EP Tag *Flying Unicorn*

So, I'm a little new to tags. I tried. Papers from Apothecary Emporium by Echo Park, available at Flying Unicorn.

The steampunk boot is a digi from Beyond the Fringe Crafts. The gear is by LYB. The border punch is Fiskars.

I embossed the orange cardstock in the Cuttlebug, sanded with TH tool, brushed over with black ink, brushed over with Versamark, embossed with sparkly gold. Definitely want to try this again!

Lighthouse- Altered Art

This was published in the September issue of Enchanting Creations Magazine.

I found this plain wood box at a yard sale for 50 cents and painted it white. The background paper is from Tahiti Beach by DCWV.

Stamp by Inkadinkado. Colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with mineral spirits. Since this piece will be displayed in the bathroom, I sprayed with adhesive and then covered with mod podge. Love the texture!

PSX Pansies *Flying Unicorn*

Papers from Oct 31st by FP, available at Flying Unicorn. I fingered through my ENTIRE paper collection twice before I got the idea to check my Halloween papers. Finding the right purple isn't easy! But, there it was... still in the box from Flying Unicorn. Aren't they perfect?!

This beautiful stamp is by PSX, which I scored at a yard sale for a dollar or two. Colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with OMS. Machine stitched a border.

I love chalk. I often use it to give highlights on the edges of the stamped image. Here, I used a blend of green and yellow sparkly chalk.

These mini roses are also available at Flying Unicorn. They're such a perfect size for cards!

Border punch by MS. The ribbon is from HL, I think. The brad is Imaginisce, I think... old.

Christmas Cards- L'il Snowman

To mat or not to mat.

Papers from Hot Chocolate by Fancy Pants. Followed a sketch by Mojo Monday. I did not mat the square elements but I did use a brown marker outlining.

Stamp by Stampendous. Colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with OMS. Accented with chalk and stickles.

Here, I matted the square pieces. What do you think of the difference?

This stamp is also by Stampendous.
