Homespun Vintage Treasures... PDCC29 53

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, May 12, 2010 @ 8:57 PM | , ,

Hi There! Time again for another Creativity Challenge at The Play Date Cafe. Here is the card I made using the colors for the PDCC29: Sarah chose this week's gorgeous color palette:I have been having so much fun lately "experimenting" with a variety of techniques that I learned while at the Spellbinders Retreat from the "Senior" DT Leaders (Cathy, Beth & Kim :)
The heart & button embellishments were created using what I refer to as the "embossing & sanding" technique &the blue background was created using the "airbrushing" technique. I will spare you the details here because if you continue to scroll down, you will find the step-by-step tutorials :)

I hope you can join along with this week's creativity challenge. After you have made your project, please head on over to The Play Date Cafe & link your post. If you post your creations in an on-line gallery, please label it PDCC29 so we won't miss them! Be sure to see what all The Play Date Cafe DT girls have created, (on my side bar) & our Guest Designer, Heidi Van Laar. I hope you are able to join along with this week's challenge.

Supplies Used
:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Sweethearts, Judi Kins Artists Signature
Paper: Gina K. Pure Luxury cs, Papertrey Ink
Ink:
Copic B41 Powder Blue, Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Vintage Photo
Other:
Spellbinders™ Shapeabilities S4-014 Timeless Heritage, I2-1002 Butterfly Impressabilities™, W-001 The Wizard™, Copic Air brush, Melissa Frances Vintage embellishment, Fiskars border punch, ribbon, lace, button & brad from stash

First up is Tutorial #1: Copic Airbrushing technique (used to create the background paper on this card):

Supplies Used:
Spellbinders™ Butterfly Impressabilities™
Spellbinders™ The Wizard™
Copic Airbrush
Copic Marker (I used B41 Powder Blue)
Gina K. Pure Luxury cs

Step 1:

If using The Wizard™, assemble your sandwhich like so: White Master mat, tan emboss pad, cs, Impressabilities™, White Master mat. **Note: "sandwhich" may vary according to die cutting system used. **Tip: On a corner, I gently tape paper to Impressabilities™ template so when removing to spray, paper will remain attached to template.

Once sandwhich is formed, run cs through machine. Keeping paper & template together once embossed.

Step 2:
Now you are ready to airbrush background any color you like! Simply place marker in Copic airbrush according to manufacturer's directions.

With a gently sweeping motion from left to right, spray right over the template until you have the shade desired.

***Try mixing it up a bit & use several different colors on the same embossed piece of cs! The possibilities are endless! :) Hope this helps & maybe you will give it a try!

Tutorial #2: Embossing & Sanding Metal like products:

Supplies Used:
Spellbinders™ The Wizard™

Run through die cutting machine then emboss newly cut shapes.
If using The Wizard™, assemble your sandwhich like so: White Master mat, die template with product left in place, tan emboss pad, white master mat. **Note: "sandwhich" may vary according to die cutting system used.

Step 3:


Remove cut & embossed product from die template. Using an ultra fine sanding tool, gently rub over the shape, revealing the metal underneath until desired look is achieved.
