Hippo Racing

Hello Again Crafty Friends!

Tera here again, and today I'm going back to my vintage and grungy roots!

(Also Hippo Racing, Why not!?!)

Stamps Used: 

Start with an A2 card base.
 Cut black kraft stock to- 5 3/8in x 4 1/8 inches, a piece in 2in x 4 1/8 in, and  3 7/8in x 2 5/8in. 
The scrapbook paper layers measure- 5 1/8in x 3 7/8in, and 4 1/8 x 1 3/4in
The stamped image layer is 2.5 in x 3.5 in. 

I distressed Everything with frayed burlap and antique linen distress ink. 

When my stamped image was colored (using Zig clean color markers), I stitched around the edges. (I meant to stitch the top and bottom of the skinny piece but glued it down too soon, so I hand drew faux stitching on it. )

Finally when everything was glued down, I stamped my quote using my stamping tool. 
(Tim Holtz stamp press)

 To finish everything off, I used various rub-ons from Tim Holtz and 7 gypsies for added details. 

What do you think? 

Do you want to try hippo racing?

Today is a super fun one for me. I am a HUGE Supernatural fan!

Before you ask I can not pick between Sam and Dean, they are both yummy in their own way! But Sam's car..... OK so probably Sam if he comes with the car.

This one is gong to live with one of may patients, She is also a huge Supernatural fan, so I am going to surprise her at her next visit.

Want to recreate it?
Start with an A2 card Base, and some scrapbook paper.
 This piece is from a park lane paper pad ( Maps, Text & Ledgers)
I distressed the edges using hickory smoke and antique linen Distress ink and oxides. 
Then, I stitched around the outer boarder for added texture. 

Next, I created 3 tags for layering. I used inks in : Tuxedo Black Archival, Shadow Grey Archival, and Watering can Archival. 

I again distressed each piece with antique linen ans hickory smoke distress ink. 

Here you can see them all layered and glued. 

Ten for the final piece I glued the tags and Demon Hunter strip down using distress collage medium. 
For the car, I used pop dots to give added depth and interest. 

I hope you enjoy this too!

So, who wold you choose?

Pure Heart

Hello Crafty Friends! 

Today I want to share something fun that I was inspired to make for the
Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge. 

The theme is "Love is all around us"
You can join or read more HERE

I wanted to create something non-traditional and vintage. 
I knew right away that I wanted to used this heart ad by Tim Holtz.
(It's from the stamps set- ECLECTIC ADVERTS - CMS372)

I stamped it in black memento ink, and colored it with a red alcohol ink marker.

I distressed the focal image with distress ink in gathered twigs, and ground espresso. 

Here you can see the mica glued on the main image using distress collage medium. I also punched the 4 corners and added Tim Holtz hex fasteners.

For the base layer I used Tim Holtz correspondence paper pad. Which I also distressed using the same 2 distress inks. I also added some cord I had on hand. 

I also used layers of Tim Holtz kraft-stock for the bases.

Here it is all finished!
I hope you all enjoy it!
