When can one stamp can give two different outcomes?

 

This morning I decided to use the same stamps sets to produce two really difference looks;

Visible image – Birthday versus and flower

Birthday Card:

On this can I used Brusho on Canvas paper and spray with water; I just love how the colours blend and bleed together.

Then I stamped with Memento Black ink, with the visible image stamp using the flower and the beautiful versus.

Then I stamp with verso mark ink  and  used silver embossing powder.

Pencil Case:

Using a plain fabric pencil case, I used some fabric paints and stamped with the large indigo blu butterfly, and gave the back a wash also with fabric paint.

Then with a selection of stencils from ‘stamps away’ & ‘Prima’ I used dye based inks to build up layers, followed by stamping with the flower from the visible image set.

To add detail to the tag I stamped on to ‘Shrink plastic’ with the visible image stamp and heated it, making sure that I punch out a good size whole to allow me to add it to the zip pull.

Skinzapfel Challenge#2

DSC_0019 DSC_0020 DSC_0022 DSC_0023 DSC_0024 DSC_0025

 

This is second try at mixing artist styles – so being inspired by rusty/industrial from Andy I used some shrink plastic, die cut out gears and embossed them. Then using the metallic lustre on the raised elements before heating and shrink them to use as findings on the necklace.

Then being inspired by Tracey’s use of colour and flowers I decorated the domino and canvas paper with flower stamps and coloured them. Finishing them of with Liquid Glass

Skinzapfel Challenge

Rainbow and Rust

Like a bad Joke, – What do you get when you mix two Artist? well when its Andy Skinner and Tracey Weinzapfel Stratton. The answer is “Dare to Create” challenge named “Skinzapfel”

DSC_0033 DSC_0026 DSC_0027 DSC_0029 DSC_0030 DSC_0031 DSC_0032

This is what I have dare to create, Using MDF Ring and Butterfly, i apply gesso to both, then to the butterfly added using texture paste media from decoart,

Once the butterfly was dry added wash over the top, then added the die cuts and flowers. Using mirco-powders add up a sprays in serval colours and tones, to give a rusty aged look

On the ring I apply a rainbow of colours, then crackle graze, once dry add chalk paint over the crackle medium.

New start new challenge,

Well, its Andy Skinner new blog challenge, bright and bold.  This is my try at being ‘bright and bold.’DSC_0665

I used DecoArt Media Texture Paste and Sand Texture Paste on the background.  Also used the Texture paste in the Children Stencil.  It then was original painted in DecoArt Fluid Acrylics.  Also used Mdf shapes, lace and plastic bottle flowers for extra texture. Then made up a spray of pink to bring a Bright and Bold constant. (sorry about the lighting)
