Clearsnap & VLVS! Day FOUR!

Welcome back everyone!!! 


If you've been following along this week you'll know we've been swapping blogs with Clearnsap. They've got fabulous beautiful inks of all types to go with our amazing range of stamps and together we've got a match made in heaven! 


Today I'm sharing three projects with you! 

First up is Kersten with this lovely Goddess Tree Card:

Kersten says : "I made a Goddess Tree card using two stamps from VLVS:  Japanese Tree and Be Your Own Goddess.  I used ColorBox Archival Ink:  Glacier Lake and Wicked Black by Clearsnap to not only sponge pad directly to paper for a green-hued background, but Wicked Ink for the tree and expression.  I used Smooches Pearlized Top Coat to highlight the blossoms on the branches and Ocean Soul to highlight the black borders.  Fun combination of greens and blues!"

Second is Sheri with this whimsical journal page:
Sheri says : "I used : Smooch in Sassy pink, Silver fox, Gold Lame, moonlight, pool, taffy, grape soda, and snickerdoodle. Smooch spritz -galaxy gold. Ink pads: Mix'd Media inx-Jasmine; colorBox Archival Dye-Pinkolicious; and Colorbox Stephanie Barnard Premium Dye Licorice all by Clearsnap.
As well as : Kromecote, Straphmore Visual Journal in the Mix media papers, Miracle Tape, Black cardstock, Ultra high Gloss Embossing powder and stamps from the December Daily plate, and some of the stamps from plate 910.

I basically used everything I was given on this fun little journal page. Made a marble background, and colored with the smooches, Stamped with all three ink pads I was given either on Kromecote, black cardstock, or on the journal page itself. I even edged the page with the Smooch Spritz."

And last today but certainly never least is leslierahye:
From LR: "Create background on book paper with gesso and smooch spritz. Stencil with Mix'd Media Inx and punchnella. Stamp grid background with Mix'd Media Inx. On another piece of Book Paper, stamp March Hare in black archival and watercolor. Fussy cut and adhere to your background. Attach art piece to EcoArtBoard. Trim out board pieces. Sand edges. Ink with Truffle Mix'd Media Inx. Coat entire image with Mod Podge. Glue image back together with E6000. Adhere 3D pieces with E6000. 
VLVS! Stamps:

Mix'd Media Inx Truffle
Smooch Spritz Vanilla Shimmer
Smooch Spirtz Navy Twinkle

Love Kersten'd colours, got the birdhouse thank goodness, and don't trinkets make such a character come alive... I could see him done as jigsaw pieces too :)
