Mixed Media Sea Themed Art Card

 Happy Wednesday Everyone! 
Today I am sharing an art card I made with several mixed media supplies and mediums. 
Supplies used today are; 
Golden Molding Paste
Watercolor sticks
Pigment Ink
Stazon  brown Ink 
Collection of driftwood, sand dollar , oyster shell, tree lichen
dyed cheese cloth
hand drawn large sand dollar
Mini Art Stones Finnabair
Black Gel Pen
Dictionary page
Golden matte medium 

 I laid my watercolors down and let it dry. Then I used the molding paste and stencils from Mixed Media Supplies.  Next it was time for some stamping in Stazon inks so not to smudge. I used dictionary paper in a few sparse places with some matte medium to stick it down. 
Watercolors were used for color on my white background and splattering was a must!
I used a cap to create the circles on my page again I used brown stazon ink. 
The black circle to the right is a real baby sand dollar I picked up from my many trips to Rathtrevor Beach on Vancouver Island. 
I hand drew a larger sand dollar and cut holes in it. I also drew the star shape in the middle and covered it with mini art stones. With a gel pen I made marks on the sand dollar as well as the edges of my card. 
And that's it! I put all my embellishments in place and glued it all down.

Watercolor Fun!

I am loving my new watercolor pencils by Derwent and crayons from Staedtler. I had no idea it could be this fun! I love this medium and this is my first attempt at watercolors on 140lb watercolor paper.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Calm Moonlit Night Card

 Happy Moonday! lol
Today I bring you a card made with my eBrush by Craftwell USA and our sponsors this month Teresa Collins and Clearsnap. 
 I used the City stamp by Clearsnap and Teresa Collins fabulous pigment, archival platinum silver and feisty red ink pads.
I started with some white cardstock and taped off half of my page with painters tape which is not the best as it will lift your paper if you pull it up too fast upon removal. 
I sprayed the top of the card with four shades of blue alcohol based ink markers using my eBrush by Craftwell 
 Next I stamped this cityscape with platinum silver for the buildings and feisty red ink for the land by taping off the stamp to apply ink.

 When I removed my tape I was able to cover the top portion of my skyline , turn upside down and mirror image the stamp image for the water reflection. I added wave like marks with a paint pen as well as draw the moon. I also added some yellow watercolor paint on top for a city glow on the water.
I backed my image up on white and black cardstock and adhered all to a card base. 
I hope you enjoyed today's card. 
Warmly,
Peggy Oliver

Who is that in Outer Space

Happy Saturday!! Today I have a tag/card with the theme Outer Space for the challenge going on at the Sisterhood of Snarky Sisters!

I thought I would bring out my gelli plate and play with some space colors. I chose black , and two shades of blue acrylic paint.  I made three prints off my plate and I was satisfied with my results. When my prints were completely dry I added some watercolor crayons for any spaces in the white cardstock that were still white and I drew in any details that might help my "outerspace" look like planets.   Next it was time to  cut out a space ship. I used my second gelli plate print for this and just free handed a rocketship.
Then it was time for a focal image .. I found a space suit online and decided to add Edna to the suit and printed her off and for a 3d faux effect I printed her out twice in different sizes.. I had a bunch of fun!!  so , head on over the the Sisterhood of Snarky Sisters for the SOSS Challenge #62 "O -Outer Space".
Have a Great Weekend!!

I love you because card with Latina Crafters










 Happy Monday! Peggy here and I would like to show you a card made with my eBrush by Craftwell USA and our sponsor this month Latina Crafters!
This is a large card. I took a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of cardstock and folded it in half.  I chose a stencil from Latina Crafters to encircle my focal image on the front.  Using my eBrush I sprayed onto photo paper with a metallic marker.  Using this paper gave me the shine I was going for.  Next I embossed my inside sentiments with Latina Crafter Stamps in Gold embossing powder and I cut them out for placement onto the inside of my card.  I cut out a film strip to place my photo's inside and I continued the same stencil pattern on the top of my film strip spraying with my eBrush. 
I put it all together! 
DAD I love you because
You're the funniest man I know!
and 
You tickle me and make me giggle!
Sending you buckets of Love xxxooo

Have a great week!!

Latina Crafters and Craftwell USA Card!


Hello Fellow Crafters! Today's card showcases Latina Crafters Stamps and Stencils  and Craftwell USA eBrush System using markers. 

I made this  5.5x5.5 card on a cardstock base. 
I started with my sentiment from Latina Crafters. I stamped this in Stazon Black. 
Next I used my stencil to create a sun like effect using my eBrush I sprayed on top of the stencil using two different colors of markers, yellow and orange.  
Next I punched out a flower border with a punch. 
I used a die to cut the background and I colored that with gelato's. I used a ribbon to cut my imageview into thirds and added a paper flower and butterfly.

Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers V is for Vroom



Challenge #61 V is for Vroom! Here is my card for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers. My fellow sisters challenge you to create a project using the theme "V is for Vroom". I totally love my coloring books and using different mediums to achieve the look I am going for. Today I used Copic Markers for my groovy VW van and keeping up with the flower theme I used as many bright colors as I could. My background behind the van was created using my brightest Gelato's.

This is the inside.. I thought it very appropriate for my VW flower power van!

Have a great Saturday and head on over to the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers to join in on the challenge!

Warmly,
Peggy

Mixed Media Journal page with Sabor

Good Morning! Today I would like to show you my mixed media journal page.. I have done some airbrushing with my eBrush and stencils and played with some Sabor papers and lacquer. 
Today's supplies: 
Markers
Lacquer
Doodling Pen
Stencils

I started with a mixed media journal page to spray my stencils. 

 The first background stencil I sprayed was with a gold marker.
 I chose some marker colors to compliment the designer paper. 

I layered my stencils to create this background. 
Next I used a pencil and roughly drew a heart in the middle of my stenciling pattern. 
I cut up some Sabor papers to create a mosaic type look and glued them to my journal in the shape of the heart that I drew.  Then I applied a lacquer on top of each piece of designer paper. 
Then it was time to doodle. I created a frame and just doodled until I was satisfied with the look. 

 I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and check out Sabor papers and Craftwell USA for your supplies. 

Warmly,
