It's Stamptember! Simon Says Stamp It!


It's Stamptember!

I made this tag and was not to happy how it turned out, It definitely needed more work!


 I had embossed with distress embossing powder in shabby shutters. I had not used a distress embossing powder before. I found out it did not want to take color from my red marker, it sort of laid on top. And the stamped words in jet black ink was more gray. So I layered with 3 different red markers to achieve a deeper color and outlined my stamped words and butterfly with a black marker to intensify the stamping. Tag was outlined with shabby shutters distress ink to finish. What do you think...



Better?

The World Needs More Books


The World Needs More Books.


 I papered a # 8 size tag, colored, stenciled and then stamped my books on top of the background letting it show through.  I double stamped the books for a bigger stack omitting the coffee cup that was originally on top. Using distressed crayons to color the books. And outlining them with a black marker.
Finishing by adding a (young college looking) guy from Tim Holtz paper dolls that fit perfectly on top of the stack.

Dreams ATC


My second post today! Like I said I love ATC's! It was the first thing I made when I started crafting 7 years ago. Since then my passion has become stamping and mixed media, I have learned a lot in the year that I have been stamping by just going for it.
 Here is an atc I grunged up by filing the edges and adding jet black ink & distressing in old paper.


 I used Inkadinkado doodle flowers stamped with monarch orange and fern green archival inks. Coloring with water color pencils. Filling in the areas around the flowers with mustard seed distress ink. And finished by stamping the sentiment on top with stazon forest green.
