It's my day today as a guest designer on the Rubber Dance blog! I'm very happy to share with you my Artist Trading Block. I used the Travel stamp set to create it. I really love the stamps! On the Rubber Dance Blog you can find gorgeous Posts and lots of tutorials. Don't miss anything and jump over to their Blog and also to the YouTube Channel .
Hier kommt die Anleitung zum Würfel:
Here's the tutorial on how I created the Block:
Die Streifen falzt Ihr dann bei: 1/2", 3", 51/2", 8".
First of all you need two pieces of craft cardstock that measure 8 1/2 inch by 2 1/2 inch.
You need to scor both of them at: 1/2", 3", 51/2", 8".
Before the block will be build it needs to be painted and stamped. I started with an irregular layer of gesso.
After this is dry I paint with my Gelato® Chocolate and blend the color with my finger.
Before I start stamping I distress my background using a stencil (Tim Holtz Speckles) and a baby wipe. On the areas covered with gesso the Gelato color will come of if you wipe with the baby wipe through the stencil. After that I started stamping with Archival Ink Coffee.
Jetzt kann der Würfel zusammen gebaut und verziert werden:
After I colored with some Distress Inks I put the block together.
Den Kompass hab ich ausgeschnitten und mit Distress Ink Mustard Seed und goldenem Glitzerkleber verziert. Die Blumen sind Stanzschablonen von Marianne Design.
I fuzzy cut the compass, colored it with Distress Ink Mustard Seed and added some golden Stickles.
