Stampendous and Clear Scraps Collaboration: Parrot Party

The Stampendous team has been doing a fun collaboration with Clear Scraps all week long. Since today it Dreamweaver Thursdays, I was sure to infuse a bit of stenciling and die-cut goodness into my project.

I made a scrapbook page featuring not only a fun piece of acrylic from Clear Scraps, but a stencil and die-cut from Dreamweaver as well as a stunning Parrot and a companion leaf. For the acrylic piece, I took the Quatrefoil stencil and applied alcohol inks to it. Here's a closer look.

I love how the various colors of alcohol inks blend together. I used a purple, a cornflower blue, a yellow and a green. I also wrote my title with a Sharpie on the acrylic sheet.

I colored the parrot and large leaves with my Tombow watercolor markers. You can see in the above photo the Leafy Branch die cut that I used with a metallic cardstock.

I used some washi tape to help secure the Clear Scraps piece to my layout. There's also a hidden staple to further keep it attached. How would you like to see more? Please be sure to visit the the links below to see all of the posts for this wonderful 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

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
