage Fashion
stamp set was then stamped into each of the circles using Black Archival
Ink and then dried with a heat tool to prevent any smudging. I stamped a
piece of scrap card with the background stamp using Ground Espresso
Distress Ink and then stamped the bodice over the text using Black
Archival Ink; I love how the text is visible over the bodice! I also
included a piece of burlap ribbon behind for added texture.
also used the background stamp from the Vintage Fashion stamp set to
add random stamping, using Vintage Photo Distress Ink for a tone on tone
effect. Random machine stitching has also been added for a further
layer of interest.
layers of stamping have been added to the top corner, once again using
the background stamp, this time stamping once with Vintage Photo
Distress Ink and then a second time with Ground Espresso Ink; both
layers of stamping clearly visible. I love adding layers to my designs!
I also stamped the inside of my card with the bodice imagery, using Black Archival Ink to echo the design on the front.
