The theme this week is birds and the technique is using Distress Paint. Luckily I do have a set of bird stamps and I did last year buy some Distress Paint which I've been playing with. Although the one color had not been opened up yet. I love Claudine's cards but decided to not do so many things because of the bird images. I also decided to use the word stamps that came with the bird set.
Here are Claudine cards:
I really had fun making my cards and here they are.
On the one card Claudine used black embossing paste. I figured since I had played with using gesso and moulding paste with a stencil on this card previously to use this one. I daubed two colors of Distress Paint onto my mat and misted the paint with water. Then I went ahead and misted my card. Then I dragged my card through the paint on the mat. I took a paper towel to dab paint off the moulding paste shapes. I stamped my bird and cut it out. Then I used glaze pens for the eye and the beak. I used a colored pencil for the nest. I took wrapping tissue paper and daubed Distress paint on it and then spritzed it with water. I then took my heat gun to dry it which crinkled the paper up. I stamped on the tissue paper with black ink and then tore the word out and applied it to the card using Zig two way glue.
I can't wait to see what next week's challenge is. Have you stamped on plastic? Have you used things around the house or in your craft room for stamps?
I'm not sure what I am going to do next but first my craft room is in need of a good cleaning and organizing. I think the cleaning/organizing fairy fell into a snow drift somewhere. Either that or she is trying to make her way through the slush. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
