Mix it all Up!

Hi Everyone


Over at WOW HQ this month is MIXED MEDIA.

I have used an ATC (Artist Trading Card) and started by covering this with Versamark ink.
I then used an item I found in the pound shop.  It is what you put flour in to sprinkle on your surface to stop the dough sticking.  The holes are big enough for the embossing powder to come through.

I then got a little bit of the following embossing powders and put them in the sprinkler: Primary Chartreuse, Gold Pearl, Earthtone Paprika, Bright White and added a little bit of black puff powder.   


I then sprinkled this onto the Versamark and heat set.

I then used pieces of a torn old book and glued 2 x strips onto the ATC.  I then put Versamark on the top of this and again sprinkled the embossing powder mixture mostly onto the strips of paper and heat set again.  The paper slightly bubbled and raised off the ATC giving a small dome effect.

I then stamped with Versamark, the script stamp from 'Call Me' and stamped this onto the ATC.  I then sprinkled ebony embossing powder over the script and heat set.  I then got the large butterfly stamp from the 'Make a Wish' set and stamped with Versamark and heat set with Ebony embossing powder.

My small masterpiece.

  1. I have always wondered how to make an embossing powder "sprinkler", I was thinking pepper shaker or piercing holes into a temporary lid but your find is great! Love the results too...

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.


For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.




The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.




I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!


Here are brief instructions on how to make it:



STEP ONE

Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…
