For the next three days sit back and enjoy projects from this week's guest designer Sherry Cheever. You are going to love what she has designed for us this week.
Hello! Sherry Cheever here today and I’m very honored and excited to be the Guest Designer for JustRite Papercraft this week. My first project uses Just A Note Vintage Sentiment Tags in Spring colors, because I’m so tired of cold and snowy weather.
When I first saw this stamp set, I immediately thought of the faux batik technique and knew that is how I wanted to use this set. A piece of watercolor paper was die cut/embossed with Spellbinders 5x7 Matting Basics A. While the paper was still in the die, the fountain pens were stamped randomly on the background in VersaMark and then embossed in clear. Using the wrinkle free distress technique the background (and the card base) were colored in pink, blue and green inks. Once dry, the clear embossing was removed with an iron, creating the faux batik.
The background was inserted back into the die template and the edges were lightly sponged with linen ink.
The sentiment “hello” was stamped in olive on a scrap piece of the background paper and then die cut/embossed with Spellbinders Framed Tags One. The sentiment was trimmed away and mounted with foam on another piece of white that was also die cut/embossed with the same die templates. The seam binding ribbon was dyed with a combination of the blue and green inks. A white panel was die cut/embossed from watercolor paper using Spellbinders 5x7 Detailed Scallops, to separate the two wrinkle free distress panels.
More information on the techniques used can be found on the tutorial page of my blog, Walkin’ on the BAD Side!
