Ink Blending – a2z Scrapbooking April 2017 Challenge

Second Post for Today
If your looking for Rubber Dance Stamp Challenge post, click here

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a a2z Scrapbooking Challenge. The theme this month is Getting To Know You!!

Take a look at my card:

Here’s how I created this card:

For this card I masked off a portion of the card with post-it tape.

Then I used Distress Ink Wild Honey and Broken China and blended them together using the ink blending tool.

After that, I stamp the butterflies from Hero Arts Layering Butterflies stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black Ink, 3 times. Then I stamped the sentiment using the same ink.

Once that is complete, I added small white dots using a gelly roll pen to enhance the butterflies.

Clean and simple design!

Rubber Dance Blog Hop

Hello everyone!!  Welcome to the Rubber Dance Blog Hop!!!  If you arrived here from the fabulous Gail’s blog you are on the right track.  If you arrived here on your own, you will want to start from the beginning at Rubber Dance Blog.

Take a look at my card:

Here’s how I created my card:

  1. Cut the cardstock to 5.5 by 8.5, scored at 5.5.
  2. Using Distress Ink Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade and blend the inks together.  You will get a chalky finish.
  3. Using the Distress Sprayer, spray some water in your hand and drop the water onto the paper.
  4. Use a paper towel to soak up the water, leaving uneven droplets on the ink.
  5. Once the cardstock dries, stamp Rubber Dance Stamps Happy Dancing images onto the card front using Versafine Onxy Ink.
  6. Stamp the sentiment to finish the card off.

Nothing too it!!

Rubber Dance Stamp February 2017 Theme Challenge

Hello everyone!! I’m here today with the Rubber Dance Stamp Theme Challenge!!

The theme is “Lots of Layers”!  All you have to do is create a piece of work that has a lot of layers.

Check out what I created to inspire you:

love-rds

I tried to keep my tag pretty simple since that is more my style, but I also wanted to play around with some mixed media.

Are you asking yourself, where are the layers?  I was hoping that you would ask.

Here you go:

  1. I add gesso on the top of the tag and let it dry.
  2. Then I blended Distressed Ink Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick and Seedless Preserve.
  3. After that, I used Rubber Dance Stamps Round in Circles stamped paired with StazOn Jet Black Ink to stamp the circles.
  4. Then I used the Rubber Dance Stamps Think Again stamp set to stamp the sentiment with the StazOn Ink.
  5.  To finish the tag off, I colored the Crinkle Ribbon with Mustard Seed reinker and added it to the tag.

Thats four layers!!! Yayyy!

What do you think? Please let me know below. I would love to hear from you.

The winner will win five fabulous stamps fromRubber Dance Stamp!! Wait, if the winner used stamps from Rubber Dance Stamp, they will winner another five stamps! That’s a total of 10 stamps!! Wow!!!
