Frida Greeting Card

I just received my set of the new Dina Wakley "Homage to Frida" stamps.  I am a big fan of Frida Kahlo's work.  I had previously prepared the card background using a gelli print.  I stamped the flower stamp with Ranger magenta hue archival ink on the background and added white accents with a white Signo pen.  I stamped Frida on watercolor paper with the magenta hue ink and colored her in with various Distress Inks and a water brush.  White accents were added with the white Signo pen.  The words are Tim Holtz chit chat stickers.  Thanks for stopping by to view my new Frida greeting card.

March Easter Tag Swap

At the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group, the March swap is an Easter tag swap.  I used the following items available at Collage Stuff:  inventory tags, white lace, burlap string, Victorian scrap, vintage sheet music and small dragonfly brass charms.  I started out making a background using acrylic paints and Stencil Girl stencils.  The honeycomb  in the background is from Tim Holtz.  I added vintage sheet music and an image of Easter sheet music.  The Easter Victorian scrap was applied next, some vintage sheet music at the bottom, and added the dragonfly charms.  "Easter Greetings" was printed and aged with Antique Linen Distress Stain. White lace and burlap string in natural and red finish off the tags.  Thanks for coming by to see my Easter tags!

Letter B ATC Swap

The February ATC swap at the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group has the theme of the letter "B".  I started out with an inventory tag (available at Collage Stuff) and over stamped it with a Tim Holtz background stamp.  I clear embossed the black stamped image.  Next the teal color in the corners with a Stencil Girl stencil and Dylusions paint.  I used Distress Inks with Tim Holtz stencils in the lighter part of the background.  I stamped the bird image on watercolor paper and colored it with Distress Inks.  The bird is standing on black washi tape.  I edged the ATC with black washi tape.  Thanks for taking a peek at my letter B ATC.
