Guest Designer : Sandy!!

This month I have the distinct pleasure of sharing the work of TWO Guest Designers with you :) I may have flopped some words in an email and scheduled two designers for the same month, but it turns out to be a real treat for our readers!!

Welcome our 2nd November 2012 Guest Designer... Sandy Alsfasser


Sandy says "Mixed media is my favorite art form. Searching for just the right color paint or stamp pad and item to finish a piece is all part of the adventure.  Each piece fills in a piece of a puzzle where the outcome is unpredictable until the last piece is in place.  I'm always searching for new techniques and new altered art projects and love playing with dyes, inks, and stamps.  Viva Las VegaStamps! quirky stamps always make me smile - please feel free to check out my blog to see what I'm up to."

Today she has this magnificent card and envelope for us:

From plate893 she used:
Large Wasp
and the Flying Watch
She's also used

About her project:
The background on the stamped card front was created on white card stock using three colors of Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Pumice Stone, Weathered Wood and Stormy Sky.  Words, watch, Albert Einstein and hot air balloon were stamped with StazOn's Midnight Blue ink pad; and the flies were stamped using StazOn's Jet Black ink pad.  An extra hot air balloon was stamped, trimmed and colored with a yellow highlighter to mimic a light bulb going off over Al's head.  His hair was colored in with a white opaque pen from Ranger; another clock face was stamped on white card stock, outside colored with a red Sharpie marker and affixed on top of original stamped watch with pop dots.  Various areas were then "painted" with Elmer's White Glue and dusted with Martha Stewart's extra fine crystal glitter (my very favorite go-to glitter) for a more fun look.  This sheet was then attached to a slightly larger piece of navy blue card stock using double sided tape.  Navy background card stock was attached in the same manner to a stock white blank greeting card.


The words "Time flies" were stamped again on the left side inside of the card using Midnight Blue StazOn ink.  Another watch and wings image was also stamped with the Midnight Blue StazOn on an additional piece of the white card stock.  This image was then colored, glittered, cut out and attached to the right inside of the card with a tiny spring coil made from very fine metal beading wire coiled around a pencil and then attached to the card and cut-out with double-sided tape.

 
The red envelope was purchased, stamped on the front, and stamped on the back utilizing the flies and watch once again.  Stamped images were decorated and glittered; and the inside of the envelope was lined with navy card stock to complement the card.  Enjoy!





Give Sandy a big round of applause and leave her some nice comments for taking the time to share her work with us today :)
