Mixed Media {Mon}: Club Scrap July Artist Team Challenge

by - Monday, July 31, 2017

Hello, Kraftie Friends!

Welcome to Club Scrap July Artist Team Challenge Blog Hop!
If you came from Club Scrap's Blog (Karen's post), you're in the right place!
Your next stop will be Debbie's Blog!

This month, Club Scrap's Artist Team was challenged to create projects inspired by the July NBUS Challenge on the Club Scrap chat forum: to make pages, cards, or other projects featuring a “frame” (or frames) designed using rubber stamps or stencils.

Since I usually stamp, I thought it would be nice to do a different technique, so I went with stenciling!
I trimmed a 5" x 7" mat and stenciled the arrows (Adirondacks Arrows and Words Stencil) using Memento Rich Cocoa ink pad and round Blending Tool.

Here's the page without photo...
I tore some printed paper and inked the edges, added one more with arrows and the Embellishment Cutapart (I rounded the corners and added Ribbon - Adirondacks Fibers - with a stapler). Supplies are from Club Scrap Adirondacks Collection.
Then, I added the wooden arrows (from an older Collection - Navigation).

Here it is with the photo:

Then, I thought it would be fun to die cut a stenciled frame for a card:

I stenciled the words (Garden Shed Words Stencil) on Adirondacks plain paper and die cut using 2 ODBD Stitched Rectangles dies (save the smaller panel for another project!)

I stamped the flower image (Vintage Botany Jumbo unmounted stamps) on the white card base and colored it with colored pencils.
I added the Kraft Raffia (Adirondacks Fibers) on the frame and adhered it with foam tape.
I added some Dimensional Paint in Gold and Glitter on the flowers.
