Monday Bee Crafty DT post - Every accomplishment

Hi everyone, it's Monday and time for me to share another one of my Bee Crafty DT projects with you all... and today I am using the awesome guitar as my focal point.  I wanted quite a bright card so went for orange and purple as my main colours.


Materials
What to do -
  • Cut mat and layers using black and white card.  Mat the largest white layer on to the largest black layer, and glue to the card blank.
  • Take the Distress Inks and dab some on a blending mat, spritz with water and drag the other white square of card through it.  Dry with a heat tool and repeat until you get the look you want.
  • Use the dots Dinkable to blend some Wilted Violet through at random places, and stamp the squiggly lines using Wilted Violet too.
  • Use Versafine ink to stamp the guitar in the centre of the card.  Mat this piece of card onto the remaining black layer, and attach to the card using foam pads.
  • On spare white card stamp the sentiment using Versafine ink, and chop it into separate words before matting on to black card.  Attach using foam pads.
That's my project complete for this week, as always please pop over to the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog to see what my lovely team mates have been making.

See you next week!

Monday Bee Crafty DT Post - Da Vinci samples

Hi everyone, for my Bee Crafty blog post this week I'm sharing the samples I have made for Bev's shows on Hochanda today... tune in at 10am and 2pm to see all the gorgeous Bee Crafty goodies available.

I've used one of the MDF tags and decorated it using Pentart products (gesso, structure paste, cracking paste primer, cracking paste, patina effect paints).  I stamped the image on to tissue paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then adhered it to the tag using Matt Mod Podge.  The cogs and keys are also available from Bee Crafty.  I've also used the Hearts Dinkable .


I created the background using Mermaid Lagoon & Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxides, and Dinkables Regular Dots & Sunset.  The stamps I have used from the Da Vinci range are the Vitruvian Man,Science of beauty, and Art is never finished.


I created a very simple background by stamping the Wings in various colours of Distress Oxide (Candied Apple, Salty Ocean, Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, & Twisted Citron).  I stamped Leonardo and the sentiment using Onyx Black Versafine ink.


I created a background using Brilliant Red Brusho, then blended some Black Soot Distress Ink through the Stars Dinkable.  I stamped Leonardo and the sentiment using Onyx Black Versafine ink.


I created the background using Distress Oxides (Faded Jeans, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, Broken China), and the Circles Dinkable.  I then stamped the Science of Beauty and Life & Rain using Onyx Black Versafine ink.  I added some highlights to the circles using a white gel pen.


I created the background using Distress Oxides (Wild Honey, Frayed Burlap, Gathered Twigs), then spritzed water through the Vitruvian Man stencil.  I blended some Frayed Burlap through the Distressed Harlequin Dinkable, and stamped both the image and sentiment using Gathered Twigs.


I created this entire card using Vintage Photo Distress Oxide.  Materials used include Vitruvian Man Inkable, Circle Lattice Dinkable, Sforza Horse, Science of Beauty and Art is never finished stamps.

If you pop over to the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog you'll see some fabulous creations by my lovely team mates.  I'll be back next Monday to share another project with you all.

Monday Bee Crafty DT post - Mixed media tag

Hi everyone, well this week I decided to try something different for my weekly Bee Crafty DT post and thought I'd give mixed media a go.    I've always loved seeing mixed media creations and have wanted to have a go for a long time, this is my first attempt...it's not perfect but I really enjoyed creating it and hopefully with practice I'll get much better.  I also need to say a huge thanks to 2 of my crafty friends for all their advice and inspiration - thanks Kasia Bigaj and Lynette Jasper!

Materials
What to do
  • I covered the tag in a layer of white gesso, and dried with my heat tool.
  • I then applied a thin layer of the cracking primer on a couple of areas, and again dried using my heat tool until it was still a little tacky.  To these areas I added a layer of cracking paste, thin in some areas and thicker in others, this is what determines whether you get large or small cracks.
  • I dried the cracking paste using my heat tool, then applied some of the grey DecoArt paint over the entire tag, dried using the heat tool, then used a damp baby wipe to wipe it off of the cracked areas.
  • Next I took the feather Dinkable and applied some structure paste through this using a palette knife, and dried this using my heat tool.
  • I spritzed on a little of both Dylusions colours, spritzed this with water then let it run down the tag a bit before drying.
  • I took 3 white roses, painted them with a little gesso and once dry spritzed them with the Dylusions sprays.  Once dry I rubbed some of the Lustre Luxe around the edges of the roses, and also the edges of the tag.  I added the roses to the tag using 3D glue.
  • I stamped the sentiment using Onyx Black Versafine ink, cut it in to separate pieces and blended some Black Soot Distress ink around the edges.  I also rubbed some Lustre Luxe around the edges and also over the cracked areas on the tag.  The sentiment was also added using 3D glue.
  • I finished by tying some organza ribbon through the top of the tag.

I'm going to be a busy lady!  Thanks for taking the time to read my blog, your comments are always so appreciated.  Please pop past the Buzzy goings on at Bee Crafty blog to check out what my teammates have been getting up to.
