Hi, it's Liesbeth here again for the 3rd time as a PaperArtsy Guest Designer! Today I'd like to show you how I made this card using just one stamp: the very beautiful collage stamp from LPC030
To create the background, I applied drops of Fresco Finish Paints - Blood Orange, Beach Hut, Yellow Submarine, Pea Coat and Hey Pesto onto the craft sheet. Theý're all translucent, that results in a wonderful effect with water in the next step.
I sprayed a generous amount of water onto the paint and pressed two big pieces of Smoothy White Stamping Card (I used an A4 cut in half) I used the same paint 2 times.
I dried the papers well with my heat gun and stamped the big collage stamp onto both papers by using Archival Jet Black Ink.
I cut out the images about 1 mm inside the dotted lines. The reason I stamped and cut two times is to have a large choice, I chose the most beautiful images and the ones who mix the best together.
Onto a seperate piece of Smoothy paper I stamped the collage stamp once again and cut even edges.
I picked the best 16 stamped images and sponged the edges with some black ink to create some depth.
I glued the pieces onto the card, on their own spot.
To finish the card, I also cut out the stripe and the half circle (out of the painted background) at the left side and glued them down. I matted the card onto black, yellow and green cardstock.
Tomorrow I'll be back with another project, a canvas, with the same background technique, using the Fresco Finish Paints. Hope you will join me then!
