Hand Colored and More

The image is a printed digi colored with copics then sprayed with shimmer spray. Mat Layered on pp from stash. The sentiments were cut on Silhouette with white layering weight cs. I then smeared modeling paste on them. One in black and the other with white that got color burst in green added. Once dry they got sprayed with the clear shimmer spray for sparkle. Birthday is popped up and the doodling is white gel pen. The centers of the sunflowers got some white gel pen doodling as well.

CAS MIX UP: Embossing with dies +Mixed media (gel plate, stamping & splatter)

The Paper Players: TicTacToe Metallic+Embossing+Thanks

Challenge Up Your Life: Autumn Mood

Krafty Chicks: Stamp Act

The idea for the CAS Mix Up was to use your dies to dry emboss. I did use the technique and embossing machine sandwich but the piece I used to emboss was Silhouette cut design from a single stamp that I layered. You can kind of see the embossing around the stamped leaves. BG is red and gold acrylic paint brayed on gel plate and paint picked up with white layering weight cs then black and gold splatter. Stamped my leaves with masking between stamping in black ink. Sentiment is stamped in black on copy paper and mat layered on scrap bg piece. Center of tag is popped up but the ends are adhered to card, giving it a kind of bow effect. Nice complement to the dry embossing of the leaves (which does really show up in real life).

Sweet Stampin: Paper Piecing

Double Trouble: Something not a image of a phone but the word is in the quote.

Allsorts: Going Round in Circles

This is a combination of using scrapes and wanting to try a new technique. The previous card left me with the shimmer blue in the center of white cs. That made my sea, now for the sand. I took white modeling paste and tinted it with Kraft reinker. This thick paste I dabbed the scratchier side of a kitchen sponge and then dabbed that on the lower half of the cs. Used a die cut for the flip flops, which I placed back down. I only wanted the hint of the foot prints in the sand. I then cut the die again in black and paper pieced the thongs. Added the sentiment and sun printed on tissue paper that was glued on. The line between the quote and author is stamped in black ink. Piece was mat layered on navy cs for just the upper corner and all was added to white cs base. I did add a few white dots in gel pen for sea foam, pupil of eyes and to tone down the black thongs.

Simon Says Wednesday: Anything Goes

I had intended to create a mountain scene but not this one. When I put the stencil down and added blue color burst on a piece of textured brown paper the mountains turned green. While the spray was wet on the stencil I mopped it up with a napkin mostly to keep the stencil clean but then decided to place the stencil back down on white cs and dab with the wet napkin. Yea, textured mountains. I then inverted the stencil and sprayed with yellow shimmer to create sunset. Stamped the sentiment in black ink and trimmed the piece. Mat layered on black cs that was dry embossed with linen texture. Mounted all on white cs base.

My husband sends more thanks you cards then I do so I am always trying to keep him in stock.

Digi with tons of stuff

Little Red Wagon: Digi Do

Fusion: Dragonfly

Simon Says Monday: Beautiful Botanicals

I printed the digi on white Paper Vellum and colored with copics. Trimmed to fit and adhered sentiment and greenery that were cut on Silhouette. The bg paper is a leftover from using it as surface protector during stenciling with acrylic paints. Added the swirls through stencil with black modeling paste and then the punched dragonflies adhered. Mounted on white cs base.
