Living on the Fringe...

Hello Again! 

Today I'm going to share some super fun inspiration for the
Viva Las VegaStamps Monthly Challenge

Top secret 
Fringe Scientist
Circulatory system
Coffee ring stain
Double coffee ring

Other products used:
Archival ink- jet black
Distress ink-gathered twigs, ground espresso
Versafine ink- vintage sepia
Tim Holtz-index clips and mini paper clips
Tim Holtz- remnant runs
Mica Tiles
A2 sized file card

Starting with my file card base, I stamped my main image "circulatory system" in versafine ink.

I used some ink smushing to distress my card with distress ink. I also edged the card using a blending tool.

On a separate piece of cardstock I stamped the top secret,  and fringe scientist. I used distress ink to grunge them up.

To add extra depth,  I stamped my evidence stamp lightly  as well as my 2 coffee ring stamps (See stamp list above).

Lastly, I added used various remnant runs, clips, and my sheet of mica to finish the card off.

Thank you for visiting!
Hope you are all warm and safe.

Happy Hump Day

Hello Crafty Friends!
I hope you are all having a wonderful day!

Today I want to share a little inspiration for the new challenge over at 
Stampotique Originals Designers Challenge- The challenge is "clean and simple"
 which is something I need a lot more practice with. 

Stamps Used:

Using an A2 card base (minus a 1/8 in boarder) I stamped my unicorn in the center with Memento ink in black. (This ink plays nice with alcohol based markers). 

I used various shades of Blick alcohol markers to color and add shading. I used Zig clean color markers to add a few details as well. Of course, you know unicorns need glitter so I finished off my coloring with a Wink of Stella clear glitter layer over any areas with color. 

To finish off the card, I added a Tim Holtz quote sticker that seemed fitting. 

Have a wonderful day and stay crafty!

Queen of Hearts Mail Art Monday!

Hello Crafty Friends!!

Hope you are having a fabulous
Mail Art Monday!

Stamps Used:
(all 3 main stamps are on this plate <3 )

Today I want to share a little Valentines themed happy mail using Viva Las VegaStamps!

I just love this sassy queen! I started by stamping my beautiful queen and quote in memento ink on my A2 card base and envelope.  I used blick alcohol inks to color my queen. I masked off the queen then used Distress inks in Picked raspberry, worn lipstick, and festive berries.  I used Tim Holtz layering stencils to add extra details in the background. 

On the envelope I stamped my hearts in distress ink, festive berries. Using the same color, I stamped the french writing on the card background. 

To finish everything off, I flicked some perfect pearls mist in heirloom gold. 

I hope you are all inspired to create some fun mail art and Valentines love. <3
