Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #36 - "Put a Stamp On It"


It's time for a new Mixed Media Monthly Challenge. This month our challenge it so "Put a Stamp On It" so easy - just make something with a stamped image. Our sponsor this month is my new store www.topflightstamps.com. Our lucky winner will win a $25 gift card from Topflight Stamps!!! I sell stamps from all around the world in one place. Be sure to check out Topflight Stamps.

Each of our designers this month used some awesome stamps from Topflight Stamps on their projects. I used a stamp set by JoyCrafts! from The Netherlands called Seashore Icons - perfect for you summer cards. I really love the images in this nautical set.

First, I used a 6 x 6 navy blue card base and stamped a background from stamps in the set with Versamark Ink. Then I brushed Pewter Perfect Pearls over the Versamark Ink. This technique makes such a pretty and subtle background. I'm not sure why the lighting made the navy card stock look so light, but the second picture is the correct color.


The I stamp the lighthouse scene from the stamp set with my MISTI. I stamped it several times 
using different colors in different places with my Tombow Markers. I shaded the edges with a Prima Chalk Ink Edger Pad in Old Road. I matted the paper with a DCWV burlap panel. 
I used PPA Glue to adhere the paper to the fabric and the fabric to the paper. 
I love PPA because it dries clears and works on almost everything. 


Thanks for stopping by!! Be sure to play this month at The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge.

  13. Oooh! I love the Perfect Pearls background panel...this makes this so special in my humble opinion. I have to remember that technique! PPA is my favorite adhesive for paper, too. I think it works well with Perfect Pearls, too, but I haven't tried it.
