M is for Mom


Greetings! This month, the Artists in Residence are working with the theme, "M is for..." so I decided to go with M is for Mom. Mother's Day is almost here, and my mom (thankfully) loves to get my homemade cards, so I figured I'd make a card that was very well suited to her. My mom loves all things steampunked. She is so cool. She loves texture and neutrals and gears...and well, all the stuff I put on this card!

I started off with the Gears Stencil and the Vintage Creative Medium and let that speak t me about what to do next. I knew the Vertigo would be a fun way to spell out Mom, and inking it up with StazOn helped it to stand out more. I didn't ink the Vertigo completely, but varied the amount of ink I used on the letters to give some more visual interest. I used assorted shaded of brown ink, some ultra fine glitter and Fireworks! Spray for some shine.

Supplies:
Imagine:
Vertigo in Tilted
StazOn in Spiced Chai
Creative Medium in Vintage
Fireworks! Spray in Desert Sand, Tuxedo Black
Delicata Ink in Brown Shimmer
Kaleidacolor Ink in Cappucino Delight
Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa, Desert Sand
On Point Glue

Other:
Stampendous: Gears Stencil, Mahogonay Ultra Fine Glitter, Steampunk Gears Perfectly Clear Set, Mixed Media White Paper
Quickutz: Diesel Letter Dies
Recollections: Cream Large Card Base

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
