Doctor Who inspired mixed media canvas

Hello, dear crafters! It is Victoria on the blog today. This month theme is Spring, it is a great time for new beginning and discovery. And for me spring and especially April is always connected with International Day of Human Space Flight. I absolutely love space theme and this time I wanted to make a canvas inspired by the Doctor Who show.

1. I started with making galaxy background, working on a 20*20 cm piece of watercolor paper. I went wet-on-wet, using few shades of pink, blue, purple and black sprays and watercolor, starting from the lightest color. For better blending you should let it air-dry, thus the colors bleed into each other.
2. When the paper dried, I made lots of small splashes of white acrylic paint for the brightest stars and white pearl spray for more subtle, but shiny from another angle look.
3. I used snow stamp from Let It Snow (by Marion Emberson) - Clear Stamp Set, as it  reminds me of starry sky also. So I stamped it with Wow Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad …

Mixed Media Canvas by Susanne Rose

Hi my dear crafty friends!

Susanne writing today and I'd like to share a step by step tutorial for this glittery mixed media canvas. Nothing works better to add glitter to a project than WOW! Embossing Glitters! Let's start:

1. Prepare some paper flowers. I used Twinkling H2Os and Neocolor II watercolor crayons to color the flowers. Give them a shape while the paper is wet. Pick the Heart Throb Embossing Glitter to highlight the edges of each flower. Put them together with some flower stamen and add a little green into the middle.


2. I picked a chipboard butterfly from my stash and covered it with Golden Crackle Paste. You can use any other chipboard or wood piece you have on hand. After the paste was dry, I colored it with acrylic ink. It's important you use a waterproof paint in this step. Let the paint dry.


3. Add a layer of black gesso (black paint will also work fine) and wipe it away with baby wipes immediately.

4. Add a layer, or two, of Clear Gloss Ul…

Spring Has Sprung!

Hi everyone, I hope you have all been getting inspired by all the beautiful makes on the blog this month. As the weather is getting better I thought I would create a fresh, modern looking card for you.

1 Take a 17.5 X 12.5cm square white card blank and die-cut a circle through the front towards the top. Hand draw orange lines around the outside edges.

2 Stamp the Tropical stamp on vellum with a clear embossing pad and sprinkle with Opaque Bright White embossing powder. Tap off the excess and melt with a heat tool.

3 Stamp a sentiment in blue ink,  sprinkle with Midnight Dream embossing powder and melt as before. Cut into two pennants and attach to the left hand side of the circular aperture.



4 Attach the vellum behind the aperture with foam pads. Stamp flowers from the Hey Little Flower stamp set in three pretty colours and emboss with different powders. Layer up some of the flowers with foam pads.
5 Attach two flowers above the sentiment with foam pads. Glue twine to the backs of the othe…

JUST TO SAY...DOUBLE EMBOSSING

Hi everyone! Martha Lucia here hosting with you new inspiration. Today I want to share a card using the Double Embossing Technique and I have step by step of this card to share with you.


Here is how I created this card:
1. Cut your Very Vanilla card base using a piece of card stock of 4-1/4"x 11" and make score in 5-1/2". 2. Cut a piece of Glossy paper of 3-3/4" x 5". 3. Ink the Glossy paper piece using the WOW Embossing Pad. Press the ink pad directly over the card stock to cover the whole surface. 4. Cover all the inked surface with WOW Gold Pearl Embossing Powder. 5. Melt the powder using the WOW Heat Tool.  6. Since this is translucent powder, you may need a second layer to have a uniform and complete covering. If this is necessary, just repeat steps 3, 4 and 5. 7. Take the WOW Secret Garden Stamp and ink it well with WOW Embossing Pad. 8. Stamp the inked WOW Secret Garden over the embossed piece with Gold Pearl. 9. Cover the stamped image with WOW Metalli…

Spring

Hello everybody, this is Laurence (laury55) to show you a card inspired by the current challenge. I glued scraps of different papers on my background and applied a light coat of gesso to unify them. When dried, I used a stencil with a leaf pattern and blue acrylic paint.


 I highlighted the leaves with WOW embossing pen and opaque bright white powder. I used a die cut with WOW Under the Sea Embossing glitter and embossed the sentiment with WOW ebony. I used square foam to add dimension to my card.
I hope you will be inspired and play along on our current challenge.

Nature's Abode - Altered Mixed Media Tin

Hey everyone! It's Fran here with today's WOW! inspiration and this month I have a cute altered tin lid to share with you.


I was inspired by the beautiful colours of Spring and the mix of rustic textures mixed with soft pastels and flowers.


I have used the Flights of Fancy leaves stamped onto acetate with WOW clear embossing ink then sprinkled the leaves with Under The Sea, Bluetiful, White Pearl and Metallic Copper powders. I then melted the powder to create a 3D warped effect, as the acetate distorts with the heat and sets into a realistic shape once cool.Stamping details have been added to the background paper using a stamp from the Sparkle & Shine with clear embossing ink and Opaque White powder.



For the "nest" I mixed Melt-It powder with Metallic Copper and Opaque White powder to create a beige colour and poured onto a heat resistant mat in a swirl. The little vellum butterfly has been coloured with an embossing pen and highlighted with Bluetiful embossing …
