Mother's Day - Stamped Acrylic Mixed Media Board

Mother's Day Stamped Acrylic Card by Dana Tatar for Tando Creative

Hi friends! Dana here today sharing the stamped Acrylic Mixed Media Board I created for the Mother's Day theme this week. I absolutely love experimenting with different mediums on acrylic. I used the new ColorBox ColoriQue by Lisa Marie Jimenez line from Clearsnap to color the stamped images on this board.

How to Stamp on Acrylic with ColorBox Archival Dye Ink by Dana Tatar

Step 1: Stamp a flower pattern onto the acrylic board using black archival dye ink. Turn the stamp while working to create a more interesting design. Use a heat tool to help dry the ink. Note: I was able to use an unmounted rubber stamp for this project because of the clear acrylic base. I positioned the inked stamp on my work surface and then pressed the acrylic board onto the stamp. I avoided overlapping the stamped images easily because I could see through the board.

Step 2: Apply several colors of ColoriQue to a craft mat. Use a paintbrush to apply ColoriQue in and around the stamped design. Note: Apply ColoriQue to the BACK of the acrylic board. You don't want to paint over the beautiful stamped design you added in the previous step.

Here is what the back of my board looked like after painting, before embellishing. You can mix different shades of ColoriQue together on the craft mat or directly on the board to create a more life-like effect.

Step 3 (optional): Dye seam binding ribbon with dye ink spray. Insert the ribbon into a plastic bag, spray mist into the bag and scrunch to spread the color. Dry the ribbon with a heat tool. Note: If you have a nice bright piece of ribbon in an accent color that coordinates with your chosen paint palette, skip this step.
