Abstract 04 by Darkroom Door~

Hi guys!
I have been creating with the newly released set called Abstract 04
by Darkroom Door.  I created a set of cards, using this stamp,
plus an art journal page and book markers!!!  It has so many possibilities.
Kinda of reminds me of tree bark~do you see it? 

First card set~

My inspiration for this card set was a squirrel hole in the middle of the
 Abstract 04  stamp.  Pretty much all I thought of~ 
Stamp the Abstract 04 twice on white cardstock with brown ink. 
That is the background~ 
Next create the hole by stenciling
 one of the complete circles from the Polka Dots stencil by 
 Darkroom Door.  I thought that was perfect!  Add the leaves from the Carved Leaves Vol.1 set using green ink. Mat on green cardstock
then a folded white card.  Stamp the Robin Bird with several different
tones of brown and trim out.  Cut off  bird over hang and adhere to card front.
Add sentiment (Sentiment Stamp/Friendship). Splat with black ink to complete the card set.
Second project~book markers!

These are really easy and super cute!! Kids love to make them (well my grands do)!
Stamp four Abstract 04 images on white cardstock, using different colors of ink.
 Trim in strips.  I used the medium stencils (Creativity and Awesome) for
 the words down the middle of the Abstract 04 stamp.  The small
Wildflowers stencil was used on one of the examples also.  The Polka Dots
stencil was used for the matching circle and is where the hole was punched.
The twine was added and black ink was splattered to complete the book
markers.  Just in time for school!!
Project three~ Art Journal Page

This project is the Grand-finale of my projects using all FOUR
of the Abstract stamps.  The background is created on a separate
piece of cardstock and cut down to fit the journal.  I wanted clear stamping 
and my journal doesn't allow that ~Each Abstract stamp was stamped ( in a coordinating green/blue ink
shade) on the pages.  I used Distress Oxides to stamp and make big
ink splats.  The original piece is stamped on watercolor paper with Archival
 Jet/Black ink.  It is colored in with Distress Oxide inks.  Artist Brushes was
stamped along side the ART word (med.stencil/creativity). Other stamps
 used are from the Vintage Office set.   Ink splats were added to
complete the pages.

Thanks for stopping by~
