Rainbow Card

Hello Everybody!

I love rainbows! They are so pretty and happy!  

So using my silhouette machine I made this rainbow:

I cut the rainbow and clouds from glitter paper.  The sentiment is a crazy talk by Tim Holtz. (One of my favorites-I know you wanted to know) :)

Pineapple Mixed Media

Hello Everybody!

I hope everyone is having a good summer so far (given the circumstances).  One thing about summer is pineapple!  Not to mention pineapples seem to be sort of in style right now with llamas and cacti.  I think its awesome!  

So I had this idea to make a pineapple picture out of gears.  I love Finnabair products so I thought let's make this happen.  Ta Da! :)

I love how this turned out.  Here's how I made it:

8X10 Canvas painted with Golden Cerulean Blue Chromium liquid acrylic 
Molds-Finnabair Mechanica, Cogs and Wings, and the swirl decoration for the leaves and there are a couple of gears from a mod podge mold
Clay-usually an air dry paper clay that I get at the craft store
Paints-gear Finnabair Sparks Unicorn's Hair and the leaves are Sparks Fairy Wings
Wax-Finnabair Lucky Emerald-on the leaves to add a little depth 
I used the unicorn's hair around the edges of the painting to give a little definition
Hot Glue to make everything stay in place.  

Here's a side profile.  I like that the "leaves" kind of come away from the canvas.

Here is an up close of the pineapple gears and the leaves.

Thank you for stopping by today! Until next time my friends-keep enjoying summer! :)

Rainbow Card Challenge July!

Hello Friends!

It's time for a new challenge at the Rainbow Card Challenge!  This month we are all about Tangerine!

Here's my card:

I have been watching Tim Holtz, and I believe that influenced this card.  Here is my step by step.

For the background panel I swiped spiced marmalade on this embossing folder.  Now the one pictured below must have slide because toward the bottom it's all weird.  So I did it again.  :) And I love this technique because it looks like it was printed on there in some fancy way. 

Here is a picture of the one I used on the card.  The raised areas stayed white.  

For the butterfly I used spiced marmalade and rusty hinge distress crayons and moved the color with water.  First I painted gesso on the cardstock.  When it was dry, I used a Tim H. butterfly die from sizzix and cut it out.  

I used a hampton spring on the butterfly so the butterfly could "fly" :)

The sentiment is a gold prisma color marker on paper that I then cut out with a Tim H. die.  Same technique as the butterfly just a different marker tool.  And I cut vellum for the shadow.

I hope you join us this month!  We would love to see your Tangerine cards!

Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time friends! :)
