Butterfly Moon Tag by Samantha Read

Image
Hello, Samantha here today and I'm sharing a beautiful, quick project featuring one of my favourite Rubber Dance Stamps, the gorgeous butterfly. I started by covering a greyboard tag and some thick white card, using watercolour paints I made the background and then stamped on some details using coordinating distress inks and the Mixed Media #3 stamp set. I stamped the butterfly and coloured using the same colours, added some highlights with a white Posca pen and cut out. I then adhered the moon, butterfly, stars and 'fly' text in place and as always I finished with some inky splats. Finally some ribbon. I do hope you like. For lots more inspiration you could join us at the Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge on Facebook right here . Here are the stamps I used for my tag; Inky Friends Mixed Media Marks #3 and Small Grungy Butterflies for the text.  Thanks so much for looking, wishing you a wonderful day, Sam :)

FLORAL CARD - FREE

  Hi friends!! Josi Tomàs ( @elbauldegiulietta ) greets you to show you a once again a very simple and quick tutorial that results in a beautiful card.  I hope you enjoy the flowers and fresh colors as much as I do. It shows that the cold has not yet reached my city.     I have created a background of pigments of different colors on a watercolor paper. With the same tones I have painted the flowers and I have cute it.    With permanent gray ink, I stamp some branches and go over them with a graphite pencil and painted with white Posca marker to highlight. I have also tamped letters with black ink. Finally I have torn a flower patterned paper that had the same colors as my background on watercolor paper and I have glued it in the centre of the background. Usually I choose the paper first and then I loos for the colors of the pigments, sprays, acrylics... In this way it is always coordinated without complications.    I hope you enjoyed it and if you dare t make one by following the tut

Watercolor bookmark by Lisa

Image
 Hi friends! Lisa here with you to share my new watercolor inspiration playing with awesome Rubber Dance stamps! To start I played with my favourite watercolors on a piece of paper to create a nice background with pink, yellow and purple colors. I chose Mixed Media Marks Clear stamps and I made a little stamping with archival inks. I stamped some designs on a piece of white cardstock and I used them as the focal point of my bookmark. I added some stickers and I made splatters with white liquid paint. I used these products from the shop: https://www.rubberdance.de/clear-stamps/mixed-media-marks-1-clear-0001/#cc-m-product-14534935433 https://www.rubberdance.de/clear-stamps/sketchy-birds-clear-0006/#cc-m-product-14534922233 https://www.rubberdance.de/big-sheets/sketchy-leaves/#cc-m-product-14519569833 I hope you enjoyed my inspiration today for you! Hugs , Lisa 

Autumnally hello ..... by Farida

Image
 Hello lovlies, I send you a autumnally hello with this card. Some days ago I also picked up some chestnuts..the ones you can see in the picture, too. I started with a white cardstock panel and layed down some yellow, orange and green colour using the distress oxides inks, some water and a brush. Next I used some leavey stamps from the Carved Collection #4 . For some more texture I prepared the edges of the cardstock aswell as the vellum piece, that I glued down, slightly decentral.  For the big tree stamp I used some green distress ink first and added some clear heat embossing on top of it. This brought some more texture on the card. For the last step I added a handletterd "hello" to finish of the card.  Thank you for stopping by and reading. Love, Farida

Inky Flower collages by Ellie Knol

Ellie here today... Using pastel colors in my creations is always such a challenge to me.  Creating some contrast solved it on these cards and I am aware that we all have our preferences for color and their depth/hue.  Enjoy the pictures, and enter our ongoing challenges with your makes! See you next time.    Rubber Dance Stamps: The Rubber Dance Webshop Inky Flowers Grungy Stuff Grungy Sequins
