Thinking of You

Hello and Happy Father’s Day!

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend.

I thought I’d play along with this week’s Moxie Fab’s Tuesday Trigger: Vintage Vagabond.

I thought it was a unusual color scheme in the sense that they are not my immediate go-to colors.  And I thought it was a chance to use stamps that were in need of some inking.  Here is my take:

SUPPLIES  Stamps (All Penny Black)  Diamond Pattern (40-169); Sweet Melody (40-195); Sentimental (30-176); Flower Festival (30-095)  Inks:  Versamark Black Onyx (Tsukineko); Watermelon Pigment Archival Ink (Ranger); Black Dye Ink (Hero Arts); Distress Inks (Tim Holtz/Ranger); Delicata Pingment Ink (Tsukineko); Perfect Pearls Heirloom Gold Mist Other:  Gesso (Golden); Sequins, Black Floss; Corner Rounder (WeRMemory Keepers)

SUPPLIES Stamps (All Penny Black) Allover Patter (40-109); Sweet Melody (40-195); Sentimental (30-176); Flower Festival (30-095) Inks: Versamark Black Onyx (Tsukineko); Watermelon Pigment Adirondack Ink (Ranger); Black Dye Ink (Hero Arts); Distress Inks (Tim Holtz/Ranger); Delicata Pingment Ink (Tsukineko);  Other: Gesso (Golden); Clear Embossing Powder (American Crafts); Sequins, Black Floss; Corner Rounder (WeRMemory Keepers); Tim Holtz Sanding Grip (Ranger)

I’ve wanted to try to add gesso into my array of stamping techniques.  I’ve been admiring the works of my fellow DT gals – Elizabeth, Alexandra & Jill – so I HAD to try!  On a white card panel, I stamped & embossed the background stamp Allover Pattern.  I then painted gesso over the panel.  Once dried, I added various yellow shades of Distress Ink (Antique Linen, Scattered Straw & Old Paper).  I thought the embossed image was too muted so I used sand paper to remove some of the gesso off the image.  Finally, I brushed Delicata gold ink and Black Soot Distress ink on the edges.

On a small piece of white CS, I stamped a dragonfly image from the clear set, Flower Festival.  I then stamped & embossed, over the dragonfly, the cage image from the cling set, Sweet Melody, using Adirondack Watermelon pigment ink.  The image was then fussy cut.

I adhered the cage with dimensional foam on the gesso’d background card panel. I added black floss and a few sequins as well.  The card panel was adhered on kraft CS with additional sequins and a sentiment from the clear set, Sentimental.  Finally, I added more Delicata gold ink on the edges of the card base.

Thanks for looking and have a great week!
