STAMPlorations~ March Mixed Media Challenge

Happy Sunday everyone, it's that time again for a new challenge over at

The theme is always anything mixed media goes except a card! Just remember you must use at least one stencil (any brand) in your project. You have until the end of the month to play!   

 This month, I made a couple of Spring inspired ATC's using ARTplorations Bubble Dance & Weaving Stencils and STAMPlorations Strong Women and Big Bloom Factory Stamps. 
 I used some Distress Oxides to create my background using the Smooshing Technique on Watercolor Paper and then  added some texture with the Distress Oxides thru the Weaving and Bubble Dance Stencils. I stamped Sentiments from the Strong Women set and finished with some Washi Tape and backed onto pastel purple CS. 

For the flowers I stamped the flowers onto Watercolor  Paper and embossed with clear EP and then watercolored them with Distress Oxides and my waterbrush pen. Once dry, I fussy cut them out and shaped and layered them and attached a brad

There, we have it, another fun make using the fabulous stamps and stencils from STAMPlorations. :o) I sure hope I've inspired you to get crafty and join in our challenge.

Little Blue Button Stamps~ March New Release

Good morning crafty friends, today I'm super excited to share with you my first make for

I'm so happy to be part of this creative team and working with Olga's adorable designs. 

Here's my make using one of the new releases this month, Easter Sophie. She's one of the two adorable Easter images this month!

I created my background using Distress Oxide Inks and water color paper and a Memory Box Die cut. I finished with a Impression Obsession Word Die cut and Crinkle ribbon. :)

I watercolored the image by printing her onto watercolor paper. I used Distress Markers to color her up. I am in love with those little chicks! lol. I chalked some clouds in behind her and cut her out.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope I've inspired you to get crafty. :o)
