Let's Doodle!

It's already the third week that I'm making a project for the Monday Challenge as a guest designer in April. And this time we are doodling all the way. To stay in my range of Jane Davenport stamps, I selected the 'Single Face' and flowers from the 'Mixed Media-2'

The face is a big stamp, so I used A4-paper. I took some pictures from the building up of her face. To make sure her face is as vivid as can be I used the Tim Holz stamp platform. You can stamp several times and your stamp wil allways be at the same place. The flowers were done manually. Beware, the platform comes with 2 magnets and you will need 4 to make sure your paper stays in place. Especially when you use Stazon ink, as I do.

For the background of the flowers I used Distress Oxide (Abandoned Coral, Peacock Feathers and Spiced Marmelade) As you can see I put them all together to form her hair. On top of this there's some Infusions (A Bit Jaded). You can spray some water over it all to let all the colours blend a little bit. I wanted it to blend just a little bit, so the big dots would still be visible.

After this I filled the rest of the background with Distress Oxide (Twisted Citron on the top  and Faded Jeans at the bottom)

The flowers were doodled by using a white gel pen.

Her face was coloured with Distress Oxide, Walnut Stains and a lot of water. For her cheeks, lips and eyelids also Distress Oxide, Abandoned Coral mixed with a little bit of water.

To create my own background letter stamp I used the Type Lower Cling Foam Stamps from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology with Distress Oxide, Walnut Stains.

At the edged I doodled the stitching. And for the background the Kaisercraft Gritty Texture stamp was used, all over.

I hope this was useful for you all and I hope to see you again!

Mythology Inspired By A Story

 Designer Spotlight

 SSS Monday Challenge

Red Riding Hood

And again it's a Monday Challenge. This time it's all about 'Mythology inspired by a story'.
I let myself be inspired by Red Riding Hood. I just love the red cape 😉
The base for this project was a stamp from Jane Davenport. The faces in her stamps are beautiful.
And what I like about it, is that you can put your own creativity and drawingskills in it.
At first I used an eye from the Jane Davenport Mix and Match Eyes Nose and Mouth. I used a Tombow Mono Drawing Pen to draw her face, hair and cape.

For the background I used Distress Oxide, Faded Jeans and Cracked Pistachio, and sprayed some water on it. I made a stencil out of a Tim Holtz Sizzix Small Tattered Florals Thinlits Die and put the flowers in the corner. The colour is Walnut Stains from Distress Oxide. 

To create the fire red hood I blended some colours. Distress Ink Fired Brick and Dylusions Bubblegum Pink Shimmer. I used this same blend with a lot of water for her face. For her lips it was just the Pink Shimmer with a little bit of water.

Her hair is a combination of Distress Oxide Walnut Stains with water, Distress Crayon Squeezed Lemonade, Distress Crayon Black Soot, and a Glass Marker from Arteza Gold.
I must say I just love to work with the Distress Crayon Black Soot. I use it to create shadow of just a grunch effect at the edges.

The texture on her right side and a little bit in the left corner at the bottom was made with a 

Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Feather. I blended the texture paste with Infusions In the Navy Colored Stain. On top of it there's some Nuvo Mousse Gunmetal Grey to give it a little shine 

When you look closely I gave the background a little effect with a Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Dotted.

I hope it gives you inspiration for your own projects. And hope to see you next time!

 A trio of something

Hello everyone,

This is my first time participating the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge as a guest designer!
I will do this the whole month of April and I'm very exited to do this.
The first theme for April is: 'A trio of something'
What I like to do is give it a little twist. As well with the theme as what I'm showing.

For this I used some bright colours. Very different from what I normally use. But hey, always challenging myself ;-)
I used these 3 main colours: 
The Ranger Dylusions BUBBLEGUM PINK Shimmer Spray, Ranger Dylusions Ink Spray LEMON ZEST Dyan Reaveley, Ranger Dylusions Ink Spray CALYPSO TEAL Dyan Reaveley  
And for the edges Ranger Dylusions Ink Spray BLACK MARBLE Dyan Reaveley

For the 'Flower Fishes' I used a flower stamp from Heidi Swapp MAGNOLIA JANE.
In here there's a little twist that I used the flowers as fishes. Adding the white bubbles let it looks like they are under the water. I coloured their 'tales' with a mixture of the three ink colours I used for the background.

For the texture I used orange and red embossing powder.

To create some depth under water I used a black Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Crayon.

If you look closely you can see I gave a vague dark background effect with the Tim Holtz Layering Stencil DOTTED as if there are big bubbles.

For the white accents, highlights and bubbles I used the Sakura WHITE MEDIUM POINT Gelly Roll Classic Gel Pen
At the end I added a text and here also there's a little twist with regard to the theme ;-) The text stamps are also from the  Heidi Swapp MAGNOLIA JANE set.

I hope you enjoyed reading my manual for my project and hope to see you again!
