Halloween in White

 Happy Halloween everyone!  Here's a great card I did today on some gorgeous paper in whites, as you can see it has a shimmery background that is embossed with ghosts.  Then I added some off white paper in which I die cut and embossed a graveyard scene as well as some grave stones and some skull and crossbones.  Can you just imagine the ghosts flying up out of the graves?

This gorgeous image is called Twinkle Twinkle Little Star from artist Katerina Koukiotis.

Here's a close up of the image, I think this gorgeous image could be used anytime of year!  Here in Austin we have a huge bat colony that is quite famous, so everyone loves to see bats.


You can download this gorgeous image and make a card for that Halloween treat today! or grab this stamp and use her for any other fun project you like.  If you do, share your creation with us over on the Sweet Pea Stamps Friends and Fan page at Facebook.

Cheers, Holley

Corner bookmark with Fae from Teresa Sherman.....


Goodmorning Sweeties,
Hope your weather is better then what we are having here in the Netherlands as this is my least favourite season :) I am a summerchild in heart and soul and love everything sunny and bright....Only thing nice now are the red/orange leaves as long as they stay on the trees hahahah
So today I want to show you a corner bookmark that I made with the Gorgeouss stamp Fae by Teresa Sherman.

I coloured Fae with a new alcohol marker that I found here in Holland. They are called Stylefile markers and have a small bullitnib and a chisel nib like copics have. No brush nib yet :) but they really have a nice feel in the hand and that is important for me ;) and super PURPLE TONES hahahaha

Hope you like my corner bookmark with Fae. You can find her in the Shop.

Acacia Fairy

Sweet Pea Stamps

Today is my day to showcase an image from Sweet Pea Stamps and I chose to work with Norma Burnell's - Acacia Fairy, I do so love these zantangle images, so beautifully drawn and enormous fun to colour :)

I think I stretched myself a bit far with this creation, 7 hours to make and trying to colour 4 images the same was a first for me.  By the end of it, with the images being quite small my eyes were all over the place hahahaha.

IMAGE

To begin with I made the box using a great template which was in one of the Tattered Lace magazines. Next I removed the background from the digi and replaced it with what I hoped would match up with the card I used,  In real life the colour is not a bad match but alas under the lights when taking the photo is is showing up far more pink/red than it really is.  I then printed the image 4 times so I can put one on every other section of the octagon.

 Next I coloured the images with Spectrum Noir Blending Pencils, certainly an interesting task colouring 4 images at the same time :)  Gold pen was added to parts of the digi and the background was coloured over again with one of the crayons and with an embossing folder underneath to give texture.
Here you can see how using a crayon with an embossing folder underneath creates the texture.
With all four digis coloured I mounted them using gold card and Spellbinders A2 Fancy Weave die.
 Onto decorating the box now, I cut a total of 8 of the fancy weave sections, four for the digi backing and four to fill in the remaining four sections of the box.  Next, using a Tattered Lace buckle die and the same card I cut another 12 elements.  One of each of these will be placed around the top sections of the box and the remaining four in the centres of the non digi panels.
 A simple tag with blue gems.  The same blue gems were used to decorate the top of the box.
To finish off a big bow in gold organza and turquoise ribbon.  Two gold lilies were added to the bow and the tag hung from it.  And there we go, all done.





Ingredients
  • Image -  Norma Burnell's - Acacia Fairy
  • Spectrum Noir blending pencils
  • Dies - Spellbinders A2 Fancy Weave and Tatter Lace buckles
  • Ribbon and gems from my stash
Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a lovely crafting day ahead of you :)

Helena Reis - Artist week, Milo´s view


I´ve used Helena Reis´s Purple Gaze.

big hugs Milo =)





Featured artist - Helena Reis - Tera's view

 Hallo,
    I really had fun with this image - although I may have gone a bit wild with the pearl drop pen I really like how she turned out!!!
   I used 'Purple Gaze' by Helena Reis and colored her with copics. I edged the main image with a silver metallic pen and layered her to DP that I distressed a bit and some pretty gray ribbon.
  I really like how her wings turned out too :) she is fun to color and I have a few more ideas in store for her!!!
   Take Care
