Monoprinting



Hello Friends
I wanted to take part in this months Craft Stamper challenge. The challenge is to monoprint with an acrylic block. That sounded like fun. I am always up for trying new things :)  I don't own that many paints so I used what I had on hand. They happen to be black and a metallic light blue. I squeezed the paint randomly on the block then put it on my paper. Oh how it makes such a lovely mess :)  This background is what I was left with after I removed the acrylic block. The black was a little too dramatic for me, so I wanted to soften it a little. While the paint was still wet I sprinkled white fine glitter all over.  It dried in with a frosty look from the glitter which I really liked. I stamped and heat embossed the girl with white embossing powder, then painted her with my distress inks. I stamped the sentiment with distress ink then cut out the words and pasted them along side the girl. Finally I added some paper flowers that were coloured with the same distress inks.

Craft Stamper May Challenge

Hello Friends! I hope everyone is doing ok during this crazy time.  I just wanted to remind you that we are still running the Craft Stamper Challenges.  The May challenge is well underway but you still have time to come and join in.  Here is my card I made for this month's project.  I made this clean and simple floral card with Unity stamps.  I used two different kits to create this card. The jar with the flowers is from the  Strength & Wisdom  stamp set and the sentiment is from the kit called  His Words .  I kept my card really clean and just used my watercolors to colour the flowers and jar then tied a little twine around it to finish it off. If you have the time come and play along with us this month.  You can use any stamps you wish on your project.  Here is the prize we have on offer this month this fab Eileen Hull die.  All of the details of the challenge can be found on the  Craft Stamper Blog . Hope to see your project

Unity & Misti Blog Hop

Hello My lovelies :) Welcome to the Unity and Misti blog hop! I  hope you are enjoying seeing all of the projects so far. I just had my first wee play with the Misti tool the other day. It is a very new to me tool and wow do I LOVE it!! It is awesome! Just for the simplest of things like positioning a stamp.  One time is all you need with the Misti!! I am not one of those crafters that gets my stamped images crisp first time. I usually have wasted a card or two before I end up with a perfect image. This tool totally eliminates all of that.  Here is my very first card that I made with the Misti tool and Unity stamps.  I used a stamp called  Scattered Pieces . I LOVE this stamp and the sentiments that come with it.  I positioned the feather and the sentiment at the same time on the Misti.  I totally love that you can do that too!  It lets you stamp several at once instead of just eye balling it and hoping it works out!
