Rusty Bloom

Hi there,

I tried something new today: Distress Inks on Photo Paper. I got the idea from a YouTube Short by Ranger. So I created this rusty, vintage card for the Karten-Kunst Blog.

  • add color to a panel of photo paper with Distress Ink (Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo) using a brayer
  • run the panel through your Big Shot in an embossing folder
  • add Distress Ink Walnut Stain to the raised areas
  • add some Distress Oxide Spray Salvaged Patina
  • use the Karten-Kunst Card Designer A6 die set to cut the panel apart
  • stamp the sentiment from the Karten-Kunst Weise Worte für Freunde with white pigment ink and heat-emboss it with Distress Embossing Glaze Salvaged Patina
  • cut the Karten-Kunst Carissa Bloom from dark brown cardstock and add it to the layout
  • add some splatters with the Distress Oxide Spray Salvaged Patina

I hope you got inspired.

Hello Sunshine

Hi there,

for the rest of June you will see three projects that I created using the lovely Impronte d'Autore Baby Chick stamp set. I thought it would be fun to show you this little series for Mennys Bastelshop:

  • stamp one of the adorable chicks from the Impronte d'Autore Baby Chick set with Gina K. Designs Obsidian
  • color the image with Spectrum Noir Triblend Markers, add extra shading with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils and highlights with a white gel pen
  • create a background with the help of the My Favorite Things Wonky Stitched Rectangles, the Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine set and Brilliance Sunflower Yellow
  • add five glittery yellow hearts cut using the Create a Smile Hearts die set

See you next week.
