Today I have a swap to share with you. After struggling with my mojo for a while I managed a few hours crafting this past Saturday and although it took a while to get into it I was pleased to have some swaps I had to make to force me to continue rather than just give up. And in the end I was happy with my makes.
So the first was a set of inchies with the theme “Eye eye”.
I chose to go for distress oxide backgrounds and then these fun make a monster stamps. I kept to the same set of eyes on each row but on a different monster body.
I highlighted the eyes with white and black paint pens. Then I gave each inchie a coat of clear embossing powder to give them some shine.
I love how these turned out. I stuck them to a card for the recipient.
Today I have a project I made a few weeks ago but forgot to share on my blog. Don’t know why but I was neglecting blogging. Possibly because it’s been so busy, possibly because my mojo was absent for a while and I got out of the habit!
Whatever the reason… I’m back today!
So these twinchies were for a swap and I loved creating them.
There were lots and lots of layers of distress oxides and smooshing and then stamping. Then embossing and embossing and embossing!
I used the lavinia stamps fairy and then alpha stamps for the sentiment on the top.
I finished off with some bling!
Really lovely ethereal background and you can never go wrong with a lavinia silhouette stamp!
Another swap to share… this time some inchies using the following colour palette…
The colour palette reminded me of a sunflower against blue skies.
Here is what I made…
I used blue ink to smoosh the watercolor the inchies in and then stamped using the dark brown archival ink and the Hardwood stamp.
I then added the spotty washi to three of the inchies and strips of the yellow washi to two of the inchies. Into the strips I added the words sun flower.
Then I inked the edge of each inchie and added an embellishment sunflower from the stash. I then arranged them onto the yellow cardstock.
Love this bright and beautiful selection of inchies.
Today I have another set of twinchies to share that I made for a Facebook group.
The theme was Under the Sea. I started with watercolour paper and added layers of distress oxide. Then I started stamping with the For the Love of Stamps set. I added the feature images with black soot oxide and then added some clear emboss on then to give them shine.
Then I finished off with a coat of normal distress ink to give it more depth.
Mounted them onto cardstock to send to the recipient.
Love the colour variation with the oxides in the background.
