Timeless Faces Card

Hi there! My name is Jennifer and this is my first featured project for the VLVS DT Blog! I would LOVE it if you would visit my crafting blog located HERE.

I made a card using one of the stamps I received in their Pound O Rubber Pack I got this past month! I ended up getting some really FUNKY stuff in there BUT it's stuff you CAN'T get ANYWHERE else!!! Really unique, rare, and one-of-a-kind rubber stamps!


I ended up getting a few different faces in my pack and at first I wasn't sure what to do with some of them - I'm not much of a girlie-girl after all - but once I stamped this image on test paper the ideas started flying!

I have to admit this is something NEW for me! On many levels! First I not only used several different mediums here including distress ink instead of regular ink and colored pencils, watercolor pencils, craft markers, and art chalks...I also smudged a few spots which I don't usually attempt because I haven't been good at it in the past but it seemed to work here. Another interesting thing about my project here is - the part that looks like a chin is actually how I cut the rubber stamp from the rest of the rubber stamps in my's not actually the chin! It was some stray ink from the left over rubber part of the stamp but I really liked the way it looked after I smudged it so I kept it that way! I'm very pleased with the way the eyes and lips turned out here! The blush is strictly art chalk...again something I have more recently started to tinker with.

Check out the Pound O Rubber HERE! You'll LOVE IT!!!

Many of the girls are going CRAZY over the Miracle Tape...and rightfully-so! I mean, check this out! MIRACLE TAPE!!!

It sticks to EVERYTHING! Foam, plastic, glass, metal, wood, name it! Since I used many layers with this card and used really heavy paper for most of the layers - in addition to it being thick - the Miracle Tape worked AWESOMELY!

I'm so excited to be a part of this team! And I have a new way of looking at Rubber Stamps thanks to this awesome company!

Swing by their online shop or in person next time you are in Vegas! You won't be disappointed!
