Wednesday Stamper:Nest

Whew! at last some creative time! We just finished up our year of homeschool (yay!). Now hopefully I will get much more creative time :)

Anyway! This week at Wednesday Stamper the theme is "Nest." I broked out some stamps from I Brake For Stamps from the "For the Birds" sheet and made this ATC. I wish it would show up better in the scan but at the top and bottom I have gold leafing. It looks much better in real life :)

Theme Thursday-Numbers

This wonderful Zebra image really spoke to me today, so I incorporated him into today's Theme Thursday Challenge! The theme was numbers so I grabbed one of my most favorite background stamps ever-the Numbers Background from I Brake For Stamps (in the Stampinback line).

I stamped the Zebra after I created the Color Blocked background with Distress inks. I really wanted him to stand out so I outlined him in graphite pencil and smudged it a bit. I then masked him and stamped the numbers in Gesso. It needed a little more so I grabbed a number stencil and used a black Pitt Pen to stencil it on.

Grungy Monday 7!

This week's challenge is distress ink colorblocking! Stamps used are from I Brake For Stamps :)

The faces are from the Stampinback line and the text is from the Time To Stamp line.

Added a little semi-circle of Gesso, to connect it all together and add to the grunginess :)

Tag Tuesday-Blue and Green

My favorite colors! I love working with these colors! Stamps are from I Brake For Stamps!

The background consists of layers of old text with Gesso, along with Distress Stains and Distress inks. Needless to say my hands are pretty well inked and gessoed!

The flowers are from I Brake For Stamps also-they are Wild Orchid Crafts Flowers and are just gorgeous. I placed decorative brads in the center and used Rust Alcohol ink to give them a little color.
