Calaf and bling

Deco Art products used: Americana Acrylic GessoWeathered woodMatte Varnish,
Americana Acrylic paint in Lamp blackDazzling Metallic in Venetian GoldCraft Twinkle Crystal,

Digi Calaf by Rick St.dennis, coloured using Faber Castell Polychromos, Stickles and rhinestones.

Loads of bling and sparkle on this canvas, I don't use much of the bling normally, but thought to get nuts and get all the bling out.

I started by gessoing the canvas, next is a layer of Venetian Gold, let dry and apply Weathered wood, let dry again and add the black top layer.

When the crackeling is done and the paint is dry, add a layer of  matte varnish and let dry,  take a fan brush and apply a thin layer or Craft Twinkles.

Meanwhile colour the Calaf digi and cut it out, Add the stickles to the hat and clothes and let dry.

Glue all bling and feathers on the canvas and glue the digi to the canvas, next add some rhinestones to the colar and head band.

I also gave the guy  navel piercing,  :-)

Barbette - Crafting Vicky

If you have seen my latest posts you know that I sort have become hooked with mixed media.  Funny because I never wanted to have anything do to with that before... and look at me now... but I still do make cards and today that's what I'm sharing with you a sweet little card.

For this card I used the awesome Barbette she really made me think of spring!

I did a lot of layering but kept it fairly CAS because I just thought that paper was calling for it.

Here's a closer look at Barbette colored with my copics
I really long to see some butterfly in other things than die cuts :)  If you want to know how I made this go here.

Hope you like my inspiration. Check out all the other fabulous images in the Zibbet store or in the Etsy store!

Have a fabulous Friday!!!!

Hi everyone. It's Bonnie here today. I thought it was high time that I altered another paint brush. I haven't played with one in ages and had the perfect Rick St. Dennis image for the job. My paint brush was just a dollar one from Walmart...such an inelegant start but I blinged and sparkled it up plenty to make up for its humble beginnings.

I featured part of the Cat Glasses image from Rick's Zibbet shop, colouring her with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils. Cat was relieved of her beautiful top knot as I wanted the bristles to become her upswept hair. She was fussy cut and then matted in black. Grape Crush Stickles, a gorgeous mix of purple and turquoise glitter, was added to her glasses frames and Glossy Accents added to the lenses.

A palette knife was used to layer on pink paint mixed with embossing paste, adding lots of texture. While it was still wet, tiny glass beads were pushed into it to make it even more fancy-smancy. A wash of Hottie Patottie Hot Pink Starburst spray was layered over the top as well as matte medium to help keep the beads in place. Cat's necklace was created with flat pearls and a brad.

The bristles of the brush were sprayed with the same pink Starburst spray as Cat's collar. Tickled Pink Stickles were brushed over that with my finger to create shimmer and sparkle. Two layers of two toned patterned paper were cut along the pattern lines and layered over black cardstock which was then trimmed as a mat. Black Diamond Stickles was added to the lines where the papers overlapped. This piece was wrapped around the base of the bristles and adhered with wide scor tape. A length of washi tape was added to the metal ferrule and a length of metallic cording was used to tie the two patterns together. To complete her lovely outfit, purple gems and white pearls were adhered to the points of her crown and black pearls formed her buttons on the handle of the brush which became her upper body.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Cat and I appreciate your fine company. Be sure and check out Rick's Zibbet shop. There are many other of the 1100+ images there that would work beautifully for other altered paint brushes :) I would love to hear or see what ideas you have.

Hello there and happy monday! Rachel here with you to show off my latest card!
today I have used an absolutely gorgeous stamp from Rick St Dennis MFA to create a slightly glittery card! the stamp is called Unicorn 'Arco Iris' and is available from Rick's Zibbet store!
I absolutely adore unicorns and all things mythical and mystical, so when Rick Released her recently, I knew I just had to play! 

I spent several hours trying to do this stamp justice, with her fantastic mane, studded with flowers.

I hope you liked my card, and the image too!

I Need a Bigger Purse !

Today Im using a stamp that a lot of us gals could relate to its called I need a bigger Purse by Rick St Dennis MFA. Im not sure if Ill use this as a Mother's Day card or Birthday card yet.
To make this card I started with a pink base card. then matted in purple. I then used a piece of patterned paper that I had in my stash and embossed it. I added a pink doily from Kaiser Craft a little sentiment from Stampin up a glittery floor and a couple of gems. I coloured this image with copic markers and then cut her out and popped her up on the doily with foam tape.
The copic markers that I used are :
