Love and hearts challenge at Lost coast designs and Carmens veranda blog.

What a fun challenge, who doesn't like "love and hearts".
Of course I chose the love couple "Frank and Franks bride.
This is what you need for this card.
Barn door
Saltwater taffy
Musterd seed
Black soot
Red posca marker
Sakura Pigma 
White gellpen
Versafine 0nyx black
Black paint/ink to make spletters
Water based markers 
Red sparkless for the hearts border

How to make the card.

I started with an acrylic heart.
If you don't have that, you can also cut a heart from an accitate sheet.
With the distressink Fired brick and Musterd seed I printed the heart on the paper.
Keep repeating that until you are satisfied with the result.
Make a paper mask.
Use the outside of the mask.
And make the black hearts on the red heart with
 a stencil with small hearts and distressink Black soot.
Leave the black soot on the stencil and spray some water on it.
Stamp with this top left and bottom right.
With the waterproof black fineliner you can now make winding lines along the heart.
Color the hearts red with the posca marker.
Stamp frank and his bride on a piece of paper.
Color them with markers or pencils.
I made her dress to a polka dot dress and Franks suit to a pinstripe suit.
Stamp the hearts and curls border and color the hearts red with the red posca marker.
Sprinkle the hearts in the border with red glitter.
For the corners i used a border from the brushstrokes set.
And did the same under the feet of Frank and his bride.
This way they look more grounded.
"Love is awsome" is from the misc words sheet.
The word "is", i cut of from sisters.
Draw some black and red lines around the words.
And run the red inkpad along the edges of the card.
Glue the card on a black cardstock and you are done.
Come and join our challenge at Lost Coast Designs/Carmens Veranda blog.
You may even join with other brands, please read the rules first.
Maybe you are the next winner of the challenge,
 and win some rubberstamps.

# 159 "Winged things" challenge at lost Coast Designs/Carmens Veranda stamps. Printers tray.

Today my contribution to the LCD/CV challenge "Winged things".
I made this printers tray (20x30cm) for a stamp friend's birthday.
It contains quite a few stamps, but I especially like the butterflies.
Here's a list of what I used and a brief description.
Spike and Lucy. (only the girl)
Sentiment from Carmens Veranda, 

Broken China
Twisted citron
Fossilized amber
Rustic wildernis
Rusty hinge
Black waterproof ink.

For the frame, i used acrylic paint in the same colors.
For the spletters some white and brown paint.
Pencils for coloring.
White gellpen.
Nuvo aqaua shimmer for some glitter accents.
I first drew the frame on paper, so I knew exactly where the compartments were.
This makes it easier to determine where which stamp will be placed.
First I sanded the frame and painted it in various colors.
When that is drying I smeared the ink with water on the paper.
Then I stamped the stamps, 
The big butterfly of the Bitterfly set I stamped each wing turned left and right.
And I glued the 3 small butterflies loose so that they have depth.
Then I stamped the background around the stamps. 
Color the details with the pencils.
You can finish the it of with a white gel pen.
Don't forget to do some stamping on the edges of the frame as well.
Just splash the white and brown paint and you're done.
make a small Happy birthday tag and bind it to the foil giftrap.
I hope you enjoyed it and that you will soon get started for our challenge. 
You can win new stamps, so come and participate. 
The challenge runs until the end of this month.
Good luck.

Challenge at Lost Coast Designs, "Something seasonal"

Hello blog visitor.
Did you guys have a good Christmas, I did.
So now we go to the new year.
So I made an invitation card for a new years party.
I used these stamps for it.

I used Distress oxide peacock feathers and Seedles preserves.
And a waterproof black ink.
A stencil.

I started by inking the stencil with seedles preserves.
Spray with a little water and print on the paper.

Then stamp and mask the girl with waterproof black ink.
If you find masking too difficult, you can also stamp and stick her on thin paper.

Use the other stamps as on the example.
But of course you can also make your own mix.

Remove the mask and color the girl with the distress oxide.

Stamp the words from the Party words sheet and glue them on the card.
Make an outline with black and the distress colors.
Finally, splash some black ink here and there on the card.
I hope you liked it.
And there is still time to join the challenge
You have a chance to win beautiful rubber stamps.

For me this is my last contribution of this year, 
So I wish you a nice end of the year party.
And see you next year.
