Went to Betty's Stamping and Scrapbooking Room for make 'n take day.. 7 projects for $15 can't be beat and there is always a ton of new stuff to ooh and ahh over and try not to buy. One of my favorite projects is in someone else's car (smart me, will post later) but these 4 were great, especially the chart we made for Tim and Dyan's divine new products. The card is done using a Faber Castell gelato resist: stamp the tree with Versamark, use white embossing powder, heat & dry... the rub swipes of 2-3 green gelatos on bottom of the tag, blend with big water brush (not too wet) and wipe off to clean your tree! Voila! The crazy lady tag is just another frustration reliever using Dylusions spray in water pen to color the "lady" in pieces,vthen spraying and misting and "glopping" the tag to blend colors. Used one of Dyan's stencils and her new white linen spray to instead of water resist for background (white dots)and some "between the lines" stamps to accident before gluing Ms. Colorful on.. The butterfly card was made in haste! Used 3 colors of Tim Holtz' new distress paints, 3 dabs on the craft mat, misted with water and then pulled the white paper through and through. Dried a bit with heater. Inked grass with green distress paint (don't press to hard), stamped over blue distress ink. Butterfly embossed, colored with distress markers, blended with water brush, cut out and glued on with glue dot.. sentiment embossed and voila..
