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 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.

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.

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.

I have an easy-going newsletter that goes out whenever I have new stock on the way, or just in, with some occasional stamping tips and specials just for the people in the newsletter group.  There is a link on the right side-bar if you would like to join.

Happy Stamping!

Seaside at FSC

It is time for a new challenge at
Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

This month we would love to see your makes based around the Seaside.

Living by the sea, this theme is one that means a lot to me.
So many things happen by the sea, but where I live, fishing for recreation or sport is a huge pass-time.

This card is made for a friends birthday who is turning 60 soon. Fishing is one of his great passions.
This fitted beautifully in a 5″ x 7″ frame.  So it is a card and gift in one.

Here are some more close-ups of the piece.


Can you see the fish that got away? lol


And another one … I’ve used alcohol inks on glossy card and this shows the beautiful bubbling effect that happened.

Floral at FSC

This month we have a beautiful floral theme for you!
You can show us either a single flower or a bouquet. The choice is up to you.
I hope you find time to join in the challenge.

For my inspiration I’ve made an Art Journal page.
My house is on the market at the moment so the words on this page are about practicing patience!

The stamps used are Entomology and Flower Garden from Stampers Anonymous.
The stencils, mini cell theory and harlequin, are from TWC and the paints are Dina Wakley.

The technique is one that I’ve developed by bouncing off another technique.  It is super fun and easy to do!
How is that for a teaser lol.
There will be more about it in future posts. I’m a little bit addicted to it at the moment so I’m sure you will see me use it a few times.
