This weeks theme was a great opportunity for Tracy to use the Timely Pocket Watch Art Parts, coloured with Distress Stain aged mahogany and stamped with the stripes from Art Fit For A Queen using StazOn black ink. Paper from BoBunny Timepiece Collection was added to the inside of the pocket watch with a little dimension added from the Weathered Clock die. Throw in a little Clear Rock Candy for texture and Gadget Gears for a little more interest. The handsome gent in the middle is from Studio 490 So Serious, coupled with embellishments in the form of a Timepiece and Game Spinners.Dan's framed art piece may be many things, but it's certainly not a card! Although the photo doesn't really show it too well, there is a lot of depth to his piece, which is why he used a shadow frame for it. Products he used include the Artful Artifacts and Numero stamp sets, and Claudine Hellmuth acrylic paints.
Sarah altered an electrical socket box with Alcohol Ink to create a Metal Shrine of Love for Valentine's Day! Her painted Grungepaper roses are made with the Tattered Florals Die and stamped with Stuff to Say. Ruler Ribbon, Charm Clip and Trinket Pin touches of Idea-ology finish her alternative idea to a card!
Now that the "holidays" are over.....it's time to be looking ahead to the next one! "HEART" day! She pulled out an old used canvas, applied some Black Gesso, misted on some Aged Mahogany Distress Reinker, when dry she dabbed on some Aged Mahogany Distress Stickles. Using the left over's from last week she diecut a heart and misted it with Aged Mahogany Distress Reinker and inked edges with Vintage Photo. Do you see the District Market Tissue Wrap.........mmmmm love that stuff!
Candy decided to do something outside of her comfort zone by using a White Opaque Pen to highlight the art work on her project. This colorful "visionary" #8 Tag features various Distress Ink Colors and is stamped with images from Wendy Vecchi's An Eye For Art and Art Parts Stamp sets.
Ellen decided to go mini this week and made at ATC (Artist Trading Card). She used alcohol inks on every element including Ranger Metal Foil Tape embossed with a texture fade folder, Tim Holtz' fragments, and various idea-ology!
Nancy loves this Maya Road ATC Stand so she used that to interpret this week's theme. The perfect size for small photos and desktop, this adorable mini stand is filled with chipboard hearts, flowers and family photos.
Terry decided to go for Valentines Day and altered an "old" egg-shaped chocolate box. She used Gesso on the outside and lots of Red tinted Distress inks. She worked with a little bit of The Tim, a little bit of The Wendy and a lot of herself (LOL) The hearts are worked on with lots of Rock Candy Crackle Paint and Crackle Distress Paint. On top she placed a Just Fly Butterfly.
Linda's tag uses the tissue paper technique from Tim Holtz's tag #12 from this year's Christmas tags. It was stamped with Fabulous Flourishes and tissue paper was stamped with the Sheet Music stamp. Picket Fence Distress Stain and Rock Candy Distress Stickles were also used on the tag. The oval double rosette was cut from crinoline with the Mini Rosette die and the bottom strip was cut with the Vintage Lace die.
I started off with a block of wood to make this chunky ATC. I had a wonderful time playing with the Graphic 45 Le Cirque 8X8 papers and Le Cirque stamps. I also used Tim's On The Edge Pennant die and my ProMarkers.
