Vera Lane Studio - Belle Âme

 Happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project which is an altered gift bag featuring Belle Ame which is available in the Etsy shop.

 I tore some script paper and kraft card I had and glued it randomly on the bag. One of the pieces of kraft card I ran through my Marvy paper crimper tp give the corrugated effect.

I applied some white gesso around all the ripped edges to soften the look. I then applied some Antique Linen and Vintage Photo to my glass mat and spritzed some water on them, I then used a brush and applied the colours randomly over the gesso and edges of bag.

I stamped using the grid from Visual Ingredients in Ground Espresso. I then stamped using the bubble wrap in Vintage Photo. Script from Background Noise in Vintage Photo and finished off the stamping using a pen lid and some Snowflake white Paperartsy paint.

Next I splattered with paint from my Posca pens in White, Brown and Gold

I adhered a strip of canvas and some jute ribbon.

Once I had coloured my image with all E number Copics, apart from her gold flower eyelashes and star, I adhered her above the canvas. I used a Dark Brown     Zig watercolour pen and ran around her edges to add shadow. I also did the same with the stars which were punched out of kraft and paint splattered.

To finish off I added the sentiment and doodled around it with my black fineliner.

Vera Lane Studio - Pizza My Heart

Happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project which is featuring Pizza My Heart which is available in the Etsy shop.

Today I'm serving up a 6 inch well fired pepperoni pizza as my project. As much as my husbands family are Italian I'm not a huge pizza fan. Probably why it's well fired...LOL. 

You really do need to use your imagination a bit here. 

(and read the bits in brackets in an Italian accent!)

 I started by applying some texture paste using the AALL And Create stencil #88Ring The Changes. Once it was dry I smooshed it in some Crackling Campfire and Festive Berries distress oxides mixed with water. I then cut them out with a circle die. I then inked around the edges with some Crackling Campfire.

(That's a the pepperoni!)

I did the same smooshing technique on my 6 inch pizza base. I then stamped one of the stamps from #338 background noise in Candied Apple. 

(That's a the tomato!)

I also stamped one of the script stamps from the same set in Vanilla  Paperartsy acrylic paint.

 (That's a the cheese!)

I then added the pepperoni and used my Black Zig watercolour pen to ink around it and the base.

(That's a the well fired effect!)

I then used my black Posca paint pen to add splatters. 

(That's a the cracked black pepper!)

I finished with the heart from the digi set and inked it with Cracked Pistachio DO and stencilled it with the same stencil using Lucky Clover DO.

(That's a the Basil!)

To finish I coloured my image with copics and cut her out. I then added the sentiment and doodled with my black fineliner around it, and some black watercolour underneath to tie it all in.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

 Saturday and time for another 

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

The theme from Team Wendy is
Cards For Teens/Kids
I added a circle of the dinosaur footprints paper to the leafy background paper. I then cut out the cheesecloth die in kraft card and added it to the left side of the circle. I coloured Whimsy Stamps Bronti with my copics and added him on top of the cheesecloth die cut.
I printed my sentiment and die cut it out using the Memory Box wrapped circles, along with some in white,green and kraft card. I added the number 4 in white from the Lawn Fawn Finley's 123s die set.
To finish off I added the leaf die cut using a The Works die.
Perfect for a dino loving 4 year old!

Vera Lane Studio - 99% Angel

Happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing my Vera Lane Studio DT project which is an 6x6 journal page featuring 99% Angel which is available in the Etsy shop.

 I brayered some Paperartsy Haystack coloured paint onto my page. I then toned it down in bits using Snowflake white. I used one of the circles from #404 Visual Ingredients and stamped it in the top left corner with Versafine Clair Cheerful to look like a sun. I used the little raindrop like stamp to add the rays. I then second generation stamped the other circle stamp in Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide. I also stamped the little semi circles stamp in Cheerful.

Next I used the cloud looking stamp from #211 Count On You and stamped it in Frayed Burlap randomly on the page. I then used #352 Circled numbers and stamped parts of it using Fossilised Amber DO.

 I coloured in my images with my copic markers and cut them out. I added the clouds to the page. I then added some white paint splatters using my tombow white paint pen. Next I added my image and sentiment to finish off
