I believe

  Hello everyone, 

Welcome to the blog where today I am sharing a postcard.  I love rainbow colours so today I went for those. I never tire of them. 


Here's how I made it:


First I coloured the background by dunking it in ink smooshed mixed with a spray of water on my craft sheet. I dried it in between colours.


Next I added some stencilling with white acrylic paint and using the same paint and a brayer I added some white here and there on the card. 


Next I stamped the background using the same inks and a black Versafine. 


I then stamped the lady on the card and on a piece of blank book paper. I also stamped the sentiment. With a piece of cut and dry foam I inked the edged of the card using Versafine.  


I used some washitape to ground her and added a little bit in the right top corner to balance the card. 
Lastly I added the lady and the sentiment. 



I have used the following stamps:


Other materials:
MM card stock
Distress Oxide inks
Versafine Clair Ink 
White acrylic paint (Amsterdam)
AALL & Create Washi tape
book paper

Thank you for stopping by today !

Pen Holder with Tina Walker Ladies ► Majo

 Hello Friends,

 it’s time for another AMF Project:


*
ART MEETS FUNCTION*

 


I created a penholder with 3 sides this time using the fabulous images from Tina Walker.




 

I inked the panels with different colors of Pink and added some texture with a stencil. After stamping the ladies, I bleached their faces and added more ink to the “hair” and their lips.

 I stamped different images and added them to the panel. Distressing the edges finished my creation. I will fill it up with sweets to give to a friend to use it as a pen holder or the storage of beauty pencils.

Some close ups ....





I used the following stamps:

The ladies from plate 1523 

Sentiments:

This was not my dream

Why fit in ......

Inhale the future .....


 Have a wonderful Sunday, stay safe and find time to craft.

Luv ya ♥

Steampunk Swan Ship by Tracy Blackwolf

 Hello all !! Hope you are doing well.

Here is my card for the blog this week~ hope you enjoy.


For this card I used a multi colored ink pad and a sponge to pounce on the color for half the card. Cover the other half with a scrap paper to keep clean. Then I used a stencil that had various sizes of circles and sponged some blue color through that. Next I sprayed some yellow for the sky. The spray made my circles run so I dabbed with a paper towel.


While that dried, I stamped the swan boat and fussy cut it out. I then colored and painted the image with alcohol inks and pearl ex water colors. I grabbed a resin wing from my stash and painted it with rose gold acrylic paint and added  a blue spritz of ink to match the body.

I used silver and gold sparkle gel pens for the spokes and wires. I also added some glimmer spots with the silver pen. I decided where to place the swan boat and then stamped the tentacles before gluing anything down. I also stamped the moon phases in the sky at that time. When it all looked as I wised, 
I glued it down with hot glue and some foam tape.
I attached the final card to some black cardstock, added an eye to the swan and called it done!
It was a fun card to make- Until next time- stay crafty

Steampunk swan ship     18160
Tentacles       19516

I wish my life had background music .... ► Majo

 

 Good morning, my friends

 Today I show you another addition to my canvas quartet, which I started as a triple.

 


 I started it last year and three are already hanging on the wall of my studio.

 

I started with distress ink in warm red and yellow and left out a part in the middle. I stamped the lady on tissue paper and used Mod Podge Matte to adhere it to my canvas.

 I used the same colors distress ink to color her dress and hair.  

After stamping the sentiment, I cut it apart to fit the space on the canvas.

  For more interest I spritzed some ink on top, added the wooden charms, the metal ring and string and ready is my little canvas to join the other three.

 




I used the following stamps:

 Hands on Face

Sentiment from plate 827

 The stamps I used on the older wall hangers:

Lower right:
Fed-up Vintage Lady

She was a dreamer

 Both from plate 1459

 Lower left:

Gibson Girl Hands up

 Upper left:

Lady in Curlers

Sentiment “Say NEW NORMAL …..”

(From plate 1524)



 Have a wonderful start into the new year 2022.


Luv ya all
