Acrylic Stamping Technique


I promised that once I’d received my Vintage Tickets stamp set from Inspired by Stamping I would finish off my original card using the ‘stamping with acrylic paint’ technique. (If you missed that post, you can see it here.) They arrived Monday, but I didn’t get around to stamping. (Yikes!)

I’m very happy with the finished card. The technique is exactly the same as the first card, and I actually stamped both cards at the same time. I used the same distress colours (Peacock Feathers and Dusty Cordoroy) on both the card background and the vintage tickets.  I stamped the tickets with white embossing powder, but it does give a different effect to the white acrylic paint.

I did wonder, so decided to try it out.

Here’s the same card before the vintage tickets were added:


As you can see, adding the tags does finish off the card nicely. (You can see a better picture of the great background in this photo.)

  1. Love the colors you used in this one. Reminds me of a peacock feather indeed! It is beautiful!

  2. Thanks Verna! These are the colours they used in the magazine, and because I was trying to replicate it, I decided to use the same as the article.

  3. Thanks so much, Mynnette. These two are my most favourite of all the distress ink colours available.

  4. Thanks, Susan! The tickets were a good addition, but didn’t give the card a cluttered look. Perfect!

  5. WOW!!! this is awesome and you are right the tickets really finish off the card 🙂 So glad you shared with us on IBS.
