4x4 Steampunk Tile

Hello all. Cathy here with a 4x4 Steampunk Art Tile.
So I went and grabbed 1 of my 4x4 Art tiles. I felt like using my Distress Oxide inks. I thought what colors have I not played with? Brown. So I grabbed the browns. Walnut stain, vintage photo and antique linen.
I did the smooching technique with the inks and a craft mat. When I was happy with the background I moved on to adding my stencil.
Next I stamped the bird on bike with black ink. Then I added some gears to the wheels of the bike. Stamped the Steampunk word from Carmen's Veranda. Then I cut the word in half. Edged the word and 4x4 tile with vintage photo. Glued word and gears on top and done....

Winged Dino

I hade this fun card the other day. I used Nuance Power for the background. I did splatter it with white paint but I felt it melted into the background. So I grabbed my star stencil and some white ink.
My dino is from the coloring book over at Lost Coast.  The wings are from crouching angel

Brain Farts

Yes the title did say brain farts. I made this card from using the Lost Coast/Carmen Veranda's coloring book. It is like you get a 2 for 1 deal with this coloring book. You get to color it once the you can cut it all up and make cards, tags, journals whatever your mind can think up.
So Are you wondering where the Brain farts come in. Well I saw this monkey on the bottom of the page and the saying from Carmen Veranda's and BAM that was it.
The monkey was colored with Copic markers and I added glossy accents to the eyes. (you probably can't tell that)

How-to Paintbrush Poe

Hello all in blog land. It is Cathy here with my paintbrush Poe.

This is how I made it.
First get a cheap paintbrush( I got my from Michael's)
I painted the handle and the bristles with white paint. Then I painted the frame white.

Next I added black paint to the frame when it was still wet so it turned gray in spots.
Then I added black to my paint bristles. Then I rubbed some black paint in spots on the frame. Next I took some purple paint and added it to the bristles. When That was drying I took some gold and rubbed it oh so lightly over the frame to add a hint of gold to it. Then I added it to the bristles. I did add paint to the front and back of the brush and bristles.
So while that was all drying I stamped out my Goth Poe from the new stamps at Lost Coast. Colored it with Copic markers. When the frame was dry I traced the inside oval so I could cut out and add it to the frame.
The last thing I did was glue it all together. It was a fun altered paintbrush to do.

 Thanks for looking. Enjoy
