3 Words: Little Black Dress

April 23rd 2017

"Miss Dee" would have to be one of my most favourite characters from Vera Lane Studio!!! she can be creepy and dark or as you can see today she is "Elegant" in fact "E is for Elegant" - which is the current challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Blog!!!!

Page background was gessoed first and then I used red & black ink sprays to make "dribbles" down the page. I added lace & braid and then secured t all with my sewing machine. Miss Dee was coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut - notice I added some ruby earrings LOL!!! I stamped the "3 words: little black dress" with black ink and some alphabet stamps I found in my stash! I am really happy with how this page came out and Miss Dee has been waiting for a special occasion to come out and the new "Elegant" challenge was the perfect reason to get dressed up!

Tall Town.......

April 22nd 2017
A new "Tall Town" set of digis was released at the start of the week by Janet at Vera Lane Studio!

I made very long bookmarks!! For the background I used a brayer and acrylic paint on cardstock and cut to size and mounted on tan coloured card. Tall houses were coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut. Wording digis also by Vera Lane Studio were printed on kraft cloured paper and adhered to the tops of the bookmarks along with some muslin cloth scraps. To finish off I added some string to punched holes at the top of each.

These digis mix and match perfectly with all the other quirky and fun characters available at Vera Lane Studio!!

MHK Designs...more Monthly Challenge Inspiration....

April 20th 2017
Sharing another creation I made as Guest Designer for the current monthly inspiration challenge at the MHK Blog! I've used digis from the "Butterfly Wisdom" Set and a strip of digi patterned paper from the "Worn & Weathered Pink" paper set all available at Mynn's Etsy Store!

As you can see I've worked in my black paged journal, used texture paste/stencil and pink ink spray on the background along with a strip of patterned paper, some little heart & swirl stickers from a 3d pack I have and scrap of muslin cloth. Butterfly digis and the wording from the digi set were printed onto a piece of paper I had also printed from the Worn & Weathered paper set so the background is patterned and soft.

I love how this turned out - nice and soft but still textured and also inspired by the inspiration photo for the month! Hope you can join in!

Curioser and Curioser...

April 18th 2017
A Gecko Galz creation using a digi from the "Mad Hatter's Stamp Set"!

I am entering this at the Gecko Galz Blog for their April "Alice's Tea Party" Customer Challenge. It is also entered at the Gecko Galz Facebook Group for the April "Curioser and Curioser" Challenge!

Index card background was done with the card and my gelli plate - always love the effects the gelli plate gives! Image printed on card and coloured with watercolours and fussy cut. I added a corner charm, muslin cloth, tiny paper doiley, braid and the "hear ye" lettering! Always fun to create an "Alice" themed item!

A Spring in My Step.....

April 17th 2017
Another Vera Lane Studio bunny from the "Two Hares Digi Stamp Set" (showed the other bunny on my blog on Friday). The little Easter Bonnet was added to the digi - just love that VLS digis are in png format - so easy to mix and match the characters and accessories!

Journal page background was done with paint and Gelli Plate - love the colours and patterns and how this turned out! It's not Spring here in fact it's Autumn but this page makes it feel like Spring!

Digi stamp coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut - added to the page with some raffia bits and paper flowers. Wording was computer generated and printed on kraft coloured paper.

Are you a member of the Vera Lane Studio Facebook Group? We always have lots of creation sharing and every month there is a themed ATC Trade - a great way to receive art from all over the world and get inspiration from what you receive!
