Mail Art in Stampers' Sampler

I was so excited when I received my Stampers' Sampler issue, opened it up and found my decorated envelope right on the first page :)

I used a combination of VivaLasVegaStamps and Rubber Dance Stamps.

 

Happy Crafting ♥

Challenge #234 at UYS - Butterflies

I used the Tim Holtz Mixed Media 2 dies for my tag, added Gesso and stamped it with StaZon in Rusty Brown. 

I cut the butterflies with the Tim Holtz Thinlits and added a sentiment from VLVS. A piece of Jute Rope finished my project :)

I try to show you the effect of the die cut covered with Texture Paste, looks so cool IRL ...

Challenge #233 at UYS

Welcome back to our challenge at Use Your Stuff!
I decided to make a canvas with the beautiful choice of colours. They look a bit darker than IRL, but still, I like it ....

I used the Mixed Media dies from Tim Holtz, Gesso and lots of paint. The die cuts are the Tim Holtz Wildflowers. 

 
Some close ups ... 



Happy Crafting ♥♥♥

New DT member at EyeConnectCrafts!



This is my debut posting as a new member of the Design Team at EyeConnectCrafts.

I chose to work with the large scalloped Picture Frame.

I applied Gesso for some texture and added acrylic paint in different colors, also a metallic paint to give it a more vintage look. I added some hemp cord with a little star attached to one side and used it as a frame of my stamped panel.

To make it stand up I cut a piece of cardboard to hold it upright.


Happy Crafting
