Good Morning,
Today is a bright sunny day here in Texas.  It is cold and windy, but the sun is shining.  All of you in the cold weather states - keep safe and warm.
This week I wanted to try something different so I made a tag.  The background is made using dye inks.  Stamped some dots with white acyrlic paint.  I stamped the sentiment that comes with MOMENTS - Take a moment, get lost in thought very lightly with a teal ink.  For something different to add a little more texture and dimension I stamped some diamonds with Versamark ink and embossed with a clear embossing powder.    Then I stamped the image - MOMENTS in black and colored with DYLUSION INKSTo finish off the image I added a little STICKLES on the hearts. 

The butterflies at the bottom of the tag is Washi Tape.  It was pink but after putting it down it absorbed some of the other colors which is better.  I was trying to capture some of the embossing in this picture so you can see the texture.

Thank you for stopping by and will see you next week!

Happy Friday,
Hope all of you have had a wonderful week and have a great weekend planned.  Today I would like to share a birthday card I made for my grandson using Me & My Lil' Buddy.  Don't they look happy and on their way to a party?  The image is colored with Copics and then I used some crackle paint to give him some scaly dimension.  This image comes with the sentiment "It's the little things that make a Friendship".

The paper is My Minds Eye from SCACD.  Susana has a lot of the paper pads on sale, so check them out.  The corner pieces are Dies by SCACD - Ornate Hinge with Kaisercraft Rhinestones to finish them off.
Thank you for stopping by and wishing you a fun filled weekend!

Good Morning,

This morning I woke up to candy, card, and a loving husband.  What could be better?

Today, I want to share this cute little page I did.  I really love doing mixed media - it is so free and so much fun.  The cute little images are from the ODDLY CURIOUSITES SET #3 and #4.   LOVES ME   (female) is from set #3 and THE SPOTLIGHT  (male) is from set #4.  I thought they were just perfect for Valentine's Day.  The sentiment "DO YOU BELIEVE IN LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT?  OR SHOULD I JUST WALK BY AGAIN? is the sentiment that comes with LOVES MEI just typed it to enlarge it for my page.
There were several CRAFTERS WORKSHOP STENCILS used including HARLEQUIN  and PEBBLES.   Other stamps used were STAMPOTIQUE - HANGING HEARTS  and DANIELS HEART - 6109 and LOCKHART STAMP - LOVE.  I used the hot glue technique at the bottom to try and make it look like grout with the stones.   Unfortunately, the picture does not doe this page justice as there is gloss and some glitz that it does not reveal.
Wishing you a a Happy Valentine's Day !!
