Fun with mist

Good morning everyone,

It’s Friday and it’s my turn at the Crafter’s Companion blog post. I’m sharing with you Sheena Douglass’s newest release Paint Fusion set of stamps.


If you have never seen Sheena’s Youtube videos on how she paints her flowers, you need to see how talented this lady is!

I am full of awe at the artists who are able to draw stamps and paint – when all I do is just color in the images drawn by someone else and with easy to blend alcohol markers (not any paint mediums)

Well, I have no courage to try to recreating her painting masterpieces. *Whimp* – actually I did try and it came out as blobs of pathetic purple mess. So I stamped my flowers and leaves and sprayed painted them with a variety of glimmer mists instead. I did paint the background with gold acrylic paint – imagining the coarse brush strokes might add a contrast to the smooth shimmer of the spray. The flower stems were Flower Soft wires that I colored with Spectrum Noir markers (JG65).

If you do venture into the realm of painting a Sheena Douglass stamp, please share your work with us at the comments section or on my facebook page. I would LOVE to see it!

Have fun with your paints!


Stampendous Superbowl Giveaway

Hi all,

When everyone in my house is watching the Superbowl, the non sports fan (you’re truly) is left to my own devices … so I made a card that celebrates the girly girl in me that says no Superbowl for me!

On my card, I played with the new colored fragments – mixed it in shabby white embossing enamel and gold glitter and embossed it around the frame.

Color Fragments Are Here!

This exciting new product can be used with any adhesive as an embellishment or mixed with embossing powder, paint, clay, resin…the possibilities are limited only by your imagination! They are available in five yummy colors for Spring and you can see them all HERE.
