Happy Halloween!

I sent this tag to a gal who seems to care about people in need .... 

Because it`s this time of the year, it happened to be a Halloween tag, could've been any other theme, I just tried to show my gratitude ♥

Life is now in Session!

I made another tag for the October Challenge over at the Viva Las VegaStamps Blog.

I started with he idea of a color splash and ended far off ♥

Well, I have used dictionary paper, the color Orange and a beautiful stamp designed by Mary Vogel Lozinak, the rest is the freedom of the artist, enjoy :)

12 tags of 2016

Yeah, October means HALLOWEEN!!

I pretty much followed Tim's instructions, substituting for materials I had on hand. Unfortunately, I don't have the cool monster face die, so I used the Rickety House instead. 

To add dimension, I popped up the roof with pop dots.

I embossed the house with a wood grain folder and applied black acrylic paint after I sanded it a bit. 

I used stickers for the words and a little Rub On for the bats.

I will also enter this tag into the challenge over at More than Words!


a little close up of the technique I used ...

Autumn Challenge at Rubber Dance Stamps

I created this tag for the current challenge at Rubber Dance Stamps.

I used one of the beautiful textured flowers and a sentiment from KaiserCraft.

I used a stencil for my background and stamped the flower twice. From one I fuzzy cut the flower without the stem and adhered it with pop dots after I embellished it with a brad.

Happy Autumn ♥

*Sleeping* Totem Cat

I started with the idea of a Halloween canvas and it turned out a bit different ......

I applied Gesso to the background, part of it with a stencil and sprayed it with Distress Stain in different colours.

I added some Viva LasVega Stamps, the spider web and the sentiment from Dylusions and of course the pretty Totem Cat from EyeConnect Crafts! I applied Gesso before I coloured it with black acrylic paint from Ranger.

The little spider is a Rub On from Tim Holtz, I have to keep my spiders tiny since I'm so much afraid of them :)

Challenge #238 - Mix up your stamps!

For the new challenge at Use your Stuff, I have created this ATC.

I have used a Rubber Dance Stamp for my main image, a sentiment from PI. The little white flowers on my background are also from Rubber Dance Stamps.

I have inked my background with Distress Ink in different colours and sprayed a bit of water onto it, just love the texture it creates!

Good question :)

I felt like I had another idea for the challenge at Viva Las VegaStamps and created this tag with the "beautiful" lady!

This time I had  neutrals in general in mind as well as the stars and the "demonic" little sentiment in coordination with the image :)

The background stamp is "Mesh" from Darkroom Door.

Sentiment - (Must be on one of the plates!)

as well as some wood veneer star.

Take It Make It Challenge

For the Take It Make It Challenge at the Craft Stamper Magazine Blog I created this ATC with seasonal/earth tone colours: reds, oranges, greens and  yellows.

The background is from a Master Board I had inked with different Distress Inks in Autumn Colours.

I stamped the textured Flowers and removed the ink with Bleach. Then I coloured the flower with Faber Castell PITT Artist Pens. I added some little flower stamps with white ink. 

The sentiment is from a PI Stamp Set, the Flowers are from Rubber Dance Stamps.
