"In the air" Postcard by Angie Coomber

Image
Hello arty friends, Angie here with a postcard for you. I've had this lovely piece of gelli print in my stash for a while now and when I got the gorgeous balloon stamp I knew that the gelli print would make a nice sky background. I started by added a little bit of background stamping with the sentiment stamp. I stamped the balloon on a variety of colours  (I make a lot of these multi-coloured gelli prints so that one sheet will give me a ready-made set of colours that will go together). I used one of the balloons as the base and added elements from the others to add more interest. I also stamped the cloud/sun image several times, using the blue clouds and the yellow sun for my postcard. Once I'd assembled my card I added the word. I finished off by adding some doodling with a white Posca pen and some confetti made from holographic paper scraps. I really love the unpredictable results you sometimes get with gelli prints and think these ones work particularly well together. Until

Floral bookmark by Lisa

 Hi friends! Lisa today on the blog to show you a quick and easy bookmark playing with my favourite Rubber Dance stamps! To start I played with my favourite watercolors on a piece of paper to create a nice background with teal, green and blue colors. I chose Mixed Media Marks Clear stamps and I made a little stamping with black and pink archival inks. I stamped some designs of leaves and flowers 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.com/mixed-media-marks-1-clear.html https://www.rubberdance.com/sketchy-leaves-clear.html https://www.rubberdance.com/inky-flowers-clear.html I hope you enjoyed my new inspiration for you today! Hugs, Lisa 

Journal Word Tag

H i, I'm Vero (@ Vero.kt) and I welcome you to today's inspiration. How's everybody ? I've been playing with     Mix it up 2 ,  Journal Word ,   Mixed media marks 1  and   Pencil Marks  3   to create a Tag  that I hope you like. On watercolor paper, I play with different spray inks to create a colorful layer and use a blow dryer to speed up the process. I choose a stencil and apply micro distress glaze (this medium is waterproof, so the surfaces you apply it to won't be affected by water. You can use it as a resist when applying watercolors or any water-based paint or ink)   I use a dryer to speed up the process and to add interest and depth to the page, I stamp different stamps with permanent ink. To add light and texture to the background, I add texture paste with a stencil. One of the parts that I enjoy the most is the composition, I have to admit that it is  usually the part that takes me the most . Now I leave you some photos with details of the project.I hope

AHOY in neon by Priss

Hi, Rubber Dance's friends!!  Priss  is writing to you today with a little card to remind myself that sometimes I need to take a deep breath and take a moment just for myself. For this card, I used a piece of paper with traces of acrylic paint from some paintings I did while learning the Fluid Art technique. I thought it would make a wonderful background for a marine scene. And for that, nothing better than the stamps from the  AHOY  set that I just received. For the sand, I used two ice sheets from the  Playful Penguins  set. Here are a few detailed pictures of my project. I really hope you like it, what are you creating this week? Have you checked out our Facebook group  Rubber Dance Stamping Lounge  to see more wonderful inspiration?. We have a fabulous Mood this month to help bring you ideas. Hugs, Priss ( My Posts  |  Instagram  |  Facebook ) These are the stamps I used: AHOY Playful Penguins

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
