Published: Rubber Stamp Madness
I'm so excited to have a card published in the Spring 2014 edition of Rubber Stamp Madness, the original stamping magazine. It's located on pages 23 and 24 and is titled "Old School and Cool".
Here's how I made it. The background is Tim Holtz's Marbled Stain technique and was created using Distress Stains (Picket Fence, Barn Door, Rusty Hinge, Mustard Seed) and Perfect Pearl Mist (Perfect Pearl).
I stamped the Hero Arts image twice, once directly onto the newly created background and once onto a vintage book page so I could fussy cut out the "typewriter paper". I heat embossed the sentiment with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. Then I cut a slit in the typewriter image where the paper would come through and slid the vintage book paper through. The idea of using buttons and twine as spools of ribbon came to me during a creative burst :-).
I also embellished the inside a bit. A page from a vintage book was used to frame the space for a message. The message area was created using the Cherish punch from Martha Stewart. A bit more twine carries the old fashioned theme from the front to the inside.
I have to add that I was just as excited seeing the label on the magazine. It said "Artist-Anne Temple". How cool is that!
