Well its a new year and that means that Creative Wednesday is back, this is my Second Design Team assignment for Creative Expressions this year although, due to scheduling, it was made and photographed last year! lol
For January we have all been tasked with making creations with the new range of Cat and Dog stamps that Julia showcased on Create and Craft in November. Now I am not a cute character person normally however I always see challenges such as this as fun as it really makes Me think how I can use a particular product in my style of crafting.
For the first project therefore I decided that I would borrow one of Julius techniques and stamp using Cosmic Shimmer misters mixed with Mica powder to make my own ink pad. The colours I chose were chestnut mister and copper mica.
I put some of the mica onto my craft sheet then sprayed the sheet with Chestnut ink mist. I mixed them together and wiped up the reluctant colour with a piece of cut n dry foam. This effectively made me a mica shimmer ink pad which I then used to stamp the images. It is as simple as it sounds and you can keep the resultant pad and revive it with another scary of the mister. I can't Thank Julia enough for this brilliant tip as I have used it on loads of projects I have coming up
I used the Creative Expressions Alfie single dog stamp, and the Ink pad I made, and stamp the image all over a roll of brown parcel paper. The tag was made in the same technique using Kraft foundation card.
