Life Q's #2

I'm participating in bcdoule 52 weeks of Life Q's challenge. I have put my journal together with my old Christmas cards. I am very new to mixed media but this is a great way to give it a try. This layout is week #2: Are you afraid  of the dark?

Do you see my answer in the layout? Hint: Check the skeleton hat. I created the a background by using wax paper and Luminar in pearlescent paint. I used a old Halloween skeleton and painted it with the Lumiar for the ghost outline. I then drew the skeleton frame in with a black Sharpie. I sponged purple and black ink over the background. The flourish die cut was added to the left edge of the layout. The finishing  touches were a 3-d skeleton head and clear sequins.

Challenges I participated in: Outlawz Challenges - Anything Goes (Thursday), Hiding In My Craftroom- Freestyle (Saturday).

Let It Snow

Over at Verve Stamp blog this month's the December's challenge theme is "Oh Christmas Tree."  My card reminds me about Christmas snow and the fun of going sledding. I also participated in the Cat's Pajamas challenge. This color challenge required us to use red, kraft and black on our projects. I truly liked how this color layout worked. Adding the clear and silver sequins gave life to this card sketch. Next I added snowflakes to give the impression of snow.


Challenges: 1) Verve Stamps - O' Christmas Tree (Dec) 2) The cats Pajamas - color challenge (Dec 12) 3) Totally Tilda - Snowflakes (Dec19) 4) Outlawz Challenges - Christmas Magic

Happy Holidays

I started this card from a store purchased card base. You can save money by picking up craft items at the end of the season. The main cardinal was embossed with silver and punched out using a 2 1/2" circle punch. I also wanted to carry the silver theme over onto the pattern paper by embossing the baroque stamp.

Wonderful Birthday

I created two cards with the same stamps. The first card is a one layer clean and simple card. The other card was layered onto white cardstock with added bling. Which one is your favorite?

This card above is a clean and simple layout ceated with the embossed resist technique. I sponged certainly celery and not quite navy inks. I added clear and white sequins. 

 This is the wow card. I used the same process as above but I added clear rhinstones and layered the inked piece on white cardstock.
