Paperbabe Challenge #87

Good morning, today we have a new challenge over on the Paperbabe stamps blog, this time around it's a sketch challenge

You can use the sketch any way you like, flip it, rotate it just get creative. I decided to make a scrapbook layout

I used the Herringbone stencil to add the detail behind the flowers which I stamped using the Peony and Bud stamp set and fussy cut. I added splatters in the background with distress oxides in the same colours I stamped in. I added a sentiment from the Birthday wishes set and then chose 3 photos to add to the layout.

To join in with the challenge pop over to the blog and link up your project, there you will find all the details, I can't wait to see what you create.

Paperbabe Stamps chellenge #86 DT inspiration

Hey there crafters, today we are starting a new fortnightly challenge at Paperbabe Stamps, the this this time around is "Animals/Pets"

The theme can be used in any type of crafty project, be it a card, mixed media piece or maybe even a scrapbook layout.

I have put together a project to inspire you

Meet Mr Floppy Ear. How cute is he?

I decided to make a Mixed media decoupaged card using the White rabbit template, face stamps and a few stencils from my Paperbabe stash.

I started by creating some prints on my Gelli plate using the following High viscosity Pebo acrylic paints; Buff Titanium, Raw sienna, Yellow Ochre, Naphtolene Carmine and Iridescent gold. I used some tissue paper and stencils to help create patterns and texture to the print.

Once dry I drew around the templates for the White Rabbit on to the prints, deciding which print to use for which part of the rabbit and his clothing as I went. I then fussy cut them and added some Distress Ink (Vintage Photo) to the edge of all the cut pieces, this helped take away any stark white and kept with my vintage feel.

I assembled the Rabbit using foam tape to add layers and shadows, I love decoupage style projects.  To finish the rabbit I stamped his face in brown ink and added a few pencil lines to his whiskers and eyebrows.

My card base was also a Gelli print using the Naphtolene carmine and iridescent gold along with the checkerboard stencil.

I am so pleased with how Mr Floppy Ear turned out, he's so cute and full of charm. Here are the links to the Paperbabe products I used

STAMPlorations November CAS Card challenge

I am really excited to share todays post with you because I've created a super cool card for the November STAMPlorations CAS Card challenge. 

So as you can see from the graphic above this month the theme is anything goes with the added colour twist of RAINBOW. I love a rainbow card and this one is my all time best.

I stamped the little monsters onto masking paper and roughly cut around the outline leaving a bigger edge than I normally would. I then stamped the monsters onto my card and added the masks over them.

I used Distress Oxide inks to add the rainbow colours from top to bottom making sure to gently overlay the colours so I didn't get a harsh line where they meet.

I flicked water at the card and used a paper towel to blot, this bleaches the colour leaving lighter patches behind. Once dry I stamped and embossed my sentiment in white, I love the bright white against the rainbow colours.
