Valentines Card

I had to try my new stamp in the background
its a lace doily... Love it! I did some stitching
in the right hand corner for the xxx's and buttons
for the ooo's hugs and kisses.. :)


 

Hand Made Stamp

I cut out some fun foam and glued it with glossy accents to
cardboard and more foam. I doubled up on the squares to make a deeper impression.
 
I let dry completely and whalla! a new stamp...

Altered Art

DT Call

Here is a finished shot of my altered project
instructions below.

I started with a 12x12 shadow box that
I wanted to alter for my altered canvas.
I used gesso to seal and color my box as it stared out brown.

I stencilled anything vintage I could find in this case an old
bicycle using a pouncing technique so the paint
did not go under my stencil.

Then I stamped a script image randomly.

 Another veneer piece used for a stencil using Vintage Photo
Distress Ink.
The result 
I decided I was only going to stamp and stencil the edges. 
I think it needs more stamps.
Here is a vintage lady also stamped in Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
And another Vintage stamp.

Then I thought I would do some embossing.
So I juiced up a rose stamp with Versa Mark Ink.
And with Martha Stuart Embossing Powder
I poured it on the stamped rose.
 
And heat embossed it with my heat tool.
Next I decided to distress a DCWV script paper with
Vintage Photo Distress Ink as well. Making tears and rips
along the way to make it look aged.
I decided to use another script page behind the
torn page to fill in the spaces.
Then I placed my altered canvas back in the
box and added some vintage lace trim to match my canvas.

Stamping Technique

 
First, I stamped an image of a cat twice on light and dark cardstock.
I used Stazon Black on the light colored card stock and
Opaque Cotton White on the dark.

Second, I tore the light cardstock toward me, once
from the top of the stamped image and again on the bottom.
 
 
Then placed my top and bottom images on the
dark colored cardstock and matched up the lines.

 I then trimmed the image to a workable size to mat with
light and dark brown cardstock and used my
ATG gun to attach to my base card.
I added lace to embellish and a Spellbinders label die to
display my sentiment with two brads. I also used Glossy Accents
on the eyes of the cat and on the sentiment paw and kitty.
 
 


Layerd Stamping Card

 
I started with a white card base and cut four pieces
to mat at these dimentions:
Then I took all the white layers of cardstock and stacked
them with repositional tape for temporary placement.
I then stamped my sentiment first.
And proceeded to stamp with my main image making
sure the image was placed over all three layers.
Then I took the layers apart and matted them to the
coordinating size of colored card stock. 
 
 
That's it. Embellish or color as desired.
You can see the images look seamless
with a really cool effect.
