In 33Lp Records Stamp heat and Cut

SinCity Stamps DT Call Submission

It's that time again! Sin City Stamps Formally Sin City Scraps
is having a design team call and here are my submissions!
For this demonstration I will be using:
An Old 33 Record
Distress Inks
StazOn Inks
Perfect Pearls
Perfect Medium Pen
Heat Gun
E6000 glue
Hand Dyed/Scrunched Seam Binding
 Today I would like to demonstrate a stamping technique on old 33 records!
I picked up an old record from my local Sally Anne to smash into pieces. It cost me a quarter
I started with a tag and distressed it with Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Black Soot and Fired Brick.
I also stamped my tag with a flower background stamp in Broken China Distress Ink.
 With my broken pieces of vinyl record I first tried to heat the
 vinyl before stamping with StazOn Inks,
thinking maybe I could get an embossed image.
 I succeeded when firmly pressing into the hot vinyl.
To cut my image out of the vinyl record I had to heat and reheat.
The cool thing about the vinyl was you could reheat
it many times and the image would not distort.
Next I decided to  stamp on a piece of the record that was not heated with StazOn Inks.
Here I chose to use White StazOn Ink as it showed up best on the black vinyl.

 To cut this image out I used a template of a small tag
and traced around my stamped image.
Next I heated it up to cut my small tag. Each time you cut,
the vinyl warps and when reheated it regains its original
flat surface or you could manipulate it as I did with the dragon fly below.
I decided to color parts of my images with
Perfect Medium and Perfect Pearls.
Here I used purple, blue patina and heirloom gold.
 I used E-6000 to adhere my vinyl to the paper and to itself.
I tied seam binding to attach both tags to each other.
Here are my final images from different angles trying to get
the camera to show the ridges of the music engraved in the vinyl.

I hope you enjoyed this demonstration and encourage you to try it out yourself!

In Terri Sproul Pearl Mixers

Note To Self 12x14 Canvas

Hello! today I would like to share with you a project I call "Note to Self" as a reminder to be more thoughtful.
For todays project I used:
Terri Sproul Pearl Mixers
Terri Sproul "Journal Stamps"
Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer
Acrylic Paint
Golden Molding Paste
Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Toothbrush for flicking paint
Hand Colored Images
Copic Markers 
Printed Words from the computer

 What started out as a blank canvas quickly added up with layers of Acrylic paint, Stencils and Stamps.
I painted the top of the canvas with blue and purple paint and added yellow ochre in the middle and green at the bottom.
Next I stenciled in some trees, dots, and a doily. Now I was ready to stamp! I used my new Terri Sproul Stamps from the Journal set and with my fingers instead of a block pressed my  stamps into place.

I used a toothbrush to flick some mixers onto the
canvas to represent a magical presence.
Next I made a stencil with my Cricut.
I just cut out some blackout flowers out of cardstock and took
out some molding paste to give it some texture.

I decided to color the flowers of molding paste
with Terri Sproul Pearl Mixers and 3D Crystal Lacquer.
I couldn't quite get my green leaves just right so
I colored them in with Copics.

 Everywhere I put the Pearl Mixers the canvas glistens.
I drew a girls face and colored her in with copic markers.
I found a butterfly and cut it in half to use as wings.

Then I cut a piece of cardstock into a triangle for
her dress and colored her arms in.
Next I printed out some words I should be reminding
 myself of in a distressed typeset font and distressed
the edges with Tim Holtz broken china distress inks.

Opps almost forgot to color her lips!.. see I do need these notes to self!
I hope you enjoyed my short tutorial and don't forget if you use coupon code Crystal06 you will receive 20% off your entire order HERE at checkout!
