Technique Tuesday -"Enjoy the Journey" Card using Adirodack Paint Dabbers

I have been dying to try stamping with the Adirondack Paint Dabbers on my stamps so for TECHNIQUE TUESDAY that is just we will do. If I must say for myself I think my card turned out pretty amazing. NOW.... if you don't have paint dabbers just use your acrylic paints that you have on hand they work also But you will have to use a dabber to dab the paint onto the stamp. MAKE SURE to wash your stamps as soon as you are finished because you don't want to have a build up of paint. SO FOR MY CARD.... I used Tim Holtz Visual Artistry " The Journey" and Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Mixed Media Stamp sets, along with Red Pepper and Lettuce Paint Dabbers. NOW.... to achieve the look have a moist paper towel handy and once you stamp the Red Pepper Dots back ground on swipe over it with the paper towel in both directions. Allow it to dry before you stamp the Lettuce and Chicken Wire Background stamp on.
Once it is stamped add the Cross Hatched Stamp and Sentiment stamp with your Black Memento ink or another black dye ink. I stamped and fussy cut my plane on Graphic 45 The Three R's paper and my Graphic 45 School Days paper is distressed with the Tim Holtz distresser. I placed my plane on the card with pop dots as well as the metal dog tag. I added ribbon to the top of my border strip. I hope you will try paint with your stamps and I would love to hear if you have tried this technique. Hugs Pammejo
