Paradise Card Using Adirodack Paint Dabbers

On Jan 21st I will be the Guest Artist on Graphic 45 here is a sneak peak of one of my projects that I will be sharing. First, I would like to share how to use Adirondack Paint Dabbers as a resist when stamping. I made my Graphic 45 Paradise Card using this very technique for the background. The Tim Holtz Visual Artistry "The Journey" stamp was perfect to work with because the Sandal Paint Dabber worked easily with the image. The biggest thing to remember is to wash your stamp as soon as you get done painting or it will eventually distort your image from the build up of paint. NOW stamp the image on white background paper, once it is dry you will take your Tim Holtz Aged Mahogany, Tea Dye, Frayed Burlap and Wild Plum inks. Using your blending tool and foam pads ink over the image in a swirling motion. Once this is done take a moist paper towel and whip lightly over the top to expose the image.
I also love to do this with my papers, get them wet and scrunch them up. NOW the fun part is to lay them on your craft sheet and fold, wrinkle and twist them into the shape you want. How fun does this ruffle look for my card. Make sure that it is dried completely before placing it on your card or your adhesive might not stick.

The American Crafts eyelet ribbon was stained with the Broken China Stain, once dry then ink with the Frayed Burlap Distress Ink to give it a rustic look. I added one of the die cuts from the Graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue to the front of the card, along with a couple of Baubles, Memo Pins, and Metal Findings. I hope you like the technique of stamping with paint dabbers.  Thank you for stopping by and remember to stop by Graphic 45 tomorrow.   Hugs Pammejo
