ATSM #246: Anything Goes


Hello again and welcome to another challenge over at Addicted To Stamps and More. This week the theme is an easy one - Anything Goes. Absolutely no excuse not to play along!

I made a card for a friend's birthday using stamps from Altnew's Dahlia Blossoms sheet. The ink stains in Salty Ocean Distress Ink makes the blossoms pop. I heat embossed the greeting with WOW Gold Rich EP and finished the project with droplets of Mint Liquid Pearls.

Here is a closer look at the dahlias.

Chocolate Baroque: Bold Butterfly

Good morning, friends. I made a one-layer birthday card. Oh yes, I did! Trust me, I'm surprised myself but stranger things have happened!

I started by heat embossing the largest butterfly from the Patchwork Butterfly A4 sheet with WOW Gold Rich EP directly onto the card base.

Next, I worked on the background by blending Distress Inks in shades of green: Crushed OliveMowed LawnPeeled Paint and Pine Needles. Then I sprinkled some watered down Dina Wakley White Gesso to add interest to the background. I also added random blobs of Icicle Stickles for a touch of magic.

And finally, the greeting from Words To Dazzle and Sparkle stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.

I added colour to the gold embossed butterfly using Distress Inks: Barn DoorMustard SeedWild Honey and Squeezed Lemonade.
That's all from me today. Thank you so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon!

Chocolate Baroque: Let Your Dreams Take Flight

Hello, friends! Oh my goodness! Is it June already?! Yikes! Don't panic. Just focus on the positive - it's the start of a new month and lot's more crafting opportunities ahead.

So let's get this party going with a dreamy, pastel candy floss inspired Art Journal page. I made a conscious effort not to use strong vibrant colours and experiment with soft pastel and this is the result:

The butterflies, coloured with Copics, are from the Just Butterflies DL sheet. I cut them out and adhered to the page with Ranger Multi Medium. I added some white dots and slapped on Stardust Stickles. That lovely sentiment is from Butterfly Dreams A4 sheet, stamped with Archival Jet Black ink.

The little dragonfly silhouette is from the Butterfly Blush DL sheet, stamped with Archival Dandelion ink. To add some background interest, I stamped the leafy stalk from Briar Rose Butterfly A5 sheet, with Archival French Ultramarine ink. The script from Mini Scripts A6 sheet, stamped with Archival Magenta Hue ink.

The white swirly design is from the Patchwork Butterfly A4 sheet, stamped with Folk Art Acrylic Paint in Wicker White #901. I also splashed some watered down paint to the background. And yes... I added sequins. Don't ask why.

The background was fun to create. As always, I primed the page with Faber Castell Gesso and when completely slapped on Folk Art Acrylic Paint in Rose Pink #632, Baby Pink #633, Cameo Blush #4657,  French Vanilla #431 and Linen #420. I also did some stencilling with TCW Mini Daisy Cluster and Folk Art Acrylic Paint in Hot Pink #634. And to finish, droplets of Petal Pink Liquid Pearls.
Challenges:
Crafting By Design: June AG

So that's another Art Journal page done. It's been one year since I started this journey and I'm still learning and experimenting. And loving every minute. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a lovely day.

Beijinhos!
