Doodle Art

Hello xx

Is everyone ok? Have you been busy crafting? I know I have 😁
I'm up on the Bee Crafty blog today with something new for me... a Jigsaw puzzle!!
Had a lot of fun creating this sample for a recent Hochanda show , using stamps from my favourite ever Bee Crafty collection...Doodle Art 😘

Products used:
Doodle Art: Butterfly, Dragonfly
Distress Oxide 
Dinkable
Sparkle Pens



To begin I blended Distress Oxides randomly over the puzzle pieces, drying in between each layer of colour applied. 
I then blended the Oxides through the Honeycomb Dinkable.
The main images were stamped in Black Onyx Versafine and dried off thoroughly with my heat gun.
Some of the small embellishment stamps, from both sets, were stamped randomly all over the puzzle.
I used my sparkle pens to colour in all my images.
To complete I drew a wiggly frame around my puzzle then added random dots around the frame, and around some parts of the focal images.  

I hope you enjoyed my make today.  I'll definately be doing another puzzle again

Doodle Art MDF Journal sample

Morning xx

Following on from my Bee Crafty DT blog last week, here is my final sample, as promised.
Something a little new for me...an MDF journal!  using the fabulous Doodle Art collection of stamps and coordinating products.
Although somewhat apprehensive at the start, I soon got in to the flow of making this, and I loved every minute! Anything goes...let your creative juices flow lol

Products used:
Doodle Art stamp sets: Bee, Sunflower, Dragonfly, Butterfly, Girl
MDF Journal
Inkables
Dinkables
Versafine
Versmark
Clear embossing powder
Distress Oxide
Kuretake Clean Colour pens
Sparkle pen
Gilding Wax
Texture paste










I started the journal by applying texture paste, through various Dinkables, on some of the pages. I already had a rough idea of what images I was going to use on each page, so I used Dinkables I felt would coordinate with each design.

Once completely dry I blended Distress Oxides to each spread of pages, using a different colour combination on each. 

Having ensured everything was dry I blended more distress Oxides through various Dinkables, to add extra dimension to each page.

I then worked on 1 spread at a time,stamping the images in Black Versafine. 
Each spread was coloured in with a mixture of mediums, Kuretake Clean Colour pens, Alcohol Pens, Sparkle Pens, depending on the effect and colours I wanted to achieve. 

I added highlights of Gold or Silver Gilding Wax to the areas of raised texture paste, around the edges of the pages, and where I felt a hint of highlight would work. 

I also used a white gel pen, to add highlights as appropriate. 

Once dry, the rings were put through to complete the journal. 

I hope you enjoyed looking through today's post. I has soo much fun creating this MDF journal, and I hope there will be more in the future

This was masked off and I then stamped the bigger Unicorn, so it appeared behind the other

Time flies

Hello

I'm back on the Bee Crafty blog today with the fabulous Feather Wings. So beautiful and very versatile and can be used with so many other stamps. I've made two cards with a completely different look

Products used:
Pocket Watch 
Roman Numerals 
Time Flies
Dinkable
Distress Oxides 
Easy Frame: label 1 



I blended Distress Oxides through the Easy frame, blending it out bottom left
The Pocket Watch and Roman Numerals were stamped in the same Oxide
I stamped the Feather Wings in versafine 
Iced Spruce was randomly blended through the Metal Alpha Inkable 
To finish off I stamped the sentiment in the Versafine 

For my second make I used the Feather Wings and combined them with the versatile Style Wire Heart frames and Borders.

Also used :
Inspirational Words 1
Sparkle pens
Versafine




I created the background using Sparkle pens and water
I stamped the Heart frame in Versafine and then masked it off
The wings were also stamped in Versafine but I used first and second generation stamping to create depth and dimension 
The mask was removed before I stamped the sentiment and the Style Wire Borders in the black onyx versafine 
I drew my own wiggly frame around the card before adhering to card blank 

I love how versatile these beautiful wings are
Thankyou for popping by and I'll be back again soon

Dream of Dragons

Hi everyone xx

It's my turn over on the Bee Crafty blog today.
I couldn't resist making another card using the fabulous Dragon stamp set . This time I've gone for the little Dragon stamp as my focal point and can you guess what tv series my inspiration came from 😂

Also used:
Dragon sentiment stamp
Skylines Inkables
Distress Oxides
Shaving foam
Inks/paints/sprays




I created a background using one of my favourite techniques,  shaving foam with inks 😂😂 It's fun, creates unique backgrounds every time, and it smells lovely too lol.
Once dry I used Distress Oxides through my skyline Inkables.
I blended the same inks around the edges you draw your eye into the middle.
The Dragons were stamped in different coloured Distress Oxides.
To finish the sentiment was stamped in brown versafine 

Thankyou for stopping by and I'll be back again soon

Decision to try...

Good morning crafters xx

I'm back on the Bee Crafty blog today with a card using the fabulous Light Tomorrow ,  combined with the beautiful Feather Wings. What a fab combination...

Products used :
Light Tomorrow stamp set
Feather Wings
Cogs stamp set
Decision to try stamp set
Inks
Shaving foam
Silver Gilding Wax
Black onyx versafine
White and black pens


To begin I made a background using inks and shaving foam! I love this technique as every one comes out different.  And they smell yummy to 😂 
I set this to one side until dry
On a seperate piece of card I stamped the Light Bulb in Smokey Grey versafine then coloured it in with a clear Sparkle Pen..just to add a hint of shimmer 
I applied silver Gilding Wax to the top of the bulb, then once dry I cut it out
On the dry foam background I randomly stamped around the edges with the texture stamp and, using the cut out Bulb as a guide, I stamped the Feather Wings, and various cogs, so they came out from behind it
The sentiment was stamped in the Versafine and then I adhered the cut out Bulb in place
This was adhered to card blank then I used a black pen to frame it

I love the combination of these stamp sets..gives a funky and steam punk look to your makes

I'll be back again soon

I am the Dragon

Hello crafters xx

I'm on the Bee Crafty blog today with a spread from my Art Journal using the absolutely fabulous Dragon stamp 😊 How awesome is this image. I also combined it with the amazing Dragon Eye
I'm loving using my Art Journal. ..it allows so much freedom in my creativity.

Also used:
Script stamp
Inks
Dinkables
Versafine
Distress Oxides
Glossy Accents




I prepped my pages with white Gesso before creating a "smooshed" background with my inks. (You can create same effect with Distress inks,  Oxides or other water based ink pads).
I randomly stamped the script and the scales stamps over the pages. To get a more random effect I like to hold the stamp in the palm of my hand.
I blended Black Soot Distress Oxide through the brick wall Dinkable.
On seperate card I stamped the Dragon and Eye in Green Distress Oxides,  spritzing with a little water to allow colours to me slightly. 
I cut these out then added glossy accents on the centres of the eyes and allowed them to dry.
Using the cut out Dragon as I guide I blended through the Feathers Dinkable with Distress Oxides, to create the effect of fire coming from the Dragons mouth.
Once my background and Dragon was dry I adhered them to the spread.
I stamped the sentiment on white card, cut through out and adhered them.
To finish I drew a wiggly frame around the edges. 

I hope you enjoyed today's post and I'll be back again soon
