So I signed up to do a till roll swap. Rule was to make 3 foot long strips of artwork using the till roll. So here is what I made…
I did lots of stamping and used washi tape. I also added small bits of text print, raffle tickets, stamped sentiments and some correction tape and posca pens.
I added the main feature of the images which I actually received in a swap and some Paperartsy fresco finish paint. Then I used some foiling which I hadn’t used in ages so that we fun and pens for doodling.
Then I did a bit of hand sewing on each to add texture…. this you have to be gentle with or choose areas where there are other layers adhered to strengthen.
I also used my heat tool to make the thermal roll react which creates such a cool effect.
This was a piece of book print on which I added lots of distress oxides keeping to the lime and the blue. I really love twisted citron.
I used stamping and added water to blend the colours.
I then added the stamped floral image from Alpaca Pals. I used a Pitt pen in grey to add shading to the image which gave it some more emphasis. I then added the sentiment to the card blank and some gems for added bling.
This is also using the twisted citron distress oxide for the background. I added stencilling and stamping.
I then added the stamped fabric panel, a painted canvas tag and the embossed butterfly embellishment.
Love these two twisted oxide dominated cards.
And here are the daylight photos to show the colours properly…
I made this ATC using similar technique to the tag I shared yesterday… in fact the same stack of scraps was used.
I did however change it up quite a lot by coating the Whole ATC with the scraps and then blending distress ink over the top to change the colour.
Then I added one horizontal strip, along with some shimmery wallpaper scrap to give the bird something to sit on.
The bird is a new to me Alpaca Pals stamp which I embossed and then coloured using distress inks and water.
Really love how cute that bird is and can’t wait to use it again.
This ATC was a gift for someone I am doing a swap with called scrap my stash… we send each other a pile of our scraps and in return they send an ATC made using the scraps. Looking forward to seeing what they do with my scraps and what I get to play with in return.
A few days ago I shared a card for the Back to Basics and Beyond challenge blog where the challenge is to use a Spray.
Well once my hands were stained from one lot of Dylusions ink I might as well make another card!
This time I used the reds and pinks and yellows (it also had a little of the teal it picked up from a stencil!).
This time I used water to ghost the ink and create a subtle pattern in the background.
I then did some stamping using the Gummiapan text stamp, the Timeless Textures, the Be Crafty Banksy inspired stamp and some Alpaca Pals text stamps.
You can’t see it too well on the picture but I also sprayed the resist spray and added some embossing powder to it on one side through a stencil. It didn’t work out well but it adds some fun texture regardless.
I added lots of marks using black and white pens and I love this urban graphic themed card.
