Happy .....

 


Made a card using a stamped background .......

The background plate was made on a piece of mountboard which I stamped multiple times with a chrysanthemum stamp in a number of colours of Memento inks and a light spray of pearlescent blue spray was applied to add interest. It was edged with Krylon gold pen. This was mounted on some purple printed paper and then black card.

The flowers and leaves were fussy cut from more printed paper with the flower being layered. They were then stuck in place and a purple glossy dot added to the flower centre. Some white Posca pen was added to highlight aspects of them.

The panel was then attached to a 5 x 5 inch white cardblank.

The words were stamped on white card in Versafine black ink, trimmed out and matted on black card being placed as shown on foam pads to finish ......

Circuit .....


Here is a tag I have made using mainly AAll & Create stamps .....

I started by stamping the image onto a Brusho backround and trimmed this out. I then selectively stamped the cards, bulb and words with Versafine black ink.  These were trimmed out, coloured and put aside.

I then cut a base from white card and used a numbers stamp to stamp the main colours on the background with various colours of Versafine Clair inks. I stamped also with a chevron stamp with more black Versafine ink. The tag base was also edged with colours in Versamagic chalk ink. I cut a hole and applied a black eyelet with the crop-a-dile.

The trimmed out piece was then stuck in place on the tag base.I then applied some marks with Posca pens and added a watch glass over some of the electronic circuits. A couple of black brads were added and the card elements were added next with some on foam pads. Some torn Washi tape was added, glossy accents were added to the bulb and a length of gold stretchy twine added through the eyelet and attached with staples to finish......

Mission ......


Made a card using a really old wood mounted stamp from Crafty Individuals CI 073 ......

I made a background using Brushos in violet and yellow. I cut a square mat from the background and applied a piece of TH numbers tissue tape.

I next stamped the image twice in Versafine black ink, trimming one out around the men and the sentiment from the other. I coloured just the faces and hands in pink and the numbers in violet Distress Ink wash. Treating the numbers with Glossy Accents.

I then die-cut a number of triangles out of more of the background card and edged with vilet Distress ink wash.

The background was matted on deep violet card. the men applied as shown on foam pads and the triangles and sentiment as shown. I then added three metal studs and mounted the completed matt onto a 6 x 6 inch white card blank to finish......

Primaries ....




Made these ATC's for a swap over on UK Stampers Forum .....

The theme this month is to use 'Primary Colours'. The backgrounds were made on white card using cut 'n' dry foam and Distress Inks direct to paper.

The circle (Tim Holtz) was stamped in Versafine black onto white card and again coloured with Distress inks and a waterbrush. They were trimmed out and a black gem added centrally. I also stamped some words and a french word image in more Versafine black ink. The backgrounds were edged with Posca markers in the primary colours with a squiggly line. A series of black dots were also added with black Posca pen.

The backgrounds were applied to some re-cycled packaging to add strength and the circles added on foam pads to finish......

Dream......


Made a set of Artist Trading Coins for a swap over on UK Stampers Forum .....

I die-cut the bases from a background made with orange and turquoise Brushos and mounted these on more re-cycled card for strength.

I stamped the Torso (A Stamp In The Hand) in black Versafine ink directly onto the base and highlighted some sections with a fine gold pen. I also stamped out the eye (A Stamp In The Hand) on white card and trimmed out colourng the irises with broken china Distress Ink and a waterbrush.

I used a dotty stamp to add some dots in forest moss Distress Ink and added some white Posca pen to some of the dots. The coins were then edged with gold Krylon pen.

I added a gold foiled star and the eyes were added on foam pads. I finished each coin with the word 'Dream'' stamped and coloured with more Distress ink, edging with teal Inktense pen and a waterbrush.

I have also entered this into the That's Crafty Creatives Facebook Group  September Challenge
