My Latest Art Journaling Page

I had lots of fun this evening making this page.  I used Dyan Reaveley acrylic paints, Viva Decor gold molding paste, stencils from Heidi Swapp and The Crafter's Workshop, a heart stencil that I cut on my Cricut Explore Air, and various background stamps.  For the lettering, I used a Fude Ball Pen and a white Gelly Roll pen.  Links to follow soon.

Get Well Card for My BFF

One of my BFFs just came home from the hospital, and I wanted to send her a get well card.  Details below the photo.  Thanks for looking!

  • The card base is a pre-made kraft card that I converted into a tent card.  
  • The background is an embossed piece of cardstock that was left over from a gel plate texture print.  I had used the cardstock to pull paint for texture, and I just added a little Twisted Citron Distress Ink to the white parts.  (If I had been using a white card base, I would have left it white.)
  • The stamp set is Sick Turtle, by Inky Antics.
  • I stamped the turtle, bird, and sentiment using VersaFine Vintage Sepia.  (I don't know why mine is so green, but it worked for this card.)
  • I colored the images using Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.
  • The adhesive dots are very old.  They're made by Cloud 9 (told you they were old!), and I bought them on clearance at JoAnn's a few years ago.
  • The cardstock for the greeting is a left-over piece from another card.  I trimmed it into a banner shape.
  • I popped the images & sentiment up with foam tape.
  • I lightly brushed Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink onto the background of the image. using a makeup brush.
ETA:  The back says, "Hope your recovery is speedy."  :)
