A new tag of the month

I made a new tag with the techniques explained by Tim Holtz for his 12 tags of the month: March.
You can find a tutorial HERE.


For the background I used Distress Paints and I stamped a Kaisercraft stamp. Then I stamped the butterflies from the Kaisercraft stamp on a piece of paper painted with Distress Paints, I cut them out and I applied glossy accents on all the butterflies.

I used a chicken wire stencil with embossing paste and I applied gold embossing powder.

The words have been stamped by using alphabet stamps.

Tag of the month: March

I made a tag inspired by the new tag of the month made by Tim Holtz.

I loved the techniques he showed and I could not wait to try them.

Also, I want to partecipate in "a vintage journey" challenge, this month the theme is "anything Tim".

The new challenge at Simon Says Stamp is B is for...

for me B is for BUTTERFLY
I challenged myself to alter a gelli print with Designs by Ryn stamps , embossing powders and a big butterfly stamp (Sheena Douglass- Crafter's Companion) as a focal point.
The butterfly is coloured with Luminarte Primary elements (pigment+mica),

Challenge: just a hint of clover

I love green!
I have a card for the new Simon Says Stamp challenge: just a hint of clover.
I made a background with Peerless watercolours, I added dots with a stencil and pigment inks (bohek technique) and I stamped Designs by Ryn stamps with a grey ink.
Then, I stamped feathers with Versamark and I heat embossed them with Silver embossing powder.

I added a sentiment (Flourishes stamps) so I can send this card to a dear friend.
I also added some acrylic gemstones to give more sparkle to the background.

Faux watercolour card

No rules for the new challenge at Simon Says Stamp.

I made a card using the faux watercolour technique I learned from a watercolour online class I took some time ago from Online card classes.

I used Kitchen Sink Stamps (multi-stamping) and Stampin Up inks. Then, I used a waterbrush to soften the edges to give a watercoloured look.


I added stickles to the centre of the flowers and I heat embossed a sentiment.

botanical art journal page

I made a journal page with Tim Holtz stencils, stamps and paper.

I added a lot of texture with molding paste, mica fragments and paints.
I think this is a good page for the current Simon Says Stamp challenge: add a little texture.
