Stamped Scrapbook Page with Airbrushing

Tonight I wanted to play with a new stamp set, as well as make a scrapbook page for my little guy.  He doesn't get enough pages just about him.  It's my fault. I'm so drawn to the girly-girly embellishments, and with double the girls in this household he seems to be getting the short end of the pages completed.

So here's one for Cameron.

And of course, I have to throw in some fun techniques.  Besides having a blast coloring these images with these colors:

  • Shorts/Shoes: B12/B14/B16
  • Shirt: YR24/YR65
  • Skin: E00/E01/E21/E13. Mouth: R20/R83/R85
  • Hair: Y23/YR24/E55
  • Elephant: W3, W5, W7, R81
  • ABS: Y23, E09, BG72

I airbrushed the images after cutting them with the Spellbinders' Nestabilities scalloped rectangle.

When you leave the image in the die while you airbrush, you will get that self-masked white edge when you take it out of the die.  I've placed the die here to illustrate.

On this page, I was having a hard time finding solid colored cardstock for my stamped images that coordinated well with the patterned paper.  So I cheated.  I cut out the pieces and then airbrushed over the edges with a better coordinating color.  I used E09 & W3 over the terracotta piece.  And BG72 over the teal piece.  You can click on either picture for a closer look.  I placed an original scrap of paper next to the finished pieces for comparison.

I used the Idea-ology Tiny Attacher to secure the ribbon ends at the edges of the layout.  I love those tiny staples!

Which brings me to 'the prize box'.

Today I'm placing an Advantus Tim Holtz ™ Tiny Attacher into the box.


Can you believe we're only 3 prizes in so far?  And yet – it's already a pretty great prize!

Ok, back to the layout.  Tools used in today's project:

  • Patterned cardstock by October Afternoon (I think!)
  • Black letter stickers 'Thickers' by American Crafts
  • Times Alphabet cream chipboard letters and numbers by Prima
  • Printed twill ribbon by Prima
  • Digital printed journaling embellishment from Corina Neilson, Illusive collection
  • Copic Markers and ABS-1
  • Glimmer Mist in Old Lace by Tattered Angels over a swirl screen (it's subtle, but you can see it best on the lower right of the overall picture).
  • Elephant stamp K842 by DRS Designs
  • Playday stamps D1360 by CTMH Co.

Thanks for reading.  I'm planning on an entire day of laundry tomorrow – so I hope to come up for Facebook between loads.  :)  Oh and pardon any typos.  My keyboard is sticking every now and then.  I believe an errant splash of Diet Coke is the culprit.  Oops!

Type to you soon.
