Adventure Awaits...I Hope!

Well, summer is definitely under way!!  We have heat advisories across the United States so I hope that you all are not only staying safe but staying cool!
The heat isn't really bothering me but this stay at home order is getting to me.  I am used to being out and about whenever and where ever! 
I created a card inspired by my dreams of adventure, I know it is coming soon!!

Stamps used:  Astronaut, The Moon, Adventure Awaits

The background on this card is on black card stock with white gesso and several spacey colored Distress Oxide inks.

All coloring is done with Prisma Colored pencils and blended with Gamsol.

That moon is glorious and with the slightest yellow tint it was perfect to add depth to the card.

Stay safe until we can begin our next adventures.
Until next time...get inky.

God save the vandals

Hello everyone,

For today's VivaLasVegaStamps! post I have made a tag.

I started off by cutting a tag from Mixed Media Paper. I then smooshed Distress Oxide Inks (Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade) on my craft mat, spritzed with water and dunked the tag into it repeatedly, drying in between, until I was happy.
Next I stamped the background using the same inks and a black Versafine Clair. I then used a brayer and white paint to tone it down again and after drying added the modelling paste through a stencil. 
I stamped the focal image on the tag and on book paper, cut her out of the book paper and adhered her over herself :o) . The sentiment and some doodling finished it off.

I used the following stamps:

Other Materials:
Mixed Media Paper
Distress Oxide ink : Spiced Marmalade and Worn Lipstick
Versafine Clair - Nocturne
an AALL & Create stencil 
Modeling paste
Black pen
Book pages

Thank you for stopping by today !

Shit ► Majo

Hello, my friends!

We have Mail Art Mondays, this time I decided to make it a Tuesday …. And no, I’m not “stalking” Tera!

How would you feel standing on bombs? Yep, just the way my ole Einstein feels …

I started by stamping him on my envelope and masked the image. I applied distress ink in Mowed Lawn and Tumbled Glass, leaving out the address label. I stamped the flowers and the bombs on top and colored the flowers with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.

I added the word (His feelings) on the protest sign and some sentiments on the background for more texture. A postage stamp finished my envelope.

I have used the following stamps:

Hellooooo from set 1480
Sentiment from set 1459
Doodle circles from set 1471
Word from set 1517
Flowers from set 1471

Please stay safe, my friends and Happy Crafting ♥
