Day 3 ARTplorations Stencil Blog Hop

Wau, it's already day 3 in wonderful:

Hope you have been hopping with us, what a awesome ways of using stencils there is. I'm very inspired by the project other DT's had done.

I have today two cards to show you, this is what I first had in my mine

Firs I sprayed some green color, then I took the Bubbles - ARTplorations Stencil and covered with the Distress Crackle paint. After paint was dry I used some Inka Gold to make crackles show a little better.
I used so much paint on the stencil that I tought it would be a shame to loose all that was on it, so I flipped the stencil and got this:

After this paint was dry, I placed my stencil back on, used some clear embossing paste and glitter to make it shine.

These both are Thank you cards for the teachers (my daughter wanted to have cars on her male teacher... )

So glad you joined our hop, hope you have a good luck with the generous prizes Shery is giving:

SIX (6) winners (2 winners per day) will receive their choice of ARTplorations stencil. Winners will be randomly drawn from all comments left on the designers' blogs.

I played the GAME

When fellow CT's at DiD (Dream in Darkness) told me that Domino Art is creating Halloween in the middle of the spring, I was very exited and didn't hesitate when there was a change to join in

Two of the CT's in DiD have already revealed their altered game pieces: fabulous altered domino bracelet by Nan and awesome tin bow & playing cards by Kim, Now it's 6th day of terror and it is indeed my turn. Wicked!

Since I have never ever altered any games, I decided my first one must be something easy, so I took childrens 4 piece wooden puzzle and started to "work" on it ....

Image is coloured with ColourSofts and is The East Wind "Midnight Mermaid". And let the game continue...

Paper and the alphabets are from Delicious Darkness shop that is no more, BUT (happy dance) Teri has a new Etsy shop: Arti Doodles, The images I've used are not in the shop, but maybe Teri could add them there if someone askes???

Really like the effect that Crackle Accent and Perfect Pearl together gives

The stuff I have used to made this seaworld:
Gesso, Acrylic paint, Lindy’s stamp gang sprays, Silk paper, glue. Inka Gold paints, die cut, sea shells, charms, ColourSofts, Alcohol Inks, Crackle Accent, Glossy, glitter, Perfect Pearl, Copics and ofcource that wooden puzzle

To some challenges:

Oddball - girl in a rain

It's been raining (and snowing) a lot this spring so I made something rainy:

Used some inks for the papers and waterdrop stamp, and pretty girl is from Oddball, Wanda Image nro 9 and what is the brilliant part, she comes with a sad and smily face, so you get 2 in price of one and 10% off using code DTGRANNE10. Just fab! I coloured her with Copics and the sentiment is from TLC.

Kurssikaverille tuli tarvetta pienen tytön ristiäiskorttiin ja toiveena oli pinkkiä, :). Tämän Mo'n söpöydenhän tietenkin printtailin - sopii sekä prinsessalle että prinssille potkupuvun väriä vaihtamalla.

Ja äitini pyysi tuttavaperheen tyttären vauvan syntymän kunniaksi myöskin vauvakortin. Pyyntihetkellä ei vielä tiedetty onko tulossa tyttö vai poika, joten vähän "unisex" väreissä tämä

Muutamaan haasteeseen vauvakorteilla:

Brown Sugar - AG
Crafting Musketeers - stanssi
Krafting Kimmie - vauva
Open-Minded Crafting - shabby chic

STAMPlorations - stamps and leaves - May challenge

Can you believe is May already? Summer is comming, summer is comming!!!  Light, flowers, grass, green leaves on the trees ... And speeking of leaves, those are the ones we'd love to see at STAMPlorations May challenge - Stamps and Leaves. Such fun!

I first used Gelatos to colour the blue sky, then I stamp randomly some green leaves with Memento Ink and Trendy Leaves -stamp. Then I stamped some more leaves with green and brown on top of green and cut them and used 3D stickers to place them on top of the branch.. I used Sizzix die to make a branch out of cork sheet. Lovely sentiment is from Trendy Feathers -set.

I hope everyone is having a lovely spring time and would love to see your "leaves" makes, :).
