Inspired by a Peacock…and a Vamp!

Can you be inspired by both and make one project? I say “hell yeah!” First, I was working with Lily (Bitten) one of the brand spankin’ new digis from my wonderful friend Tonya. Click HERE to see the others and buy the set for yourself! Then, Kim, one of my fellow DT members over at Smeared and Smudged has her latest challenge up… be inspired by a peacock! Well, let’s get on with it right???


I made a 6x6 card and used a whole bunch of papers and stamps to create the card. Please click on any of my pics to see them bigger.


Isn’t she beautiful? I love the sexual energy she’s giving off. She reminds me of Bella from the black Dagger Brotherhood. She is colored with my Spectracolor pencils.


And here are some peacock feathers! I used colors inspired by a peacock too. Not so vibrant… I muted it down a bit.


Don’t all of these papers and stamps give you the idea of feathers? Oh! And my lovely sentiment is from some Blog Candy I won from Alex. The stamp is from Sweet Pea Stamps.

I think the card came out really pretty considering all the different patterns I chose to use. And the colors are really chill… Which is just what I’m about to do! Go and chill…! Have a Happy Mother’s Day to all my Mommy friends!

Oooooh, pretttty!!! You did such a beautiful job with this gorgeous image. She is definitely BDB-Bella-like. I just finished the newest BDB today (sniff, sad that it's over) and those characters are on my mind today. :)

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
