First a tag with a shimmery H2O and watercolour background. The house is coloured with watercoloured. Added some die cut branches for added texture.

Ephemera........ our theme this week on Sunday Postcard Art. Used some reproduced bits of ephemera from a couple of partly used collage sheets.......think they were from Digital Collage Sheets.  Anyway arranged and collaged the pieces onto a background created with distress inks and mica sprays and then added a bit of gold embossing around the edges.

Background is done with a mixture of paint, stamping and embossing, then die cut a bird cage and bird (Tim Holtz dies) painted and inked them stuck them on and added some metal flower embellishments and a little wording.

A few samples......

.......I made for Sheena Douglass's show on Create and Craft on July 16th. According to the schedule I think the shows are going to be at 1pm and 7pm; they will be featuring some of Sheena's great stamps, Luminarte Primary Elements and some fab Pebeo Fantasy paints.

MDF plaque which was gessoed and then stamped text and crackle stamps, then the flowers were stamped, outlined with outliner and painted with Fantasy Paints.

Papier Mache frame decorated with the Fantasy Paints and embellished with flowers.  To do the frame the paints were just dropped onto surface and allowed to mingle,  For the flowers I stamped them ont acetate, outlined them and then painted; once the paint had dried I cut them out and glued them to the frame.
Tune in on Tuesday to see some more fab samples from the rest of the inkoids.
