MIX89 A Hello From Dr. House

It’s time for a new Mix-Ability Challenge on Splitcoasterstampers!

This week Lydia challenged us to cut an image from a magazine and make a mask with it.

MIX Gentleman Jeanne_Streiff

My first step was to create a quick wash background on watercolor paper (Ranger Distress Rusty Hinge & Broken China). I kept it pretty light so I could add more color later with my mask. MIX Gentleman 4 Jeanne_Streiff

After much debating on an image I chose my favorite TV doctor. He was missing part of his arm so I carefully took the magazine magazine apart and cut out some extra paper from the page on the other side.MIX Gentleman 1 Jeanne_Streiff

And here he is cut out.MIX Gentleman 2 Jeanne_Streiff

The I put a couple coats of Gesso on him. A Gel medium  would have been better but since I’m not home I used what I had. MIX Gentleman 3 Jeanne_Streiff

Next I placed my mask on my wash background and went to town sponging and splattering (Ranger Distress Rusty Hinge & Broken China & Vintage Photo). I sprayed a teeny bit of white on with Dylusions White Linen Spray (LOVE this spray!). And then…………MIX Gentleman 5 Jeanne_Streiff

I removed the mask! Pretty cool, huh?MIX Gentleman 6 Jeanne_Streiff

I finished things off with a hat, mustache and tie from the Impression Obsession Retro Masculine set &  a Hello die from the Impression Obsession Greetings SetMIX Gentleman angle Jeanne_Streiff

I made some clouds with Gesso and then stamped the tree. I added  Autumn Flower Soft for my “leaves”. The grassy area was made with Touch Twin Markers. To tie in a little embellishment I added Flower Soft to my ribbon. Thinking of You Jeanne_Streiff

Balloons AND More Balloons!

K… there is lots of fun to be had with the new Up Up & Away Cutting Plate from Taylored Expressions. This die set comes with extra dies for the balloons so layering is a breeze. So much fun and it can be used many ways!

My cards today are both from the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges on Splitcoast. So many challenges all month long!

Are you playing along with us? If not, you’re missing out on the chance to lift the spirits of women battling breast cancer at MD Anderson, and also on more than $5000 in prizes from your favorite crafty companies.

So what are you waiting for? Get to stamping!

For this card I trimmed the frame off of the Up Up & Away Cutting Plate with scissors and used old book page that was inked  to die cut my balloons. I sprayed a little Dylusions Spray White Linen and doodled a border. The phrase is from When Your Heart Speaks.

For my next project I trimmed two of the balloons from the frame of the Up Up & Away Cutting Plate and added Silver Glitter Paper (that I inked with Touch Twin Markers).  I heat set the balloons with a Ranger Heat Tool. I added a phrase first (Leave a Little Sparkle) and then attached my balloons. I used a pen to fill in the letters and stars onto my balloon strings.
