Winters Grip

We still have the white stuff in piles from the storms in early January and 8″ more inches predicted for the coming week. I guess it is not too late to create with snowflakes. The circle was created by using my wet finger to wet the rim of a juice glass that I dabbed in blue shimmer flakes then place it on white text vellum. Added the tiniest of water spritz to get the color to activate but not move much. Once dry I stamped the swirl in blue ink then versa mark and heat set tinsel. Using a odd circles stencil I sponged more blue ink around outer edge of the circle. The snowflake corners were cut on the Silhouette in white layering cs and attached. I sponged them lightly with the blue ink then added Stickles in Star Dust (my new favorite). The silver frame is achieved by rubbing just the edge of the paper along the versa mark pad then adding tinsel embossing powder then heat set. This was then mounted on white cs base. Sentiment was created on the SIlhouette then mounted on white mat layer then attached.

Winter is still here

It is time for me to start dusting off the spring stuff cuz I am about done with winter. This stamp has the three tulips which I stamped in my MISTI then turned the paper. Not in a jig but rather random positions on 90°. After using water colors for the focal tulip, I stamped sentiment in foiling ink then heat set gold. Did not take very well so I over stamped in black ink. Used gold sticker paper for mat layer and all is on white cs base. Don’t get me wrong, I love the look of foiling, it is just not for me so the added shimmer comes for gold sticker paper.

New Swirl Stamp

Every home should have fairy dust sprinkled on it every once in a while. Don’t you think? Here my scene was created with the houses and fairy digi stamps arranged with Silhouette then printed on text vellum. They were colored with glitter pens and water colors. I added the bg colors with sponging then masked a circle so I could paint white acrylic for the moon. Added texture for the moon with water colors then silver gel pen around the outer edge. Last thing was to use my new swirl stamp around the edges and then added in glitter pens and white gel pen dots. All was then mount on white cs base.

Fox in the Woods II

My stamp buddy Gayle sent me some much appreciated die cuts. This one, in black cs, came with a fairy and other woodland insets that I snipped. The bg is smooched Oxide Sprays in yellow, green and gray on glass mat then picked up on white copy paper text vellum. I made the mistake of gluing the frame on before adding the sponged hills, stamped trees and foreground foliage. Oh well, it worked out okay, just would have been easier before the frame was there. My fox is free digi that I printed on white copy paper text vellum then fussy cut and water colored. Added some white gel pen dots and highlights then used quickie glue pen dots that got green glitter added. Piece is mounted on white cs base.

New Stamp

This was in the order from I Brake for Stamps and this new stamp actually has a large cat on the bottom (he did not fit in my design). I stamped on copy paper text vellum with water mark pad then heat set in platinum. Using my water color pencils and water brush to add color. Trimmed to fit behind the Silhouette cut frame then mounted on white water color paper. Mounted on gray mat layer, then white cs base.
