I just love these birds by Tim Holtz, they are so quirky. I made this card for my nephews birthday.
I used masks and colour cloud inks to create the background and distress inks to paint the birds and accessories. I used the dies to cut out the birds but had to cut the other bits by hand.
The theme for the week this week over at the SplodgeAway blog is 2 masks 1 project. I have had this owl made up since I was down at my Mum’s house in the summer but never got around to doing anything with him. I found some dimensional glitter from Viva Decor in a craft shop down there and used it through the Ernie the Owl Disk, I thought it looked rather cool. The other mask I used for the embellishments and the card background is Leaf The Lot. I inked through the mask with perfect medium and embossed with gold embossing powder and then cut out the leaves. The background was made by simply embossing the card through the Grand Calibur and then applying distress ink over the top.
Only another few days to enter our “Anything Goes challenge” over at Crafty Bloggers Network to win a prize from Rick St Dennis. Here is my inspiration Monday card using the cute little bear waiting at the North Pole.
I made this project some time ago and had forgotten all about it until I was reminded that it was due up on the Splodge Away blog today! It is craftcycle week this week and the team have got some pretty awesome projects lined up for you
I used the fancy lattice mask to make the patterns in the paint on the wooden part and I used the Floral Framer mask to make the flowers.
The SplodgeAway show on Create and Craft tv last week was fab! there were SO many brilliant samples created for it I was blown away by them all. I am really very lucky to be part of such a talented DT, hop over to the SplodeAway Blog to see them all as they are being showcased there all this week. Here are the projects I made (although Suzie did a better job of showing them off – thanks Suzie):
For more details of the products and better pictures, please go take a look on the SplodgeAway Blog.
This week on the blog over at SplodgeAway every one has been showing off a project of their choice with no particular theme in mind so here is the card that I made using the Celtic framer mask, I sponged glue through the mask and applied silky glitter to it (from creative expressions but I can’t remember the correct name)
I am really excited as I have received my DT package to prepare for the next Create and Craft show on August 27th. While I obviously can’t show you what is in it I can tell you that I am pretty sure you are going to LOVE the products I know I do
Hi everyone, I hope we are all enjoying the sunshine, I know we are here. This week over on the SplodgeAway blog the theme is Summer Loving, I knew exactly what I was going to create as soon as I knew this. I have been to a demo at the Papeterie in Aberdeen by the brilliant Sue Wilson and she created a card similar to this so that is where my inspiration came from.
I had a couple of pieces of card left over from another project but not enough to create a complete background so I cut triangular strips and created the rays. I used the Psychedelic mask set and some wild honey distress ink on the Easy Ink card to create the paper originally.
Hop on over to the blog to see what the rest of the crew have in store for you this week.
Well ok they are not roses, but they are red 🙂 When I started to colour this Bugaboo image , I had them in yellow, then I remembered that for the new challenge over at ABC challenges, they should be red, so I ended up colouring over the top. Thank goodness for Copic pens! I used a mask from SplodgeAway to make the background.
This week on the SplodgeAway blog myself and my fellow DT members are sharing our favourite things to do with our masks, one of my favourites is using them with my Gelli plate.
The masks are great for this, they clean up really well afterwards too. The effects you can create with them are great with both first and second prints. Go on, have a go, its great fun, even your kids can have a go, but beware its messy and adictive!
Here is a card I made using the Hex-o-Star Mask and a topper from a CD by La Pashe.
