Halloween-ish card by Cathy

 Hello, all Cathy here with a Halloween-ish card for you today.


                                                                           Stamps Used:

                                                                19563 grunge circles

                                                               19991 Alis Volat Proprits


              


                                    Why I say Halloween-ish because I started out to make a Halloween card and I didn't know what I wanted to use for the main image, so I switched it up a bit. I stamped the grunge circles in an orange and purple distress ink colors around my card base. Then I took my sponge dabber that had brown distress oxide ink on it and used whatever was left on it to go around the card. I splattered some water on it to give it drips.


I decided to make a tag for the front. I took rusty hinge antique linen distress ink to make the tag background. I stamped Alis Volat Proprits with black ink and tore the tag. I edged it with distress inks.


Lastly, I added foam tape to the back of the tag added to the card base.

No Clothes......by Tracy Blackwolf

 Hello everyone!

For todays project I did another page in my art journal...enjoy


For this page, I sprayed some water in the two corners and then dipped my brush in the spray stain and gently tapped it where I wanted color. I tipped the book so it would spread but not too much. then I dried it before stamping the various stamps on the color areas.


I dipped my brush in darker colors and tapped it against my finger to get the splatters. The last color I splattered is a light gold you can see when the light hits it. 

For the ladies, I fussy cut just around them leaving a background for painting so they would stand out more once on the page.

I found some iridescent wrap scraps and decided it would add a festive touch to the scene. I heated it with my heat tool to make it not so fluffy so my girls would sit better. I used foam tape on the back of them but I used hot glue to stick them to the page, I didn't want it popping off later.
I used my trusty TH snarky Quotes and also glued them on with hot glue.
And that is it my friends! Hope you enjoyed!



Stamps used:
5 Ladies       18537
Bubble wrap texture    19566
Chevron banner    19042
Writing triangles    19571

Other Supplies:
Kaleidacolor ink pad- baby powder
Pearl ex water color pallet- duo and interference
Distress spray stains: picked raspberry, salvaged patina, tea dye, tattered rose, Victorian velvet

Poe's Party Hat by Cathy N

 Hello, all Cathy here with a semi-Halloween card for you. I have been in the Halloween mood for the last week or so and I just had to make something for it.


                                                                    Stamped Used:

                                                                       19900 Poe

                                                                      17545 grunge writing background

                                                                      19991 Alis Volat Proprits


I started out with some orange distress ink and stamped grunge writing background randomly around the edges of my card base. I then took some brown ink and inked around the edges and splattered some water around to give it a grunge look.

 

I had made this background earlier with some white paste that I added some black ink to it, and it mad it gray. I tore the edges and edged it with some gray ink. 


Next, I stamped Poe and cut him out. After that I stamped the wings from Alis Volat Proprits in the same orange ink I used for the background and cut them out. I found a top hat in my digital collage images and cut it out so Poe could where it. I added the wings to the hat and then the hat to Poe and I added foam tape so it would stick to the texture of the background.

MAY YOU TOUCH DRAGONFLIES - by Fran Chalmers

Hello everyone.  

Today I have made a simple CAS card. This wasn't my first attempt as I did start it with a coloured background, but decided that the stamp was too delicate and needed a plain, white background.


I stamped the image straight onto the card blank with Versafine Clair Nocturn.


 I coloured the image with Kuretake pens, then went over the moon with a Wink of Stella (clear) to give it a bit of sparkle.



I added some silver glitter pen to the fairy's wings.


I stamped the sentiment in Versafine Clair Very Peri to compliment the fairy's wings.


Lastly, I went round the edges of the card with silver glitter pen



Stamps Used:

Fairy on Moon 12512

May you touch dragonflies 19753

Other items used:

Versafine Clair in Nocturn and Very Peri

Kuretake pens

Silver glitter pen

Wink of Stella

Summer by Tracy Blackwolf

 Hello everyone!

For my blog project today, I did a page in my art journal-enjoy.


I started by doing the blue corners first. I sprayed several spray stains and then sprayed water and kept alternating until I was happy.. Then I did the yellow and red. again using water to thin and move around the colors.


Next I used my pearl ex watercolor pallet and painted several colors on here and there until I was happy. I love the shimmer of the pearl ex.

While that dried, I stamped and fussy cut the swimsuit lady out and painted her. Next I stamped the various images where I wanted them- making an l shape on the page. I added the seahorse washi tape. I used two layers of foam tape behind the girl since I wanted her to stand out nicely. Added a die cut green sprig and then done! I used the chain link fence stamp as fish net- it works pretty good but then it mostly got covered up.





Stamps:
Lady swimsuit back       2411
Jagged chain link fence     19140
Grunge circles            19563
Grunge Thermometer    20691
Writing and scribble collage     20695

Other supplies:
Distress spray stains
Pearl ex watercolor pallet
Versa claire inks- Warm breeze, morning mist, nocturne
Alexandra renke washi tape seahorses

Art Journal by ~*Arwen*~

 Hi Lovelies :)


Welcome back on this Blog.

My project for today is a new Art Journal page.

Close-ups:


And thats the way, I created it:

1.) I use watercolor paper measuring 13.5cm x 20cm. I round off the outer corners. Then I stamp my first picture.



2.) Then I want to draw a UFO in the upper part of the page. To do this, I use a circle stencil.



3.) Before I finish drawing the UFO, I stamp the next image. To do this, I mask the UFO so that I don't stamp over the edges.



4.) I finish drawing the outline of the UFO with a Micron Pen. I add details later, after I have colored it.



5.) I now begin coloring with my handmade watercolor paint. I start with a beam that falls from the UFO onto the alien.



6.) I painted the background with gouache paint. Before I add the final touches, I stamped some text onto the art journal page. Then I added stars using a stencil.



Stamps, I used:

- Alien running scared

- Cat with paw hanging

- Fun Collage Alphabet


other supplies:

- Watercolor paper

- VersaFine Clair

- Stencils

- handmade watercolors

- Micron Pen

- Posca Pen white

- Distress Oxides


See ya soon :)
