Something Sweet and a Goddess...with Paint Chips!

I love paint chips. From an artist's perspective...I just love to look at colors...figure out what colors and tones are used to make them, and checking out which combos look good together. And from a crafter's perspective, I love to use them in fun ways around the house and on my projects. So, for both of my projects for today, I have used a paint chip. Let's start with A Step in the Dark.

We are sponsored by Smeared Ink and the challenge is Anything Goes. Nice and simple! I used the lovely Luna for my card. I colored her with alcohol markers.

Can you spot the paint chip? It's the pretty textured metallic piece behind Luna. It's a Martha Stewart chip, and I thought it was lovely. It has a great sheen. My Goddess sentiment is a rubber stamp, also from Smeared Ink.

This is an ATC for the new Wicked Wednesday challenge. The theme is Something Sweet and we are sponsored by Sami Stamps. The paint chip is a little more obvious here, I think. It's 2 versions of the same color. One is shiny, and the other is an eggshell. I came across a scrap of Basic Grey's Neapolitan paper, and I had to use it with the ice cream...though now I am not entirely sold on my paint chip color.

I used a combination of watercolor and alcohol markers for this little girl. I really want some of her ice cream! Please be sure to check out the rest of the Wicked Wednesday and A Step in the Dark ladies by visiting the blogs. Tomorrow I will have another project for the Dreamweaver Stencils and Woodware  collaboration. 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 "
