what did you say???

A TAG!!!
Well I'd be more than HAPPY to make one!!!

I started rootin' through my pull out an OLDIE but GOODIE!!
Nature Grungeboard.

I had a "wonder if this will work" moment.

Colored the grungeboard pieces with various Distress Stains
then I lathered on some Beeswax that had
been melted in a Melt Pot with Project Pan.
Using my Heat It Tool.....I melted the wax to infuse it
into the grungeboard.
When cooled I brushed on various Perfect Pearls
(and it just sticks!!)

Love it when a THOUGHT works!!

For the tag.....
I stamped various images with Archival Inks.
Using my Ink Blending Tool, I covered the tag with various Distress Inks.
With that heated Beeswax....I painted it on the tag.
Infused it into the card with my Heat It Tool.

Are you READY TO MAKE A TAG!!???!?!

Anything goes.....

Another week....Another challenge
at Simon Says Stamp and Show!

and this week's is a good one....

I began with a Canvas Corp ~ 12 x 12 Black Velvet Chunky.
I then cut a piece of Canvas Corp Burlap and adhered it with Multi Medium.
Next came the flowers.....

Using the Spiral Blossoms Die, I cut multiple flowers from Blank Canvas Artistic Paper.

I used various Distress Satins,
Distress Reinker mister, Distress Reinkers and water.
Finishing off the flowers by spritzing them with
 Bronze and Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls Mists.

I created the anonymous saying using Alpha Parts ~ Ransom and Newsprint.
I applied a base of Snow Cap Alcohol Ink then dabbed on Gold Alcohol Ink.
Everything was adhered to the canvas with Multi Medium.

So.......what is your Anything Goes Project.

Bottle it......

The challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show is Bottle It.....
Now I OBVIOUSLY have on idea what a bottle is cause in all truth.... 

I used two jars in my creation
you see......
I had an idea in my head and I HAD TO MAKE IT...
Now.....don't follow my lead as it may
disqualify you from winning this....

I began my illegal creation with apply
Butterscotch and Terra Cotta Alcohol Inks
with an Alcohol Ink Applicator

To create the flower I used Wendy Vecchi's AMAZING technique!!

For a slightly different look
I painted the Clearly for Art ~ WhiteOut
with Black Gesso
then Distress Crackle ~ Rock Candy
Then I randomly dabbed on
Snow Cap Alcohol Ink
then Lettuce Alcohol Ink
what a great look!!

So, I hope you have a little better luck
following the rules than I did!!
