Recently Rubber Stamp Madness had a call for Stamped Collage Cards.... which got me to thinkin' how much I love to make them so today I have one to share with you that I made using Club Scraps Big Deal kit/stamps plus some pages from a vintage Hoyle card game book and a few other bits.
This collage was made on a sheet of mixed media paper that I sprayed with a couple different colors of ink. I then used IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko's Vintage Creative Medium (more about that later) to add bits and pieces of a few inside pages of the book plus the title page (up in the lh corner).
After the medium had time to dry I started stamping. I started off by stamping the cards in a light grey ink and the tiny suit symbols in a vintage brown ink over the entire card. I then stamped the large and medium suits in Red Geranium and Jet Black Archival Inks. The joker was stamped using Watering Can (dark grey). I stamped the hand of cards using a light blue ink that I aged by adding a layer of Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I finished the whole thing off with a bit of pen work to bring it all together. It really is such fun to stamp a collage! If you have a free moment or two you should give it a try!
Have a wonderful weekend friends!!
