Have Faith

Hello! Today I am hopping along with Andy Skinner's amazing Design Team to share projects made with his insanely cool stamps. The latest release, found in the January Stampendous catalog, really inspired me. I especially love the Textures stamp set,which is the main set I used on my card below.

I started out with the "Smoosh Technique" (yup, that's a technical term) to apply a few colors of Distress Oxide inks to my background paper. I used watercolor paper by Recollections. I applied Fossilized Amber, Wilted Violet, and Worn Lipstick to my craft mat. I sprayed the colors with water, and dipped my paper into it. Once I was satisfied with the results, I heat set the colors with my embossing gun.

Then, I started to use the stamps from the Textures set by inking them with Wilted Violet, Peacock Feathers, and Frayed Burlap. I needed a focal point, so I added the "Have Faith" from Andy's Unexplained stamp set. I stamped it with VersaMark Ink (after I made sure my background was completely dry), and then I used Clear Bark embossing powder on top. It gave just enough texture and shine to the card. Next, I added 3 layers of lovely chiffon ribbon from Creative Impressions to the left side. I only tacked down the left sides of the ribbons so that the right sides would lift off of the card. I then wrapped the ribbons around my background to give it a more finished look. My car base was created with Bo Bunny Vintage Double Dot paper. 

I love the combination of Andy's Textures stamps with the Distress Oxides. It gave such a dreamy look to the background. These stamps are so easy to work with, I look forward to using them often in not only cards, but mixed media pieces as well. To see who else is hopping today, and for more information, please visit the Stampendous Blog. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Love the look of the Distress oxide inks with the Andy Skinner Textures stamps. The ribbons on the side really add a nice touch and add to the dreamy effect of the card.
