This week at Stamp N Doodle the design team is cooking up something special!
Featuring Christmas Recipes.
Sticking with my canvas ideas-I've included a Recipe For a Happy Home. My SND image was colored with Derwent Pencils. I made the lace flower by hot gluing lace in a circle and adding a metal center piece from Bo Bunny and a La Petite flower in the middle.
The background was painted, dabbed with paper towels, applied crackle paint, dabbed brown and copper over top. I lov making things look weathered! My new "thing".
I hope you'll hop on over to Stamp N Doodle and join in the fun. There's always a prize!!
I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it!
Does that happen to you?
I used some new products from Deco Arts.
Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister.
See the tutorial at the end of the post.
Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes??
Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.
I love making gelli prints. I've used a variety of types of paints. The best I've found is DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paints. The consistency of the paint is perfect for spreading on the gelli plate.
On all the background gelli prints I used DecoArt Jacobean Floral
stencil and the following Americana paint: Autumn Red, Antique Rose,
Cadmium Yellow, and Moon Yellow. I changed which order I was putting
them on the plate.
This first one I embellished with Unity Stamps I'm so Happy and
Ribbon by Really Reasonable Ribbon.
New Dawn Rooster by Unity Stamps and Wild Orchid Flowers.
This last card-you can really tell how using numerous gelli prints together is like having matching designer paper!! Except you created it yourself!
The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, flowers from Wild Orchid and Flourishes.
I hope you're inspired to design your own cards. Everyone loves getting a handmade card!
