Orange

Today , I present a canvas that I made recently . The background is made with different scrap papers and some inks in spray and of course a little touch of Modeling paste with yellow paint  . For the heart , of paper too, I put the stamp: "Distressed Grid" from Unity Stamp Company  on the background and some Distress Ink before finishing it with some Crackle Paint ( Picket Fence from Ranger) and glue on the edges. The ribbon who was inking too. The small key was painted with Patina from Ranger , and has two wings (plastique sheet , stamp by  Prima who are coloring with Glitter Glaze from Tattered Angels) . For the finishing touch, I put wire wrapped on top of the heart and a nice phrase (stamp from Denim Tampons) that I can translate you : We cannot find happiness, we can only make it  .
Let's see the pictures now !!!





 







That's it for today !

Unique cards

I like discovering new techniques and the magazine "Craft Stamper" always gives me some opportunities to do so. In the edition of November 2014 on page 10 and 11 "Shimmer &Shine"by Jenny Marples I found some good ideas.
She works with different media to do a unique background for cards.
Step by step:

1.working with your alcohol ink (rangers )   


 card 1



card 2


2.Working with embossing paste with Perfect Pearls powder (or modeling paste) and stencil

3. Stamp and embossed (not an obligation) a motif , color it .

My result :

A lot of different ways to made a unique card !
Have a good day and thank you for having a look.
