Coloring on Adhesive Fabric

Hello everyone!!  In the spirit of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge hosted by the uber fabulous Kathy Rac from The Daily Marker,  I thought I would share my latest colouring project!!

I had this 6x6 Adhesive Fabric Paper pad for sometime now and was never quite sure how to use it.  Today, I decided to experiment a bit.

I chose a stamp set from The Ton Stamps called Happiest of Peonies.  It's a beautiful image.  I used my MISTI for the stamping because of the texture of the fabric.  I used Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink because I wasn't sure what medium I was going to use or rather, what medium was going to work!

I used a small corner to test a few mediums out..
The red mark is an alcohol marker (quite a bit of bleeding), the light green is a watercolour pencil with water (again, some bleeding) and the dark green is 3 different shades of green watercolour pencil blended with water.  Of course, I knew there was going to be some bleeding, it is fabric after all!!  I decided not to us…

Waffle Flower-A Bunch

Hello everyone and welcome back!!  I'm here today to share a card using Waffle Flower stamps and dies.  I had always had my eye on the A Bunch stamps and dies.  I thought they were super cute but I never seemed to add it to my cart.  But I finally bit the bullet and purchased it.  And am I ever glad I did!!  It's a cute, whimsical set with many possibilities.  I used it in the most basic way today, though. Good 'ol simple stamping and die cutting!!

I started by stamping the outline of the flowers in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I used my mini Misti for this as it was the first time I used this set and thought that a double stamp might be needed.  I was wrong!!  It stamped perfectly the first time.

 Now the solid images for the leaves and flowers is actually all one piece.  But the images are spaced far enough apart that you can ink with mini ink cubes (masking might be necessary with full size ink pads).  I used inks from Plus9 and Simon Says Stamp. Again, no double stamping …

Paper Smooches July Challenge

Hello everyone and welcome back!!  I've made a card for one of my favourite stamp company challenges...Paper Smooches!!!  This month's challenge is SUMMER.

My original idea consisted of a bright, striped die cut background and an Ice Cream Cone die.  I actually made the background panel and coloured the ice cream cone. Those will be another project because the gears totally changed!!  This is a challenge, right??  And although a striped background and ice cream cone SCREAM summer, I wanted to think outside of the box.  So I picked out a couple of summer themed stamp sets and one Christmas one.  Can you see where I'm going with this??

Here's a peek of the images all coloured in:

Yes. A tropical card with a snowman and a bird wearing a santa hat!!  And a sentiment that ties everything together :)
Here is my finished project. I hope you like it because I had a ton of fun creating it!!

Thank you for stopping by!!
