6x6 drips

Over at Artful Evidence the theme this week is drips and splatters.
Here is what I did. I used 6x6 watercolor paper and distress oxide inks for the background. I used Drips stamp from Lost Coast Designs on the top of the page. Then I used Tim Holtz splatter stencil for the splatters all over the card. Then I stamped Bowtie Bulldog from KatzelKraft that Lost Coast Designs is selling.
I'm going to enter it in these challenges.

Flying High Hog ATC

Flying Hog ATC.

 Stamps Used:
Small Fairy

Other Supplies Used:
Black ink
Foam squares
Copic markers

I first started off with some paint sticks and colored the ATC background with them. I used blues, pink and orange to make it look like a sky color.  Next I grabbed a cloud stencil and with white paint I sponges the clouds in. I set that aside to dry.

Then I took the hog stamp and stamped him on a scrap  white cardstock. I colored him with Copic markers. I cut him out and edged him with black marker so you don't see the cut lines.

Next I stamped out the small fairy wings from a scrap paper I was playing with some inks on. Cut them out and added them to the hog.  Added foam squares to back and attached to front of ATC.
There you have a Flying Hog.

Farting Rainbows

 Frist of all I stared making this card by grabbing some watercolor paper and my Distress Oxide inks. I did the smooching technique on the craft mat to get my background to the way it is.
Next I took Grunge Diamond Background stamp and some black ink and randomly stamped it all over the background.
 I took the Farting Unicorn saying and stamped it with Versafine ink on pink cardstock and I used white embossing power. Then I took a die and cut it out and used Distress ink and inked the edges of the saying.
Then I stamped Birthday Mona on white paper and colored it with Copic markers using colors to work with the background I made. I cut it out and I added some tinsel to the top of the hat.
 Last I glued it all to the front of the card and then layered it on black cardstock.
The saying  is great for birthday cards or a card just to send a friend to make them smile.
Go check out all the great saying at Carmen's Veranda shop. I think there is something for everyone.
Last but not least come join us for the Say what ? challenge here.

3 eyed raven

Winter is coming says the 3 eyed raven. This stamp Four ravens reminds me of the T.V. show Game of Thrones.
 Frist off I stamped She Loved the Sea saying with Versafine ink on the card to use it as a background.

Next I stamped Winter is coming on a scrap white cardstock. Tore it out and colored it with distress ink.
Then I made this wing with a mold I got. It had to dry for 2 days for me before I could paint it.
I used black paint and then I used Opal Magic wax over top to give it the blue tint.
 So I took the Four Raven stamp and stamped it on copic friendly paper and ink and then I colored it with copics markers.
I cut out the Four Raven with a die and I glued it on the card then I took the dried and painted wing and glued it to the front of the card. Then I used foam squares to add the Winter is coming saying to the top of the card.

Raven Shaker Card

Today I have a shaker card for you. I made it for the Anything Goes challenge over at Lost Coast Design Portal blog.
 I started off cutting a large circle from a nested circle die set. Then I stamped Raven Queen on it with Copic friendly black ink. Then I colored it in with Copic Markers.  Next I cut out a circle from some transparency film. Then I used the largest and the second largest circle dies and made a ring from white cardstock.
I then grabbed some sequences and glued some on the Raven Queen circle piece. Taped the transparency film to the cut out ring then added foam squares to it. Then I added my sequences to it and then I took my circle that I stamped and colored Raven Queen on and put it together.  Ta-Da. Shaker card on the way.
Then I grabbed a card base and stamped my corner swirl with Versa mark ink and embossed it with white embossing power. Then I glued the circle shaker to the card base and shaker card DONE..

Make a wish ATC

                                                I forgot how much fun it is to make ATCs.
 Over at Blank Page Muse the challenge is ATCs. What a fun challenge this is going to be.

Stamps Used:
Largest Water drop
 Single Dandelion Blowing in the Wind Rubber Stamp by Terri Sproul
Small Fairy

Other Supplies Used:
Distress Ink
91% Isopropyl Alcohol
Glossy Accents
Copic Markers
Wink Of Stela
Foam Squares
Black Ink
word sticker

 I started of with a ATC and some distress inks and some 91% isopropyl alcohol.

You do it the same way as the smooching technique on the craft mat but instead of water you use alcohol.
This is what I came up with. The thing about this technique the paper does not buckle. It also dries fast because of the alcohol.
 Frist I stamped the largest water drop on the bottom of the ATC.  Then I stamped the small fairy on top of the water drop.  I did take some water and a brush to take some color away from inside the water drop. When that was done I covered the drop in glossy accents.

 On a scrap paper I stamped the wings of the small fairy and colored them with Copic markers. I then cut out and then added them with foam squares to the fairy.
Then I stamped just the seeds from the single dandelion coming out of her hands. After it was all done I added Wink of Stela to the wings and the seeds to give it sparkle.  Last I added a word sticker from Tim Holtz small talk.
I hope you enjoyed my ATC. Please go check our my other Blank Page Muse team mates ATCs.
Also we would love to see your ATCs come join us here.

Dreamcatcher Card

          Today I was playing with Large Elk Skull from Lost Coast Designs.

                                       I chose my colors from BOHO Vibes paper pack.

 I trimmed the paper to fit on a A2 size card. I edged my paper with some distress inks and then I stamped Large Elk Skull with black ink in the center. 
 Next I grabbed a cream color cardstock and stamped just the skull and flowers on it with Copic friendly ink. Colored with Copic and cut out. Edged with black marker so you don't see the edge of the paper. After I glued the skull and flowers I grabbed some bling and added it where the mini dreamcatchers hang off the antlers.
I hope to see your Anything Goes. You have a chance to win some Lost Coast or Carmen's Veranda bucks. Enter here.

6x6 Flowers

There is a Facebook challenge group and it is called Artful Evidence. It's the first week and the first challenge is flowers.

This is what I came up with for it. I started out with watercolor paper and I grabbed my Nuance powders.  I dried that with my heat gun and set it aside.

Then I fussy cut them out and edged them with black marker so you don't see the white paper.
Then I grabbed one of these papers that I made from before.( Water and alcohol ink dip.) I used it for the grass and the stems. Last I added a Tim Holtz sentiment sticker.
