Stampers Anonymous Mini Blueprints 10 - Let's Have A Beer

Hi I'm sharing a card made with Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Mini Blueprints 10 stamp set...there are so many images to choose from in this set...

 but let's start off with Beer
I trimmed down Distress Watercolor card to be slightly smaller than the A2 card blank, smooshed Hickory Smoke and Antique Linen Distress Oxide inks on to my non stick craft mat, dragged the panel through the ink, dried, spritzed and pounced to pick up the remaining droplets of ink. I stamped the Beer Word image with Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide randomly over the background and heat set with Ranger Super Fine Clear Embossing Powder. I die cut a Sizzix Framelits circle from the panel and stamped the beer mug and pretzel images with Black Soot Distress Oxide on to the circle.
I then stamped the images several times on to Distress Watercolor Card and fussy cut.
I colored the edges of the panel and the circle with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide and fixed the circle back in place with 3D foam. I coloured the beer mugs and pretzels with Vintage Photo using a detailer brush, popped the foam on the beer mugs up with 3D foam and fixed them in place over the original stamped images. I then stamped the Beer Word image with Vintage Photo, cut out the word section and fixed over the background image.
I decided to add another pretzel to balance things out, cut out the word images and fixed them over the original stamping.
I used the detailer brush to drag the ink from the edges to colour the Beer image, added Life Quotes Remnant Rubs and Chit Chat Stickers.  I attached the card to a panel of Idea-ology Burlap Textured Surfaces.

And if beer isn't your tipple, I'll be back tomorrow to share a Wine Mini Blueprints card.
Toodle-oo for now

  4. A totally brilliant card Kath, I love the gorgeous background colours and the whole design is wonderful! The 'salt' you added to the pretzels gives them such a realistic look!
