Hope......


Here is an Artist Trading Coin made today .... it measures 2.5 inches in diameter ....

I made a background with distress Oxide inks and water, stamped with dots and drips in Archival inks. Added a die-cut leaf and used white & black Posca pens. The words were stamped in Versafine black ink and it was edged in gold Krylon pen.

Really made for swapping ...... contact me if you are interested in doing this (email in right bar of the blog) ......

Balloons ......

Decided to make a multi-media panel from a canvas board using stamps from Indigo Blu ..... This is for sale in my Etsy Shop - Harpies Crafty Corner ......

The canvas panel is 7 x 10 inches.

I started by applying a mixture of blue and green matt acrylic paints around the perimeter with a brush.Once dry I applied some thinned down white Gesso to dull down the colours.

I then started on the central panel which was made from card and coloured this with multiple washes of the same acrylic paint colours until happy with the overall effect.

I stamped the Balloon twice on white card with black Archival ink and coloured one with watercolours and a waterbrush, giving it a coat of glossy accents for effect. The second one was coloured with blue & grey watercolours to act as a distant shadow.

I then stamped the words Courage & Hope and matted these on blue card edging with black and gold pens and glazing with Glossy Accents. All these elements were put on one side for later.


I then coloured two lots of white Texture Paste with blue & green acrylic paints, applying these to the panel through a stencil with a palette knife. Once dry I stamped some swirls in sepia Archival Ink and drew in some diamonds from a stencil with Inktense pencils drawing this into the diamonds with a waterbrush. I stamped some dots in blue & green Versafine Clair Inks adding some further accents with white and gold Posca pens.



Some torn Washi tape strips were applied randomly. At this stage the panel was matted on blue card and attached to the Canvas base with gel medium. I then added some glass glitter spots in green and blue as shown.

Final touches were to apply the balloons, the top one on foam pads and the words also on foam pads. The edge of the decorated panel was edged in gold with a pen ......

Jingle .....

 


Made this card with a set of stamps and dies from Altenew .....

I started with a pure white square card and cut a smaller white matt. I edged this with metallic gold Washi tape and stamped a couple of leafy boughs in green Memento ink. I also stamped the bough again on more white card and trimmed out, mounting on foam pads as shown.

The jingle bells were stamped and die-cut and one was mounted on foam pads over the other.  I drew black lines with a 0.1 Micron pen to hang them from the bough. I die-cut bows for the bells from gold glitter card.

The sentiment was stamped in black Versafine ink to finish .....

Leafy.....


Made a celebration card with an Autumn theme using die-cuts ........ This card is available to buy in my Etsy Shop - Harpies Crafty Corner ...

I started with a white card blank. I cut a smaller square from white card and then used a set of leaf dies from Tim Holtz (Sizzix) to cut the designs in the card.

I made a background with glossy card and lights Alcohol Inks and applied this to the back of the card so the colours show through. This was then edged in blue Versamagic Chalk ink and applied to the blank on foam pads.

I then die-cut the 'Celebrate' from pale blue card and mounted on a black background this was also edged in the same Chalk Ink before applying on more foam pads to finish the card ......
