New England Stamper: Warhol and Whitewash

April 30, 2010

Warhol and Whitewash

It feels like a million years since I stamped - it's really only 3 weeks, but it feels like forever! There's been a lot going on with family visiting from overseas, a party, home renovations, school vacation etc. You get the picture!

I made this card for Reasons to Stamp on Gingersnaps today. It's our monthly features which lists a whole bunch of reasons to stamp a project during the upcoming month. This is to commemorate Memorial Day at the end of the month.

I used two TJ techniques - Warhol and Sanded Whitewash. The stars background was created by painting a piece of really rust c/stock with gesso, running it through an embossing folder (once dry) and sanding the surface.

The military man was stamped on really rust and more mustard c/stock, cut into squares and mounted onto vanilla to create a Warhol effect.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  • Stamps: Hero - Artistic Outpost
  • C/stock: Very vanilla, basic black, really rust & more mustard
  • Ink: black
  • Accessories: Word Sticks - Ideology, black embroidery floss

Beautifully done, Ali! And it's great to see one of Tim's 'charms' used this way.

Great card!! I almost did the same technique but decided to try triple mosaic. I might just have to do a Warhol anyway! Thanks for the inspiration!!
