Hi everyone, Deonna here with my Project of the Week and I’m going to show you how to shadow ink. I kinda think of it as reverse coloring.

potw101617-db25

Supplies:
Vellum – Cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″- Folded in half for a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card
White Cardstock – Cut the same as the vellum above
Stamps by Repeat Impressions – 908-K Cornucopia, 514-I Prize Pumpkin, 3309-K Scarecrow & Friend and 4313-K Sunflower
Staz-on ink in black
Sponge dauber – mine is Tim Holtz
Ink pads – Distress ink in Frayed Burlap, Gathered Twigs, Cloudy Sky, Salty Ocean

1. Take your vellum and stamp your images all over the desired area. Stamp the cornucopia and then stamp a mask and cut it out. Mask cornucopia and then stamp pumpkin along with a mask and cut it out, repeat with scarecrow and sunflowers.

2. Photocopy the vellum image above onto a piece of printer paper with masking paper on top. Fussy cut the image out with scissors.

3. After cutting out the image, place behind the vellum image aligned directly under the vellum image. Place the mask onto the white cardstock base. It should just stick to the cardstock underneath.

4. Taking your sponge dauber and Ranger ink, sponge the ink around the mask on the white cardstock. I used blue for the sky and green for the bottom. Remove the mask on the white cardstock.

5. Cut down your vellum to the card size and attach the vellum image directly over the cardstock using double-sided tape or vellum tape at the top and bottom to hold the vellum to the card.

6. Add a sentiment to the vellum using Staz-on ink, if desired and enjoy. You are now finished.

Hi everyone! Deonna here with a new Project of the Week. I want to show you how to make “Cracked Glass”. So gather your supplies and let’s get started.

potw8217-db21

Supplies:
RI Stamps – Serengeti Collection5411-0 African Post Collage (lg) and 5306-J Chimp
Archival ink in Coffee
Decorative paper of choice
White Cardstock
Perfect Medium ink or Versamark
Thick embossing powder
Powder tray
Vintage Photo Distress Stain
Sponge
Heat Tool

potw8217-db1

1. Take your Post Collage stamp, archival ink, decorative paper and stamp the image onto the decorative paper. Trim the paper down to the desired size or die cut it out. I just cut mine to 5″ x 3 1/4″.

2. Gather your stamped image, versamark ink and thick embossing powder, heat safe mat, and powder tray. With the stamped side of your decorative paper facing up. Turn your versamark pad facing down and apply all over the stamped image. After inking, over the top of your powder tray pour your thick embossing powder onto the ink just applied to the decorative paper. Heat set the embossing powder. You’ll know that the powder is set once it all melts over the paper. Repeat the process another 1-2 times until the powder is melted and looks thick and shiny. Allow to cool.

3. Bend the embossed paper all different directions to create cracks. Bend more for fine cracks, bend less for larger cracks.

potw8217-db14

4. Take your Vintage Photo Distress Stain and rub all over the top of the image. This should allow the stain to seep into the cracks and give an “Antiqued” look. You can also sponge over the cracks to get more stain into them. Take a paper towel and remove the excess stain.

5. I then decided to repeat the whole process with the chimp stamp. Now we have the final project to create a card with.

Acrylic Block
White Copic friendly cardstock
Black ink pad – This is a Ranger Archival Black
Copic Markers
Washi tape
Rectangle Spellbinder die
Distress inks in Broken China and Forest Moss

potw62617-db1

potw62617-db2

potw62617-db3

2. Color the image as desired. I used Copic markers to color mine.

potw62617-db4

potw62617-db5

3. Take your Spellbinders rectangle die and using your die cut machine, cut it out. After running it through the Big Shot, leave the cardstock in the die and flip to the backside. Put a piece of tape on the back of the die and image to keep it from moving. Flip over to the front again.

4. Grab your stippling brushes and distress ink. Take your Broken China Distress Ink and run the brush through the ink just getting a small amount on the tips of the bristles. Pounce the excess ink off onto a scrap piece of paper and then run the bristles back and forth over the image to cover. Continue until you get the desired color. Repeat the process using your Forest Moss Distress Ink.

5. Remove the tape from the die and look at the beautiful frame that you have left and the colors of the background. Now your ready to create your card.

Hi Everyone… Deonna here, with my Project of the Week for Repeat Impressions Stamps.
Today, I would like to make a Bible Art page and walk you through it using Repeat Impressions stamps. Bible journaling is my all new favorite thing to do lately. What a better way to memorize and study scripture then to create art with it.

Sometimes I like to prep my page, but since I’m using Inktense pencils and they only give a shadow to the back of the page, I’ve chosen not to. Otherwise I use Art Basics Clear Gesso to prep my page.

Supplies:
Creative Bible – The Promises of God Creative Journaling Bible
Repeat Impressions Stamps –
1712-P, By the Stream
4218-K, Whitetail Doe and Fawn
Black ink – Ranger Archival
Inktense ink pencils by Derwent
Watercolor pen or brush
Black Pitt Pen by Faber Castell for lettering
Pencil
Post-it notes for masking

potw5117-db1

1. Read your bible and choose a verse that you want to use as your emphasis for the page. I’ve chosen, Psalm 42: 1. Mark off your verse or verses that you have chosen to use. You can just use your pitt pen and mark around them, underline them, use a post it note to cover it while you stamp your images or just use a highlighter.

2. Arrange your stamps on the page where you want them to be. Using black permanent ink, (I use Archival or Staz-on) stamp your first image (deer) onto he bible page and then stamp the image again onto a post it note (some kind of adhesive backed paper) and cut the image out. Place the mask over the deer and stamp the water scene onto the bible page.

3. After your stamped images have been stamped where you desire, you can now add your text/verse to the page.*** I generally practice this on a piece of scrap paper before I actually use a pencil and write it onto the page. Once I’m happy with it I outline it with my black pitt pen and erase the pencil marks that I can still see.

potw5117-db11

4. After adding the text to the page, you may color your image with whatever medium that you desire. I’ve chosen Inktense ink pencils in this case because I love how bright and bold they are when activated with water.

5. After I have completed the coloring, I generally add where I found the verse in the bible.
Psalm 42:1 and add the date to the bottom of the page with my date stamp when my project is complete.

Now you have a beautiful piece of Art right in your bible.
