Three Paint Drips Cards

Darkroom Door - Sunday, April 30, 2017
Hi, it's Belinda here today to share three cards featuring the fabulous new Paint Drips Eclectic Stamp. I loved creating with this stamp so much. I just love those drips combined with actual drips on my projects to create an awesome layered effect.


Instructions:
1. Cut a piece of red cardstock 14.5cm x 29cm. Fold in half to form the card base.
2. Cut a piece of smooth white cardstock 14cm x 14cm. Spritz the carstock with water. Choose three Distress Inks and press the ink pads onto acrylic stamping blocks. Use a soft wet paintbrush to apply drips of these ink colours onto the cardstock surface. Lift the cardstock to make the colours run. Flick some of the ink colours over the surface. Dry with a heat gun.
3. Apply the same ink colours to the Paint Drips Eclectic Stamp (It is easier to use the Mini Distress Ink pads for this technique). Spritz with water and stamp over the top of the ink on the cardstock. Ink the edges of this piece. Stick down on the card front.
4. Apply the quote from the Brushed Sentiments Stap Set at the top of the card using Jet Black Archival Ink.
5. Stamp five small butterflies from the Butterflies Stamp Set onto some scrap white cardstock. Use an ink blending tool to apply the Distress Ink colours. Flick some water over the top and dry with a heat gun. Fussy cut and add to the card front along the top line of the paint drips.


Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Paint Drips Eclectic Stamp

Darkroom Door Brushed Sentiments Rubber Stamp Set

Instructions:
1. Cut a piece of black cardstock 15.5cm x 21cm. Fold in half to form the card base.
2. Cut a piece of smooth white cardstock 10cm x 15cm. Apply diluted Distress Ink colours as per the previous card. Flick the colours over the surface and dry with a heat gun. Use the same ink colours to apply the Paint Drips Eclectic Stamp. Staple on some messy embroidery thread in co-ordinating colours. Stick down on the card base.
3. Apply a sentiment from the Brushed Sentiments Stamp Set at the bottom of the card front using Jet Black Archival Ink.
4. Stamp the Patchwork Butterfly Collage Stamp on another piece of white cardstock using the Jet Black ink. Dry with a heat gun. Apply the same Distress Ink colours as per the card front using an ink blending tool. Flick water droplets over the surface and dry with the heat gun again. Fussy cut the butterfly and add to the card front.

4. Use a sot wet paintbrush to run some diluted Broken China Distress Ink down the card front allowing it to run to the bottom of the piece. Dry with a heat gun.
5. Apply three Distress Ink colours to the Paint Drips Eclectic Stamp. Spritz with water and apply to the card front. Stick down on the card base.
6. Use the same Distress Ink colours on the Fancy Flourish Eclectic Stamp. Spritz with water and stamp on another piece of white cardstock. Blend the colour a little with the soft wet paintbrush. Dry with a heat gun. Fussy cut and add to the card front using 3D foam.
