September Variations by Ria - Charity Dunhauer's Wild Heart...

Welcome to my September Variations posting for this stunning Stamp Wild Heart by Charity Dunhauer...
It was my first time playing with an stamp like this so I was a bit nervous on how to start with it but as soon as the first marker hit the paper, it started to talk to me... So I coloured her with Spectrum Noir markers first and then enhanced it more with Spectrum Noir pencils and odorless mineral spirit...


Materials used:
Wild Heart by Charity Dunhauer
Digipapers made by Moi
Cutting dies,
EK Success retro flower punch
Martha Stewart snowflake punch
Rhinestones
Spectrum Noir markers and pencils
White Molotow marker

I hope you enjoy my card for the Variations week of Charity Dunhauer's Wild Heart....

Variation Week Jane's view

Sweet Pea Stamps

Today is my day to showcase an image from Sweet Pea Stamps for our Variation Week where the whole team are using the Charity Dunhauer's Wild Heart.

To begin with I coloured the image with my Promarkers.  This was not an easy task as I wanted black hair, black clothes and red for the roses and hearts, probably the two hardest colours I find to colour with.  Although I love my Promarkers, there is nothing to blend with the black, the five different gray blending sets have nothing that comes between black and their darkest colour.  This time I have tried using the black Spectrum Noir pencil to help, not sure if I like the outcome though.
 Promarkers and other colouring mediums used
 I used papers from the Crafters Companion - Jan 2014 - Roses are Red.  The paper was used as a backing mount for the card, the tag and a bit added to the inside of the card.  For the sentiment topper I created a simple sentiment - Love needs no words as the image has a 'stitched' mouth (I guess that is most mens wish women had hahaha).  The base layer of the sentiment topper was a lace motif.
 The inside of the card.
The final embellishment to the card was a lovely lace bow finished off with red roses and a small crystal charm.

 Finished card
Ingredients
  • Image -  Charity Dunhauer's Wild Heart
  • Promarkers, SN blendable pencils
  • Dies - Spellbinders Standard Circlels
  • Backing paper - Crafters Companion - Jan 2014 - Roses are Red
  • Ribbon, lace roses and crystal charm from my stash
Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a happy crafting day ahead :)

 Hallo,
   Just a quick little Halloweenish card for you today - I just love these little kittys with the bat wings :)

   I colored her with prismacolor pencils and cut her and the next layer out with Spellbinders dies - added some pumpkin stickers, a skull charm, some orange and black ribbons, and some pearl drops with a tulip fabric paint pen... all on top of some great Halloween paper that I got on sale after Halloween last year and have been patiently waiting to use :).
  Have a great day!!!

Lost Love

Happy Friday everyone!  Here's a great stamp from Sweet Pea's newest artist Maigan Lynn. This stamp is called Lost Love and is available as a Rubber stamp or a digi stamp. This artist is well known for her stunning mermaids and beautiful maidens, esp those trademark eyelashes.  I wanted to do something Halloween themed for Sept, so I am using a bunch of spider themed embellishments and a fun spider themed paper in the background. I added the sentiment Tomb it May Concern.
       Here's a close up of this image.  Be sure and check out all of Maigan Lynn's Art at the store

Are you starting on some Halloween Cards yet?  Sweet Pea stamps has a bunch of amazing Halloween themed stamps (Click here).  Be sure and share your creations with us at the Sweet Pea Stamps Friends and Fans page on Facebook.

Cheers, Holley

Rebecca Sinz's Shaker Box

Hello Everyone,

I have been seeing this technique online of the shaker boxes so I decided I would give it a try.  I used one of the gorgeous images available by Rebecca Sinz called, Aconitum.

The paper is an assortment from my stash of MME papers that I pieces together. The image is colored with my Copics and I used a plastic overlay from one of the plastic covers on my daughter's doll cases. It is my first attempt but definitely can see using this again for some Christmas card images soon. 

Recipe:

Skin: E11,E00,E000, R20
Hair: YR24,YR12, Y11,Y08
Flowers: V22,V20, G14
