Animal Magic 2 – Collage Card

Hi everyone

Today I have another card to share that I would like to enter into the Craft Barn Challenge. This week’s theme is Animal(s)
I do enjoy these challenges.  They are lots of fun.

Here is my card which is very similar in style to the card I made here.
I didn’t intend making two cards for the challenge but I had so much fun with the first card that this one just evolved!!  I do love these little elephants.  The baby one is so cute.

Animal Magic – Collage Card

Hi everyone

I hope your weekend is going well.

I didn’t think I would be back in blog land until Monday but I had a few hours to spare this afternoon so I escaped into my craft room.  It’s very quiet in there at the moment.  My boogie box was the third thing to pack up last week.  My new heat gun arrived so I am happy again and Freddie has bought me a new CD player.  That should arrive this week….hopefully.  An early Christmas present!

Anyway the reason for this post is to share a card I made for the Craft Barn Challenge.  This weeks theme is “Animal(s)”.

I created a background just by splodging some diluted Distress Ink onto my base layer and then stamped the crackle pattern.
I then stamped, colored and cut out all of the images and collaged them onto the base layer.
I used a piece of old atlas paper to add a bit of interest.

Halloween Tag – Pumpkin Party

Morning everyone

I hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend.

The new Halloween Stamps from Chocolate Baroque have been released and they are fabulous.

Today I wanted to share a tag I made using the “Put A Spell On You” set.

All this tag needs is a piece of ribbon.

Florence Langley Halloween Tags 15 018A2wm
To make this tag

Stamp one of the rows of pumpkins and mask the image.
Stamp the second row of pumpkin and mask the image.
Stamp the sparky flourishes.
Remove the masks and color the images.
I used water color crayons.
Replace the masks over the colored pumpkins.
Color the tag with Distress Inks
I used:
Seedless Preserve, Dusty Concord, Chipped Sapphire and  Black
Take a damp paint brush and a piece of kitchen paper and remove the color from the circles on the flourishes.
Take a stencil and create the patter around the edge.
Stamp the spiders and the sentiment.
Remove the masks from the pumpkins.
Apply one to two coats of spray fixative.
Apply a coat of Mod Podge or Gel Medium.
This fixes the ink and intensifies the color.
These are the true colors!!

That’s all from me today.
I will see you next week.
Have a lovely weekend.
Take care,
