New England Stamper: Triple Challenge Card & Altering Magazines

September 30, 2009

Triple Challenge Card & Altering Magazines

We did a 'Once in a Blue Moon' challenge today on Gingersnaps. Basically, you combine two or more previously issued challenges on the blog.  I combined the Journeys challenge, the Tags challenge and the yellow, brown and green challenge to make this Autumn card.  [The stamp is from Innovative Stamp Creations.]

Happiness is a Journey

The background is a page I tore from a magazine.  I removed some the surface with metal polish and sandpaper.  And then added highlights with acrylic paint.  Here's how it started out - I used the center page with the ferns:


I've been playing with magazines all month - here are a couple of tags I created in my journal:

Chicken image transfer

The background was created by lifting off the surface with packing tape and then sponging on some ink. The chicken is a packing tape transfer from the same magazine.


The background on this tag was created by first sanding and then applying acrylic paint.  The butterflies (Oxford Impressions) were stamped with Perfect Medium and covered with Perfect Pearls.


Finally this little robin was created by rubbing the surface with metal polish and over stamping with some text.  

None of it's rocket science, but it sure is a lot of fun to take old magazines and turn them into something new.
