Spread Your Wings Tag

Happy Friday Crafty Friends! Today I have a lil' Tag
I made using my new Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor set.
 My fabulous bestie, Sharon, sent them to me so I had a play and I LOVE THEM!!! 
Thank you SHARON!! xx

Ok here is my little scene I created by watercoloring the background. Not bad for my first go, I'll have to keep playing with them to get the hang of them, but really like how well they blend and keep their color. :o)
I then stamped some fairies that Sharon also got me in Black Archival Ink...isn't she AMAZING???? Be sure to check out her blog and leave her some luv!! I also stamped some Impression Obsession  and Penny Black Flowers to create some foilage in the background using StazOn Midi's in Gothic Purple Blue Hawaii and Cloudy Sky. I then colored the fairy wings with Spectrum Noir  Sparkle Pens in Aquamarine and Cosmos. Love these too!! I inked around the edge with Black Soot Distress Ink and added some black and white paint splatters . I then stamped the sentiment from the Prima Finnabair "Don't Forget to Fly" set and finished with Hug Snug Black Seam Binding

Thanks for stoppin' by today and I hope to see you again soon. :o)

Monster High Journal Page

Hi crafty friends, I have a lil' journal page to share with you today
 using Monster High Trading Cards.

 I saw these at a swap and picked them up for 50 cents last summer but am just now playing around with them. lol. 

I started by layering Dylusions Paints in Bubble Gum Pink, Cut Grass and Lemon Zest onto 2 pages of my Small Dylusions Journal. I then used black and white acrylic paints thru the Dylusions "LETTER JUMBLE" and "STAGGERED BRICKWORK" stencils.
I wanted a "Graffiti" background. :o)
I added some circles using a lid and white acrylic paint and then using Black and White Gelatos to color them in. I doodled on them as well with my White Uni Posca Pen. I also added some stamped bubbles with Black Archival Ink in the background, which I doodled on again with my White Uni Posca Pen and Black Fine Pitt Pen.  I fussy cut the images of the Monster High Girls from the trading cards and adhered to the base and grounded them with Recollections Washi Tapes. I finished with the sentiment (D-137) from  Digital Princess Designs and some white and black paint splatters. :o)

Here's a closer look at the images:

Thanks for stoppin' by, and I hope I've inspired you to get crafty today. :o)
