Little Mushroom

Greetings! This week, the Stampendous Design Team has been sharing projects "Celebrate Nature." I used the very pretty Little Mushroom stamp set, along with some chalks and Zig Clean Color Markers. 
Supplies:
Stampendous:
QS5021: Little Mushroom
QD5021: Little Mushroom Die Set

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Madras Blue
Zig Clean Color Markers: Butterfly- 023, 052, 070. Mushroom- 041, 043, 045, 046, 064, 075, 096, 302, 900, 901
Imagine: VersaFine Clair Ink in Nocturne
Scrapbook Adhesives: EZ Runner
Canson: Mixed Media Paper
Nuvo: Jewel Drops in Sea Breeze
Colored Chalks
Pro Art: Spray Fixative

Directions:
1. Stamp the Little Mushroom on to Mixed Media Paper with Nocturne Ink.

2. Color the stamped image in with the Zig Clean Color Markers listed.

3. Apply colored chalk to the background of the colored image.

4. Trim the image by hand with scissors.

5. Stamp the sentiment with Nocturne Ink.

6. Use the coordinating die to cut out the sentiment.

7. Color the sentiment with chalk.

8. Spray the sentiment and colored image with Spray Fixative, to keep the chalk from smearing.

9. Cut the card base out of Madras Blue cardstock, cut to 4 1/4" x 11."

10. Adhere both layers to the base with EZ Runner.

11. Apply Nuvo Jewel Drops in Sea Breeze around the colored image and down the side of the card base.

12. Let dry.
I can imagine coloring this mushroom in lots of different ways, from realistic to fantasy. And these images are great for a wide variety of cards, including masculine. Please be sure to visit the Stampendous Blog to see what the rest of the team is working on this week. Thanks so much 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 "
