Stop wars

Hello everyone,

Welcome to my first December post. Today I have an artjournal page to show you.


The background is a gel printed piece of paper from my stash. I randomly stamped it with Distress Oxide inks, black VersaFine and some grey StaZon. I stamped the Stormtrooper and Toto on my page and on some watercolour paper. After colouring the images with watercolours and som coloured pencils I cut them out and arranged them on my page. I added some colour under his brush and some shading under their feet. A border drawn with a graphite pencil finished it off. 



I have used the following stamps:

Other materials:
A gel printed background from my stash
Distress Oxide Inks
StaZon ink
Versafine Ink
Watercolour paints
coloured pencils
graphite pencil

Thank you so much for stopping by today !

For an "old" sweetie ► Majo

Hi Folks,

Majo here today to show you a Birthday card I made for an "old" friend. 



We are a group of girls and since we didn't know just what to give the "ole gal" we decided on a coupon for a beauty shop.

My seed packet die from Sizzix just fit the purpose and the awesone ladies stamp, well, you already guess :)

I stamped the image after cutting the envelope and the card and coloured it with Distress inks.

I stamped the Birthday sentiment on the card and decorated it by stamping some flowers around it.

That's all it needs for a quick and funny Birthday card.



 I have used the following stamps:

2748 - The lovely Ladies
20146 - The flowers
14307 - The Sentiment

Other Supplies:

Sizzix Die #658448
Ranger Distress Inks


 You can get the stamps right here:


There are still 2 days left to join our challenge at our Facebook group:


Thanks so much for stopping by.

Pair of Cards by Preeti D.

Hi friends :)
Hope you are doing well.
Preeti Datta (Dutt Preety) here from the VLVS! Design Team. 
For today's post, I've created a Pair of Simple Cards. 
I've used some gorgeous VLVS! Rubber Stamps here.
I was inspired by Banksy Style Graffiti Art.


VLVS! Banksy stamps are amazing. I love them!

The process is quite simple. I stamped the VLVS! stamps onto watercolour paper.

Then die cut the panels using rectangle dies and did background stamping using grey archival ink.

  Then did very light watercolouring using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

Added the sentiments using Tim Holtz stickers. In the end, matted the panels in black and then white and adhered them to cream coloured A2 sized card bases. 

VLVS! Supplies:
Other Supplies:
Kuretake: Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers
Canson: XL Watercolour Paper
Tsukineko: Versafine Onyx Black Inkpad
Hero Arts Rectangle Dies 

Thanks a lot for your precious time :)
Stay Blessed!
