Bright Colours for That's Crafty Challenge blog

Hi Everyone
It's the start of another challenge fortnight over at That's Crafty Challenge Blog and for our latest challenge we want to see 
'Bright Colours'
Here's a little piece of inspiration for you


To create this I first stamped the circles, which is one of the A4 stamps from Carabelle Studio, I then masked them off and created the background using Ranger dye ink pads transferring the ink to the mini circle gelli plate.
I then stencilled the woman and the background details. 
Finally added the absolutely fabulous die cut from Die-namics.
 You'll find more inspiration and all the details HERE
If you decide to play along with us you will automatically be in with a chance to win a £20 That's Crafty voucher to spend online.

Oxides meet the Colonel

Hi Everyone
I hope you are all enjoying the Easter Weekend. 
Like everyone out there at the moment I am loving Tim's new Oxide inks and used a background I had using them for the base of a card for my Dads birthday.


I have used the Fabulous 'Colonel' stamp from Bee Crafty (great for male cards), masked him off and stencilled the clock, by That's Crafty, behind him using vintage photo distress ink. Sentiment is from Rubber Dance stamps. His glass I covered in decoart liquid glass so it does look like a glass just that the photo doesn't show it up. 
To get a little texture into my background before applying the Oxides I first did some mark making onto the card using masking fluid and bubble wrap and a plastic cap for the rings. Once the masking liquid was dry I applied the oxides by picking up the colours from my craft mat using faded jeans,  fossilized amber and vintage photo. 


Once you removed the masking fluid you can see the pattern, which I then cut to the size I needed.
I've even had to download the labels from Rangers site, you'll find the labels Here


Roll on the rest of the colours.
Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by

Guesting at Craft Stamper Blog

Hi Everyone
 I was lucky enough to have been chosen as the winner of Craft Stampers 'Take it, Make it' challenge for February. As such I have been invited to share a guest make to support this months 
'Anything Goes Stamping Challenge"


This has given me the chance to ink up for the first time one of the latest stamps from Brett Weldele and these stamps come from his '1980's Volume 1' set. 
This has been built up by stamping the 'Super' stamp then masking it off, then the girl and she was then masked off. All the stencilling was then done on the background creating a graphic equaliser look blending distress inks. I then stamped the 'halftone stars' from Waltzingmouse stamps and then the word 'Retro' twice, The final sentiment is from Indigoblu. Once this was all dry I removed the masking to reveal all the layers and then coloured the main image with prisma colour pencils.

You will find all the details HERE about playing along with craft Stampers challenge this month. 
This is my 2nd post of the day and it's only 9 o'clock! Previous post was to launch the latest challenge over at That's Crafty Challenge Blog HERE

'Outnumbered' - New Challenge at That's Crafty Challenges

Hi Everyone
We start this Easter bank holiday weekend with a new challenge fortnight over at That's Crafty Challenge Blog. Our theme for the next 2 weeks is

'OUTNUMBERED'
we are looking for projects where numbers are the main focus. 
For my little piece of inspiration for you I have a birthday card


I have layered numbers on numbers for this one. Background has been made first with swooshing the card through spritzed distress oxides. I have then stamped a layer of numbers using Tim's Numeric Numbers large stamp set again using a selection of different colours of the oxides, I then slightly misted the stamping to soften and oxidise the stamping. I then stamped another layers of numbers this time using distress paints in the same colours I had used in the oxides, this time I have stamped using Tim's new foam stamps, the numbers are from the Idea-ology Lower block cling set. My final addition of numbers were to finally add some remnant rubs. 
The Happy Birthday sentiment is again using Tim's foam stamps but I have mixed the lower and upper sets and stamped using black soot distress paint. I have then added additional stamped text which is from Unity stamps.

As always we would love it if you played along with us this fortnight and you could be the lucky winner of a £20 voucher to spend online at That's Crafty.

Wasted!!

Hi Everyone
I have just been playing with a new stamp from Bee Crafty 'The Colonel' from their Steampunk Stories range. This is a lovely big stamp but instead of going with a steampunk/vintage theme I thought I would just have a bit of fun with him.


Wasted!! I'm sure that most of us have been there lol.
I started with another of my pieces of card that I had been playing with Distress Oxides and onto that I stamped the Colonel image and the only part I added additional colour was his drink. I then masked him off and added the sunshine beams coming from his drink using normal Distress inks, over that I stencilled the 'Game Over' which is a Brett Weldele stencil (a new favourite). The text has been added using a Darkroom door alphabet set with some of the letters picked out by stamping on white paper and cutting out.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend

Foliage & Flowers for That's Crafty Challenges

Hi Everyone
It's time for the start of a new challenge theme over at That's Crafty Challenge Blog and our theme for the coming fortnight is
'Foliage & Flowers' which means your project must contain flowers, leaves, trees etc.


