These were created again using Claudine Hellmuth's paints for the background, stamped with Distress oxide ink using a Tim Holtz's background stamp and then stamping the the flowers using a stamp from Magenta.
I used some water color markers to brighten up the flowers then some washie tape, twine and Nuvodrops.
2017 Wedding season has begun and with it is this card I've created for a co-worker and new friend.
Using a variety of dies and embossing folders from my stash, Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood dies and stamps this little beauty came to life. Added stamped vellum for the sentiment, some ribbon and enamel dots.
Like my name sake...Attic Inspired Crafter...I love bringing the old back to life so when my husband and I went to the huge yard sale on PEI several years ago, I just had to drag a very old door back home with me!
We stored it for several years as even though I had a vision on how I wanted to use it, I had to sell the idea to the husband as it needed muscle to execute my plan.
My plan, was to paint it red and erect it at the bottom of our very long driveway in a little wooded nook, with a garden in front. And that is what we just did!
Inspiration: Scrap lifted this lay-out from one I seen on pinterest.
Paper line: Theresa Collins Spring Fling with embellishments
Inks: Fired Brick and Twisted Citrus
Extra details include: Stitching, odds and ends from stash, Brads, many sizes of circle punches
Lately I've been seeing a lot of mix media based on faces. My fascination has grown so this past weekend I decided to create my first piece of what I call Modern Art.
For the base I used a piece of wood approximately 14"x 8" x 2". I then covered with left over paper and created on top making more and more layers of paints, sprays, inks, stamps, stencilling, modelling paste, inktense pencils...etc. until I was happy with the results. The best part about creating on wood is that if you hate it you can sand it off and start over (ummmm I did that twice :)
The face was hand drawn and I have to admit I am very pleased with the end result.
