Green with Envy...

March 10th 2018

New digi image by Vera Lane Studio digi released this week - just love the style!! You can find this set HERE.

I've added this coloured and fussy cut image to a set of 4 small tags which I printed on my gelli plate.
I also added pre-coloured collage wings which are also available at the Vera Lane Studio Etsy store! I added a bit of glitter glue for some sparkle and hand wrote the wording onto the body which is deisgned for journaling!

This tag is also for a swap on a Facebook Group I belong to so I hope the recipient likes my "green" themed tag!

Blank Page Muse March Challenge: ATC's

March 9th 2018

Nearly time for the new challenge at the Blank Page Muse Blog! Love this month's theme which is to create an ATC!! Easy peasy - no excuses not to join with these little 3.5 x 2.5 inch canvases!! and remember to "hop" around the other DT Blogs to get instructions and inspiration to join the challenge! You have a month to enter!

I've used stamps from the following Blank Page Muse Sets: Rosette Hearts & Artist Trading Card Labels.

Here's a quick run through of how I made my ATC!

I cut some nice thick card to ATC size.

Adhere card to an old book page using a glue stick and then once dry trim off the excess.

Using a spatula smear a thin layer of gesso over the entire ATC surface.

Then using the large background stamp from the rosette Heart Set stamp black pigment ink or versamark (whatever embossing ink you have) to the ATC base and emboss with embossing powder.

Follow the step above for the ATC label stamp on plain thin white card. It's optional to emboss this - I wanted to make it match the front of the ATC once adhered to the back.

Edge the front and back parts of the ATC with gold "Smooch" to give a border and mae it look finished off!

Stamp the double heart/key image onto a scrap of book page and emboss with gold powder and fussy cut.

Use a spatula to apply a thin layer of gesso to another piece of old book page and allow to dry. once dry stamp the wording with black archival ink onto this paper and tear out - edge this piece with gold Smooch as well.

Next add all the elements to the ATC base including a metal corner charm and scrap of muslin cloth, adhere the ATC label to the back and you have your ATC all ready to go!

Little Monsters.....

March 7th 2018

Two little ATC's made for the current Oddball Art Stamps Facebook group swap and also to enter in the current Blog Challenge - themes of: "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie" - LOL cute!!

I've used "Mr Monster" available HERE at the Etsy store!! I started with thick cardboard as the bases and covered with gelli prints, embossed the edges, added some muslin cloth and computer generated wording and finally the copic coloured and fussy cut monsters!!

March 2nd 2018

NEW digi sets at the Vera Lane Etsy Store - Old MacDonald's Farm - 3 fab sets to grab and create with!!

For these ATC's I've used a little duck from each of the Farm Animal Sets along with their "noises" wording LOL!

I'm entering these I the current Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Blog challenge with the theme of T is for Tissue!! My ATC backgrounds are ink sprayed tissue paper which I glued to the ATC card base, then added texture paste through a stencil and once that was dry I used pastel crayons to add some colour to the paste. Finished off with a piece of hessian type fibre, the fussy cut ducklings and the wording! Too cute!

I've used a cute puppy "Maddy" as the focus image on my ATC's - probably my most fav Odddball digi at the moment! Digis are coloured with Copics and added to mixed media backgrounds - old book pages with gesso, texture paste and ink sprays. Wording is computer printed.

Birds of a Feather...

February 11th 2018

Sharing another new release digi by Vera Lane Studio "Birds of a Feather" - such a cute set!!! I seem to be colouring in autumnal tones lately which is very unusual for me but I am loving the blends! I also added some collage elements from the "Circles and Stems" sheet - the colours of the circles matched perfectly!

I used scrap bits and pieces of patterned papers and paint chip samples to add to the ink sprayed background. A bit of "doodling" along the sides to finish off!

If you are a Vera Lane Studio fan come and join us at our Facebook Group for more DT inspiration, ATC trades and lots of fun!!!

Blank Page Muse Challenge : Blue, Heart & Time....

February 9th 2018

Pop over to the Blog to check out all the wonderful creations by the rest of the team when the challenge goes live on the 10th!!!

I've created a "love" themed journal page using one of the stamps from the "Romance Classic Couples Stamp Set".

To make my background page I used strips of washi tape in various lengths which I then "washed over" with gesso. I used co-ordinating ink sprays over the page once the gesso dried. then I used some journal card by Me & My Big Ideas which fitted the love/time/blue theme!! I had the gold wire heart in my stash along with the scrap of muslin cloth below the stamped image.

I stamped the couple on white linen finish card and coloured fairly simply using Copic markers, fussy cut and adhered to the page after arranging and gluing down the other elements. Love how it turned out - perfect for the theme of the challenge!
