Art Impressions & Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Exclusive!

Hello!

Guess what?!?! Art Impressions has teamed up with Simon Says Stamp for a STAMPtember Exclusive Girlfriends stamp set!!! So excited to be showing off this new stamp set with the other Art Impressions Design Team and Simon Says Stamp!!



Such a fun stamp called Dance It Out!! It is a rubber cling stamp with four ladies dancing with 3 different sentiments in the distinct Art Impressions style - witty and fun!!

I started my card by stamping the image with Memento black ink, then coloring it up with Spectrum Noir Markers (i used BP2, BP6, BT1, BT2, BT4, CG1, CG2, CT1, CT3, CT4, DG2, EB5, FS2. FS3, FS6, GB5, GB8, GB10, IG2, IG4, OR1). I picked colors that would match some new thin washi tapes i picked up at Michael's. For the first dancer i used the Colorless Blender pen to add polka dots to here dress.

Next i fussy cut out the top 3/4 of the image, using a black marker to ink the edges. I left the bottom of the image in the white card stock.

Then i added the strips of thin washi tape to a white card base. The background is a bit busy but i really like how it turned out. After applying the washi tape i added my cut out image with foam tape. I waited until it was adhered before i trimmed off the over hang from the white part i left at the bottom. Because i knew that the bottom part of my card would be covered by the white cardstock i left attached to my image i didn;t add washi tape to the whole card.

Next i found a Simon Says Stamp Talk Bubbles die and cut it from white card stock. I stamped the When In Doubt Dance It Out! sentiment on the bubble, then added it to my card with foam tape.

Last i added Wink of Stella to the the polka-dots, purple dress and green cardigan. Dancing should have a little sparkle!! :)

  38. You've done a fantastic job on this stamped image. I thought you might have put a wobble beneath it. Great job.

  39. Dana, you have totally and completely ROCKED this image! Awesome colouring, fabulous layout! Love it! When you have a chance, let me know what you think about the Spectrum Noir markers. I've been using my Chameleon pens and when they work, they're awesome. When they don't...grrrrrr! I can't afford copics, so SN seems like a 'reasonable' choice. Looking forward to your 'review'...
