Tea with the Faeries

I have been working with a stamp from Faerie Song Art Stamps. They have been generous enough to supply the Smeared and Smudged Design Team with some of their wonderful stamps, as well as sponsor one of our contests. Please take a peek at their stamps! Some of them are really incredible!

This is a very whimsical card (that’s what my husband said at least!). I think it came out really sweet. I started off by coloring the image, and then found the paper to coordinate after.

I like the tiny faeries coloring the tea cup! Aren’t they cute? I colored the image in with my watercolor markers, and then added some Diamond Stickles to the wings. Sorry- it’s a little tough to see, but it looks really pretty!

The green patterned paper (DCWV), also has a touch of glitter in it. It ties everything all together I think. The design on the tea cup works really well with the pattern on the paper. Added a nice bright pink grosgrain ribbon for a little more pop and voila!

Now I am off to try and finish my card for the latest Macabre Monday challenge! Peace, Love and Vampires!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
