Christmas Joy

I had this idea of joy in my head and found the linear form as a Silhouette file. I disassembled it and connect the letters in a free fall. Cut them out of white cs then dabbed black gesso for a very flat black digi. Fussy cut white sticker paper to cover the homespun filigree such that the sticky side held the paper in place plus I could then add glitter to those centers. Needles were in my stash as was the plaid. Cut two ovals and the frame with Silhouette and connected at the side to form the card base.

More falling leaves

I had these leaves leftover from the previous project so I sponged orange and purple ink on the backs arranged them on a bg piece with trees stamped along with sentiment in brown ink. Mounted on plaid pp that is on colored pp with wood grain embossing. Added the Silhouette cut happy along white splatter. Once mounted on white cs base I added water color pens dots on trees for leaves. Once all put together I did not like the look of the leaves so I used a gold gel pen to color the tops. It did not want to stick to the white embossing so the outline and stitching lines still shine through. Now it is done.

Leaves with Fairy visit

This bg is white cs with sponged acrylic paint in yellow and red. It literally was a piece of a damp sponge that swirled the paint that was placed directly on the paper. Once dry I added the gold shimmer paste through a flower stencil then stamped leaves and script in black and gray ink. Stamped then heat embossed the sentiment in white then rubbed edges of the piece with black modeling paste. The leaves were also heat embossed in white on ivory vellum then fussy cut. Attached with foam tape and edges trimmed. Fairy is a digi that was printed on white text vellum shimmer added to wings, then heat set clear embossing paste after fussy cutting. All was mounted on white cs base in a mini slimline size. Once all done I added black and white splatter with gel pens in various sized. This gives me more control where the dots end up.

Safari Antelope

For one of the last of summer creations (I am so ready for fall), I stamped this African antelope with the floral spray on white text vellum. After water coloring I dry embossed to create linen effect. Next was adding glossy accents to the heart and glitter glue to flowers. Mounted on green mat layer then white cs base. Used the green cs trimmings to create corner interest.

Family of Fairy Pods

I can hear the sounds of the fairy wings as they flutter from pod to pod. The bg is the mask I used to color my gel plate with fall colors by brayer with ink then splatter with water colors. Did NOT turn out but the mask was worthwhile. Used a trimmed piece from the sheet I used to clean my brayer to fill the circle. Stamped the pods on white text vellum that had been cut on the Silhouette, then water colored. Added highlights in marker, and paint pen trimmed to fit then attached. Sentiment was Silhouette then water colored and then added glossy accents. Small sentiment is strip from my stash that is popped up. Once mounted on white cs base it needed something so I added lines with colored pencil and pulled the color with water brush.
