You were born to fly – Stamplorations Stencil Sunday

Hello there lovelies, it is again Stencil Sunday time! For today I´ve created a fun project to share with you. It is something that I discovered when cleaning my stencils recently. I did the cleaning process on my work surface and when wiping the stencil clean with a baby wipe, I noticed that the residue ink it left a nice wet pattern onto my working surface. So that is how the „what if“ thought started…

So this time when I had an inked stencil that I wanted to clean, I simply placed it on top of a piece of scrap paper. Voilá! The idea was born. I know it is nothing very fance, but I liked the idea of using all the residue ink this way. I even did a short video for you to watch. Here is tag that resulted from this idea:
I used a piece of old yellow scrap paper and a stencil that had a layer of red ink on it. In this picture you can see that the stencil pattern on the background is quite light, that is because the baby wipe only takes so much ink from the surface and transfers it onto the background.

Above are some close-up photos of the tag and the background. I´ve decorated the tag with stamps and some washi tape. That way it can be used as a bookmark too, since it is not very bulky. 

And finally, here is the video on how I created the tag. I hope you enjoy it and the idea!!

Happy crafting,

ATC in a pocket – STAMPlorations

Hello, time for another STAMPlorations mixed media tutorial! While organizing my stash a cards & pockets product by Canvas Corp Brands cought my eye. I immeditely thought of an interactive Artist Trading Card project that I wanted to create.

Here is how I created the project:

1. Take the kraft paper pocket and the ARTplorations „Some Birds“ stencil. Apply black waterproof ink thru the stencil onto the surface to create a row of birds starting to fly.

2. Next take the card inside the pocket (if you don´t have the exact same pocket, use a small kraft envelope for this purpose) and use a light orange and bright yellow spray ink tone and ink the background in those colors.

3. Take a leftover piece/random piece of paper that goes with the color sheme and apply black ink thru the „Some Birds“ stencil here and there. Then use various sized circle punches and punch circles (with the bird images on them).

4. Take a piece of old book paper and the ARTplorations „Hearts all Over“ stencil. Apply red waterproof ink onto the paper thru the stencil.

5. Wrip the edge of the paper and adhere the piece onto the left side of the misted card. Next assembly the punched circles onto the ATC. Glue down and cut residue/overlapping parts away with scirssors.

6. Attach a light blue mini clothespin on top of the card. That makes it easier to pull the card out of the pocket. Apply white texture spray onto the ATC surface and let air dry.

7. Stamp sentiments from the STAMPlorations „Trendy Birds 2“ clear stamp set with black ink onto old book paper. The one with the „you can fly“ text will be adhered onto the pocket and the „spread your wings“ sentiment goes to the ATC.

8. Outline the stamped sentiments with black paint pen.

9. Finally, outline the black birds on the pocket with a white paint pen to create more contrast.

Here is also a start-to-finish video about the creating process:

I hope you get inspired to get your product out and play!!! Have fun!
