This fortnight it's my turn to dream up a recipe for the Dragons Dream Tag it On challenge.
I came up with this: “Magical mystery"
Ingredients - a little magic, some mystery and a little fairydust
and of course it has to be a tag and you have to use at least 1 real stamp.
Can't wait to what you all will make with this recipe.
Although this is my recipe, I didn't have a plan to start with, but when I combined the magic and the fairydust this tag sort of happened.
I had to take the pic this way otherwise you couldn't see the fairydust (or is it pixiedust ? because of Tink), I used stickles for that and I think it turned out nice.
The background is made using chalk, put hairspray over the chalk to keep it from comming off the tag and then stamped Tink, Mickey and the bacground is the Dutch definition of the word mystery, and ofcourse the magic is also a stamp.
Maybe this is not the kind of tag you'd expect me to make, but I love Disney and the recipe made me think of all the fun we had in our visits to the happiest place on earth enjoying all the magic , the mystery and the fairydust.
This weeks Smudgy Antics challenge is "Reptile Rampage" if you go to the Smeared Ink shop you will find some new "Reptile " and a lot of other new images there, made by our very own Suzy (Ike) how cool is that.
You can find the rules here hope to see all your awesome creations in the challenge soon.
The digi is coloured with pencil and the background is made of pastels, then stamped using versamark (what you use for embossing powder and put som chalk over it with a brush, put hairspray over it to stop the chalk from comming of then added the coloured digi and the gems.
See you in the challenge and for Creepmas soon (see side bar for info)
I know with the holidays fast approaching it feels like time is flying by at a dizzying pace. Everyone is rushing around getting shopping done, planning parties, and buying presents. Many will be celebrating their holiday of choice soon and before you know it we will be bringing in the New Year! We at Smudgy Antics are asking you to slow it down a bit for this challenge. Not only will time be slowing down, it will be at a complete stop because this week's theme is "TIME STANDS STILL".
Here is my piece, I used Smeared Inks digi "Hand of Time" and a TH die, the background is a clock clear stamp. The digi is coloured with pencils and the background is distress ink. The clock die was painted blue and then I added crackle.
This fortnight it was the very talented Silvia's turn to dream up a challenge at Dragons Dream TIO , and she came up with this:
"Handle with care" - something fragile, and animal and a warning. There is got to be at least 1 real stamp involved and it has to be a TAG.
This one was not easy, had to think real hard what to do with this one, but finally came up with something, and I like how it turned out, let me know what you think
Hope to see all your wonderful tags in the challenge again,
This weeks Smudgy Antics theme is really easy Tic tac toe 3 in a row, choose 3 in a row from image below and get crafty( the rules are on Smudgy Antics blog)
I chose doodle /fabric or ribbon/ flowers
here is my project
The background is doodled and the digi is Smeared Inks Stichy situation doll 2, this doll in real life would have been made out of fabric and I stiched the stiches on eyes and face with thread (hope that counts LOL) the flowers are doodled too.
Visiting the Efteling feels like traveling back in time to me, that's why I wanted to give the card a vintage look, and make the image look like it was an old tile, with cracks in it.
I used some darker colours to colour the image and then covered it with a thick layer clear embossing powder (you have to to that layer for layer use 2 or 3 layers for this).
When the embossing powder is melted and it is thick enough you put it in the freezer for at least 5 minutes, the cold makes the embossing powder easy to crack. Don't worry you can't mess up this one, if you don't like the cracks you made just heat again an the cracks will melt away.
You may have to put the image in the freezer multiple times cause when the embossing gets warm again it wil bend and don't crack. when you are happy with the result take an ink pad (I used distress ink walnut stain) and rub it over the image, wipe away with a cloth and make sure the ink gets in the cracks. Done.
I will enter this card in the following challenges:
