The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project showing something in the air. I had some time recently to just create for fun, and sat down with my stamps from
last summer's CHA release - I design a lot of my stamps with mixed
media and journaling in mind, and I really love how these bird stamps
work together in that way. I used acrylic paints, Colorbox Fluid Chalk
inks, and Versafine Onyx Black ink, plus a little black hemp, drywall
tape, and newspaper for dimension.
The base of this card is polka-dotted cardstock that I have had forever and never used - I think I may try starting off more of my mixed media cards with unloved cardstock and see where they go.
The white texturing was done with acrylic paint and a diecut (Floral Lace Heart) as a stencil mask.I cut my own bird head stencil from a piece of clear cardstock.
Stamps I used: French Text, Bird 1 Outline, She Has Wings, Soar, Feather 1, Peacock Single
