Gettin’ Punky With It…

I am participating in my very first Club Anya and Friends Challenge! There was just NO WAY I could pass this one up! It’s all about “Gettin’ Punky!” No, not Punky Brewster. Like real punk. Think CBGB, Rancid, London, Anarchy…get the picture? Check out my rockin’ card!

I really love how this turned out. I worked my tail off on this one, and it turned out just how I wanted. I lamented over the paper for so long…ask my husband (who by the way, was totally helpful! Thanks, Babe!). I colored in Miss Ebony fairly quickly… but the paper…oh the paper! It was tough. I knew what I wanted (kind of) but couldn’t find it. Then, it all came together!

Now, it was suggested we add metal embellishments. Perfect! I knew I needed to do that anyway. I added jump rings to my eyelets, and take a close look at Ebony to see where I added them to her!

Please click on the pics for a better look. It’s tough to see what I did with a small photo. I gave her earrings! I really wanted to give her like, 4 or 5 up one side… but her ears don’t show! So that was out. But I LOVE how she looks with those cool silver hoops! I also gave her a teeny bit of glitz on her eyes. Not too much though… punks are so NOT about the glitter!

You can see I threw on a couple of staples, and of course I just HAD to put the Anarchy symbol on here as well! I thought about distressing the card a bit, but I decided that was no the “punk way”. We’re not doin’ grunge here!

You can see here that I cut one of the skulls out of this sick Basic Grey paper (BG! I know! It’s crazy!), and pop dotted it. With the other skull, I cut around the top of it so that I could place my skull and crossbones paper (Rusty Pickle) under it. I didn’t want to lose them under the other paper… they just had to show! They were one of the reasons I chose this paper, so that’s how I remedied that problem.

So, what do YOU think? Is it punk enough? What do you think of Ebony’s hair? I love it, and I’m thinkin’ I just may need to put green in my hair again! It has been such a looong time! And this blonde I am currently sportin’ (since the teal has rinsed away) needs to GO! But I digress… enjoy the card, and have an inspiring day!

This is wicked cool, Ali! But it's missing one thing. You should've drawn tats on her arm!!!! Love the earrings. That was a cool idea!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
