Party!

Hi there,

here is another creation using the fun new Gerda Steiner Designs Pool Piggies stamp set:

  • color one of the adorable Gerda Steiner Designs Pool Piggies with Faber-Castell Albrecht Dürer Pencils and a damp watercolor brush
  • cut out a tag from watercolor paper and create a background with Distress Ink (Tumbled Glass) and Distress Oxide Ink (Broken China)
  • cut out a smaller piece with the same tag die and create a beach with the help of one of the My Favorite Things Stitched Snowdrifts dies - ink up the edges with Distress Ink (Gathered Twigs)
  • stamp the palm trees from the Paper Smooches Get outta Town set and the cocktail from the My Favorite Things Penguins in Paradise and color the images with watercolor pencils as well
  • stamp two sea gulls from the same Paper Smooches set with Versafine (Smokey Gray)
  • cut out a second tag from patterned paper from the Echo Park Summer Bliss 6x6 paper pad and layer it slightly offset behind the main tag
  • cut out a stitched panel from Neenah Desert Storm kraft cardstock and stamp a background with the help of the Judi Kins Papyrus stamp and Adirondack Dye Ink (Latte)
  • stamp the sentiment from the Market Street Stamps set Tikki Time with Versafine (Vintage Sepia)
  • thread blue and natural twine through the hole of the tag

Have a wonderful day.

Yours,


Elephant ATC

Hi there,

I would like to show you this fun ATC over on the Skipping Stones Design Blog:

  • in one of my previous posts I explained how I created the background for several ATCs
  • choose one of them
  • stamp the fabulous elephant from the Skipping Stones Design Elephant End set with Black India Ink onto a book page and mute the letters with some gesso
  • outline the image with a black PITT Artist Pen
  • color the image with Distress Markers (Hickory Smoke, Tattered Rose) and a damp watercolor brush
  • add some scribbly circles to the right side of the ATC with the Pico Embellisher (Electric Pink)
  • color the edges with Distress Crayon (Picked Raspberry)
  • add the sentiment using stickers

I hope you got inspired.

Yours,
