Hi! Robots

Hi there,

I would like to show you this fun robot card over on the A Day for Daisies Blog:

  • color three of the fun A Day for Daisies Bot Two images with Derwent Inktense Pencils and a damp watercolor brush
  • use the Stampendous Tiny Alphabet stamp set, Versamark and WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder to add the sentiment 
  • stamp the Create a Smile Color your Polka background onto a stitched panel of watercolor paper with Versamark and heat-emboss it with Ranger Cement embossing powder
  • color the dots with the same colors of the Inktense Pencils used on the robots
  • adhere the panel to a light grey cardbase

Have a day for daisies.

Discover Life's Wonders Canvas - Video Tutorial

Hi there,

I have another Video Tutorial for you over on the STAMPlorations Blog:

  • cover a canvas with white tissue paper using Dina Wakley Gel Medium
  • apply white gesso on top
  • use Dylusions Paints (Vibrant Turquoise, London Blue) for a colorful background
  • use texture paste and a palette knife to create three flowers and their stems
  • add leaves using the ARTplorations Leaf Bliss Large stencil
  • stamp the sentiment with the help of the STAMPlorations Bold Sentiments: Discover set and Memento Luxe (Tuxedo Black)
  • fill in the letters with a black PITT Artist Pen
  • use the newsprint stamp from the STAMPlorations Mixed Media Grunge set and Memento Luxe (Wedding Dress) to add some more texture to the background
  • apply Distress Ink (Hickory Smoke) through the ARTplorations Weaving stencil and ink up the edges as well
  • color the flowers with Derwent Inktense Pencils, some water and a watercolor brush
  • add some shadows with the Stabilo All Pencil
  • use some black Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor to add some splatters to the canvas

I hope that you like my creation.
