Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge featuring Kenny K's "Download Diva"

Happy Tuesday Blogger Friends!  Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Holiday weekend!  We had some really nice warm weather and so we enjoyed some pool and beach days over the weekend!  I just love Summer and so happy it is finally here!  I did have a chance to get some crafting done as well as my card for this week's Loves Rubberstamps Challenge!

I wanted to introduce our fabulous sponsor for this week's who is Kenny K!!!

And here is my card...

So I have really been in a "Mixed Media Arts" kind of mood lately.  In my last post, I showed you the mixed media tag I made for The Greeting Farm. For this challenge, I decided to try some of the same techniques on card.  The image I used is called Download Diva and I had so much fun creating with her.  The papers I used as the base are called "Sweet Afternoon" by Teresa Collins. I don't have a lot of light Shabby Chic paper collections so these really worked well.  I stamped my image with Memento ink in Black Tuxedo and colored her up with my copic markers.  I  edged my papers using my Tim Holtz distress ink in Pumice Stone.  So once I had my image ready and laid down my papers, my paint brush took over. I lightly primed the papers with some gesso and then took some light modeling paste on to a brick stencil by Crafters Workshop.  With this background, I sprayed some of my Lindy Stamp Gang Starburst sprays in "Forget me Not" and "Cotton Candy.  I did the same thing with my flowers and also the paper ribbon you see on the bottom.  The ribbon was made using a die by "Lil Inkers".  I love this die and will be using it again for future projects.  I added a "Dream" ticket from Tim Holtz and then some Recollections bling to finish it off! The modeling paste didn't seem to stand out as much as it did on the tag so I'm not sure if I didn't add enough or dry it well before spraying.  Still, I'm pretty happy with the way my card came out! 

Please check out the Loves Rubberstamps store to see supplies used on my card.  Also, check out the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge blog to see what other  projects the rest of the Design Team made.  If you want to join this fun challenge, I'll post the details below and you could have a chance to win some great prizes form the store. 

Hope you all like my card for the week!  Have a wonderful week and thanks so much for stopping by to visit! :)


  1. This is beautiful Marcy! I love the soft pretty pastels! I have wanted to start art journaling and doing some mixed media projects but I feel like I don't have enough "stuff" - LOL!
