Botanical journal page

I made a journal page with a botanical stamp set from Tim Holtz and Stampers anonymous.
I really love it.
I used many different techniques, I inked the feathers with distress ink and I heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. I coloured and stamped the bird and the eggs with distress markers to achieve a more natural look.

The background has been coloured with many different shades of Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals (powdered pigment).

I will post this on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog.

This is my latest creation I made with Distress Inks, Designs by Ryn  (stamps), Tim Holtz die cuts and a wooden embellishment (the bird) from Prima Marketing.

I will enter this on the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog and on the Designs by Ryn customers gallery.

Mixed media tag

 I made a mixed media tag with Paper Artsy stencils, grunge paste, lots of layers of acrylic paint and Twinkling H2os from Luminarte.
The stamps are from Crafter's Companion/ designed by Sheena Douglass.

I will link this on the new challenge on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog.

Watercolour study 2

I made another little painting for my art journal.
I used the same technique I explained in this post. Distress Inks and a poppy stamp as a guide.

I will enter this in the new challenge issue by Simon Says Stamp (Use watercolors).

To give a bit of sparkle and texture to the center of the poppy i used Stickles (glitter glue).

Watercolour study

I enrolled in the Watercolor class offered by Online card classes.
I learned some cool techniques and I made a few watercoloured pages for my art journal.

I watercoloured this page with Distress Inks. I didn't draw the flowers free hand but I used a Hero Art stamp as a guide.
This technique was taught by Dawn, the owner and designer of Wplus9 stamps.

I will enter this in the "Use watercolor" challenge issued by Simon Says Stamp.

New challenge: stencils and stamps

I have another project for the current Simon Says Stamp challenge: stencils and stamps.

I created the background with crackle paste and a Tim Holtz stencil (rays - my most used stencil!!!).

I stamped a few nature-themed stamps by Stamper's Anonymous and Tim Holtz.

I used Distress Stickles and Rock Candy stickles on some of the stamped images.  The sentiment is from an old set (Tim Holtz), it's the clear smaller version instead of the rubber version (bigger sentiment).

Stencils and stamps

It's time for a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp. STENCILS AND STAMPS!!! I love it!!!

I have a tag I made with a Tim Holtz's stencil (rays) and  Darkroom Door stamps (London-themed). I also altered  a piece of white ribbon with Distress Inks and I stamped on it with Archival Inks.
