Curiosity Collage Box

img_8081

This curious collage box was so fun to make!  First I stamped tissue paper from Idea-ology with some wonderfully ghoulish stamps from Tim Holtz and Stampers Anonymous.  Using a collage medium, I applied various ephemera from Idea-ology of the same ghoulish nature.  When everything was dry, I applied various colors of Distress Crayon on and around the ephemera and let that set to dry.  The box is covered on all four sides and the bottom.

This was so much fun to make!

Hello Ranunculus!

fullsizerender-64

For the background I first applied some pink and purple alcohol inks to Yupo paper.  When it was dry, I stamped the ranunculus (Simon Says Stamp) with red Archival ink (Ranger).  I made the pink ranunculus by wiping off the red ink with a cloth before it dried.  I die cut the Hero arts “hello” from some foam, adhered it to the card and added some black enamel dots.

Card – Batty Charred Snow Globe

img_8057

For this card I used the Hero Arts snow globe die, cutting the card stock and 2 foam sheets for some depth. The bat was die cut with a Mover and Shaper die and he/she is flying through some charred birch trees and orange snow.  For the bat I used the Idea-ology glitter paper that I mounted on to a foam sheet. The birch trees were made with a new Stampers Anonymous birch tree stencil and some Distress texture paste that was heat embossed with Distress Black Soot powder. I stamped the lines on the base and then colored the base with Copic markers from the warm gray group. I tied the base with some twine from Idea-ology. I then applied Distress Rock Candy Stickles and when that was dry, I went over the surface with Vintage Photo and Black Soot Distress Inks.

Card – Halloween Is a Magical Season

 

Hero Arts released some wonderful products for Christmas which I had to appropriate for Halloween! Sizzix has a perfect Mover & Shaper die Bat which fit the theme and the card perfectly. I finished off the edges with some washi tape created by Tim Holtz for Idea-ology.
