Downward Dog

Hello! This week, the Stampendous Design Team is making project with the theme, "Balance Buddies." We have several types of animals that are giving yoga a try. I decided to work with the Downward Dog stamp today. 
Supplies:
Stampendous:
V344: Downward Dog
DCP1005: Fitted Frames Set A
MPW811: Mixed Media Paper

Other:
Bo Bunny: Pink Punch Vintage 12" x 12" Paper- 12PPV951
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers: 022, 027, 031, 041, 050, 065, 070, 072, 080, 303
Imagine: Kaleidacolor Ink Pad in Calypso, Ink Potion No. 9, VersaFine Clair Ink in Nocturne
Canson Mixed Media Paper
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ Runner
Large Acrylic Block
Embossed Dot cardstock in dark teal

Directions:
1. Stamp Downward Dog on to a piece of Canson Mixed Media Paper with VersFine Clair Ink.

2. Color the image using the colors listed.

3. Die cut the image using the Large "V" Fitted Frame.

4. Apply Calypso Ink directly to a large acrylic block, swiping the color from top to bottom, horizontally.

5. Spritz the inked block with Ink Potion No. 9.

6. Press the inked block on to a piece of Mixed Media White Paper and let sit for about 4 minutes.

7. Remove the block, and cut out the inked area to the desired shape and size.

8. Cut a piece of embossed dark teal cardstock to 5 1/4" x 4."

9. Create the card base out of Pink Punch Vintage cardstock, cut to 5 1/2" x 8 1/2."

10. Glue all layers.

I really enjoy doing the ink splotch technique with an acrylic block. You get such a wonderful watercolor effect without much effort at all. And the Kaleidacolor ink pads have such a wide range of palettes, that you can get a wonderful variety of backgrounds. I'll be back with another fun animal doing yoga later this week. Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to see more. 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
