GooseBumps make a great resist!
This is my AIRs Project of Choice for the month of September. I received some IMAGINE Crafts® GooseBumps™Texture Spray and also with a dauber top in the new Shimmer color along with ten different colors of IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko®VersaColor™ Pigment Ink. How can you go wrong with that combination? I decided to use the GooseBumps™ (it reminds me of liquid plastic) as a resist on a piece of 140# watercolor paper to start out the base of this project. I did a tutorial to walk you through the process so grab a cup of coffee or other appropriate beverage and watch this colorful card creation from start to finish.
I start by laying a stencil down on a large piece of water color paper and spraying, then daubing the IMAGINE Crafts® GooseBumps™Texture Spray through the stencil onto the paper. When this is dry I start applying color. I used IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko®VersaColor™ Pigment Ink in Fresh Green, Green, Cyan, Turquoise, Cyan and Orange. I applied it directly from the pad to the paper and then wiped it with a baby wipe. Now you can see how the GooseBumps™ pops through acting as a resist to the ink. I added small amounts of gesso to this master board and will add some stamping later.
Using the same inks I made a smaller master board on a piece of white cardstock to make my flower. After the ink was on the paper I applied IMAGINE Crafts®Embossing Powder in Iridescent to give the paper even more texture and heat set it with my heat gun. The VersaColor™ in Violet is perfect for the flower that I stamped with a Peony nestabilities stamp.
After stamping the 3 parts of the flower I cut it out and assembled it with a violet colored brad in the center. Now to put the components all together is a snap.
The base of the card is a piece of white card stock folded to make a 5” by 7” card. I cut out a piece from the watercolor master board and stamped some stems on it and a few circles with IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko®StazOn®Solvent Jet Black Ink then cut a piece to measure 3 ½” by 2 ½”, this will serve as a “vase” for the flower. Glue this to the blank card.
Using that same master board I die cut some leaves using a Sizzix die and my Big Kick machine. All the components are ready to be assembled. I glued the leaves down and then the flower centered with the “vase”. I stamped “Get Well” in the upper right hand corner and added a tiny violet bow with a glue dot. The edges are distressed with yummy IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko®Memento Luxe™Mixed Media Pigment Ink in Peanut Brittle.
This may seem like a long process but when completed you have enough of your own master board papers to make several cards like this not to mention extra pieces that can become ATCs. There are lots of possibilities here for future projects!
