Happy Friday!

I’m hosting the Mix-Ability challenge on Splitcoast this week! The challenge is to use a heart in your project along with at least two mediums. I used Stamps from Impression Obsession, inks, watercolor and a little white acrylic paint on my project.  You can see the challenge HERE.With Love Jeanne_Streiff

I started by stamping my flower (). I used my Mini MISTI (My Sweet Petunia) to stamp the image repeatedly adding inks to the stamp until I got a good blend. Did you notice the new My Sweet Petunia Creative Corners? I love them!!! 1 With Love Jeanne_Streiff

Next I added my heart () and some loose watercoloring around the flower. I stamped my heart directly on top of my flower. I added some details to the flower with white acrylic paint. 2 With Love Jeanne_Streiff

I stamped the sentiment with black ink. The  My Sweet Petunia Creative Corners came in especially handy here because My paper was a little warped from the watercoloring It held the center down very firmly so I could stamp my sentiment without magnets sticking together.. nice!

After I was done with this step I misted the back side of the paper lightly with water and let it dry with a couple heavy books on top to get it smooth again before assembling my card. 3 With Love Jeanne_Streiff

Happy Chickens!

Hello there!

This is my first post with a new to me stamp company Simply Stamps. They have an assortment of craft stamps and they also make a huge variety of address stamps and custom stamps.

Today I’ll be working with the Made With Chicken stamp (which is in the food packaging stamps section which I thought was funny because my chickens are anything but food) and a Custom One Line stamp that I had made with the phrase. Ever had a phrase that you can’t find? You can have it made… fun stuff!

I started by making a simple watercolor wash background with ink on watercolor paper. I used the same 4 colors of ink as I will use for stamping my chickens.

Once dry, I sponged the edges of the watercolored panel with brown ink and then attached it to my card base. I stamped the Custom One Line stamp (Happy Everything) in black ink.

Next I stamped my chickens with Made With Chicken .

I used a circle punch to cut out the chickens.

I arranged the chickens on my card with foam dots for a little dimension.
