Live your Dream with Passion

Hi there,

I would like to show you how to create this Mixed Media ATC for the Stamping-Fairies Blog:

  • cut an ATC from patterned paper
  • add Ecoline Liquid Watercolors and Alcohol Ink Mushroom
  • mist the panel with Alcohol for more texture
  • stamp the butterflies and some script from the Stampers Anonymous Papillon set with Archival Ink Black Soot
  • add some shine to the edges with a Distress Crayon Tarnished Brass
  • stamp some texture with the help of Prima Marketing Stamps and Archival Ink Watering Can
  • make some marks with a white paint marker
  • add a sentiment using stickers from the Tim Holtz Small Talk Sticker set and distress them with a black Stabilo All pencil and the Distress Crayon used on the edges of the ATC

I hope you got inspired.

Halli Hallo! - Hello!

Hi there,

Gerda Steiner has released the fabulous new Frogs stamp set with English, Spanish and German sentiments and over the next three weeks I will show you my creations with the Gerda Steiner Designs German Froesche set. This colorful lake scene is my third creation:

  • color one of the frogs and two flies from the Gerda Steiner Designs Frogs set with Alcohol Markers - add extra shading with Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils
  • add highlights to the eyes and some freckles to the cheeks with a white gel pen
  • add shimmer to the wings of the flies with Wink of Stella Clear Glitter
  • stamp some fish and some reed from the Gerda Steiner Designs Lucky Duck set into the background - use masking fluid to mask them
  • add color to the background with the Derwent Inktense Paint Pan Set and a watercolor brush
  • remove the masking and color those images with the Derwent Inktense Paint Pan Set as well
  • adhere  the sentiment strip with double-sided foam adhesive
  • before gluing the panel down onto the cardbase add a strip of green cardstock and of striped patterned paper to the left side

Have a colorful day.
