STAMPlorations - Stencil Sunday

For this months Stencil Sunday I made something really pretty:

AJ page using Trendy Butterflies stamp set 
and Peony Number Two stencil.

I colored the background using glycerin and inks,
modeling paste with the stencil and white ink
with the butterflies. Then added some details with white pen, :=).

There is still time to link to the current 
Mixed media challenge at STAMPlorations:

There is a change to win:
$15 gift certificate OR choice of any 
2 ARTplorations stencils to the winner
and choice of 1 ARTplorations stencil to the top picks.

The theme is always anything mixed media goes except a card 
and you must use at least one stencil (any brand) in your project.

I'd  like to enter to some challenges:
Simon Says Wednesday - Fantastic Florals
Sweet Stamping - Flowers
Try it on Tuesday - Lets get messy

Progressive Challenge at Bloobels

brings a fantastic set of a happy baker and a awesome
sheet of goodies to go with her.

Since I don't really care about cakes 
BUT do love my coffee:

I colored the image with Copics and the background is made
using napkin. I made a four at the same time and love how
the "mood" varies depending 
from the color of the paper under the napkin.

Background papers being orange, green and black here, :=)

I'd like to enter to some challenges:
Ike's - AG
Penny's - AG


Rhyme for February

This month The Craft Barn is challenging with
this rhyme

and the project must also include a cherub and a heart
- must say, this was a challenge for me, LOL

But I took it and watercolors, heart stamp from Rubber Dance,
embossing powders, Tim Holtz cherub stamp, acetate and a pen...
... and this is how my ATC turned out:

February is still a full winter month here,
so I felt like making it quite icy...

Wicked Wednesday has a "Heart" theme challenge,
so I'm entering there too with this icecherub and
and hope it has enough layers for Rubber Dance "Layers" challenge...


STAMPlotations Love TAGplorations blog hop


I'm so happy to join STAMPlorations fun

I used lots of paints, real stitching, some flowers, big Prima tag,
gorgeous Zen Hearts stencil, You & Me Phrase Die and 
Balloons and Banners stamp set, to create this warm tag.

Thank you so much for hoping here, I do hope 
you are having a wonderful time, hugs!


Elefantin paino....

Ellinooran biisi "Elefantin paino" on pyörinyt
mielessä jonkun aikaa ja mikäpä sen sieltä
paremmin pois sais kun askartelu...

toinen mielessä pyörinyt asia oli Rubber Dancen tämän kuun
haasteen värikombinaatio, kaunis:

Käytin AJ aukeaman tekemiseen DI musteita sotkettuna Glyseriiniin,
Carabellen sapluunaa ja Rubber Dancen leimoja:


STAMPlorations Mixed Media challenge for February

New month brings a new Mixed Media challenge
at STAMPlorations, yey!!

This month I'm kind of recycling:
Round board is a bottom from a box and the

using watercolor and salt.

Then I took some wonderful STAMPlorations stuff and made
it all glittery and fab, lol.
I used: Amazing die, Dragonfly Waltz stencil and Trendy Leaves 2 stamps.
And added a big paperflower and a piece of ribbon...
