Heart T-Light Holder




Stamp Used:

Morning, Mark here, I am sharing a little T-light candle holder, The heart started as plain grey cast cement.
The heart was given a coat of Gesso and then a coat of Decoart white acrylic paint, using the New fluid acrylics from Decoart the colours were added as a strong wash giving the almost tie die look.
The image was stamped with archival black ink 3 times to cover the top of the heart.Using the black modelling paste from the Decoart media line and a pallet knife I went round the edge of the heart smoothing out randomly. Some dry brushing with white picked out all the details and gave a faux stone finish.
The hole for the candle was painted black and also dry brushed.
Once all was dry the Heart was given a couple of coats of Satin Varnish, this really helped lift the colours and make them pop.
Thanks for stopping by, Mark xxx

Hello all ...
It's Suzanne here, finally sharing a 'summery' piece.

others
Dylusion sprays post box red DR-DYC33912

stencil with a floral pattern
duct tape
linen ribbon
sandwich paper
and some awning cloth I got from a local shop *hehe*
some flowers :-D




It started out as a small woodchip basket I dug up in the basement

I covered it with plaster cast so I'd have surface to apply some modeling paste onto.

Then some modeling paste was added through a stencil - and took a lifetime to dry :-D
When it had, finally, I sprayed the Dylusion inks on, let it dry again, applied some inka gold over the raised areas and covered it with triple thick gloss.

The inside was covered with awning cloth (I struggled with for quite some time ...) and then I adhered the linen ribbon on the outside and the inside around the edges. And I fastened two paper handles - a bit of recycling from a paper bag I got from one of my favorite shops :-)
The flowerpot is wrapped with sandwich paper, sprayed with Dylusion spray pure sunshine.


So, that's it. You've seen the result in the first pic.

Thank you ever so much for stopping by and having a look ... I really appreciate your visit so very much.
Please stop by again and have a look at the wonderful pieces the DT makes.

Have a great day, all of you,
hugs, Suzanne xx

Black cat book part 2

Well, as promised last week, here is the second half of the altered board book.
All of the images depict black cats.... doing all the things that magical
black cats do.

These little books are such fun to alter,also because of their small size a full book can be altered in just a few hours.

Altered clock.

Good morning,
 its the Dragon's turn to share a stamped project with you.
I saw a programme a few weeks ago about the 'Antikythera mechanism',
I loved the look of the corroded metal so i tried to replicate it on this altered clock.

I used clay, rolled out thinly and stamped into it.
Once the clay sheets were baked I adhered them to the clock.
I added flakes of dry clay and filler to the edges to give the appearance of the outer casing being corroded away.

Once everything was totally dry i painted the entire clock with black paint.
Then dry brushed with dark brown and mid brown paint.
I stamped the centre of the clock face with a watch mechanism stamp, 
for added interest.
To give it a real rusty corroded appearance i used ORIGINAL RUST,
rubbed all over it....twice.
Below you can see the rusty detail.... i think it looks pretty authentic.

Vakantiegroet uit Frankrijk

De vakantie is alweer voorbij, maar er was niet eerder een "gaatje" op het blog.
Natuurlijk heb ik een heleboel stempelspullen meegenomen, en daarmee onder andere deze vakantiekaart gemaakt, met de nieuwe Plate 173 Postcard. De lavendel op de voorkant komt helaas niet goed over...
The vacation is already over, but there wasn't "room" on the blog sooner.
Of course I have taken a lot of stampingmaterials with me, and, amongst others, I have made this vacation greetingcard with the new  Plate 173 Postcard. The lavender on the front is not showing very well....


voorkant


achterkant

Gebruikte stempels:

Door de wijnfles met twee kleuren groen af te drukken lijkt het net of hij halfvol zit. Bij toeval ontdekt, toen ik probeerde welke kleur het mooist stond. 
TIP: Als je niet in de gelegenheid bent om stempels mee te nemen op vakantie dan kun je je kaarten natuurlijk ook thuis alvast stempelen, en ter plekke posten....
By colouring the wine bottle with two shades of green it looks like it is half full. I discovered this by accident, while trying which colour would look best.
TIP: if you are not able to take your stamps with you on vacation, you could stamp your cards at home, and post them on the spot.

Super-tag




Een tag gesneden van 14 x 21,5 cm. Gekleurd met distress inkt. Met een stencil en een babydoekje de stenen gemaakt aan de rechterkant van de tag. Daarna de script en de veer gestempeld met Stazon sadle brown. De vlinder met Stazon timberbrown. Ook twee keer op ander papier en ingekleurd met de zelfde sponsjes als de achtergrond, uitgeknipt en twee x geëmbost met clear embossing poeder en versa mark.
De tekst ook op apart papier gestempeld en gesponst en uitgeknipt. Alle randjes zijn gesponst met distress walnut stain. De vlinders zijn verhoogd opgeplakt een beetje naast de afdruk om schaduw te maken. Twee gaatjes geponst en de veren eraan gemaakt.

