Hello! Today I am hopping along with Andy Skinner’s amazing Design Team to share projects made with his insanely cool stamps. The latest release, found in the January Stampendous catalog, really inspired me. I especially love the Textures stamp set,which is the main set I used on my card below.
I started out with the “Smoosh Technique” (yup, that’s a technical term) to apply a few colors of Distress Oxide inks to my background paper. I used watercolor paper by Recollections. I applied Fossilized Amber, Wilted Violet, and Worn Lipstick to my craft mat. I sprayed the colors with water, and dipped my paper into it. Once I was satisfied with the results, I heat set the colors with my embossing gun.
I love the combination of Andy’s Textures stamps with the Distress Oxides. It gave such a dreamy look to the background. These stamps are so easy to work with, I look forward to using them often in not only cards, but mixed media pieces as well. To see who else is hopping today, and for more information, please visit the Stampendous Blog. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
