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,

Today I bring you my Snarky quilters card. This challenge was presented by the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers and we bring you "Q" for quilts.  now I have to admit this was a tricky one for me as I do not quilt paper or otherwise.  But I found a snarky sentiment and had to use it.  I hope you enjoy it!

Quick Home Decor

 Hello everyone! Peggy here and I am so proud to be on the Craftwell USA design team for another term! A big Welcome to my fellow design team members. 
Today I bring you a quick canvas that I placed in a frame at the last minute, but I wanted to show you how I made this canvas. 

The first thing I did to the canvas was spray paint it using my eBrush system with attachments. I used a dark blue marker for the bottom and a second lighter marker for the top half. 
Then I took out my siphon system by Craftwell filling my well with parts titanium white, liquid medium and water.  I added highlights as a reflection of light from above. 

Next I picked a coloring book picture that I liked and using some gel medium I pasted the picture right out of my book onto my canvas.  I brushed both the picture and the canvas and left to dry. 

After drying I wet the canvas with water spraying to moisten the paper for removal. 
the picture face down was the picture that was revealed. 
I lined the entire picture with a black gelly roll pen. 

I used some painter's tape to tape off the edges of my canvas and sprayed them with my eBrush to create a frame. 
I hope you enjoyed today's quick project using our eBrush by Craftwell and checking out our siphon system!
