Today is Full of Possibilities



Hi Stamping Friends,

It’s time to play along with Happy Little Stampers (HLS) Mixed Media Challenge again. The October Challenge Theme is CRACKLE.

For more details and other DTs’ inspirations, please check out the Challenge Blog. Anything mixed media could be linked up to our challenge as long as it follows our theme. Be sure to join for a chance to win $20.

Were it not for this challenge, I wouldn’t have dug out the crackle paste!  Ha! The following are how I made this tag.

Tag Details


1. Apply several DIY Distress Mists over two overlapping stencils (by TWC) on a watercolor tag. For DIY Distress Mist recipes, please check out my old post.


2. Ink the white area by Distress ink.


3. Apply a thick layer of Crackle Paste over the butterfly stencil (by Memory Box) on tag and let dry.



4. Color crackled butterflies by Distress Stains. Apply Gold Distress Stain Mist to create splatter effects.

 

5. Heat emboss text (by Simon Says Stamp) in white on black card scrap, adhere sequins and assemble the tag as shown on top.


I hope my tag is inspirational to you and hope today is full of possibilities for your craft creations. Wish you a great day and thanks for stopping by.

Hello friend, hope this CAS one-layer card is eye-pleasing to you. Thanks for stopping by.

Today is a Good Day to Smile



Hi Stamping Friends,

It’s time to play along with Happy Little Stampers (HLS) Mixed Media Challenge again. The September Challenge Theme is COLLAGE.

For more details and other DTs’ inspirations, please check out the Challenge Blog. Anything mixed media could be linked up to our challenge as long as it follows our theme. Be sure to join for a chance to win $20.
 
Were it not for this challenge, I wouldn’t have dug out patterned paper scraps and some previous DIY book pages from my old project leftover box. The following are how I made this tag.
 
Tag Details

1. Adhere patterned paper scraps and DIY book pages to tag to create a collage using Gel Medium.

2. While Gel Medium is wet, cover the collage with several pieces of tissue paper, creating some wrinkle effects, to reach Shabby Chic look.


3. Die cut butterflies. Apply Distress Inks on the white butterfly.


4. Heat Emboss text in white on black cardstock. Torn the edge. Lay silver sting under the butterfly. Assemble the tag as shown.


I must say I’m quite delighted for what I’ve made. Hope this tag is eye-pleasing to you. I also hope “today is a good day to smile” for you. Thanks for stopping by.