As my piece of inspiration for you I have used mostly scrap bits leftover from previous projects.
It all started with a torn page from an old nature book to which I then added some gelli printed tissue bits. I stamped the tree, which is a Kim Dellow stamp from Paperartsy, onto scraps of gelli prints and then paper pierced it over the image I had stamped onto the book paper. I then mounted that onto some torn scraps of gelli printed paper that I had glued to a kraft card blank. I stamped along the bottom to look like grass and the sentiment I cut out from an old stamp I have in my stash. I then finished it all off with some sewing machine stitching.


The Design Team have come up with some fabulous inspiration for you and by playing along with us this fortnight you could also win £20 to spend online at That's Crafty.
So for all the details and to see the fabulous inspirational pieces from the team just pop over HERE
Look forward to seeing you over there

Text Background for Stampotique Designers Challenge

Hi Everyone
Sadly today is my last week as guest designer over at Stampotique Designers Challenge, I have loved being their guest designer for March. My last piece is for the new challenge
"TEXT BACKGROUND"

For my last piece I have used an MDF hanging hearts.  My text background has been created by stamping the "Tall Word Collage" many times onto bit of gelli prints and then cutting them all out. I then built them all up by glueing onto card. I then mounted the card onto the large and smaller heart to form my background. I glued the smaller heart on top of the larger and then splattered paint all over I then wrapped them with black wire. 
I stamped "Agatha Heart onto white card and coloured her with pencils. I stamped the heart she is holding again and added words to it to match the larger hearts and overlaid it to the stamped image, I have also added some glossy accents to her eyes. The sentiment 'Kiss Me' come from strategically cutting the stamped out"Merry Kiss-mas" stamp.


I would like to say a huge thank you to Stampotique Designers Challenge blog  for asking me to take part as their guest for March.
Hope you like it
Love

Happy Mothers Day

Hi Everyone

and a Happy Mothers Day to my mum and all the other mums out there, you are hopefully going to be spoilt rotten today I know my mum is going to be.


I have made a couple of Mothers Day cards which as you can see are a bit away from my usual style, but you have to make to your market sometimes don't you?  Lots of die cutting on theses and I got to use some of my distress oxide play pieces up. 



I have used Tim's mixed media dies, Tim's wildflower dies, Carabelle studio dies, Memory box dies and Tim's Alpha dies. All colour is courtesy of the fabulous Distress Oxides and the stamped sentiments are old Sheena Douglass stamps.
Right have to dash I have loads to do before all the family arrives.
Have a good one and thanks for stopping by

Getting to Oxides at Last!!

Hi Everyone


I am a bit late to the party playing with Tim's new distress oxides but as they say, better late than never. 
What can I say that hasn't already been said by those of you who are ahead of me playing with them, nothing other than to totally agree with all of you that they are fabulous. Loving the chalky, oxidised effect and have made a couple of tags with slightly different techniques in using them.






This tag I have created the background by adding the colour to my craft mat and spritzing with water, picking the colour up on the tag, drying and then repeating the process until I was happy with the background.
I then stamped everything, except the words, using the oxides, they really do stamp beautifully. 
I have added additional colours to his jacket and hat using a waterbrush, the inks are far more potent than normal distress inks when used as paints but leave a fabulous oxidised effect.
Words were stamped in black archival.
Stamps are mostly Brett Weldele and a touch of Tim Holtz














For the background of this tag I first blended the colours using a blending tool and then spritzed the tag to allow the colours to run together a little and oxidise. I then stamped the circles blending the oxides onto the stamp. Once stamped onto the tag I misted the tag again to soften and oxidise the stamping. 
The main image was stamped using black archival and the sentiment added is Tim's chit chat sayings.










I need to experiment more with these fabulous ink pads but I can confirm that I love them!!

Tag it Week 2 for Stampotique

Hi Everyone
It is week 4 and my penultimate week as March guest designer over at Stampotique designers challenge blog This week is the 2nd week of the current "Tag it" challenge and I've gone a little bit 'hippy'.


