Take a chance

It's time once again for me to be the featured Design Team member on Roc's blog.

This month I've created a tag and if Pony Tail  and Flying Pig had a baby, this is what it would look like! I love the ease of Roc's stamps to cut and mash-up the different animal stamps she creates! Steampunk Border completes my tag. 

All of Roc's stamps can be found at Stampotique.

It's time for a new challenge and this  time we are to put a bug on it!

Twinkie seems to have gotten himself into a buggy situation! He's even got a caterpillar on his head!!! All of the bugs are from Dyan Reaveley stamps sets.

SDC 256 Week 2

It's the second week of the SDC Mail Art Challenge.

I had some happy mail to send out, so I decided to decorate the envie as well as what was going inside!




I used Kassa's cute little Betsy bird, Magda's Agatha Flower and Roc's Bird Border.

By The Sea

John and I have friends getting married next month. They both love the beach. So much so that they are getting married ON Clearwater Beach! So I thought it was appropriate that their wedding gift from us have a beach theme.

I started with one of Tim Holtz's Mini Configurations Books and used Distress Paint Salty Ocean to paint all of the edges. Once dry, I came back in with some Ground Espresso Distress Ink and aged here and there to make it look a little more worn. I used an old Graphic45 paper line called By The Sea and added some raffia to the covers and cut out some of the stamps from the line and pop-dotted them for dimension on the front cover. The happy couple's initials are K and J, so I used Tim's wooden alphabet and pounced Salty Ocean Distress Paint on them and once dry, I lightly sanded to age them a bit. They are getting married on October 15, so I found a 10 and a 15 and did the same with them as with the letters. I found L O V E in my letter dice and applied a bit of Salty Ocean Paint to them as well. I had bought the sailboat and flip flops at a craft show that I went to a while ago and I used some LuminArt Silks on them. I used a corked vial and added some Distress Glitter to it. A word tag, Destiny since K says she was destined to meet J! And finally three hearts with a bit of Mushroom Alcohol Ink to age them a bit.

Good Day

The 26th and it's my day again to be featured on Roc's blog.

I started my postcard with a technique that Tim taught in Compendium of Curiosities 103 that I fell in love with. I can't share how I did the background, but it was done with Alcohol Inks. 

I reverse stamped Bird Lady. Then I stamped Flying HeartFinally,  I added a pop of Tim Holtz's Broken China Distress Ink to both. I heard the quote on a TV show and liked it, so I printed it out and added it. 

This postcard will be going to a player in Roc's Facebook swap group next month. There is still time to join!  https://www.facebook.com/groups/567598263326733/

Now go have a good day!
