SISC71: Your Favorite Challenge!

This is a fantastic StampInsanity Challenge!!! You get to pick one of your favorite previous challenges, and make a new project with it! Well, since I love so many of the SI challenges, I couldn’t pick just one…so I chose 3! I used #38: It’s All About Me!, #41: Hard Core Hardware, and #69: Goin’ Goth (really…how could I not go with that one?!). I also chose to work with Pierrette, who is still one of my all time favorite images.

First, let me say that I still can’t get purple to photograph properly! It is so frustrating! Because her dress is fabulous and dark, and here it looks washed out and blue. But trust me, it’s a grapey purple.

For challenge 38, I decided to color Pierrette in as if she were me. So, in comes the purple and teal. I opted to not give her funky colored hair (there are times when my hair isn’t dyed!), and wicked makeup.

For challenge 41, I decided to work with some staples. First, I punched some on in the corners of the black cardstock. But, it needed more, so I made a border around the edge of the cardstock as well.

I also added some Mermaid Stickles to the bottom of the card. As far as Challenge 69 goes…I don’t think I need to say much! She’s pretty gothed out (though she is totally more goth in person. Damn purple!). But, add into that the metallic flame paper, the tearing, the hardware, etc…and I’ve got myself a gothed out card.

So what’s your favorite StampInsanity Challenge? I can’t wait to see! But before you go off and start creating a masterpiece, please be sure to visit the rest of the Ward 2 gals! Thanks for stopping by. 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 "