This weeks tag features one of the characters drawn by Tracy Scott and she is called 'Willow'
She is just spreading the Loveeeeeeeee
Background of the tag is stripes of acrylic paint and then blacked out using a peace stencil.
I have die cut one of Tim Holtz mini globes and coloured it with acrylic paints. I have stamped the 'Bla, Bla, Bla' stamp over the globe as there is a lot of rubbish being spoken at the moment. I have added the words from the song by Dionne Warwick.
"What the world needs now is love sweet love"

Some Sunday Zen

Hi Everyone

If you are in the UK, like myself, I hope you have more to look forward to today than rain!!! Rain however does mean staying in, which means crafty play time!!!
Anyway following on from yesterdays post  HERE I have had another play with my newest Buddha stamp from Inkylicious. 


Background was a gelli print from my stash and then stamped image onto gelli print. Masked off and added the word Serendipity blending Paperartsy paints through Andy Skinner stencil. Then stencilled again using a Crafters workshop stencil and archival black ink. I then added some paints and pencil work to the Buddha. For the head dress I added dots of paint using a cocktail stick and the robe is a mixture of paint and pencil.


Some Tim Holtz remnant rubs finish it off, and then as I tend to do, it was matted onto black card before adding to an 8" x 8" card blank.
I would like to enter this into this months Craft Stamper challenge - anything Goes Here


Have a fabulous Sunday whatever you are doing and thanks for stopping by

Just Buddha-ing about Again

Hi Everyone
Hope you are all having a great start to the weekend. 
I am currently experiencing some fixation with Buddha having found a fabulous Buddha head stamp at Inkylicious, check out previous posts for that one. I have now found that they have another Buddha stamp at Inklicious so have had to have an immediate play with that one once it arrived.


Now I'm not sure I like how this one turned out so I'll probably have another play with the stamp when I get a minute.
Brayered background with acrylic paint including a layer of paint using a textured brayered. Image stamped and masked off. Stencilled background a Dina Wakley stencil. Then the concentric dots stencil which i think is Crafters Workshop. Final layer to add some contrast from the Buddha image was the Bokeh effect using a white ink pad and circle stencil. Quote is from Tim Holtz Chat stickers.

Bling it Up! at That's Crafty Challenges

Hi Everyone
We have the start of a new challenge today over at That's Crafty Challenges and our theme this time is
"Bling it Up"


I don't tend to use a lot of bling so I have gone with subtle bling on this one. I have added glitter and diamante gems to my card which also uses an older stamp from Stampendous that I have found in my stash.
Background is using the Tiny Dot stencil as a stamp using distress inks and then colouring the heart with the same colour distress inks. Sentiment is a Dina Wakely stamp.
We would love to see your 'Blingy' masterpieces and of course they don't have to be as subtle as mine, go 'Blingy' mad for this one!
As always the design team have some fabulous inspiration for you and if you play along with us you could be the winner of a £20 gift voucher to spend online at That's Crafty.

Wk 2 as GDT for Stampotique

Hi Everyone
It's my 2nd week as GDT over at Stampotique Designers challenge Blog and the theme of 
"Use Lace/Ribbon or both" continues into it's 2nd week. Here is my piece for this weeks inspiration.


I have gone for a clean and simple look this time leaving plenty of white space. I have added my lace by using the lace as a stamp, totally covering pieces of lace in paint, laying on the card and running over them using a clean brayer. I have then added the paint coloured lace to the card as well. I have also added various bits of ribbon and fibres to add more texture.
My image is "Mothfab" one of my earliest Stampotique purchases and still one of my favourites whom I have coloured with pencils. Sentiment is from "Barcode Text".

GDT for Stampotique

Hi Everyone

 I am delighted, "woop woop" to have been asked to be the Stampotique Designers Blog 
guest designer for March which means I get to be part of their talented team for a few weeks. I have been a huge fan of Stampotique stamps for many years now and have collected over 200 of their stamps. This last 12 months, due to increased work pressure, I haven't had the chance to play with them nearly as much as I would have wished so I jumped at the chance for a full month of Stampotique fun.
The first challenge theme for March is 

Use Ribbon or Lace (or both)


I start with an MDF panel that I have covered with fabric which I have given a rust treatment. My starring character is one of my favourite Stampotique stamps 'Dwindled' which I have stamped onto fabric and coloured with diluted paints. I have built up my background using several lace trims and ribbons and a lot of machine sewing to add to the texture. The word "fragile', which is from the 'Barcode Text' stamp, has also been stamped onto fabric, machine stitched around and cut out. There are tiny beads and paint splatters to add even more texture.
I hope you like it and I will see you same time next week with a totally different take on this theme.
Thanks for popping in

Unusually for me there is no stamping everything has been stencilled. Main focal stencils are Donna Downey but the background includes various brands including some of That's Craft Dinky stencils and Dylusions Stencils. I had great fun with this one as it has been splodged and splattered till I was happy.

