Walking Bears

I got some sticky back canvas, decided to try coloring with my distress stains & some picket fence,  Then I stamped the clouds, mountains, birds, trees grass with my Stampscapes stamps  Fringed the edges, layered, finished..

Shattered Stains Umbrella Man

A Kaleidoscope of Color & Flowers

I made this tag to enter the challenge at Simon Says Stamps, A Kaleidoscope of Color!and I'm also entering at Inspiration Emporium's challenge  of Flowers.

I used Distress stains with Picket Fence for my background, Cricut cut my butterflies, vase, water pail, stamp is from Hero Arts, punched the flowers in the vase.  I colored & spritzed my ribbons with water but not showing too well, embossed the background with my Big Kick.

Dabber Resist

This is my entry for a CC101 group challenge called dabber resist.  I only have one dabber, bought it on sale long time ago, at least I know they don't dry out.

Supplies used:  Sticky back canvas, Distress inks, distress stains, denim dabber, a few gems, punched butterflies and ribbons.  The bird is from the Urban Tapestry set.

Compendium of Curiosities II Challenge 4

This is my entry for the 4th challenge of Compendium of Curiosities II over at Studio L3 on page 43.  If you'd like a copy of  Tim Holtz's book you can order an autographed copy here.

I'm in love with Umbrella Man, I don't have my die cut or stamp yet, (they are on the way) so I used my embossing folder, cutting him out then colored in black with a marker.  My first attempt at this technique, I just noticed I should have left the birds without eyes, boy did I get these wrong eh.....
