Hi everyone! This post is truly all about the art and I've created projects for a bunch of challenges this week so off we go...
First up I will share this card with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-happy 12th birthday to you!!!
I made this card using the Mandy's Flowers stamp and die set, Neenah Solar White 110# card stock, Bo Bunny "Early Bird" 6" x 6" paper set, and Moonshine Sequins-all from the Simon Says Stamp Shop. The image was colored in with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado. Images stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.
This tag is for two challenges- Tag Tuesday (Bees), and the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge (Not a Card):
I started with a K and Co. printed tag. I then added the bees from a napkin, stenciled through sequin waste using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide in Fossilized Amber, added a Tim Holtz Paper doll and Clippings Sticker to finish it.
My next tag is for T Stands For Tuesday:
I happened upon an old patterned paper that had this waiter image on it and just had to use it so I fussy cut him to put on a tag with one of Tim Holtz Wallpaper papers. The washi tape is Recollections, and the sentiment was computer generated. I love how it looks as though the flowers are coming out of the cup (no, I did not plan that 😁)
Last week I received a package that was part of a giveaway from an artist I follow on Instagram. She was giving away two different sets of Gelatos and a set of Dina Wakley Scribble sticks. I had the Scribble sticks so I put my name in for the Gelatos - and this is what she sent me:
All these lovely papers and a full pkg. of Iridescent gelatos!! I am in love with that painted paper on the top 💓! She offered the slightly used gelatos because she said she just wasn't using them enough to warrant keeping them. They were barely used! I thought it was a really great gesture and so if I find myself not using them much after playing around with them I too will pass them on to someone in the US. I swiped and labeled each color across a large gessoed tag. The sheen and colors are gorgeous- I hope this video will work because a photo alone did them no justice:
I am so inspired by Dina Wakley - her loose art style and her products! DW Ocean paint was watered down a bit and sponged on the page. I then glued down scraps of her Collage Tissue before stenciling with Lapis paint. Asemic writing was done using a black Fude Ball Pen. A scrap of paper was finger painted with DW Fuschia, Cheddar, and Lemon paint for some color contrast. My new DW Block Alphas stamp set was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink and fussy cut to form the words, and I used a new Tim Holtz Paper Doll.
Looking forward to seeing what you all have been up to! Thanks for stopping by 🤗
