February Stamp Club Project

Our project in Stamp Club this month was painting with embossing powders. We stamped the image with versamark, then added a touch of black embossing powder, followed by silver embossing powder and gold for highlighting at the end. They look very enameled when finished.

Paper Trey Ink February Blog Hop

The Paper Trey Ink February Blog Hop involves using monograms. I did this monogramed card for a wedding. The letters are from PTI. I cut them out in white and purple and layered them so the purple shadowed behind each letter. The embossing folder I used matched the bride's dress.

Anything Goes - including Christmas!

The Friday Copic challenge on the Outlawz this week was Anything Goes (including Christmas). I had not used this Penny Black stamp before, so it was time. The snow is done with the Ice White Pearl Pen.

 First I created my background using Distress Inks and OxyClean. I applied Stormy Sky and Mowed Lawn Distress ink DTP. I then sprinkled oxyclean on the ink and spritz with water. That was set aside to dry. When dry, I wiped off the oxyclean. It did leave some texture on the paper. The images were stamped and colored with copics. The barn was cut out. The fence is from Die-namics. The animals were all popped up. Glitter was added to all the animals and the barn window.
