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

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

Simple tag - paper planes

Hi everyone,

It's me again with a new tag for you.

I recently cleaned my stencil with some Distress Stain spray in prize ribbon on it on a piece of watercolor paper. When I was thinking about what to creat for today's post, this paper caught my eye and I cut a tag as well as some smaller rectangles from it.
If you don't have a paper like this ready on your desk, you can always start with doing some reverse stenciling or use a patterned paper instead.

With a dark blue ink I stamped the row of numbers onto some spots of the tag and parts of the typeset scallop onto the rectangles. Then I distressed the edges of the rectangles a bit and inked them as well as the tag's edges themselves with some black ink.


I stamped the paper plane as well as a matching text onto watercolor paper and cut it out. I inked the edges of the plane with a black marker and the quote with a blending tool.
Then I assembled the tag by gluing down the rectangles, the plane and the quote and added everything to a base cut from black cardtock. As a finishing touch I added a ribbon.

Stamps used:
Row of Numbers (20170) https://vlvstamps.com/rows-of-numbers-1-x-4-1-4.html
Typeset Scallop (20163) https://vlvstamps.com/typeset-scallop-2-1-4-x-4.html
Paper Airplane (20409) https://vlvstamps.com/paper-airplane-1-1-4-x-2.html
Fold your worries (20407) https://vlvstamps.com/fold-your-worries-1-1-4-x-2-3-4.html

Other material:
- Canson watercolor paper
- Distress Spray Stain (prize ribbon)
- Archival ink (jet black, seafarer)
- stencil (Studio Light: Art by Marlene, out of this world #46)
- ribbon


This is (at least for now) my last post on the blog. After two years in the VLVS inspiration team, it's time for some new adventures. But I'm sure we will meet each other from time to time in their Facebook group.

All the best for 2022! :)

Hello All!! So Sorry for the delay- seems I have come down with an illness. So much for holiday plans....

Any way, here is my blog for today. A quick and festive card.



I used a tag and sprinkled some brushos on around three sides. I used black and Cobalt Blue. Then I sprayed the same area with two colors of disstress spray stain.



Then I Dabbed away the excess ink with a paper towel, and stamped the image in black using a lot of the white area. I also stamped sky of stars using a multi colored pad and stamped the top and bottom of the card. I found some  sparkle sticky acetate in my stash and glued it onto a window frame chip board.  I used foam tape to stand it off  the card.


I used stunning snowflake thinlits and Snowflake 3D Impresslits To give the card a festive seasonal look and glued them on behind and on the corner of the card.


I hope you enjoyed the fun quick card. Good for when you need an extra card for that party you have to get to, Happy What ever you celebrate and peace and love to all!!
