ATSM Challenge 78

Hi Everybody,

Thanks so much for your lovely comments. They were all very much appreciated. The cold still hasn’t completely gone, but my thinking has become somewhat clearer.

It is Wednesday again and time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More …  Challenge #7 – Holiday!!!

Wonder what type of celebration you will have gone for, the full details of the challenges and their rules can be found here.

Again this week we are welcoming Gemma from Gem’s Little Creations as our guest designer.

Our sponsor this week is Deedee’s Digis.

The winner will receive 3 digi sets of their choice.

When I hear the word ‘Holiday’, I immediately think of summer, sun and swimming …

hence I decided to use this image of a ‘bathing beauty’ in an old fashioned swim suit for the retro summer holiday feel …

Here she is, my DT piece for this week:

Birthday Splash Red

I simply stamped her in black memento ink and coloured her using Promarkers. For the splashes, I added some highlights using glitter glue. I rounded some corners and layered my elements as shown in the picture adding some red striped ribbon and twine bow.

This birthday card is for a friend of mine who loves red … plus her birthday is on Valentine’s Day … thought it might be fitting …

Hope you like it!

Hope that you feel inspired to enter this week’s ‘Make your Mark’ challenge at ATSM, please pop over and see all the other creations of the fabulous ATSM DT Team.

ATSM Challenge 77

Hi Everybody,

Thanks so much for your lovely comments. Christmas is well and truly over, even though the cold I picked up is still linering, and the New Year is underway … and with this it is time for our first challenge of the year 2014 at Addicted to Stamps and More …  Challenge #77 – Make your Mark!!!

This Challenge is all about using your markers and pens, the full details of the challenges and their rules can be found here.

Our sponsor this week is Deedee’s Digis.

The winner will receive 3 digi sets of their choice.

Here is my DT piece for this week:

Metallic Gelatos I

Well I actually ended up making two. I was playing with my Metallic Gelato Pens. For the first card I simply scribbled them on some card and brushed a damp paintbrush over the top and left it to dry. Once dry I inked up my stamp, Sketch Flower13 Papermania Hampsted by docrafts, with black Memento Ink, stamped the flower and cut it to size, layered it on a piece of black card and attached it to my embossed base card before finishing off with a sequin. I used a texture plate (Texturz by Sizzix) for a softer finish than I would get using an embossing folder, you can get a similar effect using a mask or thin stencil combined with a soft embossing mat suitable for your die cut machine.

Metallic Gelatos II

For my second card I used the Gelatos to colour my stamp, I ten moistened it with a damp brush and stamped onto white card, cut it to size and layered on black. I attached the paper ribbon which I cut from a piece of digital paper by All About Scrapping to my embossed base card before layering my image on top using 3D foam.

The Metallic Gelatos are very iridescent, sadly you can’t see it that well on the picture, and suit the CAS style of card very well.

Hope you like it!
