4x4 Rhino with wings

So I started out with Strathmore Artist Tile 4x4.
 I wanted to see how Distress Oxide worked with Nuance Powers. So I did one color of the Distress Oxide (wilted violet). I had to use my favorite color. Then I did the smooching technique with the Distress Oxide. Dried that and then made a watercolor out of the blue, green and purple  Nuance powers .( had some orange left over from when I did the first 4x4 tile so I added it here too)

Next I added them to my 4x4 tile. I hit that with a heat gun to dry.  When dry I stamped the Grunge Diamond Background from Carmen's Veranda.
 When I was looking at it I thought it still needed something so I splattered black and white paint on it. When that was drying I stamped my Rhino and Winged Skeleton and colored with Copic markers.
I cut the wings of the skeleton and attached them to my rhino and then I took a stamping block that had waves on the side and traced that with a thin black marker to give some lines for the rhino to stand on then I glued the rhino in place.

Be Happy

Hi there, Cathy here to show you how I made my Be Happy postcard. I really had fun doing this postcard and I hope you give it a try. Here is most of the supplies I used to make this.

 First I added molding paste thought a stencil onto my postcard. Then I let dry. Clean your stencil right away because you do not want to get the paste stuck on there. Then the stencil becomes useless

Next I put some Nuance powers onto my craft mat and sprayed them with water and made them into watercolor

Heat dried this
Next I stamped the Corner swirl with green ink and Grunge diamond background with blue ink. I stamped them in their same watercolor colors

Close up.
Next I used a image from the coloring book. I had already had cut up the page before so I cut out the flower and colored it with Copic markers. Edge it with black so you don't see the white edges.  Then I cut it in half to put on the edge of the post card.
                                                     (this is the other half)

Last I stamped Be Crazy Be Stupid saying and cut it out. Taped it to the postcard and I outlined the words with thin line black marker.

I hope this gets your creative juices flowing and try something like it. Thanks for looking
