I am building a card using bits and pieces from multiple stamp sets.
I have so many stamps that I have wanted to use, I decided to take stamps from different sets to create one card.
Thus I am able to justify to myself why I needed to buy so many different sets.
(I know I am not the only one to feel this way. Right?)
I think this shows how versatile Sin City Stamps really are!
Sin City Stamp Set - Mountain & Beaches
Beach Grass Stamp
Ink: shades of blue, green and brown
Step 1: Using texture paste, create a brick wall effect on card layer. This will give texture to the card. Tip* It helps to use re-positional tape to hold paper in place.
Step 2: Stamp water and sand on the layer that should be cut to be slightly larger then the window panes of the die.
Step 3: Cut the window sheet to be slightly larger then the window pane openings. Die cut the window out.
Step 4: Ink blend over the water and sand to fully color the card layer.
Step 5: Stamp beach grass in green on the sandy beach creating realism.
White, black and Kraft cardstock
Black pigmented ink
Clear, colorful and white embossing powder
Clear embossing ink
Step by step instructions: ATC #1
1. Make two white cardstock ATC card, (2 ½ "x 3 ½")
Stamp with the same stamp over both cards.
Use the black pigmented ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
2. Use large acrylic block and mist it with 3 or 4 different colors.
3. Wipe the stamped ATC card over the misted block.
4. Stamp a few butterflies, then using the clear embossing ink, heat emboss them with a mix of colorful embossing powders and glitters.
Hand cut the butterflies.
5. Glue a couple of hand cut vellum stamped butterflies over the first card.
Use a stencil to add Gel Medium over the card.
6. Stamp the small words with Sin City stamps and hand cut one to add over the first finished ATC card.
Ink the edges of the card with paint or ink.
7. Mist the second white cardstock. Stamp the card. Add color with three different mists directly onto the card.
As you can see we have a different background with this technique.
8. Use another stencil to add Gel Medium over the second card.
9. Glue the stamped vellum butterflies over the second card and add another stamped word.
10. Stamp more images over black cardstock ATC card using clear embossing ink and white embossing powder.
11.Paint over the textured ATC card with Gelatos. Wipe the color with baby wipe to create circles around the flowers.
12. Add some texture with a stencil and white texture paste.
13. Ink the edges and glue two vellum butterflies. Glue the stamped words.
14. Stamp in the same way as on ATC #3 over Kraft cardstock.
15. Paint over and around the stamped images with acrylic paints.
16. Add a thin layer of Crackle Glaze over the card. Let the glaze dry.
17. Glue a butterfly and the stamped words.
So here all 4 ATC's together and to tell the truth- I'm not sure if I like one more than the other...
I think that the black is my favorite, but as you know we all like different things.
So just go and try each and every technique and have fun!

Step 1: Add a layer of gesso over the page, cut some threads and place them around the edges in a swirly way. Use another layer of gesso over the threads and then let dry until the threads are adhered to the page.
Step 3: Dilute the gesso with water and go over the page so the impression of the stamp will be in the background.
Step 4: Apply modeling paste through a stencil around the edges, Let dry
Step 5: Apply crackle paste on all edges around the spread partially covering the circles that where made in step 4.
Let this dry.
Step 6 : Spray some blue ink in the middle of the page, then spray some water and move the journal around to let the ink run over the page. Let dry when you are happy with how it looks.
Step 7: Spray purple ink around the edges.
Be careful to not let it run into the middle of the page but allow it to run around all textures ( the thread, modeling and crackle paste).
The ink will move easier if you spritz it with water.
Step 8: Experiment a bit with the mister and the water to get the result you like.
If you have too much ink use a baby wipe to dab it off. Spraying with the water bottle will give it a nice water drop effect .
When you are happy with your background, set it aside to dry.
