Home Sweet Home

Hello there in the middle of the summer! 
Here we come with a brand new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
This week we'd like to see YOU'VE GOT THE EDGE!

As always you could be a random winner of a $50 voucher 
and spend it in Simon Says Stamp Store

My today's card is a Home Sweet Home card 
with edges made with Pipelines die which I thought would be perfect 
for a home/house theme card. 
Here below I wrote steps I took to make it. 

1. I took a watercolor paper, TH Mosaic stencil and Distress blue inks.
I colored the stencil with distress pads randomly and sprayed with water.
Then I placed the stencil onto the card leaving a negative pattern. 
I really love this technique and use it a lot making my backgrounds. 
Then I die cut the sentiment and placed underneath a paper 
colored with SSS Schoolhouse Red Ink. 

2. I die cut TH Sizzix Pipelines die from a heavy cardboard and applied a thin layer of gesso first and then gave the texture by touching the pieces with a brush and solid quantity of gesso. Left for drying. 

3. I blended the Distress Black Soot on the pieces and finished them with Nuvo Mousse to give this silver shiny effect. I placed all the pieces with Gel Medium. 

4. The houses were cut with Townscape On The Edge Bigz die
and colored with SSS Schoolhouse Red Ink. 
After that I covered them with layer of Crackle Texture Paste 
and then again with the red ink. 




Jest lato, jest słonecznie więc jest też kolorowo. 
Rzadko u mnie taka eksplozja kolorów ale i tak bywa.
Jako, że od dłuższego czasu również rzadko zdarza mi się 
używać jakichkolwiek papierów scrapowych i przeszłam na 
pasjonujące tworzenie własnych teł, 
ta burzliwie kolorowa kartka poleci na wyzwanie w 13arts: Tło

Tło z maski TCW Woven oraz tuszy Distress Inks.
Napis z rewelacyjnych naklejek Aura Rosa


Kurs na Miłość

Dzień dobry! Witajcie wakacyjnie. 
Dziś kartka ślubna w klimacie zdecydowanie morsko - żeglarskim. 
Jak wspomniałam niedawno, uwielbiam ten temat 
i jeszcze przez chwilę się u mnie poprzewija, 
korzystając bezkarnie z plażowo - morskiego sezonu :-)

Salvaged Boat

It's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
This week we want to challenge you to 
Which means we skip flat, square and rectangle projects and
spread our wings searching shapes, 3D projects, boxes, etc. 

As always you could be a winner of a $50 voucher and spend it
in the greatest Simon Says Stamp Store

I was thinking several days of what shapy I could make and my first idea 
was an exploding box but then a boat crossed my mind 
and I decided to challenge myself and make it for the first time. 
Since I just LOVE all the nautical projects, nothing could stop me :-)
Below the main picture you will see a step by step photos. Enjoy!

A year ago I brought this kind of sticks from my seaside holidays.
I knew they will be used for something one day. 
So I took three of them that I considered as a good shaped for a boat.
I painted them with White Gesso and Picket Fence Paint very slightly.
I only wanted to brighten them a little bit but not to cover them.  

I cut two pieces of sails from White Primed Canvas 
and made holes in the corners for the twine. 
I touched the Mosaic Stencil with 3 colors of Distress Inks 
and sprayed with water. I placed the wet stencil on each of the pieces 
and dried with a towel taking off the excesive moisture. 
Finally I decided to stamp a faux stitches instead of real stitching.

I took a piece of White Felt and cut out a number, colored it with the same Distress Inks and placed on the sail. 

Finally I added some sequins and passed twine through each hole. 
The last step was to glue all the pieces with a heat gun. 
I placed a name of my boat from Quote Chips and colored with Salty Ocean.
