Paperbabe Stamps Second day Introductions with Bottle Of.

Good morning, thanks for stopping by, 
We're on the second day of introductions for Paperbabe Stamps

I've created a clean and simple decor piece today, I was going for a pastel chalk finish on my bottles with an embossed label area, I think they need work, lol
I've covered the largest circle from my hanging circle media blanks with some patterned paper and inked the edges.
I've added half a doily to create a shelf area. 
Then glued the two circular hanging parts to the back for dimension.
For the bottles I adhered the bottle lip before I've painted two layers of matt acrylic paints,
when completely dry I've stamped the ornate label and sentiments in embossing powder.
I used the cork top stamp to add a little texture to the cork tops in the mdf substrates kit. Then simply adhered in place. What every home needs, love, magic and happiness.

Now it's time to visit the rest of the wonderful team's fabulous projects...

Thank you very much for stopping by.
Enjoy a wonderfully creative day.

Introducing Paperbabe Stamps 'Bottle of' Release

We're introducing a new stamp set, stencils and substrates on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today and here's my sample, just one today, my time is spread too thin right now...
I imagined a bottle of fairy dust would be a fab card for any magical occasion.
I stamped the outline bottle first, then the crown top and ornate label, I've coloured the whole image in using copic markers: 0, C4, C3, C1, RV10, RV11, RV34, YG41, YG45.
I've gone over the pink with wink of stella because all fairy dust sparkles.
I've used a white coloured pencil, and added dots with my posca pen to add the swirl of magic around the bottle. The base card I've added a sparkle tape to the edges before adding the image on dimensional adhesive.

If you get a moment why not visit the rest of the amazing team's fabulous projects...

Thanks for stopping by, I should have another inspirational sample tomorrow so pop by then.

Enjoy a wonderfully creative day!

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #44 ~ Picture Inspiration

we have a lovely picture inspiration to challenge you this fortnight over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today...

I had loads of fun creating this drawing I was completely inspired to use only ink as it's Inktober and I would love to be taking part, but I just can't spare the time right now.
So, I used lots of my mixed media templates...
Firstly the Long loose wave for her flowing hair along with the all important head & torso template. I started with pencil and went over the lines in black pen, and biro for the thinner faint lines. I stamped her features using the female face stamp.
I'm also trying to practice hands so I added one in my design using the hand template. The picture reminded me of a fashion shot so thought I would add a fabulous beanie hat and stamped the yummy houndstooth pattern from the Design a Tweed stamp set, through the negative parts of the hat template.

Thanks for stopping by, I am currently busy looking for a new home, packing when I can and creating samples for our new release, next week, phew! 
I think all us artist must have a little bit of crazy!
Enjoy a wonderfully creative weekend!!!

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #42 ~ Wings Challenge

Good Morning, wow has it been two weeks already?...
There's so much going on behind the scenes I forget to add interesting posts to my blog, well at least my fortnightly challenges keep me active on here, we have a lovely theme challenge over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today...
It's all about wings, so I went for a special fairy she has a butterfly friend (obviously). I started by drawing my fairy using the curly fringe style from the mini profile templates and the winter fairy wingswith plain old pencil and drew her a hand too using mini poseable hand as her friend needed a perch.
I have stamped her features with the coordinating face stamp with either grey or black inks. The butterfly was created using the butterfly pieridae set, I masked the large wing before stamping the back wing, I just love how well this works :)
So, the whole thing was coloured using copic markers, yum It's been awhile since I've coloured anything quite so big, I cut an A4 to 6", I had done the whole sheet but didn't like the arm placement so trimmed the bottom off, as you do.
I was trying to achieve a soft nearly watercolour look with my copic colour choices, it was quite a challenge. Her wing didn't come out as I had imagined and I ended up covering the whole thing in wink of stella glitter.
I then decided to make this a tri fold card and finished off with an adorable little sentiment from the whimsical woodland set 1(fox)

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #41 ~ Sketch Challenge

Good Morning, wow September already...
Today we have a new sketch challenge over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog...
I used quite a few stamps on my christmas card, 
I went for a fun colour combo for the snowflake background, 
Then I just had to stamp my all time favourite deer and although the sentiment is a little lost I think it still kinda works... I might just need some bright pink embossing powder.
I finished off my card with a little hint of houndstooth and a little sparkle on the antlers not that the camera picks it up. It's nearly a one layer card, certainly flat enough.

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #40 ~ Picture Inspiration

Good Morning...

Today, I have a card to share that I made for the current challenge over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog...
It's a picture inspiration and just perfect with our last release... 
I created a small layered card, I am enjoying this small card size, I have a theory that these little ones would most likely be placed right at the front of all the other cards on the mantle or window sill... lol that's my reasoning.
For my background, it was a simple heat embossing through the polka dot stencil, it's much quicker than stamping the rows of polka dots, not that I mind that really.
The mini shroom scene inspired from the picture was a bit of stamping and masking using the Whimsical woodland set 4 and Whimsical Woodland set 3.
I finished off my card with a little gold ink on the smile word substrate. If you ever want a gorgeous yummy shimmery gold ink then I highly recommend this liquid metal stuff... yum.

I actually combined a few other challenges on my mini card...

Penny black ~ Anything Goes
Seize the Birthday ~ Anything Goes
