Welcome to my weekly post for Artistic Outpost. Today I am using the
fabulous Seed Packets Background stamp and the Harvest stamp set. As I
am a keen gardener, these are a favourite of mine at the moment.
cut a piece of white card 4.5" x 6.5" and then applied removable tape
around all the edges of the card, leaving me a panel in the centre to
stamp and decorate. I added a piece of book page to the central panel.
coloured the central panel with Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo Distress
Inks. I applied the inks directly to a non-stick craft sheet, applied
water to the panel with a paintbrush and then used a wet paintbrush to
apply Peeled Paint Distress Ink first and then Vintage Photo; blending
as I moved around and then dried with a heat tool.
then stamped the Seed Packets Background image onto the coloured
background using Black Archival Ink. I then applied a good thick coat of
DecoArt Crackle Glaze and allowed to dry completely. DecoArt Raw Umber
Antiquing Cream was applied to accentuate the cracks and then I added
Matte Medium over the top to protect. I stamped the sentiment from the
Harvest stamp set onto white card using Fern Green Archival Ink,
colouring the edges with Peeled Paint Distress Ink and then added to the
coloured two plastic plant labels with Citrus Alcohol Ink and then
stamped them with some of the text from the Seed Packets Background
stamp. I added a brad to attach them together and then adhered to the
card along with some appropriate wording from the Harvest stamp set.
added stamping to the inside of my card; applying Fern Green and
touches of Black Archival to part of the imagery. I then removed the
removable tape from around the edges of my card, applied Vintage Photo
Distress Ink to the edges and added splatters of Peeled Paint Distress
