Cutie Pie

This week at Come and Get It Challenges we have a new challenge for Cute Cards, what a simple and fun theme, come join us won't you. Anyway for my card I have used an image from Crafty Sentiment Designs called Little Friends. I have used copics to color it in, and made it into a simple center step card, adding butterflies to the sides, and a flower with a sweet sentiment to the bottom
Thanks for looking, and have a wonderful day.

Mixed Media Collage

Here is a small mixed media collage I have done. 

It started off as a canvas board from the dollar store, I had done a background with moulding paste, but didn't like it, so took the canvas off, and decided to use the board, as it had some texture to it. It is 6 in. By 8 in

Next step was to cover it in Black gesso, I then cut some old pieces of patterned paper and pu them on. I stenciled a background over that, then added another layer of black gesso, let it all dry. 

Then I started looking for pieces for the collage. There are a number of elements:
Felt flowers, buttons, metal gear, metal flourish, metal grommet, metal bottle cap, paper flower, with corduroy brad, then a wooden guitar, cat,bird, flower, star, and heart rounded it all out. The butterfly is a die cut cut out of wood paper

I the. Glued them all on with gel medium and let dry over night, then I painted it all black once again.

After that was dry, I used a dry brush technique and painted some of it white, with cheap acrylic paint.
Before spraying with the inks I attached the butterfly, as I had left it off in order to get the black on the underneath, as well as on the pieces that would be under the butterfly
Then to finish it off I sprayed it with spray inks I made using re inkers and alcohol to the whole thing, 
Colors of these were Marina Mist, Melon Mambo, and Garden Green. Oh also a bit of the gold glitz shimmer spray I had from Stampin up as well.

Tag it

Hi Everyone, well I have a simple tag for you today, we at Holly Jolly are featuring tags this fortnight so come along for your chance to win some prizes from our sponsors, Stitchy Bear Outlet, Crafty Sentiments, and QKR Stampede.

For something a little different I colored the image with inktense pencils, then cut it out into the tag, and added some glitter and sentiment from Stampin Up Jolly Old St. Nick Stamp Set.
