Good day my Friends. Here is another card that i made for Sweet Pea Stamps. As you may know it's week of the Artist - Joanne Schempp. time from time i like to make cards for a Man, so this Pirate image just prefect for that. Image call "Ancient One". He is gorgeous, isn't it?
Here is some close up photos on the details. For the backing paper i use MS punch
Here's an awesome Sweet Pea stamps image called Come Hither from artist Lynne Stansbery. I just love this sexy lady looking back over her shoulder for her man. How beautiful is that? I am using some gorgeous papers from Paper Temptress to complete this card.
Here's a wonderful close up of the image which is currently on sale in the store as a digi stamp.
Be sure and check out all of the other gorgeous images from Lynne at the Sweet Pea store. She makes all sorts of realistic images as well as cutesy images. Also, take a peek at our group over on Facebook, we have a Sweet Pea Stamps Friends and Fans group where you are welcome to share your creations, join in challenges and see tons of wonderful creations.

I really love how this project turned out!!! I have been playing with encaustic wax painting lately but some how my paper arts/rubber stamping addiction always has to get in on the action :)
I first built up many layers of wax - painting first several clear layers and then alternating colored layers with clear to get the backround the way I wanted it.
Next I used a transfer technique for the ship - made a large copy onto regular printer paper and rubbed it into the wax - then wetting the paper somewhat rubbed off the paper which leaves just the image in the wax.
The pirate I had colored with prismacolor pencils onto Neenah 'desert storm' which is a smooth kraft cardstock and I layed him on top of a warm layer of wax and added several layers of wax ontop of him to hold him in place.
Both images are by Joanne Schempp - 'The Black Pearl' and 'Ancient One' and are both available as rubber stamps and as digis' (and believe it or not I have both versions of both...)
Lastly I added a couple oyster shells and a black pearl and gold sword make with clay (the sword with a mold)
All for today - Take Care
Today is my day to showcase and image from Sweet Pea Stamps and I have chosen to work with the beautiful image Ancient One by Joanne Schempp which is available from the Sweet Pea Store in both rubber and digi.
I have not tried mixed media like this before so be gentle with me :) :) I am in awe of some of the mixed media projects I have seen on the web and just could not resist giving it a go. To begin with I printed my image, well two as I was thinking about having another Joanne Schempp image of the sail ship in the background but had not totally made up my mind. The idea soon flew out the window and I decided I did not need it.
Next I raked out a whole load of dies and double cut them using stiff white card. The dies I used were Tattered Lace Retro Alphabet, Memory Box Splash Border which I cut up into two sections and also used the spiral excess bits of the die and finally Marianne Designs Creatables Anchor. I also added some Flower Soft and some bead and metal shells.
I don't have many supplies for this sort of project as not much is available in Saudi Arabia, or a least I have not seen many products around but I do have some white acrylic paint so that is what I used to paint over the background ready for airbrushing with Promarkers later. Next I coloured the image with just one colour of blue Promarker, trying to build up the colour but using several layers.
Onto the background, I first masked my coloured image and set to with the airbrushing in two colours of blue, one was Bluebell but I can't remember what the other was lol - afraid I was having to much fun to remember to write down what I had used.
Next I stippled some PVA glue in areas and then stippled with silver bronzing powder on top. I added lots of Pearl and Silver Liquid Pearls to the digi.
Not quite happy with the digi so using the darker of the two blues I used for the background I added a bit more depth to him. Finally I added a silver ships wheel charm and three brads. A blast of Crafters Companion Silver Varnish and all done. This decorated mat was then mounted on a silver mirror card mat, a navy corrugated mat and then a mauve mat. The group was them attached to my navy card blank.
For the inside of the card I used Spellbinders Labels 1 and a Spellbinder embossing folder. A bit more of the silver bronzing powder and another anchor completed this section.
And here we have it - a rather funky man card. For a first attempt I am pretty pleased with myself and most of all I had amazing fun, getting covered in paint and glue I felt like a kid all over again, such a fun day :) :) :)
