STAMPlorations~ Fun with Distress Oxides Tutorial

Good afternoon everyone, Amy here, with a couple tags using ARTplorations Stencil and Distress Oxide Inks. 



I started by applying some Distress Oxide Inks onto a non-stick craft sheet and spritzing with water. Take your Watercolor panel sheet and smoosh thru/dab into the ink colors. Dry in between color layers.
  


Keep applying colors and layers until you are satisfied with the background.I then splattered the oxides onto my panel with fan brush. Let dry completely.
  


Use the Manila Tags second larges die to cut out two tags from your panel. Apply Black Soot Distress Oxide thru the Forest of Leaves Stencil.
  



Cut two pieces of 2x2 white cardstock and two pieces of black cardstock cut at 2.25'x2.25'. Stamp the floral image from the Lotus Love stamp set onto the white cardstock with Jet Black Archival Ink.
  



Stamp sentiments from Trendy Feathers 2 stamp set using Distress Oxides to bring in color from the background. Adhere your panels onto your tags and embellish with Washi Tape. 
  


Cut  2 more tags using the Largest of the Manila Tags
from black cardstock and adhere to your smaller tag. Add enamel dots matching the Distress Oxide colors from sentiment onto your image panel and finish the tag with ribbon, twine and button.

TAGplorations~ Coffee for all seasons

Morning crafty friends, I'm back for
The DT has made gorgeous tags for your inspiration, be sure to check them out here and leave them some luv!

This month it's all about FALL and the optional twist is: use Red, Gold and Orange in your tag!

Here's my tag featuring TAGplorations Manila Tags Die along with STAMPlorations Coffee For All Seasons Stamp set. 


I started by spritzing my Largest
Manila Tag with water and layering Twinkling H20's in Orange, Gold and Reds. I then stamped the AUTUMN Coffee image from the Coffee For All Seasons Stamp set onto water color using Memento Sepia Brown ink. Once dry, I colored the main focal images (pumpkin and coffee cup) with the same Twinkling H20's. I layered it onto gold shimmer paper and burlap and adhered to my card with some orange leaves peeking out. 

I finished by embossing the sentiment with Gold EP and adding twine and crochet ribbon from my stash.

There is still time for you to join us for this Month's fun challenge and I can't wait to see your FALL INSPIRED tags!

STAMPlorations~Sunday Stencil #103

Happy Sunday everyone! I'm sharing ATC's  I made for STAMPlorations Sunday Stencil #103. The designers have created some fabulous mixed media projects to inspire you. You can find them  here so be sure to check them out and leave them some luv! :o) 

Today I used ARTplorations Super Bubbles Stencil along with sentiments from Art Is STAMPlorations Stamp Set. 


I started with a sheet of Watercolor paper and used Distress Paints in Peeled Paint and Abandoned Coral to created my background color. I them used orange and green Posca Pens thru the Super Bubbles Stencil and outlined them with white and black gel pens. I cut my ATC's to 2.25x3.25 to allow for a border and stamped the sentiments using Jet Black Archival Ink. I outlined the main words using White Gel Pen so they popped! I then added some eye washi tape from Jane Davenport and adhered them to black cardstock cut to ATC size (2.5x3.5). Some Black Nuvo Drops finished them off.

Here's a closer look at them. 




I sure hope I've inspired you to get crafty today! Oh and don't forget if you use code "STAMPGIRLAMY" you can get 20% off your purchase! :o)
