Last Project for RubberMoon Design Team

This post concludes my participation on the RubberMoon Design Team. It has been a wonderful opportunity to become familiar with some very talented artists. The challenge to find innovative ways to use rubber stamps has encouraged me to experiment and reach beyond my comfort zone.  That brings me to today’s post.

Needing a tag to attach to a door prize I am donating to a Master Gardener’s event, I discovered a perfect way to recycle spent car air fresheners. They are sturdy and just the right size!

I traced the spent air freshener card onto painted paper and stamped Handmade by Chrystel and RubberMoon Art Set Stamp. I cut this out and colored the stamped brushes with Derwent Intense Pencils. Next I ironed a piece of painted paper to freezer paper (to give it stability in the printer) and printed in The Underground and the blog address from my computer. After peeling away the freezer paper, I traced the air freshener card onto this paper and cut out. I adhered the papers to the air freshener card with Studio Multi-medium (love this stuff!)
After the medium was completely dry, I smoothed the edges with an emery board, inked the edges and attached a piece of twine.

 Love it when an idea works out!



Last week I received a gift package from RubberMoon for my participation on the team. It included 4 stamps and a Red Rubber Palette.  I used one of the stamps to make a card for Operation Write Home. I cut the beehive background with my Silhouette Portrait. I also used the Portrait to cut the hexagon sentiment piece, which I stamped with Just Bee and Happy.
I tried out the RedRubber Palette and can see where it will be quite useful in creating texture on painted papers.

Thanks Kristen and Brenda for inviting me to be part of this awesome team!
