Use IT. by Tracy Blackwolf

Hello everyone!

Todays project is an art tag. Enjoy.

Todays tag is a sentiment I'm sure we can all appreciate. 


For this I stamped the Expanding rays in a red chalk ink. It did not come to the edges so I used a paint brush and dabbed it on the ink pad and pulled the color down for a more pleasing effect.

I then used a brown ink pad around all the edges of the tag. I also fussy cut and colored the brains sign.
I put one layer of foam tape on the back of the sign and stuck it on.
I fussy cut the rest of my images and colored them with alcohol markers and layered the backs with foam tape. With the most on the brain so it would stand out pretty far. I bent the fingers of the person for more dimension. The 3D effect doesn't translate well in the photos.
I used some TH stickers for the words and that was it.
Until next time~


Stamps used:
Brains 25 Cents    19899
Detailed brain     19696
Hands lady     4800
Expanding Rays    19896

Other supplies:
TH chit chat stickers
Colorbox chalk inkpad- warm red
Versafine claire- Pinecone, nocturne
Distress spray stain- stormy sky

Halloween-ish card by Cathy

 Hello, all Cathy here with a Halloween-ish card for you today.


                                                                           Stamps Used:

                                                                19563 grunge circles

                                                               19991 Alis Volat Proprits


              


                                    Why I say Halloween-ish because I started out to make a Halloween card and I didn't know what I wanted to use for the main image, so I switched it up a bit. I stamped the grunge circles in an orange and purple distress ink colors around my card base. Then I took my sponge dabber that had brown distress oxide ink on it and used whatever was left on it to go around the card. I splattered some water on it to give it drips.


I decided to make a tag for the front. I took rusty hinge antique linen distress ink to make the tag background. I stamped Alis Volat Proprits with black ink and tore the tag. I edged it with distress inks.


Lastly, I added foam tape to the back of the tag added to the card base.

No Clothes......by Tracy Blackwolf

 Hello everyone!

For todays project I did another page in my art journal...enjoy


For this page, I sprayed some water in the two corners and then dipped my brush in the spray stain and gently tapped it where I wanted color. I tipped the book so it would spread but not too much. then I dried it before stamping the various stamps on the color areas.


I dipped my brush in darker colors and tapped it against my finger to get the splatters. The last color I splattered is a light gold you can see when the light hits it. 

For the ladies, I fussy cut just around them leaving a background for painting so they would stand out more once on the page.

I found some iridescent wrap scraps and decided it would add a festive touch to the scene. I heated it with my heat tool to make it not so fluffy so my girls would sit better. I used foam tape on the back of them but I used hot glue to stick them to the page, I didn't want it popping off later.
I used my trusty TH snarky Quotes and also glued them on with hot glue.
And that is it my friends! Hope you enjoyed!

5 Ladies       18537
Bubble wrap texture    19566
Chevron banner    19042
Writing triangles    19571

Other Supplies:

Poe's Party Hat by Cathy N

 Hello, all Cathy here with a semi-Halloween card for you. I have been in the Halloween mood for the last week or so and I just had to make something for it.


                                                                    Stamped Used:

                                                                       19900 Poe

                                                                      17545 grunge writing background

                                                                      19991 Alis Volat Proprits


I started out with some orange distress ink and stamped grunge writing background randomly around the edges of my card base. I then took some brown ink and inked around the edges and splattered some water around to give it a grunge look.

 

I had made this background earlier with some white paste that I added some black ink to it, and it mad it gray. I tore the edges and edged it with some gray ink. 


Next, I stamped Poe and cut him out. After that I stamped the wings from Alis Volat Proprits in the same orange ink I used for the background and cut them out. I found a top hat in my digital collage images and cut it out so Poe could where it. I added the wings to the hat and then the hat to Poe and I added foam tape so it would stick to the texture of the background.

MAY YOU TOUCH DRAGONFLIES - by Fran Chalmers

Hello everyone.  

Today I have made a simple CAS card. This wasn't my first attempt as I did start it with a coloured background, but decided that the stamp was too delicate and needed a plain, white background.


I stamped the image straight onto the card blank with Versafine Clair Nocturn.


 I coloured the image with Kuretake pens, then went over the moon with a Wink of Stella (clear) to give it a bit of sparkle.



I added some silver glitter pen to the fairy's wings.


I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Clair Very Peri to compliment the fairy's wings.


Lastly, I went round the edges of the card with silver glitter pen



Stamps Used:

Fairy on Moon 12512

May you touch dragonflies 19753

Other items used:

Versafine Clair in Nocturn and Very Peri

Kuretake pens

Silver glitter pen

Wink of Stella

Summer by Tracy Blackwolf

 Hello everyone!

For my blog project today, I did a page in my art journal-enjoy.


I started by doing the blue corners first. I sprayed several spray stains and then sprayed water and kept alternating until I was happy.. Then I did the yellow and red. again using water to thin and move around the colors.


Next I used my pearl ex watercolor pallet and painted several colors on here and there until I was happy. I love the shimmer of the pearl ex.

While that dried, I stamped and fussy cut the swimsuit lady out and painted her. Next I stamped the various images where I wanted them- making an l shape on the page. I added the seahorse washi tape. I used two layers of foam tape behind the girl since I wanted her to stand out nicely. Added a die cut green sprig and then done! I used the chain link fence stamp as fish net- it works pretty good but then it mostly got covered up.





Stamps:
Lady swimsuit back       2411
Jagged chain link fence     19140
Grunge circles            19563
Grunge Thermometer    20691
Writing and scribble collage     20695

Other supplies:
Distress spray stains
Pearl ex watercolor pallet
Versa claire inks- Warm breeze, morning mist, nocturne
Alexandra renke washi tape seahorses
