Dia de los Muertos home decor

Hi everyone !

Even if I'm in Europe, I was very inspired by the Dia de los Muertos face  painting this year, enough to create a project. I use the cling stamp Free Spirit by Prima Marketing, Copic markers, K&Company paper and a Faber-Castell black pen.

Very different from the original look of the stamp !

In France, it's a day to remember the day and to bring flowers to the deads. It seems appropriate for me to create this with the flowers in her hair...

Wish you a good day filled with joyful memories of your missing ones.

Another way to stencil

Hello everybody !

Let's play with stencils and different mediums today ! First the layout...

If you know me a little, you have spotted the K&Company paper for the background...
Let's take a closer look :

What is this white pattern ? It's the bamboo stencil by Prima Marketing used with...white gel pen !
I just outline the pattern of the stencil with the pen and filled it with the same pen. OK, my Sakura white gel pen is dead. He was a good friend and I will miss him so much...

What else ?
Leaves stamp by Autumn Leaves with Colorbox ink, Mister Huey's turquoise ink spray, I Am Roses flowers and metal charms from Istanbul...

What about the layering papers ?
Scales stencil by Prima with medium gel and Miser Huey' ink, acrylic stamp By Prima Marketing with green paint and golden flakes, faded dots stencil by Tim Holtz with dark blue Colorbox ink, Inkadinkado stamp with Colorbox ink.

The title was print and fussy cut, and adhere with adhesive foam squares for the final touch.
The sketch #119 from Sketchabilities inspired me for the design of this layout.

Hope you like my different ways of using stencil in this layout.
Wishing a good day !

Almost steampunk birthday card

I made this card last month for a friend of mine who loves dragon. I couldn't resist to this cute little one by Sureya I found on deviantart. I really love this artist, and I have more coloring to come... But for now, let's take a look at Yuki and Danger :

You can maybe recognize a K&Company paper, DCWV adhesive Stack in brown, I Am Roses flowers and leaves, vintage photo distress ink by Tim Holtz, Copic markers, and free sentiment stamps from a UK card magazine.

I really love how it turns, especially the hair. I was going for a steampunk look, but finally end with a cute look...Never mind...

I wish you a good week and a lovely Monday !

Prima Marketing shabby layout

Hi !

Still writing from the mountain, where we had a great summery day yesterday, and snow this morning !

I have a shabby layout to share, made with mostly Prima Marketing products :

For once, you cannot find bright colors in this layout. The shabby style seems perfect for this lovely picture of my first newborn.
I used a 12x12 sheet of embossed chipboard (Prima), with papers (Fairy Belle collection), flowers and stamps (Prima), with gesso and pink paint, Vintega photo distress ink by Tim Holtz, leaves by I Am Roses, a pearled pin and laces by Maya Road. The title was cut with my Cricut.

You can see also metal embellishments from Istanbul and some pearl flourish by Want2Scrap. Take a good look at the embossed chipboard (above), I did highlighted the embossed pattern with a pink Copic marker.

Another close-up on the stamp work.

We just had a wonderful walk into the woods yesterday, gathering mushrooms with a beautiful and warm sun !
Stay put, I maybe will have snow fight pictures soon...

A layout for the CMS challenge #72

Another great color challenge today with Color-Me-Scrappy !

As the twist was to include some wood, I choose to have a wood background from the Miss Caroline collection by My Mind's Eye. In fact I use only items from this collection in my layout : paper, stickers, stamp (see the colored roses on the right corner of the pictures ?). I really love this collection, but my stash of it is shrinking...

I hope I gave you some inspiration to play in this new challenge. Don't hesitate to take a look at the DT's creations for some more and come play with us !
