Flower Power

 SSS Monday Challenge

 SSS Monday Challenge


Hi you all it's time again for another Monday challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
This week the theme is: Flower Power. In this context I made a powerful flower for a friend.



As I'm allways looking for something different, this time I wanted to use something that was meant for something else and then re use it. For this I chose the Tim Holtz Sizzix Die FANCIFUL FLIGHT Bigz Butterfly Alterations. It is meant to create a butterfly with it and I used the wings for my flower.



For the leaves (wings) I used Ecoline Liquid watercolours. Light Yellow, Light Green, Light Orange, Sky, Carmine in combination with Dylusions inkspay Bubble Gum Pink Shimmer. For the spatters on the leaves I used Dylusions inkspray Black Marble.
The frame on top of the leaves were painted with black gesso.

Here you can see a little bit of work in progress:






I wanted to create a bright background and it turned into something grunchy. At first I used Distress Oxide Twisted Citron and Peeled Paint. I dropped a little Infusions Sunset Beach and Slime on that. When it was all dry I put Distress Oxide Walnut Stain all over it and covered the edges with Hickory smoke. That all gave it that grunchy look.



For the stamping I used Heidi Swapp Magnolia Jane Clear Stamps. For the embossing of the words 'Special' and 'Unique' I used embossing powder from Ranger, Orange and Red Geranium.



I hope you all enjoyed my blog about how it's made and hope to see you next time!

Let's Doodle!


It's already the third week that I'm making a project for the Monday Challenge as a guest designer in April. And this time we are doodling all the way. To stay in my range of Jane Davenport stamps, I selected the 'Single Face' and flowers from the 'Mixed Media-2'

























The face is a big stamp, so I used A4-paper. I took some pictures from the building up of her face. To make sure her face is as vivid as can be I used the Tim Holz stamp platform. You can stamp several times and your stamp wil allways be at the same place. The flowers were done manually. Beware, the platform comes with 2 magnets and you will need 4 to make sure your paper stays in place. Especially when you use Stazon ink, as I do.




For the background of the flowers I used Distress Oxide (Abandoned Coral, Peacock Feathers and Spiced Marmelade) As you can see I put them all together to form her hair. On top of this there's some Infusions (A Bit Jaded). You can spray some water over it all to let all the colours blend a little bit. I wanted it to blend just a little bit, so the big dots would still be visible.

After this I filled the rest of the background with Distress Oxide (Twisted Citron on the top  and Faded Jeans at the bottom)


























The flowers were doodled by using a white gel pen.


























Her face was coloured with Distress Oxide, Walnut Stains and a lot of water. For her cheeks, lips and eyelids also Distress Oxide, Abandoned Coral mixed with a little bit of water.

























To create my own background letter stamp I used the Type Lower Cling Foam Stamps from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology with Distress Oxide, Walnut Stains.


























At the edged I doodled the stitching. And for the background the Kaisercraft Gritty Texture stamp was used, all over.


I hope this was useful for you all and I hope to see you again!

Greetings Paula

Mythology Inspired By A Story

 Designer Spotlight
 Simon Says Stamp Shop


 SSS Monday Challenge

Red Riding Hood


And again it's a Monday Challenge. This time it's all about 'Mythology inspired by a story'.
I let myself be inspired by Red Riding Hood. I just love the red cape 😉
The base for this project was a stamp from Jane Davenport. The faces in her stamps are beautiful.
And what I like about it, is that you can put your own creativity and drawingskills in it.
At first I used an eye from the Jane Davenport Mix and Match Eyes Nose and Mouth. I used a Tombow Mono Drawing Pen to draw her face, hair and cape.






















For the background I used Distress Oxide, Faded Jeans and Cracked Pistachio, and sprayed some water on it. I made a stencil out of a Tim Holtz Sizzix Small Tattered Florals Thinlits Die and put the flowers in the corner. The colour is Walnut Stains from Distress Oxide. 



























To create the fire red hood I blended some colours. Distress Ink Fired Brick and Dylusions Bubblegum Pink Shimmer. I used this same blend with a lot of water for her face. For her lips it was just the Pink Shimmer with a little bit of water.



























Her hair is a combination of Distress Oxide Walnut Stains with water, Distress Crayon Squeezed Lemonade, Distress Crayon Black Soot, and a Glass Marker from Arteza Gold.
I must say I just love to work with the Distress Crayon Black Soot. I use it to create shadow of just a grunch effect at the edges.























The texture on her right side and a little bit in the left corner at the bottom was made with a 

Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Feather. I blended the texture paste with Infusions In the Navy Colored Stain. On top of it there's some Nuvo Mousse Gunmetal Grey to give it a little shine 

When you look closely I gave the background a little effect with a Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Dotted.



I hope it gives you inspiration for your own projects. And hope to see you next time!
