CC2C#1 Butterflies

It's time to start working on our challenges with Compendium of Curiosities 2 over on Sudio L3 http://www.studiol3.blogspot.com/
Linda gave our first CC2C#1 challenge from page 66; creating our own custom stamps. Our sponsor, http://www.simonsaysstamp.com
I used the supplies required to enter this challenge along with several distress inks, stamps, two butterflies using custom stamp pads from Creative Chemistry 101, perfect pearls mist; heirloon gold and forever green and archival inks. All the supplies were applied to a time sheet paper that I made into a tag with Tim's bookplate and tag die.

Golden Trumpet



This set of images are perfect for Copic, brush and distress markers.
I inked the flower stamp with archival black ink and then used several colors of perfect pearls spray, distress ink, new distress markers and a background stamp on the tag.

12 Tags of 2012 ~ April Tag


I used a reflections stamp and texture fades embossing folder on the base of the tag like Tim used. The tag was distressed using a large variety of distress inks.
(Several were from his seasonal inks.)
 My sweet little blue bird and branch images was made with my Silhouette digital craft cutter.  
The teak wood "B" and metal word are from my stash of supplies. I used several colors of Tim's dabber paints on the little bird and distress powder on the branch.
The seam binding is from my vintage stash of supplies.

Easter Bunny

 Last week I viewed Tim showcasing his bunny tag using his cute little bunny die with his paper stash.

This is my version using my Silhouette digital craft cutter to cut the little bunny and bow with manila paper. After cutting the bunny, I took a pair of scissors to make it look like it had two ears. I used Espresso dabber on bunny and Raspberry and Sunburst Orange Dabber on the bow then added Frosted Lace Stickles for sparkle.
The little bunny with Easter egg is from Seasonal paper stash. I lighted the image to give a brighter look.
I used a variety of distress inks on my Kraft resist tag made with the Bookplate and tag die.
