This is my entry for Rainbow Lady's DT.
It's a Tim Holtz die, which I cut out with my sizzix big shot and triple embossed. After gluing it together, I attached a broach pin to the back. I later put my name on it and am now using it as my name badge at work!
Creative Expressions Calling card challenge:
This is an A5 landscape card matted and layered, distress inks used; antique linen, tea dye and vintage photo. I first blended my background with antique linen, stamped over with checkered stamp then dusted over with mica powders (antique set). Spritzed with water and heat set. Stamped figure and aeroplane. Distressed the edges with scissors then inked. Embossed the bottom right corner and whilst molten, stamped into to leave the impression.The topper (ATC) was done in the same way, then eyelet set twice, ribbon threaded through and attached to a clip to look like the plane is flying the tag (banner). Finished off with a border at the bottom cut from a Martha stuart punch. Stamps used are a mix of Tim holtz, Creative Expressions and Andy Skinner.
Another beautiful 'Creative Expressions' stamp.One of my favorites. Square card stamped in the centre with the rose, then used a large corner swirl stamped opposite corners. Blend worn lipstick ink around the stamped corners. Using the worn lipstick ink, lift with a waterbrush and paint the rose. Red cardstock, black cardstock and red patterned paper. Tear the patterned paper, tear the black cardstock slightly larger,mat and layer.Circle nesties, cut two sizes from the centre of stamped card, layer them up at different depths to give added dimension. Finish off with a bit of ribbon, flowers and sticky gems.
FernThe photo doesn't do this card justice...
Grunge flowerThis card was fun to do. The flower was made using grungepaper. The background was distress ink pads; mustard seed,spiced marigold shabby shutters and peeled paint. Cosmic Shimmer mica powders (circus brights set). The stamp set I used is from stampendous birthday petals. I fist coloured an area of grungepaper with each of the distress inks, then stamped a number of petals onto the coloured grunge,and dusted with mica powders, then cut out. While the grunge is still damp with the inks you can mold each petal into shape. Layer the petals up and set a giant eyelet in place for the centre of flower.
