SDC211-Perfectly Primary

Sue is our hostess this week at and she wanted us to use two of the three primary colors. 

I chose red and yellow and used an old hotel room card to apply my paint. Once it dried, I applied Clear Embossing Paste thru a stencil and let it dry, then to bring out the flourish, I went over the stenciling lightly with Black Archival ink and a piece of cut and dry foam. 

Both of my main images are Roc Nicholas' and are available at Stampotique. Stand Tall and Party Dog. Colored with PrismaColor pencils and a bit of pink sparkle on the socks and eyeglasses!

SDC210-Anything Goes

Kim is our hostess this week at Stampotique Designers Challenge  and she said "anything goes!" 

I finally got some EZ Mount for my unmounted stamps I got at the Trunk Show Donna and I went to a couple of weeks ago, so I inked and colored the "Sunflowers" stamp I got! My background is various blue Distress Inks with some "raindrops" stenciled and Glossy Accented for dimension. A couple of clouds and I like how this simple 6 x 6 piece turned out.

SDC209-Repeat Yourself

Time again for Stampotique Designers Challenge  and Sam Read is our hostess. Apparently her hearing is going, because she wants us to repeat ourselves!! ;) Actually, we are to use the same image repeat times.

So after coloring a tag with some Distress Paints, I chose to use Roc Nicholas' Squiggly Arms, Stacked Cups and the hearts from Flying Hearts to complete my tag. The cups and hearts all have some VIVA German Glitter, but it's really hard to see. My cups are full of love!

It's time once again for the Stampotique Designers Challenge and this week, Jackie is our hostess and she wants us to use Animals!

I am working in my small Dylusions journal on a couple of mop-up pages. I used Roc's Feline stamp, Kira's Kitty Squad stamp and Tim's Black Cat stamp for my animals. Black Stabilo pencil around each kitty for definition.

It's a CAT-astrophe!!!

SDC207-Selfies or Photobombing

Claudine is our hostess this week at SDC207 and she wanted us to do either a Selfie or Photobombing. 

In my happy little world, Bird Lady and her puppy just wanted to have their picture taken. Then those pesky neighborhood cats had to stick their noses in, and this is what happened!

12 Tags of 2015-August

Flip the calendar. Another month down. Another Tim Tag of The Month!

What a cool tag he created  for this month! I changed it up a bit (don't I always!) I have the same Framelets dies as he used, so I used it, then followed along with the coloring of the tag. I used a lady from the Found Relatives pack, and instead of the star like Tim used, I gave her a pretty rose at her belt. I also used Brushed Pewter Paint to flick over the completed tag.

SDC 206-Under The Sea

Kristen is our hostess this week at SDC 206 and she wanted us to do something "Under The Sea."

I guess I must be getting psychic in my old age because I started this in my small Dylusions journal yesterday thinking I wanted to do something "water-ish." This is what I ended up with!

There is both blue and green Stickles on the pages for some sparkle as well as some on the mermaids. The mermaids are from Viva Las Vegas stamps and everything else is Dyan's.
