Paint Splat Cards

Darkroom Door - Tuesday, August 07, 2018
Hi, it’s Belinda Spencer here today to share a set of cards featuring the Paint Splat Eclectic Stamp. This stamp just adds that perfect arty touch to your projects and eliminates the mess of using actual paints. Here I have used the stamp on three very different styles of cards; boy, arty and vintage.



Instructions:
1. Cut a piece of black cardstock measuring 10.5cm x 29cm. Fold in half to form the card base.
2. Cut a piece of smooth white cardstock measuring 10cm x 14cm. Apply the Brick Wall Background Stamp using Watering Can Archival Ink. Allow to dry. Use an ink blending tool to apply Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide. Ink the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink and stick down on the card base.
3. Stamp the Paint Splat on the ‘brick wall’ using a purple ink such as Hero Arts Neon Purple. Add more stamps from the Paint Splats Rubber Stamp Set as well as the Skater Rubber Stamp Set to create graffiti on the wall.
4. Stamp a boy from the Skater Rubber Stamp Set on some extra smooth white cardstock using Jet Black Archival Ink. Stamp again using Neon Blue and Neon Purple inks. Cut out the baseball cap stamped in blue and stick onto the image stamped in black. Carefully cut out the purple skateboard too and add to the black image. Fussy cut the whole black stamped image and add to the card front using 3D foam.
5. Stamp a sentiment on white cardstock using the Jet Black ink. Fussy cut and add to the card using 3D foam.

Instructions:
1. Cut a piece of black cardstock measuring 14.5cm x 21cm. Fold in half to form the card base.
2. Cut a piece of smooth white cardstock measuring 10cm x 14cm. Place the Crackle Small Stencil over the top and apply Hero Arts Neon Inks in Neon Orange, Pink and Purple using an ink blending tool. Ink the edges with the Neon Purple and stick this piece onto the card base.
3. Cut a piece of extra white cardstock measuring 7cm x 10.5cm. Apply the Paint Splat Eclectic Stamp using Neon Pink ink. Apply more paint splats from the Paint Splats Rubber Stamp Set using the various neon inks. Use a Neon Yellow paint dauber to add your own paint splats. Allow to dry.
4. Stamp the Regal Frame Stamp onto extra white cardstock using embossing ink. Heat set with gold embossing powder. Cut out the centre of the frame and then fussy cut the outside. Stick down over the piece of art created in Step 3. Add the whole piece to the card front using 3D foam.
5. Stamp some sentiments and add to the framed art work.

2. Cut a piece of smooth white cardstock measuring 10cm x 14cm. Apply the French Script Background Stamp using Watering Can Archival Ink. Use an ink blending tool to apply Antique Linen Distress Ink. Ink the edges with the same ink. Dry the ink completely with a heat gun or leave overnight to ensure it is completely dry for the next step.
3. Apply the Paint Splat Eclectic Stamp to the inked piece from Step 2 using embossing ink. Heat set with black embossing powder. Apply other ink splats from the Paint Splats Rubber Stamp Set in the same way. Stick this piece down on the card base.
4. Stamp the postcard from the Correspondence Rubber Stamp Set on extra smooth white cardstock using Jet Black Archival Ink. Dry the ink with a heat gun. Use the ink blending tool to apply the Antique Linen ink. Cut out and add to the card front. 
5. Stamp the feather and pen nib from the Correspondence Rubber Stamp Set as well as the ink bottle. Use a contrasting colour for the feather. Dry the feather with a heat gun and then apply an ink splat over the top using the embossing ink. Heat set with the black embossing powder. Also stamp a bulldog clip and sentiments. Fussy cut all images and add to the card front. Use the Alphabet Medley Rubber Stamp Set to create your own sentiment for the card and stamp it in the same colour as the feather.
