Good morning everyone. This is Astrid here with my very first post for the Artistic Stamper. I am very honoured to be part of the team and look forward to share some of my creations using The Artistic Stampers wonderful line of stamps.
For my first project I decided to create a little wall hanging;
I started by cutting a piece of 4 x 6 Kraft card. In the centre I sloshed on a thick layer of the Terra Sahara and stamped the wetted Chicken Wire Background stamp into it to add lots of texture to my project. I love how the background stamps lend themselves so well to this kind of technique. I let the Terra dry overnight and the next day I coloured it with Black Paint Dabber and when that was dry rubbed some Viva Inka Gold lightly over it to give it some sheen.Music Background Stamp in Archival Coffee on some smooth white card stock and spunched some Antique Linen and Vintage Photo distress ink over it to give it an aged look. I tore a rough edge, edged it with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and glued it on either side of the central panel. I also adhered some lace from my stash with Claudine Helmutt Matte Medium
Time and Keys stamp set in Archival Black on thick white cardstock, and sponged some Antique Linen and Vintage photo around them.
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Locket Keys and glued that to the hanger.
Link Chain to hang it by with a couple of jump-rings
