A Winged Madame and Her Key

A No. 8 Tag featuring "Madame Dragonfly", some butterflies and a Celtic Key.  Every time I stamp Madame Dragonfly, I highlight a different element in her hair.  She fits perfectly in the width of this tag. I colored in the sunflower on the left side with a bright yellow, adding orange in the center with Inktense Colored Pencils. I stamped 2 butterflies with Black StazOn onto the same blue, textured paper as the background and cut them out.  I then coated them with glitter glue, the bottom with a dark blue glitter glue and the top one with a pearl, iridescent glue.  In the center of the butterfly is the Celtic Key Rubber Stamp on white shrink plastic. I designed the Madame Dragonfly rubber stamp myself.  All of the elements in the hair were selected and strategically placed to create a whimsical, half fantasy, half real looking model.  I didn't want her to have too brooding of a look, so I gave her a partial smile, like she knows a secret an

Vintage Art Print Scrapbook Page

  I found this vintage art print, "A La Ville De Saint Denis" and printed it with an inkjet onto a 4" x 6" photo paper.  I then stamped along the edges with one of our Vector Flourishes Rubber Stamps in Memento's 'Pear Tart' dye ink.  Also, Sephia ink was daubed along the edges, too.  At the top of the page, I created the cameo with 2 stamps from our Create a Cameo Rubber Stamp set.  Glossy Accents added over the surface gives it a cabochon, domed look.  A moss green 1/8" velvet ribbon is placed above the cameo. Our Ville De Saint Denis Rubber Stamp goes with the theme perfectly, here it is stamped (above photo) in a chalk (Versa Magic) ink onto black paper. Along the side of the 4 1/2" wide, green center piece, I stamped our Anemone Print Background Rubber Stamp onto white tissue paper.  The entire 12 x 12 page is a bone colored textured paper. What I love about this project: A scrapbook page provides a large canv

For the love of Teddy Bears

Who doesn't love a teddy bear? This A2 landscape card was created by stamping the bear with black Staz On ink onto kraft colored paper.  Derwent's Inktense pencils were used to color in this cute guy.  For the background, instead of using a paintbrush or sponge, I sprayed Ranger's Walnut ink onto the white paper.   Teddy Bear Love Rubber Stamp sku 4x505147   The fuchsia silk flowers are held in place by a hexagon shaped fastener with the word, 'Darling.'  Pink and white bakery twine runs along the width of the card and in the flower pin. In additional to the " un bébé nouveau" cards (new baby), this teddy bear stamp can be used for any friend, young or old that needs a hug or smile!  What I love about this project:  Derwent's Inktense pencils are amazing to work with. Once you add a bit of water to the paper, the vibrancy of the ink comes alive.  It's fun to color in stamped images using Copics, but the pencils allow for
