Nude Fairy by Tracy Blackwolf

 Hello all! Happy Spring!

This week I did an art tag- I hope you like it.

So to begin, I stamped the butterfly with staz on ink onto sparkle laminate. Any cold laminate will work. I also stamped the lady on heavy cardstock. 
I cut out the butterfly and the lady. and grabbed a pair of wings from a package. Then I took out my leafing foils and opened it up, don't breathe or it flys everywhere!
Gently pull backing off of wings, I do half at a time and start putting the foil on. Make sure to cover it well. Then do the other half. I use a soft sponge to carefully rub off excess foil.

So you get Gilded sparkle!! Pretty! Then I painted the lady with twinkling H2O's. 
For the background, I used Disstress spray stains and then stamped just the out side edges of  the nature collage stamp all over the tag.
Then she needed some mushrooms to sit on so I made some out of resin and a mould. I painted them with gesso and when that was dry, I painted with the H2O's.
Since the mushrooms were pretty thick, I used two foam squares behind the fairy to help her stand out the best. I also glued the sheer wings before placing her on the foil wings. Add a little moss the mushrooms, glue them on the tag with hot glue, then put her on top and that is it!
I hope you enjoyed my blog post this week...Keep arting!

BANKSY ATC's by Fran Chalmers

Hello again everyone!

Today I have made some ATC's featuring Banksy stamps (which I love).

 I had all the gelli plate backgrounds in my stash, so cut them to 3.5" x 2.5" size.

For the first ATC, I stamped the image and then cut out the zebra and the woman.  I stamped the image onto the card so I wouldn't have to cut out the stripes.

I added washi tape to add interest to the finished ATC.

For the second ATC, I edged the card with blue to frame it, then stamped the image in black.  I added washi tape to add interest.

With the third ATC, I edged it with purple and stamped the image onto the ATC, and then thick paper so the sign is left white.  I cut it out and added washi tape to finish it off.

I coloured in his Peace necklace with gold glitter pen to add a bit of interest too.

Hope you like them :) See you next time.

Stamps Used:

Banksy Zebra Washing 20297

Banksy Girl Watering TV Antennae 19603

Banksy Rat Protester 19489

Other Items Used:

Elements Inks in Blue Lagoon and Violet Chalk

Copic Pens

Assorted Washi tape

Gold glitter pen

Forecast...... by Tracy Blackwolf

 Hello Everyone!

This week I made an art tag...They are fun to do and I keep them on a book ring so I can look back at them later.

So for this tag, I did the background starting with the smooshing technique-
I use a sheet of glass to put my inks on. I used the disstress oxide inks for this.

put the ink on the glass, spread with my finger and then spritz with some water. Then take the tag and smoosh down to pick up ink. repeat until happy. Wipe glass clean.
Let tag dry or dry with heat tool. Then I put speckled egg ink on glass and spread with my finger again. I then stamped the news print background onto the tag. dry. After that I took the textured background stamp and did the the same with Picked raspberry.

While that all dried, I stamped and cut out the lady and  painted her. I used the Disstress spray stains for this. spray on glass and use as watercolor. I also used some twinkling H2Os . Dry and then used double stick tape and put her on the tag.

I used some "small talk" stickers and cut them apart to fit on the tag. I also painted them . I then added some shadow below the woman. Added a bit more water to blend the shadow better...and that is it! 
Fun small art. In nice spring colors... Since its still winter here for now..yuk.
Hope you enjoyed~ stay crafty!!
