Hi there! It’s Cheiron here and today I am playing with some of my favorite Dina Wakley stamps and paints to create a fun Father’s day card. Don’t worry if you’ve never made a card before, it’s as easy as creating a journal page or tag and it’s a piece of artwork you can pass on to the recipient! I’m “inking” up a lot of stamps with paint for this project using foam daubers, and as I work I make sure to wash the paint off of my stamps so it does not dry on them.
Step 1: To create the background, I started by taking a Dina Wakley Media Brush and randomly applying Lapis paint to a Distress Heavystock panel.
Step 2: To add some interest and texture to the painted panel, I placed the Mesh stencil over it and removed some of the paint through the stencil with a baby wipe.
Step 3: I keep building up the background layer by adding a stamped image from the Funky Journal Shapes set using Elephant paint. Repeat this step to create a pattern. Use Cheddar paint to add some more images, this time from the Assorted Borders set.
Step 4: Take the Circles Paint Comb and apply lime paint to it with a foam blending tool. Spray the paint with some water using a Distress Sprayer.
Step 5: Use the painted stencil to make a print on your panel by pressing the stencil onto your panel.
Step 6: Stamp and cut an image from the Scribbly Fellas set. Color it in with Distress Crayons, and then go over the colored image with a water brush.
Step 7: HINT: To create a skin tone color, I scribbled lemon, tangerine, umber and white onto my craft sheet and added some water and mixed them together to get a skin tone color. Cut out the Scribbly Fella..
Step 8: Paint a piece of Distress Mixed Media Heavystock with Cheddar paint then stamp “DAD” with the Scribbly Alphabet using Jet Black Archival Ink. Cut out the letters.
Step 9: Stamp the heart from the Collaged Hearts Set using Fuchsia paint. Cut out the hearts.
Step 10: Once everything is stamped and cut out, adhere it to your card with Adhesive foam, and add a Tim Holtz Small Talk sticker.
