A friend gave me a box of Crown Waxfibre Food Dividers. I thought it would be fun to see what I could do with it. Another thing I wanted to try was stamping on fabric and painting over the stamping with acrylic paint.
Here is the first card where the food dividers were used.
I saw a card where a woven panel was used as a background using painted card stock and heat embossed stamped vellum. A small pattern stamp was used for the vellum strips but I decided to see what would happened if I stamped using a larger stamp and then cutting my strips. I used the Simple Brush Flourish stamp and stamped two rows on vellum. Then heat embossed with white pearl powder which ended up looking more silver on the vellum. I cut these in 1/2 inch strips. Then I painted two different colors of purple acrylic paint on white card stock using a bristle brush. I sponged acrylic antique gold paint over the purple but it doesn't really show up. The card stock was also cut in 1/2 inch stips. Then woven together.
I cut a frame out using my cutting machine and then colored it with a silver paint marker. Lol I now remember why I only use the paint markers in good weather when I can use them outdoors. I cut black card to use for the base..
I used Stazon Ink to stamp the Fashion Warbler Small on a food divider. I colored it with Faber Castell water color pan paints and the body with a metallic pan paint. I discovered that the paint beaded up on the surface so I used a paper towel to blot before changing to another color. Can't wait to experiment more with the Food Dividers.
The Be Happy is printed on the scrap of the Food Divider . Then the speech bubble cut out using my cutting machine.
Here is my second card the experiment of stamping and painting on fabric.B Buterrfly Trail which allowed the stamped image to show.
The more detailed B-2 Sided Butterfly stamp. I heat embossed with antique gold embossing powder. Then colored the body with a black Glaze pen. I used transfer adhesive first for the turquoise foil and after doing the turqouise used the adhesive on the dots for the purple foil.
The finishing touch was to make a top and bottom border using G Studio Washi tape.
I hope I have inspired you to experiment and play. Wishing you a year full of stamping and playing just for fun.
See you again on the 23rd with a Valentine card in the meantime be sure to come back and see what the other design team members are doing.
