I love the new StazOn Pigment ink about as much as I love stamping! Finding ways to maximize the use of this mixed media ink would be a big win in my book! How to go about achieving this goal? A stamped collage, of course! Multiple stamps + multiple StazOn Pigment inks = Happy Stamper!
Time: 1 hour
Use stamps and a selection of StazOn Pigment ink to stamp a collage style background on a 6” x 4 ¼” panel of cardstock. Remember to overlap and group images for the best effect.
Apply Memento ink (Cottage Ivy & Teal Zeal) directly to craft matte, add water and then use fan brush to apply ink splatters to panel.
With Piano Black StazOn Pigment ink, stamp the small image of lightbulb onto white cardstock.
Using watercolor method (wet ink on matte), use Memento ink to lightly color lightbulb. Fussy cut image out.
Stamp large lightbulb image onto white cardstock (with Piano Black, StazOn Pigment Ink) and then fussy cut the image out.
Apply StazOn Peacock Feathers ink directly from ink pad to large lightbulb image. Cut image in half, lengthwise.
Stamp the “Shine Bright” sentiment with Piano Black StazOn Pigment Ink.
Make a close trim around the saying (rectangle in shape). Color lightly with Memento (watercolor method).
Apply washi tape to lower portion of the card.
Prep small lightbulb and saying with 3M double sided dimensional tape.
Adhere left half of the large lightbulb image to the top portion of the card, slightly off center. Mount small lightbulb over this image (see card for placement). Adhere saying over the washi tape.
Mount panel to A6 sized card base of white cardstock. Apply black dots to the background with the Tuxedo Black irresistible Pico Embellisher.
