Sea Scapes

I wanted to share a small home decor project I made with a couple of the Technique Junkies June release stamps. If you've followed my blog for some time, you'll know I LOVE anything that speaks of the Ocean. 

I made this little wall hanging for my Sea themed Bedroom.

I started by applying Gesso to an 8x8" Canvas

Then I sprayed with Prima and Tattered Angels Spray to get the colour variations

I stamped the Swirl Turtle  in Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink and the sentiment in Early Espresso ink.

I adhered the designer paper to the canvas with some strong adhesive.

I took the Messy Diamond Grid Stencil and applied some texture paste. Once that was dry, I spraed it again with the sprays. I added this cool Compass Corner Die from Impression Obsession

Lastly, I used some of that hempy looking thing a ma jig stuff in the bottom corner (yep, I don't know the name lol) to mount my shells and embellishments on. A quick and fun Decoration!!!!

Hope you like~

Technique Junkies Stamps June Release

Welcome to the TJ June New Release Hop!

I have a few shares for you from this fabulous release.

How sweet is this Hummingbird image? Wayyyy sweet! I coloured it with my Zig Clean Brush Markers. I just love the vibrancy!

To make the background I used this awesome City Windows Stencil by a colorful life.

I layed the stencil on my background cardstock. Using a foam brush, I dabbed white glue through. I let it sit a few minutes to tack up, then I used Creative Expressions Gilding FLakes. 

The Photograph really doesn't do it much justice. In real life it's super sparkly!

I also love this sweet Turtle Image

I also created the background for this image using 

These are amazing to work with!!!!

The stamps I used are:

Buoy Shells (you have to really look to see it in the background)

My last share is this shaker card I made using the following stamps:

To make the background, I used a combination of the following Oxide Inks

I stamped Buoy Shells in Versamark and embossed in white embossing powder.

I used some pretty Designer Paper as a background in the Shaker Window

Finished up with some Prima Glass glitter.

Make sure you visit all the blogs to see all the great creations 

Enjoy the hop and don't forget that the New Release Stamps are discounted for a period of time!!!!

Impression Obsession Thursday Designer Challenge Friendly Florals

Good Morning!

Hope you've had a great week thus far!

Today, our DT challenge is Friendly Florals

I had a lot of fun creating this little mouse in a flower card

What did I use?

The leaves from the Hydrangea Die

I used my Prism Pencils to colour this image. I like to use them when I want lots of colour but without quite as much saturation as when I used Copics.

The Designer Paper is from Prima-Rose Quartz Collection

Here's who's playing on the DT this week:
