Whimsical ATC’s

Hi Everyone!,

It is my turn over on the Colourcraft Design Team Blog This weekend and I have made a trio of ATC’s using the Whimsical Summer Stamp Set by Rubber Dance.

I do like this stamp set a lot, it is versatile and the elements are small enough for ATC’s and a host of other potential projects 🙂

Please head on over to the Colourcraft Blog to see what I made 🙂

Have a great weekend

Hi Everyone!

A very warm welcome to the Fabulous Rubber Dance Art Stamps and Colourcraft Blog Hop!

My project for the blog hop today is a keyring holder and features the Whimsical Summer Stamp Set, Grungy swirls background stamp and Colourcraft Brusho and Aztec Pearl Paint.

Whimsical Summer 1

My project started of as a chipboard kit and I applied a layer of white gesso to all the elements

Whimsical Summer 2

I then started to apply my Brusho crystal colours to create a background, drying in between layers to ensure the colours did not bleedtoo much to give me 3 difinitive areas.. sky, background and grass

Whimsical Summer 3

For the houses, I mixed custom colours by adding Brusho to white gesso .. so versatile



I also used the grungy swirls background stamp over a few of the elements prior to painting with the brusho


Once all the painting was complete, I stamped out several of the whimsical summer stamps onto waterolour paper and used the brusho as a watercolour medium, then fussy cut out the elements and assembled the project
