I Got My “Sites” Set On You…

Sometimes, when you get inspiration, you’ve just gotta run with it. Run until you’ve exhausted all ideas. Just to make sure you didn’t miss anything. Today I am sharing another Smeared Ink card, (from the Chicks Dig Guns Collection) using the Chick in her undies. I have once again added sites to her, as though she’s bein’ tracked by her enemy. Husband? Husband’s Mistress? Sniper? I’ll let you decide. But this time, I colored it in a bit differently.

And to refresh your memory, here is how I had colored her in last time:

Here’s a close up of this version:

See all of the differences? I really wanted the sites to stand out again. But differently. So this time, I colored them in with red marker. A nice, bright red. Nix picked out the green for her, uh, outfit. And of course, the sentiment is from this collection too.

See the brown paper? That’s actually a flower. It’s a huge magnolia, but since I was using such a small piece, you can’t tell. I like that it looked almost like a fingerprint.

Ok, I’m gonna use another Chick for the next card. I’ve got her all colored in and everything! I just hafta get her layout straight in my head! So which version do you like better? What stamps do you have that you can create a similar effect (even if it isn’t so grizzly!)? Look around your stamp space and see how you can do the same technique! Have an inspiring day!!!

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 "
