Kiss !

This Challenge called Kiss - where you use one stamp colour and use another stamp over top of it to make a design.

I chose the bird stamp from Stamp Attack....inked the birds with Fluid Chalk ink.
Stamp on top of that with the squiggly design with Memento rich cocoa.

Will make a cute Birthday card.

card published....

This card is on page 101 of the Apr/May/June issue of Stampers Sampler.

They didn't show the whole card....just the front.

This tri fold card was fun to make / the middle section I ripped the paper and  edgeded it with ink.  then stamped the Dandelion (by Stamp It) in white.
Cut out some butterflies and covered them with glossy accents.
Now - don't forget to also check out page 114 for the 'closer look' on one of my cards.

Earth without EH is just.....

Love that saying.

This challenge was to have that word used in the piece you are making.

I had these long envelopes which I painted up by rubbing stamp pads on a mat - then spritzing with water.
then I laid the envelops across to absorb.....turned out ok.  Think I will try some paper backgrounds next.

Then of course I put a few goodies in them before I shipped them out to my buddies.

Wednesday, March 19, 2014 on your workdesk.....

Whats on your workdesk wednesday - it has been several weeks since I joined in.

First, on my desk,  I am practicing a new technique called playing around on scrap paper.
Think I finally got it to work now I can make myself a card or more....

Then I have this drying off to the side.  All covered in Gesso and paint.....

And thought I would share my box of scrap paper.....really do need to go through it and get rid of some......or not.....

anyway - check out the rest of the avid crafters out ....
