Featured Artist-Olivia's View #Lisa Victoria

This week our featured artist is the super talented, Lisa Victoria. She has some amazing dragon and fantasy themed digis and stamps that are sure to amaze you.

I decided to use the image,  Fire Dragon
I had this great DCVW paper called Once a Upon a Time that was perfect to pair with the image. I then colored the dragon in Copics and tried to get a more reptile scale feel with it by dotting the scales on in different shades of green.  I added some stickles as well to the dragon and distressed it with my ink pads.

Featured Artist Week: Lina's View

She makes the cutest images. Lisa Victoria. I really love her style. This little dragon saying hello to the ladybug is just way to adorable. But when I was done with the card, I figured I should really make a matching envelope. Cause it's that kind of detail I know the recipient would really love. So here's a video of how I made the envelope with lining.



As always I used Copics to color the image, but have unfortunately lost my litte PostIt note, telling the colors.

I made the card somewhat flat, with not to much bulk, since it had to fit inside the envelope. So in order to add some other kind of interest, I made it into a gate fold card instead. You can make any fold you like, just keep in mind that some 'types' of cards quickly become more bulky than others.

I almost always stitch on my cards, but on this one it became almost a must. Again keeping the bulk down, it adds the perfect little detail.

The stamp I used is Dragonluck by Lisa Victoria, available in the Sweet Pea Stamp store as both rubber and digi.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Artist of the Week Featuring Lisa Victoria: Aletha’s Pick

Happy Tuesday! I hope that everyone had a great weekend and you got over the Monday Blues.

This week here at our Sweet Pea Stamp Design Team blog we are featuring images created by Lisa Victoria for Sweet Pea Stamps (SPS). We got to pick which image and I picked one of the cutest dragons that I have seen in a while. Meet Lisa’s “Butterfly Dragon.” Lisa’s image can be found in digital format or as rubber stamps, whichever media you like.


I printed out Butterfly Dragon on cardstock and colored with Copics. After coloring, I distressed all the edges and added distress ink to all sides. My happy dragon was then layered on green cardstock that was distressed in the same manner.

Copics used:
Dragon’s body:
YG21, 23, 25, and
YR12, 15, 18, and E09
Wings and Flower:
YG21, 23, 25, and
YR12, 15, 18, and E09, and
Y00, 11, 15, 17
Background:
W00, 0, 1, 2, and
Y11, YR12




I distressed the designer paper and cardstock for my base. The twine I stained with some brown ink. The embellishments are some clear stamps and a heart charm, both from my ever growing supply of stamps and metal objects.


We have a monthly challenge at One Sweet Challenge. July’s theme is “red, white, and blue.” We would love for you to share any of your projects at our SPS Facebook group. Come like Sweet Pea’s Facebook page and stay on top of all the happenings within Sweet Pea Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you come visit every day and be inspired with all the pieces of art from some very talented designers.

Featured Artist by Jane - Lisa Victoria

Sweet Pea Stamps

Hello folks, here I am again with another creation for  Sweet Pea Stamps.  Today I am sharing with you my DT creation for Artist Week where the whole team use an image by the artist Lisa Victoria.  I have chosen the image Fire Dragon to work with :)

This is a rather simple card and an even more simple blog post as I am still without an Internet connection in my house and am also in the process of packing for my return trip to Saudi on Wednesday morning.

Here is a close-up of the coloured digi.  For the colouring I used the new Spectrum Noir blend able pencils.  The first time I used the pencils I also used the blending solution which removes the wax and only leaves the coloured pigment behind leaving an effect very similar to that of our beloved Promarkers and Copics.  This time I have not used the blending solution but instead built up the image with several layers of the crayons so I can see what the different effect is.

 For the corners of the card and the flames from the dragon I have used fire coloured gold leaf which I have just bough but it is in my house and I am writing this at my daughter house (saying as she has an Internet connection :) :) :) ) and I can't remember the name of it.  I do love the outcome though and an rather glad I bought it the other day.  Now I wish I had bought more but that will have to be next year now.


Thank you for stopping by :) and hope you have a happy crafting day ahead of you :) :) :)

Ingredients
  • Digi Fire Dragon by Lisa Victoria  Sweet Pea Stamps
  • Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils
  • Dies - X-Cut for the black mount and Tattered Lace for the alphabet

Featured Artist Week: Tera's View

 Hallo,
  Our featured artist this week is Lisa Victoria  and I really love her little dragons!!!
  This little guy is 'Marshmellow Dragon' and I used him to make  a gift tag for a favorite summer treat - 'smores :)
   I figured he would make a great tag for this little gift of graham crackers, marshmallows and hersey bars :)
  I colored him with prismacolor pencils and cut him out to match a tag that I saved from a new pair of jeans and covered with paper :)
  This cute little dragon can be found in the digi section .
   Have a great day!!!
       Tera

Variation Week: Holley's View

Here's an image from one of the newest artists at Sweet Pea stamps Heather Valentin. She sells only Rubber stamps at the store and this image is called Molly - What a catch.  Have you been enjoying all the amazing creations with this stamp all week? Well, here's my creation using this fun image.  This image is just darling, I gave her pink hair an turquoise clothes that match the embellishments I put on the card.

Here's an enlargement of the image itself.  Don't you love the cute fish button I added to the center of the flower?  how about those adorable flower brads? don't they match that funky ribbon just perfectly?
Hope you have had a wonderful week.  I have a lot of friends and family who love to go fishing so I know this card will be a big hit with them.  Hope you are all having a wonderful summer.  Have some card making fun too!  When you do make one, share it with us at our Facebook Friends group-Click here.

Cheers, Holley
