Rubbernecker: Just One More Halloween Card…

img_2041Good Morning! Today I have another Halloween card to share with you using Rubbernecker stamps and those fabulous color burst watercolors! I made my background paper with the Ken Oliver聽 Color Bust Watercolor pigments, this is so incredibly easy, just takes a little patience. I also used the Heavy Metals on top of my color to add some splotches of gold, witch turned out quite interesting when I stamped my focal image, the gold came through my ink, as if I had done this step after I had stamped! I was curious to see if I could make my own shimmer spray with the Heavy Metals, so I mixed several drops in a mini mister with water. I spritzed this over my entire background paper, and it is SO shimmery!! (also done before stamping the image!) I an really enjoying all of the different things you can do with these Color Burst Water Colors, so fun!!

I used Pumpkin Man #936 as my focal image, spooky and fun! I really like these silhouette style images, they make up so quickly, but with a lot of impact! Sentiment is from Halloween Set 2 #474. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. I would love to hear from you! There is also much more inspiration on the Rubbernecker Blog, pop over and check it out HERE!

Hope your day is wonderful, thanks for stopping by!!

Rubbernecker Design Team Sunday: Skeleton Dance

fullsizerender7UMMMM? Where are all my words?? was going to add some things to my little blog this morning and noticed that this post was missing all the words I had written!! eeek! Not really sure what happened, but the post聽 went kind of like this:

Good Morning, thanks for stopping by!! I have another Rubbernecker card to share with you today, this one is using the set Halloween Set 2 #474 again. I stamped three of the skeletons side by side and colored them with copic markers, cut them out, and then searched for Halloween papers that would work… or Halloween paper in general… I have been reorganizing my craft area, I am not sure if it was a good idea or not yet, it’s like I opened the craft version of Pandora’s box!聽 I really think I need to start coming up with a plan first, it might help!

Anyway, there are lots of fun cards to see on the Rubbernecker Blog because it is Sweet Sunday Design Team Showcase!! Check it out HERE!

Rubbernecker- Halloween House with Color Burst Background

IMG_2352These color burst watercolors are really kind of addictive and super fun! I made a bunch of back ground papers, just playing around with the color bust, experimenting and learning how they work. This is actually from the same piece that I shared a couple weeks ago. Once the background paper is made up, a card like this goes together so fast! Rubbernecker has some really wonderful Halloween stamps, this one is called Halloween House #660 and I love it!! 馃檪

Rubbernecker – Creeping into Halloween…

IMG_2351Good Morning! I have a little Rubbernecker Halloween card to share with you today!! This cute little mummy is one of my favorite images from Rubbernecker’s Halloween 2 set #474, so FUN! This set has 4 cute Halloween images and 11 sentiments to go with them!! I used the Cheesecloth Background # 437 as well, I stamped it in brown ink on a creamy paper, cut it into strips, and inked the edges well. I stamped the background a second time on the same creamy paper, and then glued my strips haphazardly to mimic the look of my mummy’s bandages. The sentiment is one from the Halloween 2 set. I colored this little guy with Copic markers, quick, easy, and fun card!

Hope that your day is going well, thanks for stopping by! 馃檪 You can always check out the Rubbernecker Blog for more ideas and inspiration! 馃檪

Rubbernecker- Poppy with Color Burst

FullSizeRender(5)Hello! Thanks for stopping by today!! I have a lovely card to share with you today, using some great Rubbernecker Stamps! This is another Rubbernecker Watercolor stamp, it is a two part stamp which you can get a lovely watercolor effect quickly and easily every time! These stamps are so versatile, you can use ink or markers, rather than watercolors to produce the same lovely effect. Or you can just stamp the outline image and color with your favorite medium. Or, as I have done today, you can stamp the outline聽 image and paper piece using any beautiful paper of your choice!! 馃檪聽 Remember Wednesday when I shared the really beautiful paper I made using聽 the Ken Oliver Color Burst Watercolors?? ( see Wednesdays post HERE if not! ) Well this flower uses a scrap of that same paper for the paper piecing! Easy as can be, as well as quick and beautiful!! 馃檪 I created the background papers here with another fun set I think I will get a lot of use from, Scuffs, Scraps, and Stains. So fun!! Finished everything off with a bit of natural twine and a metal button.

Hope you enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed making it! Thanks for stopping by, don’t forget there is lots more inspiration over on the Rubbernecker Blog!! 馃檪

Rubbernecker- Imagine What You Could Do…

Today I have some fabulous paper to share with you!! I have been playing with the Ken Oliver Color Burst Watercolors and Liquid Metals, that I got from Rubbernecker Stamps.聽 So. Much. FUN! Holy cow the possibilities are endless!! Just look at this beautiful paper I made!! 馃檪IMG_1827I used the Caribbean Brights collection for this one, Chartreuse, Lime green, Tangerine, and Orchid. The Chartreuse didn’t end up showing up as much as I liked so I added just a touch of the lime green. I started by wetting my watercolor paper with a spray bottle, then just sprinkled the pigment on. It is so much fun to watch as the color literally “bursts” on your paper!! Each one is different and unique, you can totally change the mood by changing your color palette. I wanted a really blotchy look for my paper, so I sat out side in the sun and let it dry, then misted it again with my spray bottle. Let dry, mist again. I did this over and over until I got just the look I wanted. Then I got out the Liquid Metals!!! I had not worked with these before, so I started experimenting…. These are actually liquid to start with, so I used a paint brush to kind of splash it all over my paper, I wanted drips and splotches of gold. Then I started wondering what it would do if you did mix it with water… I got out a mini mister and added like 8 -10 drops of the Pewter, and filled the rest of the mini mister with water. I sprayed my water, liquid metal mixture across the whole paper, and it created the most beautiful shimmer, without a heavy metallic look!!! I LOVE it!! I will be doing this often to create that perfect shimmery paper, it is so easy! 馃檪

For my card I wanted the paper to be the star, so I used a lovely Rubbernecker sentiment Imagine What You Could Do. I layered it simply on complementary papers, and added a little blingy sequin ribbon to bring out the gold splotches.

Thanks for stopping by today, I really appreciate it! 馃檪 The Rubbernecker Blog is a great place to find all kinds of inspiration! Check it out HERE!

I love the look of water colors, and these Rubbernecker Watercolor Stamps make that look a quick and聽 easy process! There is even a video HERE to help you out if you have never done this technique before! These are two part stamps, so if you wanted to color this image you could just stamp the outline image and color away. I chose to do the water color technique, following the video just to see how it would work for me. I used the Ken Oliver Color Burst Watercolors as well. I used both the Brights and the Caribbean Brights Color Burst Sets. This image was my very first attempt!! Ridiculously easy and fun too!! 馃檪 Those Ken Oliver Color Burst Watercolors are crazy fun! I spent a couple hours experimenting with them. Not only can you use them to paint with like traditional watercolor, but they make the most amazing background paper ever!! I will be sharing some projects soon that showcase the beautiful papers I made!

Hope that you are having a fabulous day, thanks for stopping by! 馃檪
