Woodware – Make Christmas Special with Metallic F/x – Take 2

Here is my second attempt at making Christmas special with Dreamweaver’s Metallic F/x

21

I have used Jane’s Snowflake Flower Clear Magic stamp, I think that it is one of my favourites this year.

16

first I stamped it with my watermark pad and then I added two colours of Metallic F/x Navajo Sky and Golf Finch

15

Then I brushed off the excess with the soft blending brush and used the corner rounder to finish off the layer.

12

something that I have not done for a very long time is to use my Watermark pad just to stamp with, I remember being very excited by being able to do this many years ago when the pads first came on the market. How brilliant is it that you can stamp with one ink pad to make a background without having to find an ink pad that will match? Oh simple things!

19

I added some plain 15mm organza ribbon and attached the panel to the card.

20

Then I tied on some dotty organza

17

The greeting is from the same stamp set and I have edged the panels with the gold finch Metalic F/x. Just run your card along a Watermark pad and brush the powder on.

Make Christmas Special with Metallic F/x

This week on Woodware Witterings we are using Dreamweaver Metallic F/x this is a very high quality Mica powder in a stunning range of colours. The pot contains nothing but high quality mica pigment, no fillers!

So here is what I have come up with.

11

the photograph is not very good, sorry.

3

first I have used Dreamweaver copper embossing paste and while it is wet I have flicked on the powder. The stencil is one of the new ones from Stampendous Holly Scroll Stencil.

2

When I had enough powder on I heated the paste to dry it.

4

once it is dry you can brush off the excess powder.

7

I just love the bubbly effect!

8

For the background I used the watermark pad through the Large Damask stencil. I have added the Metallic F/x

1

I ran the Happy Christmas Stencil through my Sizzix machine and then inked it with the Watermark Pad and

5

added the Purple Satin and Glacier Metallic F/x I have used the same two colours throughout.

6

I added the blue around the layer of card. simply run the card along the ink pad.

9

it looks good on the card, but has not shown up on the final photograph.

10

I wrapped the ribbon around th card, then added a knot of ribbon to finish off the panel.

Woodware – Pop of Colour… Take 2

You may have noticed I love houses and house stamps, I really can’t get enough of them.

h

this stamp comes from a set designed by Nathalie Kalbach of N*Studio, in the box you will find a cling rubber stamp, a foam stamp, and a stencil/mask. the foam stamp is great for using with paint and it is eally 2 stamps in one, the plain back can be used as a solid stamp to put colour behind the image. The possibilities are endless for cards, scrapbooks and mixed media work.

d

My card is a 12 x 12 sheet folded in half, I love his size of card, but envelopes are not easy!

Here I have stamped the Urban Scribble twice, I don’t think that you can see the join. I have used the ColorBox Licorice Dye Ink Pad.

g

I made two masks for the images, and stamped them with the Dylusions number stamp from the Basic Backgrounds cling rubber set.

f

Here you can see the mask on half of the image. (sometimes I get so interested in what I am doing that I forget to take photographs)

e

The words are also from the Dylusions range, this one comes from Laugh ’til You Leak. These words are perfect for art journals and scrapbook pages! But or a card to send I felt it had to be changed, and I know that I have done this before.

b

I then stamped it twice on black card, I stamped in white and embossed with clear powder.

c

My pop of colour was done with Dylusions paint and I have deliberately made it rather scribbly.

I love my card, but it was a surprise to see that Nat has used the stamps in an art journal page on her blog yesterday so pop over and see what the artist has created in her post My Art Journal Today, but don’t judge me to harshly!

Woodware – Pop of Colour…

This week on Woodware Witterings we are looking at Pops of colour, I have used more that one colour, but only coloured a very small part of the image

8

I have used the lovely Flowering Bike Clear Magic stamp designed by Francoise, it is a very pretty image

1

first I stamped it twice, I have used Bark Crafters ink and stamped on the woodware Mixed Media card

2

Then I punched the flowers out with the blue Super circle punch this was the best size.

3

I coloured with Sakura Koi brush pens. Then I highlighted the basket with the Sakura Clear Star gellly roll pen. This pen is a must have for adding some fast sparkle.

