Woodware – On the Farm

On the Woodware blog this week we are on the farm

DD

So I am tramping about the Summer Weeds in some rather fetching Wellies.

DD1

First I stamped out Francoise’s Clear Magic Wellies on some cream card.

DD2

Then I used a mixture of 02 and 08 Micron pens to Zentangle©

DD3

I love to dangle my tangles and the boots are perfect for that.

DD4

I then stamped Jane’s Clear Magic Summer Weeds with a Spectrum Kaleidacolor ink pad. I inked the stamp and then stamped it several times until the ink run out to add depth to the stamping.

DD5

I used double sided tape to attach the wellies to the weed background and then stamped more of the weeds on top.

Thanks for visiting see you soon!

Woodware – Tone on Tone

This week on the Woodware blog we are looking at tone on tone.

DD4

I have used two Dreamweaver stencils the Large Scales and the Steampunk Clock.

DD1

I used the Large Scales and covered a sheet of 12 x 12 with it and the ColorBox Crafte’rs ink in Sweet Pea. Then I added some Translucent Dreamweaver paste to a 6 x 6 section of the card, and let it dry.

DD

When it was dry I added Dreamweaver Crackle Paste in a rather messy way. This took quite a while to dry.

DD3

I added the Sweet Pea Crafter’s to the Crackle Paste. Then ripped the edges to make the image fit the card, then edged it with more ink.

DD2

I cut a border from the stencilled card.

DD4

I added some self adhesive lace ribbon to finish off the card.

Woodware – Master Board – The Mirror Crack’d

Woodware are sponsoring The Mirror Crack’d this month so pop over to there blog for some inspiration and the join in on the Mirror Crack’d blog.

I am back again this week covering for Pam with another masterboard

b

this one is very plain, I have just used dye ink sprays and the Hexagonal Art Screen.

c

Then I messed about added some stamping with the quilting stamps, and some metal stencil used to pattern the Magic stamp.

o

Then I chopped it up into pieces to make some houses.

n

I added buttons and some self adhesive tape measure ribbon.

m

Here you can see the Crackle Rollagraph background stamp.

l

This one has some burlap ribbon.

k

this one has self adhesive lace.

i

the words come from the Stampendous Perfectly Clear set Family Home.

h

this time cream burlap.

g

and this one just has lots thrown on!

d

For the background I used a 6 x 24 inch canvas, ripped some paper as a mask

e

and sprayed with 2 shades of green

f

then used an ink pad for the blue sky.

j

I rubbed a Woodware wipe over the canvas to blend it in, then I painted over the top with metallic f/x made into a water colour paint with gum arabic, to as some shimmer to the sky.

a

It looks very nice on my wall!

Woodware – Master Board – The Mirror Crack’d

Woodware are sponsoring The Mirror Crack’d this month so pop over to there blog for some inspiration and the join in on the Mirror Crack’d blog.

Master board seems a very grand name for cutting up what you make, but it is fun.

17

This is what I have done with mine. The box is the largest one of a set of three wooden boxes that are available from Woodware.

For my master board I started with a sheet of white 12 x 12 card.

3

and sprayed it with Banana Clearsnap Dye Ink Spray through the Mandala Art Screen.

4

Just roughly

5

Then I added some Strawberry and Spearmint sprays I also used the Swirldot Art Screen.

7

Then I moved back inside and added some stamping in Bark Crafters ink. This is the Stampendous Carte Postal.

8

I have also stamped the Calligraphy Sampler in red ink

10

Then I got out the Dreamweaver Embossing paste and made a very messy job of pasting (deliberately I might add)

11

I repeated this across the card.

12

I should have started in the middle, but it didn’t matter as I am cutting up the board anyway!

13

Then I used the Rust Spoonful kit to heat emboss the paste. I just added it roughly.

14

Then I used the circles from the Kaffee Klatsch set. I have embossed it with the Seasoning Embossing enamel.

15

Then I chopped up the card I have edged them with Bark ink. I didn’t measure the length I just measured the height of  the box and cut 7cm sqaures.

15b

The box has been painted with the Dylusions paints that we are still waiting to arrive.

15a

The paints go on really well.

18

I have only decorated the two long sides.

16

I attached the panels with Woodware Crafty Glue.

The burning question is do I decorate the other two boxes with the rest of the master board

20

Or do I do something completely different?

Woodware Challenge Chosen by Siobhan – Book Marks

This week the Woodware theme has been chosen by Siobhan, I don’t think bookmarks will ever go out of fashion, while I never read fiction in a proper book I do have lots of craft books which have lots of pages that have to be marked.

DD

I have made my book marks all the same, but they are going to be a gift to my owl loving niece.

DD1

I have stamped on Craft Canvas with my favourite ink ColorBox Crafters the colour range has been increased which is very exciting! I have used the Anne Butler Quilting stamps on the Craft Canvas, I lined up the canvas on my cutting mat to get the stamps positioned properly.

DD3

Then I sponged colour over the top.

DD2

Then I used the Dreamweaver Small Open Owl stencil with a stencil brush and the Crafters inks.

DD4

The words are from the Stampendous Perfectly Clear Set Know Your Heart Words.

DD5

I layered the words on the Course Weave Natural  fabric.

DD6

To add a fancy edge to the bottom of the book marks I cut the edge on my Woodware Trimmer.

Thanks for visiting see you soon.

Woodware Colour Challenge – Black and Silver

I hope that you enjoyed our blog hop last week, back to normal this week, it seems very quiet. This week we have a colour combination of black and silver.

7

Stencils have been very popular this week with the girls and I have gone for Dreamweaver Stencils too.

3

I used the new Pen Collection stencil and embossed them with mat black paste then covered the wet paste with silver embossing powder and heated it.

4

I tried one with Aged Silver powder, but I decided it was not right for this project, but they are still in my stash.

1

For the background I used the Paisley Background stencil.

2

I used the Aged Silver powder to edge the panel.

6

Layered on to some silver vellum and then onto a 6 x 6 black card.

7

The pens were cut out and attached with double sided tape.

1

First I used the Dreamweaver Large Scales stencil and and a Colorbox Crafters Pad and inked through the stencil.

2

this is a really easy stencil to repeat across the canvas

4

I love that with theCrafters and a brush you can blend this ink, I have not tried to make it even, but you can not see the joins, then I cut the canvas in half

5

then I stamped

6

and stamped

7

and Frantaged

8

I love this randon effect.

11

on the other half I just stamped.

12

I added some red Woodware wire which I had twisted around the posts on the Plastic Jig. I also used some wadding under the canvas and stitched it.

13

I Frantaged the tops of some brads and added these

They are perfect in the circles of the stamp.
