PaperArtsy Challeng #8 - White Space

I'm entering this Altered Clipboard for the PaperArtsy White Space Challenge. I altered this clipboard using PaperArtsy Fresco Paints and stamps. It has a pretty good amount of white space, even though it more like pink & purple space. The stamps are PaperArtsy Lin Brown sets 24 and 22. I stamped with Ranger Archival Black Ink. I made the background using Leandra's technique using Cut & Dry Foam. It's one of my favorite ways to make a background. Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Card Challenges #20 - Color Challenge

It's time for another challenge over at Christmas Card Challenges. This week we have a Color Challenge. It's never too early to start on your Christmas cards! I can't wait to see what you create.


For my card I used Cranberry Christmas Papers from DCWV. I liked this patterned paper that had the colors of the challenge, but no green so I colored in some of the white leaves with a some green Copic Markers so it would match the challenge. I used a couple of papers from this pad. The wood NOEL came from Michaels. Thanks for stopping by!

Wendy Vecchi Mini Journal Page

I created a this page in my Wendy Vecchi Fat Little Mini Book. I stamped her background stamp in Archival Ink and colored in each square with different Archival Ink Colors and a small blender tool. The large flower is a Wendy Vecchi Art Part. I heat embossed it with a mixture of distress embossing powders and enamel embossing powder to add more texture. I added a Wendy Vecchi button and tied a bow with Tim Holtz trim. The stamp is a Wendy Vecchi wood mount stamps, I only used a part of the sentiment. Thanks for stopping by!

Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #23 - Dimension


It's time for another challenge over at the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge. Our theme this month is "Dimension." Just create a project that has some dimension. Our guest designer is the fabulous Wendy Vecchi!! She's made a gorgeous inspiration piece. Our sponsor is Stampers Anonymous. We will have TWO random winners and they will each receive a Wendy Vecchi stamp set and stencil!! How awesome is that?

 I had so much fun playing with all my Wendy Vecchi products. I ended up making 8 pages filling up one of Wendy's Mini Mat Fat Little Books. Here is one page in the book. I will share the other pages throughout the month. 

For this page I created the background using Tim Holtz Crayons and a Bret Weldle stencil. 


To create the flower I stamped a Wendy Stamp from a set called Sketch Art on her Whiteout paper. I used Ranger Archival Ink to stamp the flower and Wendy Vecchi Archival inks in Tiger Lily and Orange Blossom to color in the flower. 



I used a heat gun to heat up the flower and bend the petals - that's the cool part about her Whiteout (and Blackout) papers. The center of the flower, the heart, and the leaves are Wendy art parts. To color the leaves I painted them with white Gesso and then added Wendy Vecchi Archival ink in Pink Peony and Ranger Archival ink in Rose Madder. Then I stamped on the leaves with a Wendy background stamp. The fence on the bottom is a Wendy Stencil and I used Wendy's Embossing Paste colored with Tim Holtz Wilted Violet Distress Spray Stain. The sentiment are words from Tim Holtz Chit Chat.
