In the forest
alcohol on yupo
I loved how this came out! I was experimenting with lifting off the alcohol ink using stamps and a new product called "Lift Off" by the infamous Tim Holtz. I can't wait to see what magic he shows at Creativations this week! Anyway...this has an earthy quality. I love the brown and blue mix and the resulting greens that showed up. Its an uncontrollable medium for the most part.
I think this will make a lovely card front.

Ink on Yupo
When it was all dry, I stamped the butterfly on top using Ranger archival inks. The stamp is an OLD Stampin' Up stamp that is no longer sold.

I spent the day crafting with a friend yesterday and she gifted me several rubber stamps she no longer wanted. I will never say no to rubbah...lol
Last night I used two of the stamps in this spread in my art journal. First I used Distress Oxide inks for the background, then used embossing powders to make it all grungy. The butterfly is just from my stash and I mounted it on to paper covered chipboard.
I am pleased with the result.

I finally had a total hip replacement, so I have not been able to do any crafting this past month. Just getting to the point where ideas are filtering in. In the meantime, I made this card just prior to my surgery.
I made the poinsettia from my Cricut. I think my Cricut has already paid for itself in the dies I have NOT purchased. Instead I make cut files on Cricut and cut away. I also cut out the green background piece.

5x7I have a friend that loves the color purple. I made this Christmas card for her. I painted cardstock with Jaquard halo purple gold paint. Then I embossed it. Then I used an old Stampin' Up die set (retired) for the ornaments. I layered dark purple, gold and the paper I made. The angles are from Anna Griffin Christmas Angels. I am not a huge fan of purple, but I do love how this card turned out.