I cut a tag from Manila paper, size 14 x 21,5 cm. Colored it with distress ink. Made de bricks with a stencil and a baby-wipe. Stamped the script and the feather with stazon sadle brown. The butterflies 2 x on the tag with stazon timberbrown and 2 x on scrappaper. Colored with the same spunges as the tag, cut out and embossed them 2 x with versa mark and clear embossing powder. The sentiment is done the same way. Al the edges are spunged with distress walnut stain. The butterflies are glue 3D on the tag, a little next to the stamped butterflies on the tag, to make some shadow. Made two holes to put the feathers in.

Zomaar een tag

Nu eens geen tag met technieken of tips maar gewoon een tag omdat ze leuk zijn om te maken. Kun je ontdekken hoe het gemaakt is?

Not a technique tag but a tag just because they're fun. Can you figure out how this one was made?

CP R547 - Music Woman
CP R504 - Klimt swirls
CP J282 - Klimt square


Het lintje door de tag heb ik van Tyvek gemaakt. Gewoon een strookje knippen, dat naar eigen idee kleuren, door de tag knopen en verhitten met de heat gun.

I made the ribbon from Tyvek. Just cut off a strip, paint it the way you like, tie through the tag and heat with the heat gun to make it curl.

mini lantern

Hi and good morning ...

It's Suzanne here again and this time I'll share a mini lantern.

supplies used
stamps
from plate 89 microscopic artforms 1 PLATESW89

others
StazOn inkpad jet black
tracing paper
watercolorpencils




At first I cut out all the single pieces from black cardstock resp tracing paper. The lantern is about 9 cm high and 7 cm wide. Then the paper panels were stamped with stazon, let dry thoroughly because the ink tends to smear on this kind of paper very easily. They were colored with watercolor pencils. After I glued everything together a linen ribbon was wrapped around the bottom and a red one along the top of the lantern.

Thanks so very much for stopping by today.
I'd love to welcome you here any other day too.

Have a great Sunday
hugs, Suzanne xx

"Vakantiewerk"

Pauwenveer en alcoholinkt







Gebruikte stempels:
EI PP80 Texturize  (voor de achtergrond)

Overige materialen:



Op Pixie Plate 80 staan een aantal leuke achtergrondstrukturen, en deze vond ik heel goed bij de pauwenveer passen. 

Bovenste kaart:
Voor de achtergrond blauwe alcoholinkt op een viltje gedruppeld, wat blending solution erbij, en in het midden een paar druppels geel. Dit twee keer gebruikt om de stempel te inkten, zo ontstond een mooi (pauwen)patroon. Stempel afgedrukt midden op glanskarton.
Toen de afdruk droog was de pauwenveer met Distress paint over het vierkant gestempeld.

Onderste kaart:
Het achtergrondstempel op dezelfde manier beïnkt (vier keer opnieuw), en vier keer afgestempeld, zodanig dat de afdrukken aansluiten.
De pauwenveer met Versamark midden op het vierkant gestempeld, en daarna met Black sparkle geëmbost.



On Pixie Plate 80 you will find a number of nice backgroundtextures, and this one was fitting very well with the peacock feather. 

Top card:
For the background I have put some drops of alcoholink on a felt, some blending solution as well, and in the middle some drops of yellow. I have used this twice to ink the stamp, thus creating a nice (peacock)pattern.
I stamped the image in the middle of a card.
When the ink was dry I stamped the peacock feather across the square with Distress paint.

Bottom card:
I inked the backgroundstamp the same way (four times), and stamped it four times, so that the sides were connecting. 
I stamped the peacock feather in the middle with Versamark, and embossed it with Black sparkle.

Vintage ATC step by step




Stamp Used:
The Face is from Burning Hearts Plate 56

Morning all, Mark here and I am sharing a quick step by step of how to make a simple Vintage ATC.
My ATC blanks are cut from chip board from Tando-Creative and the paints and mediums are from the new Decoart Media line.They were first painted white and stamped with the image using archival black ink.
Once completely dry I added a was of Transparent Yellow Oxide. With the new media fluid acrylics you need very little paint as they are pure pigment, a little goes a long way.


Using a brush for adding colour washes (it looks like a big pom pom) I dubked the brush into clean water and picked up a little colour and applied it to the ATC.


before the wash.



After the wash, there is a slight aged look to the white.
Once dry I sealed the ATC with matt medium and applied Decoarts crackle glaze.
Once the Crackle glaze had dried I used the new Antiquing creams, a couple of drops smeared accross the surface with a finger is enough. The antiquing cream dries quicklyonce dry using some clean water and a soft cloth just wipe away the excess cream leaving it sitting in just the cracks. The cream is water reactive so you can do the wiping back at any point once dry.



I added a couple of the Tim Holtz chit chat words.
Capture was done using just black antiquing cream while Memory was done with a coat of white first befro re doing with black, it has given a more subtle look to the cracks.


As always, thanks for stopping by. Head back to morrow for somthing new from our DT. xxx
