Yesterday I had great fun creating this creepy CAS card in black, white and red :
I actually painted the heads with glow in the dark paint and so this is how the card looks when it’s darker (difficult to capture on photo though):
This is my entry for the following challenges:
- Heads: Stampotique
- Pointy hat: Scrolls Work
- Sentiment: Stampinback
Here are two ATCs that I haven’t shared on my blog yet:
For the 3 muses ‘Black, white and a dash of colour’:
For Out of a hat creations ‘Black, white and 1 other colour’:
- Playing cards, chess pieces: Stampinback
- Bingo & (part of the) sentiment: Stampers Anonymous
- Checkers floor: Stamp Francisco
Thanks for visiting!
Hurray, there were 5 Saturdays in June and so there’s an extra week in which the Less is More challenge is sponsored by Stampotique! The challenge this week: take the Less is more header as your inspiration. Here’s my take on the theme:
As you can see, I went with the colours black, white and gold, flourishes, musical notes and a script font for the sentiment.
- Musical notes: All night media
- Flourishes: Crafty Individuals
- Sentiment: Tim Holtz
This month, Art Journey challenges us to create zentangles. I’ve made two ATCs (once I got going, there was no stopping me!):
I’d also like to enter these into the ‘One layer’ challenge set by ATCs and cards with attitude.
- Butterflies: Lavinia
- Sentiment ‘Sometimes the heart…’ : Scrolls Work
- All other stamps: Art Journey
Soot stamping is such a great technique for creepy ATCs! I used it to create the following ATCs:
Traditional soot technique
For the above ATC I used real photo paper instead of glossy crafting paper. Photo paper is actually not suitable for this technique, for it crackles and rapidly gets burnt. But I like the effect in this particular ATC.
Reverse soot technique
I’d like to enter these ATCs to the following challenges:
- Trees with raven: Stampendous
- Graveyard and sentiments: Cherry Pie
Here’s the decorated envelope that will hold my “Wise words” ATCs destined to this month’s The Stamp Man’s ATC swap:
I guess it isn’t hard to recognise the quotes I used… they are all Tim Holtz and I adore every single one of them.
This is my entry for this week’s Theme Thursday challenge: B&W.
Again an ATC for the “squares” swap @ Creatief met Stempels.
When I think of squares, I think of chess and when I think of chess, I think of black and white… Coincidentally, B&W is also the current challenge @ The Three Muses.
