4. Cut out the turtle.

5. Paint the tag using a back and forth (east to west) motion with Cobalt Turquoise Hue, Prussian Blue Hue, and Transparent Yellow Iron Oxide using a scruffy brush. You can mix the colors with some water if you wish. Let dry.

6. Tape the Scales Stencil on top of the tag and apply VersaMark ink with a Large Dauber.

7. Emboss with Detail Capri embossing powder.

8. Apply Textured Sand Paste around the edge of the tag with the Palette Knife. Be sure not to overwork the paste, especiall on top of the embossed areas. Let dry.

9. Paint a wash of Prussian Blue Hue on to the texture paste.

10. Using the Molotow pen, draw in highlights on to the turtle's shell and the white's of his eyes.

11. Apply Goosebumps all over the turtle with a brush. Make it thick.

12. Apply Quinacridone Gold all over the Textured Sand border.

13. Stamp the sentiment on to vellum using Jet Black StazOn.

14. Die cut the sentiment sing the Large "J" Fitted Frame.

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

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 "
