Hello Everyone!

Today I have made a postcard for you.  I hope you find it amusing!

To start off I made the backgroud using brushos.

 I then stamped my main image on a piece of thick paper and coloured it

I stamped the sentiment and cut it into strips, and stuck the image and the sentiment onto the postcard.  I went round the very edge with a black pen.

I went round the edge of the postcard with a stamp in two colours to give it a bit more interest.

And voila! I felt that it was finished.  Hope you like it.

Dorthy..... by Tracy Blackwolf

 Hello everyone!

Today I have a very quick tag art to share. With all the stores having Halloween in, I was inspired.

I sprayed the tag with Crackling campfire and marigold and speckled egg spray stains. I  Stamped the horned face, added spray stains with a paint brush for highlights in hair and  used a white gel pen on her eyes. I stamped the spiders and added a sparkle to them using a glitter gel pen. For the finish, I used a stick verbage from a Halloween pack. Finally, I rubbed the black ink pad around the edges of the tag for a distress look.

stamps used:
Whimsical face with horns    19692
Spider on web line        19263

Easel card by Arwen

 Hi Lovelies

Welcome back on this Blog :)

Today, I wanna share my easel card incl. the "how I made it"


Here are the single steps:

1.) For the basic structure I use black cardboard. 2 parts are required: 1x 14cm x 28cm and 1x 14cm x 14cm

2.) For the basic structure I use black cardboard. 2 parts are required: 1x 14cm x 28cm and 1x 14cm x 14cm

3.) Now both parts have to be put together. The 14cm x 14cm piece of cardboard is glued to the folded piece. See image.

4.) As a next step, a "stopper" is needed.
I used a punch here - brads, buttons, etc. can also be used if you prefer.
My die-cut was folded lengthways - one side to stick on, the other side stands up.

5.) I now glue this stop about 6cm from the 2nd fold onto the large part of the long piece of cardboard.

6.) The Easel card blank is now up and almost ready to be designed.

7.)As a last step, I cut watercolor paper, which is then designed. One piece for the high part and one piece for the part before the stop.

Stamps, I used:

- Sirena Mermaid

- Rock Star

- Elvis or Greaser Fish

other supplies:

- black cardstock

- Watercolor paper

- Staz on

- Distress reinker

- Twinklings H2O

- ZIG color pen

See ya soon with other projects :)

Moonlight chat By Cathy N

                                   Goodmorning all, Cathy here with a card for you today.

I started out using some watercolor paper and some new Lavainia Dinkles. They are powered pigment, so if you don't have them, you can use whatever you have on hand. The smaller piece of paper is the one I used for the card. I used the other to sop up the extra color. The second on is much lighter. I set these aside to dry. 

Next, I stamped 12512 Fairy on moon on some white cardstock and colored with copic markers. Then I fussy cut it out.

I then stamped 19556 Wildflower silhouette on the bottom of the panel I made. After I stamped it I then trimmed the panel, so it was the same size.

The next step I did was using the 3D adhesive paste. If you use this make sure you wash your stencil off right away. It's glue so you don't want that drying on your stencil and ruin the stencil. Wait till it goes clear and you can add the deco foil to it.
Lastly, I add the cutout Fairy on moon to the top of the card and glued it to a black card base.

                                                                Stamps used:

                                                         12512 Fairy on moon

                                                         19556 Wildflower silhouette
                                                                Other stuff used:

                                                                Watercolor paper
                                                                 Livainia  Dinkles
                                                                 Sizzix 3D adhesive paste
                                                                 Deco foil (purple)

Moon Moth by Tracy Blackwolf

 Hello everyone!

Today I made A tag...I hope you enjoy.

To begin, I used my stamp as a mask.
I then used three distress sprays to put color on.
I removed the stamp and dried the tag, then stamped the moon in the empty space. Then I sprayed more yellow to fill in moon and added a bit of orange.
Next I stamped the moon phase stamp at the top and bottom of the big moon. Then I used a sponge tool to add black ink around the edges of the scene.
Next I stamped the moth twice and cut it out. I also used white ink to stamp over the moon phase I had
stamped in black.

 I then put  some white  re inker on a plastic scrap and ran an old tooth brush in it then flicking white splats onto the tag.

I colored in the moths and attached them to the tag at the edge of the moon. To finish I used a verbiage sticker and that is it!
I hope you enjoyed and got some inspiration! 

 Stamps used:
Moon phase       19543
The Moon   20157
Death head moth    20056

Other supplies:
Distress spray stains- Squeezed lemonade, salvaged patina, Wilted Violet, Spiced Marmalade, Antique linen, Vintage photo, mustard seed

Versa clair- Nocturne
Brillance ink pad and re inker - moonlight white
