Daily Thoughts - Stamp Set

And for this blog hop project, I created a mixed media card using this Daily Thoughts Stamp Set. First time I saw the cassette tape image, it reminded of my Junior High School year! Yes… I grew up with cassette tapes! LOL! 😀 😀 😀

First I created the background. On a black heavy cardtock, I stamped it using white acrylic paint and plastic bubble wrap. When the paint dried, I used a Distresser Tool to distress the edges of the page.

Next, I sprayed some homemade gold paint spray on a white cardtock, dried with craft heater, and cut it with one of the Rectangles Dies.

I added both background panels on a side-folded white card with strong liquid adhesive.

On a watercolor paper, I added the inks from Kaleidacolor Bouquet Ink Pad using brayer tool. First, I roll the brayer on the ink pad several times to make sure it pick up the inks, and then I sprayed it with the Ink Potion No.9 spray, and rolled it on the cardstock. And the magic happened! I love the distress and watercolor paper texture show up on this panel after the inking process.

I dried the inked cardstock with craft heater. And after that using my Mini MISTI, I stamped the Cassette image on in with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad. I stamped it several times to get a crisp image. Next, I fussy cut it with micro-tip scissors. I added on the card with 3D foam tape for an extra dimension.

For the sentiments, I stamped them on a white cardstock with London Fog Memento Dew Drop Ink Pad. Cut them down into paper strips, and added them on the paper with strong liquid adhesive.

I finished this card with some triangle metal studs I had in my stash. And my mixed media card is done!
