I have used various stencils and stamps on this project and here is also a little step-by-step tutorial for you:

I first gessoed the canvas and then applied 4 tones of acrylic paint onto it.

Next I took the “Baubles” 12×12 inch stencil and traced the pattern with a pencil onto a piece of white cardstock.

SONY DSC

After that I fussy cut the image using a precision knife. I only used a piece that would fit the size of my canvas.

SONY DSC

After that I misted the piece,

and then added some stamping.

I then added some black patterns for contrast onto the canvas background using the “Beaded curtain” 12×12 stencil.

SONY DSC

I also grabbed a piece of tissue paper and stamped some black butterflies onto it. I then used “Glue n´ Seal” to adhere them to my canvas later.

SONY DSC

I love in droplets, so I therefore had to add some also to this piece.

SONY DSC

After the droplets were dry, I adhered the fussy cut stencil image piece over the canvas with “Glue n´ Seal”.

Next I took the “Texturized” 12×12 inch stencil and applied some texture paste over the canvas mainly to the upper right corner.

SONY DSC

I then took some flower ribbon and cut suitable pieces out of it and adhered those over the texture pasted area.

SONY DSC

After the glue and paste had dried, I went and sprayed some yellow and pink spray ink over the paste and the ribbon.

SONY DSC

White the spray ink was drying, I took the piece fo white cardstock which I had used previously for the fussy cut stenciled image and stamped an image with black ink onto it. I then went along and used a butterfly die cut for cutting and

SONY DSC

then misted it with blue spray ink.

SONY DSC

I then glued it over the flowers with “Glue n´ Seal” and adhered a light bulb over it. The light bulb I treated with some gesso and glitter glue for additional interest and to alter it abit. After that I just hand drew a sentence on white paper, spray inked the words and glued them on their places. This is what my finished canvas looks like:

Hello again, Sanna here with a simple and easy card idea. I have used spray inks, a piece of white paper, some stamps (all by Viva Las VegaStamps) and stencils for these cards.

Here is how I created the cards:

I first took some black ink and stamped various stamp images randomly onto the paper.

Next I sprayed various spray ink colours over the inked images.

Then I applied some Distress ink thru the 6×6 inch “Deco Leaves” stencil onto my card bases.

SONY DSC

After that I just took my stamped, spray inked piece of paper and cut it into random sized strips. I didn´t measure them and cut pretty freely.

Then I just glued the pieced down onto the card bases, added a stamped sentiment, some black ink splatters and a ribbon for additional decoration and my cards were done.

Hope you like the idea!
Happy crafting,

Hello The Crafter’s Workshop and Viva Las VegaStamps Fans!!
So GLAD you stopped by to see my creation made using products from
these two amazing companies!

We Remember Canvas by Lynne Forsythe

I created a tutorial on how I made my canvas background for you viewing pleasure!
or it can also be viewed HERE!

We Remember Canvas by Lynne Forsythe

I began by applying a layer of Shimmering Matte Artist Acrylic Paint to a Canvas Panel. Then with stamps chosen from my Viva Las VegaStamps Pound O Rubber, I stamped randomly on the surface.

Next I applied various texture mediums through The Crafter’s Workshop
Coffee ~Splotches 6 x6 template and Today Framed Fragment with a palette knife.

I again randomly stamped my surface with Viva Las VegaStamps Pound O Rubber stamps and Archival Ink, embracing the imperfect stamping due to the texture.

I applied a layer of Shimmering Matte Artist Acrylic onto a piece of Kraft Cardstock then proceeded to stamp leaf images onto the surface,
which I in turn I cut out to accent my flower.

Cool kid

Hi there, Sanna here today! I´d like to share with you an easy and simple way I love to use stencils on my layouts. I love the effect you can create with them and I very often use a stencil with some modeling paste just as it is. I simply wipe the paste thru the stencil onto the background and use the stenciled details to enhance my photos. I then only add a few embellishments and/or some pieces of patterned paper, the title and some journaling and my layouts is done.

SONY DSC

On this layout I have used the “Geometric Art Layers” & the “Random Stars” stencils. I really like the contrast on the white paste against the dark background paper. Simple and effective :).

I hope you get inspired to try some modeling paste on your artworks! Have fun!

Together….You and Me!

Together...you and me by Lynne Forsythe

Today I am sharing a card I whipped up awhile back.

I created my background by applying
crackle embossing paste through
TCW428s ~ Mini Climbing Vine Reverse

miniclimbingvine

After the paste had dried….
I loosely applied Glimmer Mist, with a paintbrush
over the stenciled image.

Together...you and me by Lynne Forsythe

I, then, loosely traced around the stenciled/painted image.

To finish off my card,
I added flowers and butterflies over the stenciled Climbing Vine.

Thank you for stopping by to view my card.
Hope you enjoyed it!

Cards in fall colours

Hi there, today I´d like to share three fall cards in fall tones. I´ve also taken some step-by-step photos while creating the cards. Lets start with card no. 1.

sanna lippert

First I inked the white card base with Wild Honey Distress Ink and then added some water splatters onto the surface.

SONY DSC

I then took the “Vineyard” 12×12 inch stencil, placed in over the card and added some Barn Door and Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink thru the stencil onto the card.

SONY DSC

After that I used my all time favorite Hero Arts stamp Old Letter Writing and stamped with Forest Moss Distress Ink tone. This is how the card looks like:

SONY DSC

The sentiments are made with Tim Holtz Hashtag stamp set stamps and the butterflies are older product from my stash. Now onto the second card:

SONY DSC

I made this card background using the leftover ink that had stayed on the stencil after inking it for the first card. I first sprayed some water mist onto the inky area and then placed a piece of watercolour paper onto that area and rolled over it with a brayer. That way the end result will be nice and even. So these are actually the same colours as on the previous card, but in much lighter tone due to the water spray.

SONY DSC

This way I didn´t waste any ink and could create a nice negative stencil image background for my second card. I wanted to keep the main focus on the pretty background pattern and therefore just added some yarn, a pin, butterflies and a sentiment onto the card. Now let´s move to the third card:

SONY DSC

I again used the same Distress Ink tones like on my previous cards. This time I placed the stencil over a piece of white paper and just wiped the red Distress Ink onto the background thru the stencil. The stencil is again the 12×12 inch “Vineyard” one.

SONY DSC

Next I went and wiped some Wild Honey Distress Ink over the stenciled image and then used the 6×6 inch “Vineyard” stencil to add some light texture paste over the inked area.

SONY DSC

Before the paste was totally dry, I quickly added a layer of yellow Distress Glitter over the paste and let it dry. After it was totally dry I dabbed the residue off. It stayed put really well – you just need to work fast. If the paste has time to dry the glitter will not stick.

SONY DSC

And this is how the finished card looks like. I didn´t add a sentiment on the cover, as I found this card didn´t really need one. Depending on the occation, one can write the sentiment on to the inside later. Here are some closies of the cards.

I had lots of fun creating these cards and layering the stencils, stamps and media over each other. Now it is your turn – have fun!!!
