Bigfoot Sighting...

Hello Crafty friends

Bigfoot, also known as the "Ohio grass man" in my neck of the woods (along with many other names), has always been a creature of lore, but you will see him for sure on the card below. 

Clearly someone has been gathering evidence?!

Stamps Used: 

Start by stamping out bigfoot and distress

Same for your "evidence label"

Next you can see a scarp from my junk box I pulled out, it has vintage photo distress spray ink on it and texture paste.

I combined all these peces plus a tag with some rub-on's (Tim Holtz "remnant rubs") to create the card below. Super Easy! Embellish with more remnant rubs, faux stitching pen marks, staples and metal clips. 

I hope you all enjoy this!
This is actually a gag card for my father-in law. 

What do you Believe?

Easy Easter Mail Art

Hello Again!

I'm back with more cute
Easter Mail Art!

Stamps Used:

Ok, so this time I totally forgot to take some action shots. 

Start by stamping your group of bunnies, then mask them off.  Next, stamp your cross with lilies. 

You can see here I have done that then began to color my cross and flowers. 
(you can remove the mask to color, but i chose not to for some reason)

Now remove the bunny mask so that you can color them too! 
(I chose browns , because i think of "chocolate bunnies")

So, after everything was colored I re-masked my bunnies then added a layer of yellow ink over the background.  When I was satisfied with that, I used layering stencils with pink and yellow to add more details.
