Garden Cats Card by Gail

Image
Hello Rubber Dance friends.   Gail here today with a card I made for friend as a part of the June Card Chain Challenge.  The Card Chain Challenge is an international card exchange.  Every month an ever changing group of very talented ladies, and the occasional bloke, make a card, send a card and receive a card.  Everyone gets a card, everyone wins.  I have been a regular player and administrator for many years.  This is the card I sent to Hilary in the UK. I started by stamping the cat on some white card and masking.  Then I stamped the pebble stamp from Mixed Media Marks #3 with Bluebird archival ink.  I stamped the curved ladder stamp from Pencil Marks #5 with Dandelion archival above the pebbles.  I actually stamped it three times, but didn't like that I didn't line it up so there were no gaps, so I decided to fussy cut the top of the first ladder and round the cat's head.  The cut offs didn't go to waste cos I used them for my sentiment panel, stamping the perfe

Easy art journal page by Lisa

 Hi friends!  Lisa today with my new art journal inspiration for you with some awesome Rubber Dance stamps! First I stamped some branches with versamark pad and I embossed them with white powder. Then I used some Distress Oxide as watercolors to give color to the background. I used Mix A Sentiment 3 with archival ink for little details. I stamped a Butterfly from Inky Friends stamp set and I used it as the focal point of the page with a sentiment. Finally I made splatters with black liquid paint to add a little contrast to my art journal inspiration. I used these products from the shop: https://www.rubberdance.de/small-sheets/mix-a-sentiment-3/#cc-m-product-14519570233 https://www.rubberdance.de/big-sheets/inky-friends/#cc-m-product-14383086833 I hope you enjoyed my new art page for you today! Hugs, Lisa 

Leaves Collage art journal page by Ellie Knol

Today another page in my gelliprinted-pages-journal.  The HOW-to: - Gather fussy-cut images to fit the background: - Decide on the composition, just roughly. I changed it a little in the end: - Stamp in the background with a coordinating color; I chose red:   - Stamp in the background with the same ink the fussycut images were stamped with; in my case Archival Ink Plum: - Add white doodling and edges with a white acrylic marker. I used Posca.      - Adhere the focal images and sentiment to the page:  **** Another page and stamp set done in the journal.  See you next time,  Ellie   Rubber Dance Stamps: The Rubber Dance Webshop Sketchy Leaves (Clear - 0003) Pencil Marks # 4 Sketchy Flowers #1 Grungy Stuff Pick A Number

Choose peace & freedom - Card by Farida

Image
 Hello lovlies, I am happy to be back on the blog again. Today full of dreams and hopes to have a world with peace and freedom for everyone.  Inspired by my dreams and wishes I created this card with a dream catcher, mainly using the Textured Feathers Stamp set.  This stamp set comes with the some coordinating outline and full stamps. Thats amazing, so we can stamp the feathers coloured without using markers or pencils. Here I used some ink pads to stamp the inner parts and afterwards stamped the outline over it in black ink colour.  I have drawn two circles and coloured the inner part for the round dream catcher base. From the feathers to circle I added some lines as the thread and added some lines and bows, so it looks like they are wrapped and tied around the ring. On the background I used the dots that come along with this set to add some intrest on  background.  To finish teh card I added some words from the Mix A Sentiment #3 Stamp set.  Stay healthy and crafty.

Scrap Diary by Angie Coomber

Image
 Hello arty friends, Angie here with a page in my art journal. Recently I have seen someone keeping a scrap diary, meaning they collect bits and pieces from their desk, for example their underpaper or mop up pages, choosing the most interesting sections and cutting them into equal sized pieces, then gluing them onto a page for every month. Over time this provides a kind of record of the type of art you've been creating. I picked the pieces below to start with, about 3 of each colour. I worked out how many pieces would fit on my double page and chose the 12 I liked the most. I used the Carved Collection #1 and Pencil Marks #1 stamp sets to stamp on the squares, using black Archival Ink. Next I roughly sorted the squares into rainbow colours (one of my go-to's when I can't decide which order to put things in, haha), then glued them onto my journal pages. Finally I roughly outlined all of the squares with a black fineliner. I quite like this simple geometric design! Until next