Rediscovering Zettiology Stamps

Hi Everyone


We all love playing with new stamps, and nobody more than me, but I am attempting to go through some of my older collections and blow the dust off them. This time I am playing with some of the Zettiology stamps of Teesha Moore. I remember seeing some of her stamps and then having the mission of tracking them down, to me that is sometimes the fun. Needless to say the collection I have came from the U.S. and I waited so long for them I will never give up my collection so the least I thought I should do was give some of them an inking. I have created a tri-fold ATC card with them.

I cut ATC's from mixed media card and then covered each ATC with torn up, gelli printed deli papers, using the deli papers or tissue paper allows the patten below to show through creating some lovely patterns. I then stamped the images onto thick white paper and lightly coloured with pencils and then added to the ATC's. For some additional detail I have added some machine stitching. Sentiment is from Stampotique.


Hope you all have a great day

Oh Buddha Pt. 2

Hi Everyone
Following yesterdays post I had to have another play with the fabulous Buddha stamp from Inkylicious. So here is another make.


I used a background from my stash that I had made using the shaving foam technique and Dylusions sprays. Stamped the image with archival and masked off. Stencilled the background this time using archival ink as the gaps were only thin and didn't want any paint to seep under. Then stencilled the words using one of Tim's stencils and Dylusions paints that matched the colours that I used on the shaving foam. Sentiment is from Altenew.
Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend and thanks for stopping by

Oh Buddha!

Hi Everyone

I have for ages wanted a decent sized Buddha stamp and found one by Inkylicious which is just over 5 inches in size, it arrived today and I had to play!


Background was created using Dylusions sprays using the cling film technique. I then stamped the Buddha and then again onto scrap paper that I then cut out to use as a mask. 
I masked the Buddha off and stamped the text stamp (Stampotique) over the background. Over that, keeping the mask in place, I then stencilled over using black Dylusions paint and a round blending tool. Into some of the circle spaces I stamped the grid circles (Stampendous).
Finished off with a Tim Holtz adhesive chit chat saying.

Round and Round at That's Crafty Challenges

Hi Everyone
It's time for a new fortnightly challenge over at That's Crafty Challenge blog and our theme for the next 2 weeks is
"Round & Round" (use circles on your project)


I love using circles and for my piece, as a little bit of inspiration for you, I have used many of the various circular dies designed by Seth Apter for Spellbinders. 
My piece started with a That's Crafty MDF panel (4.5" x 9")
I brayered several colours of Paperartsy Fresco finish paints onto book pages, my book pages are from an old railway timetable so are mostly numbers which I love. I then ripped up the paper and covered the MDF with the pieces. I then added some texture stampings over the top using one of Andy Skinners Industrial backgrounds. I then built up my die cuts. I stamped Seths create word stamp and punched out the letters of the word create using a circle punch. I then glued many watch parts to the centres of a couple of the circles and added a rusty washy with an old watch face on top. Tim's Chit Chat stickers finish it off.



A couple of close ups show the details that I have added to the two main circles.
There is a variety of inspiration for you by my talented team mates Here
So we'd love for you to come along and play along with us this fortnight and your entry could be the randomly chosen entry that wins a £20 voucher to spend on line at That's Crafty.
What are you waiting for? come and play along with us HERE

An Afternoons play

Hi Everyone


I have spent a lovely afternoon just playing in my craftroom and decided to have a play with using my not used very often Zig pens. I have stamped this fabulous feather, Paperartsy Eclcctica ETS05 by Tracy Scott, by stamping with different colours of Zig pens. This is made easy using my Misti as I can add a colour and stamp and then add another colour and stamp. The fact that the image is constantly lined up allows you to repeatedly stamp the same stamp till you are happy with the image. 
Then using a water brush I pulled some of the colour out of the stamped lines to colour it in. 
I have further enhanced the colouring with Prismacolour pencils. I then outlined the feather again using coloured pencils. 


A little bit of white pen work and some bling and a Sheena Douglass sentiment and card done.

I would also like to enter this into the current Pink & Orange challenge over on Paperartsy Blog

Hope you've had a lovely day and thanks for calling in
Love
Amanda X
