FSC – Resist

Hi everyone and welcome to a new challenge
at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

This month we ask you to join us with a challenge using the
RESIST technique.
There are many different types of resist that you might enjoy playing with,
including embossing powders, crayons, paint, gesso, gel mediums and more.

My card uses white embossing powder.


I’ve used the Blossom Scroll stamp from Stampendous for my background.
This stamp is 6″ x 6″ and is perfect for an embossed background.


Different shades of blue distress inks
were blended over the top of the white embossing powder.
Any ink left on the EP was wiped off with a slightly damp cloth.


The butterflies are a Rubber Dance stamp called “Butterfly Trio”.
They were simply stamped onto some scrap card
that had been coloured with a contrasting distress ink
and then cut out.

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different takes on this theme. Please pop on over and check out their awesome creativity, be inspired and maybe join in the fun.

Ink Art Designs is our sponsor this month (that’s my Etsy shop) and has a gorgeous stamp to give away to one lucky winner chosen by random org.

We also have a top 3 chosen by the design team and Saturday Spotlights where we showcase inspirational makes. And the icing on the cake is that each month we will be having a guest designer chosen from the entries.

Thank you for looking,
Happy Stamping!

 

FSC Book Page Challenge

Hi everyone and welcome to a new challenge
at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

This month we are asking you to join in with a book page project.  This can be a card, an art journal page with torn book page in the background, or canvas with book page bits on it.

For my inspiration I’ve made a card.

I’ve used the stamp ‘Joy’ from Carabelle Studio along with the splatter stamp in the ‘Somewhere in Time’ set from Visible Image. To give the girl something to sit on, and ground her, I’ve added a little washi tape from Ranger.

The girl has been stamped onto water colour card, fussy cut and 3-D’ed.  With a little bit of cotton behind her (just for fun).

FSC Use A Quote

Hi everyone and welcome to the new challenge at
Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

This month we would love to see you use a quote on your project.
My inspiration is a mixed media card using inks, paints and alcohol markers.


A gelli background came in handy for this card. The stars from the Merry Magpie stamp set from Rubber Dance were stamped straight onto the brayered gelli-plate and gave a fun effect.
When you use your gelli-plate it is great to keep playing and build up a little collection of backgrounds.
Before you know it you’ll have a stash of fun backgrounds for future projects.

The main stamp is one that has been in my collection for some time but hadn’t got around to using.
It is a Phyllis Harris stamp from Unity.
This set comes with words which are used with this girl image.

The clothes and shoes are painted with alcohol markers and some white paint was added to the background to give a cloudy effect. The whiteness of background at this stage was knocked back with the some background stamping using pink archival ink.
Extra stars were added through a Visible Image Stencil using white acyrlic paint.
I had another large star stamp (not sure where it is from though) and decided to stamp it onto some scrap card from the same gelli-plate piece with brown archival ink.

Bugs at FSC

This month it is all about BUGS at FSC!
It is my choice this month for a theme and I thought that bugs might be fun.
You can use butterflies, dragonflies, lady bugs or anything from the insect world.
For my card I chose spiders.


I’ve used distress oxides and stencils to create a creepy background.
Stamped some leaves in different green inks.
Then added a person who has wandered into a spidery web of danger.

This card made me think of a time when I was in the outback and found myself in a spot where the spiders were everywhere! I had to tread carefully and always look up just in case I accidentally had a close encounter with one of these creepy crawlies.

Use Your Inks!

Good morning and welcome to a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
July’s theme has been chosen by Shirley and she wants us to ‘Use Those Inks Anyway You Want’.
 FSC is one of the few stamping challenges around, which is quite special.

For my inspiration I’ve made an Art Journal page.

This journal page is a fun play with distress inks, oxides, stencils and stamps!
Pure fun all the way!!!

I teach Art Journaling in my region and this is one of the fun pages from one of my classes.

This is a close-up of one of the Dina Wakley Scribbly birds that I used on the page.

And this is the other little birdie.
