Be At Home! Wendy Vecchi Kits for Art

Hello!

Wanted to do some crafting but not a lot of thinking.  So off to my stash I went looking for something to do.  Well, I found it and it was a good one.  I had purchased a Wendy Vecchi Kits for Art project and it has been sitting on a shelf for almost year now.  So out it came and to the craft desk it went.  I have to say it was a very enjoyable project.  She provided clear instructions and with my recent crazed purchase of several of her stamp sets I did have most of the ones she used in this kit. 

I must say I love her products! They are work so well with each other and can be used to create beautiful projects.

This one was 'Be At Home' and it included some of her wonderful embellishments.  All of her art parts are so versatile.   They can be inked, painted and stained.

So here is my finished project....




I love this little resin bottle and the way the stem fits down inside it.  You can color it just about any color you like using alcohol inks.


This would make a cool wall hanging or could be used on the front of an album.  Finished size is approximately 7 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches. 

I would highly recommend any of Wendy's kits! Visit Wendy's blog here!

Happy Paper Cutting!

Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2013 - July

Hello!

Been sick for a while but couldn't pass up a chance to do the Tim Holtz tag.  He showed us another incredible technique which I absolutely loved!  Visit his blog to see Tim in action! 

So here is my July Tag.....


This version of Time Traveler stamp was something I just could not pass up trying.  I so love how this turned out! To view the Ranger Ink instructions for doing this click here!


I first stamped the USA on the tag then stamped it again on a piece of watercolor paper cut out the letters and adhered to the tag for some extra dimension.


Added some glitter to give the tag that 4th of July sparkle.
