Textured Mushrooms Atc´s

Image
  Hi, I'm Vero (@ Vero.kt) and I welcome you to today's inspiration. How's everybody ? I've been playing with     Mixed media marks   Grungy Stuff   ,   Round in circles   and   Textured Mushrooms  to create a  colorful Atc´s , that I hope you like. Very easy to do, we started. We cut watercolor paper to a size of 2.5 x 3.5 inches, if you prefer to work in cm, 6.4x8.9. In my case, the paper is smooth and hot pressed, and I color the backgrounds with pigments. When the backgrounds dry (we can speed up the process with a heat gun) we will add texture and depth with different inks, in my case I have used  distress oxide.To start, I choose a stamp from the  Mixed media marks  , apply the inks, spray water, and stamp, (I'm not looking for definition, I'm looking for a watercolor effect, watery). Help myself with the dryer and go back to stamp with different inks, to continue adding depth and texture. I  I choose one of the stamps from the  Textured Mushrooms   set, s

Bird Postcard by Samantha Read

Hello, Samantha here today and I'm delighted to be sharing my postcard with you. I just love postcards, they're a great size, 4 inches by 6 inches, to make something simple or complicated and if sealed correctly they can be sent through the post naked, (not in an envelope). I used to organise postcard swaps a few years ago, it was great fun sending and receiving. When my mojo goes walk about and I just can't seem to focus, I nearly always reach for one of my blank postcards and just start something not knowing where it might go. For this postcard I just wanted to see what the back ground tree stencil would look like if done in yello, rather then blue or black for day and night skies. Then of course trees need a bird or two so I reached for the Textured Birds stamp set and thought this bird looked cute looking at the stars through the branches. I couldn't resist adding the leaves from Pencil Marks #3 and Weed Love in brown ink to add some more depth. The stars and text a

Heart Card by Angie Coomber

 Hi arty friends, Angie here with a quick card for you. I started by stamping the journaling words onto a gelli print, then stamped some hearts on top of this and cut them out. I also used a hole punch to create some "confetti" from the same gelli print. Next I stamped some lines onto a square piece of white card. I arranged 3 of the hearts on the lines and glued them down, as well as gluing down some of the confetti.  I matted this onto a piece of card in a complimentary colour and glued this to a blank card. I hope you like it! Until next time! Hugs from Angie x Stamps used: Mix A Sentiment 1 I heart art Grungy borders

Little Witch Tag by Toni

  Hello again my lovelies  Today I've created a small tag book using the Little Witch stamp set  After seeing Halloween all over social media lately I thought why not.  Firstly I attached two tags together with masking tape and cut some dies out that I wanted to use  Using the grave paste and oxide distress sprays I made the background I wanted a night sky affect using the stencil to give the look of clouds  Spray some mica sprays to give a sparkle glow to the sky  Then before putting it all together I did some stamping using the Mixed Media Marks and Affirmations stamp sets.   I hope you join me and get your spook on Hope you have a fabulous week Toni XoXo
