Rustic Fragments By Florence

Hi everyone

Today I would like to share with you a card made using the new Rustic Fragments rubber stamp set.

Like many of you, I am a huge fan of the Chocolate Baroque's fragment stamps.  If, this is your first visit to this blog and if you would like to see other fragment stamp sets in the range please click on the link.

These stamps are so versatile and have many uses.
They are ideal for card making, ATCs, Mixed Media projects.
They also compliment other Chocolate Baroque stamps beautifully.

 I have used a very simple version of the serendipity technique in making this card.




To make this card

You will need a piece of thin card or thick paper 15 cm x 15 cm as a backing piece.
Cover the backing piece randomly with small scraps of paper using wet glue to attach the pieces.
Overlap the pieces and build up the collage until you are happy with the design.
Give the whole piece a thin coat of Gesso and leave to dry.
Stamp the images randomly over the collage. 
Cut the collage into 5 cm squares.
Optional:  Highlight any overlapping seems with gold relief wax.
Move and turn the pieces around until you are happy with the layout.
Attach the square tiles to your base card with foam tabs.
Attach the embellishments using glue or silicon.

An Alternative to the above would be to work on a larger piece of paper say, A4 in size.
Add fibers and ephemera to the collage as well as paper.
Stamp and emboss the images to give them more definition.
Using a larger canvas, gives you more choice when cutting out the squares.


Thank you for looking
Happy Stamping
