Post 386: Craft Stamper Take It Make It Challenge (January, 2018)

Hi friends :)

Happy & excited to share that I'm on the Design Team of Craft Stamper Magazine's TIMI Challenge. Its a wonderful challenge with amazing prizes & lots of inspiration. Would be awesome if you try it out too, please do read the rules so your entries are eligible. It is an ANYTHING GOES STAMPING CHALLENGE! how cool is that, right?

I made a card for the Inspiration post. It features Visible Image Stamps and as luck would have it, Visible Image is sponsoring the prize for January! To check out my card and also the beautiful inspiration by the DT, PLEASE CLICK HERE

Synopsis of the Process: I die cut the panel using Canson Watercolor Paper & a Winnie & Walter die and then stamped the eye and sentiment in black. Then did watercoloring with zig markers and also, created some splatter for interest. In the end, foam mounted the panel onto the standard A2 sized black card base. 

List of Supplies:
Winnie & Walter Essentials: Lana Cutaways
Visible Image Stamps- Where Dreams Take You, Tomorrow Doesn't Exist
Versafine Onyx Black Mini Inkpad
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers
Aqua Brush
3d Foam Tape
Canson Watercolor Paper
Black Cardstock Cardbase

Post 385: Guest Designing for Craft Stamper Magazine (Mixed Media Art Journal Page)

Hi friends!

Happy to share that I'm Guest Designing over on the Craft Stamper Magazine's blog. I won the November TIMI challenge and this was one of the perks of the win :) yippee! I'm so grateful for the opportunity. 

I have created a Mixed Media Art Journal Page- "Art". I love the sentiment on it :) I have used several Viva Las Vegas Stamps here. I am preparing art journal pages separately and then will bind them together as a book later. 

Essentially, I applied white gesso to Kraft Cardstock and then did stamping.  For added texture and interest, added vintage washi tape by Tim Holtz and did mark making & created a hand drawn border with white acrylic paint. Also, did watercoloring with an aqua brush and zig markers. Then created some black and white ink splatter and added a black mat. This page measures 5.25 inches by 10.25 inches.
