Hi there, welcome to our monthly Artistic Outpost blog hop. This month we are focusing on masculine projects. Before I get into all the details, here is the hop line up. We have such a talented design team this year and you are sure to be inspired by their work. Please do stop by their blogs and leave them some love!
Now for the deets...the Keeper plate is one of my all-time Artistic Outpost favorites and I've always love this vintage stamp of the young man showing off his catch. The rest of the stamps used here are from the Route 66 plate.
I had the tag already stained left over from another project. I used it to absorb left over stains in colors Peacock Feathers, Squeezed Lemonade and a bit of Mustard Seed. I added some sponging to the edges , first with Vintage Photo and then with Jet Black archival. Then, using black archival, I stamped the images from Route 66. I used the Baroque die to cut the corrugated cardboard and sponged the edges with Vintage Photo and then with black archival. Then it was coated with Clear Rock Candy distress crackle paint.
I copied the style of Tim Holtz's Enameled Tags and made my own for the Route 66 tag. The tag was cut from white CS with the Tiny Tabs and Tags die. I stamped the Route 66 in Jet Black archival and using a toothpick, I applied small dots and dashes and edged it with black paint dabber and when dry, I gave it two coats of UTEE.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoy the hop!
