The Crazy Coven


Well, I'm not sure this Crazy Coven Convoy  would be good to hanging with on Halloween night!  It seems they all look terrified.  Can you believe I made this 6 months ago!  This canvas is in the current issue of Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine showing off a frightful scene.

Check it out in detail.

I wrapped the canvas and stamped it with the Apothecary stamp set.


Each terrified bird is bold with watercolored distressed inks.


I love the Happy Halloween banner is a great fit on the top.


BOO


The black soot painted rickety house gets a coat of textured paste and the bricked stencil.


WOO...WOO...


I know they are scared!


So scared they are passing out...


Pumpkin patches and candy corn fields.


I love the textured background all in haunted Halloween sades of green, purple and black using distress stains.


I think they are worried!


Add a little distress glitter to each witches hat.


I can never have too many spooky things to decorate my house!


Thank you to Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine for publishing my project at my favorite time of year!  
I hope you aren't as scared at these Crazy Chicken's!  I can call them that...right!

Liberty

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…