4

I have used my edge scruffer on the panel, and then mounted it on some ribbed kraft card.

5

Then I added some brown gingham ribbon, I love the Woodware gingham ribbons.

6

Then I added some of the self adhesive lace in cream.

7

popped the hearts from the same stamp set down the side and then layered up my pops of colour.

I hope that you like my card, I do, it is so nice to make a card that you like the look of, it never gets old!

The Time of Mellow Fruitfulness – take 2

Me again with another mellow post, but today I have a scrapbook page to share.

h

I have used a stencil, stamps and chippies. The photographs were taken on a September morning dog walk.

a

First I used the Dutch Doobadoo Mask Art Bricks I used a stencil brush and the Bark Crafters ink pad

j

on top of that I stamped, with the same ink pad one of the stamps from the Dylusions Graphic Backgrounds Cling rubber set. It is great the difference in the ink intensity that you can get.

c

Then I used Stampendous Rust Spoonful Kit this mixture of embossing powder, mica and color fragmaent comes in a bag and box all ready to use.

d

Just sprinkle where you want it, and heat from underneath.

e

I have used the Woodware Chippies for my title. I love these chipboards, the alphabets come in 2 styles and with 2 sheets in the bag. I have used Aged Bronze embossing powder, and the Jungle Crafters ink.

f

Then I stamped and again embossed with the Aged Bronze powder, this stamp is from the NK Studio range and is called Kaffee Klatsch I have then punched them with the circle punch.

i

For my journaling I used a blue circle punch to make a mask and the used the sampe stamp

k

my mask is part of the finished piece too.

g

Here is a close up of one of the photographs so that you can see where I find the beauty on a September morning. The layers under the photographs are just Hairy Manila cut to the same size as the photographs and scruffed on 2 edges.

The Time of Mellow Fruitfulness

On Woodware Witterings this week we have a theme of Mellow Fruitfulness. At this time of year the birds all seem to be busy, which is what I was thinking about when I started off on this project, so I got out the birds…

12

I have finished up with an A4 journal page. I couldn’t find my journal so I have used the Woodware Mixed Media card which I will attach to my journal.

1

I have used my Dylusions paint, in Tangerine Dream and Postbox Red. I used the ColorBox Blending tool and then wiped it over with a Woodware Wipe to blend it all really well.

2

Then I stenciled on the blended page

4

I just started off with the same colours as the page, so that it is tone on tone.

6

Then I added some green, I just left the stencil messy so that the green mixed with the red ink and it gave me a darker green than the paint that I had Cut Grass. Dylusions have new soft greens that are really lovely, but I don’t have them yet!

13

I have used the Mixed Media Artist Nathalie Kalbach’s  3 Piece Bird Set. The stencil is part of the set. I have inked the stamp with Pomegranate Seed Dylusions Paint.

14

The White Linen bird is the foam stamp from the set.

9

I have used Jane’s Dorothy Clear Magic Stamp for the sun with Lemon Zest paint, and used my white Sakura Gelly Roll to out line the birds. I then decided that I didn’t like it!

15

So I stamped another bird this time in the Tangerine paint.

8

The words are stamped in white linen paint they come from two of the Dylusions stamp sets Laugh ’til You Leak and Don’t Hold Back.

12

I rather like my autumnal page, I hope that you like it too.

Woodware – Sketch 54 – take two

Back again with another take on this weeks Woodware Witterings Sketch

a

This one I have turned on its side

54

and changed it a little bit.

c

Meet Sausage Dog

e

I used my Sakura Koi Brush Pens and coloured each stripe a different colour, I think it looks rather snazzy.

d

I inked the edges of a panel for Sausage to go on

h

Then I decided that it did not have enough contrast, so I got out my stencil brush again and did a sort of strie technique this worked as the card is textured. I have done faux stitching around the panel and the card.

g

Sausage fits on the panel perfectly, the card is A4 Linen Card folded in half.

b

I used some Fancy Twine around some card for the small section

f

The words come from the same stamp set

dorrie

I have layered them on one of the Fitted Frames dies from Stampendous.
