Hat trick

There's a new challenge over at the Rick St.dennis Sparkle and Glitter blog, challenge theme is use a hat :-).

Here is my inspiration project for the challenge using Patti 1940 Hat digi by Rick St.dennis (there is a huge collection of hatladies in the Zibbet shop, check them out here ), I mad an ATC, the background is distress ink and Deco Art Media misters in blue and white. I used a Tim Holtz stampset too in the background.  The hatlady is colored using colored pencils, and I added rhinestones on her earrings and broche.


Hope you will join our challenge and have a look at the inspirations projects made by my teamies here

S.I. Reunion

Hi all welcome to my bloggie for my part in the Smeared Ink Reunion bloghop, you can find the blogroll at the bottom of this post.


I love making scenes using rubberstamps and for this card I used 2 Smeared Ink sets (Haunting places 1  and 2 by Rick St.dennis) and mixed them with 2 stamps from Sin city sets (the skull and bones are from the Dribones set by Rick St.dennis, now for a special prize of 14.95 USD for limited time,  the Moon is from the Sunshine Cherub set) and the bats from de Stempelwinkel.

I wish the moon was a little more creepy but I still like how it turned out, what do you think?

 Isn't it great to see how well all those different stamps work together.
 The background is distress ink and the stamps are colored using Faber Castell polychromos pencils
 Here a closer look, this did not take much masking, so it was pretty easy to do, maybe I should do a video on how I make these scenes.
The embossed edges on the card got some Deco Art metallic lustre in burnished brass to get some shine. I jut like the effect the metallic lusstres have.


For the ones that have not been around my bloggie for a while, check out my right sidebar, you will find a link to the stamp set I designed for Sin City and a link to my You Tube channel (would very much appreciate if you subscribed there )

Have fun hopping and hope to see you again on my blog
