Mix alcohol and reinkers in small containers and spray over things you have gathered from your yard or the forest. These will dry fast and you can use them as quick backgrounds for any project. Standard cardstock or glossy cardstock work great. Here I have used glossy cardstock.
I absolutely love this stamp! The possibilities are endless and so are the color combinations. You will see this lovely Geisha all over my blog. For the background I added decoupage with a foam paint brush. Next, before the decoupage dried I added Pearl Ex in shades of black, pink, yellow and orange with a large paint brush. Then coat the entire project with clear embossing powder and heat set. Add colored paper which is overlaid with the stamped and colored image of the Geisha.
Have you ever tried the wood grain technique? This is my first try. I used a brayer to add a light blue and then I went back over the light blue and added the dark blue. The slats were created every 1/2", then I added the board lines and the old nails. The stamp set I used is from Clear Artistic Stamps called "Whispers of Dreams".This is a fun tech and you should try it.
Welcome to Clear Artistic Stamps first blog Hop! This week we are introducing our new Holiday Design Team and the release of 10 new stamp sets. Yes, 10 new stamp sets. Don't miss them-they are delicious! Our blog hop is a short 10 station affair and there will be prizes awarded if you leave a comment at each hop that you visit.
I am the 3D/Mixed Media Designer and I am introducing the new stamp called "Water Rose". See what I have Created with this beautiful set. It is a Treasure Box for any and all those things you want to save just for you. The butterflies on top are searching for the yummy treats in the yellow roses. The butterflies are layered with pop dots so that they appear to be landing on the top of the box.
Start at the beginning or go for your hop from right here. Be sure to leave a comment on each blog so that your name can be entered into the drawing. First prize is the Limited Edition set "Thoughts of an Egret" and there will be other prizes as well.
Glad you are here to share a part of my life. My artwork and designs are such an important part of who I am. So the time has come to display a few of my projects with you.
