Happy Dog

Morning everyone, hope you are all well.

Toaday I have a card using my newly released A7 Stamp, Happy Dog.

I love the colours on this piece. I stamped the background using my Snippet Alphabet #456 and Distress Oxide Inks. I used the stamp as a whole, stamping without the use of an acrylic block, to give me more of a mixed media feel and look.

I also incorporated some cheesecloth and cotton threads to give further texture to my pieces.

The heart has been stamped with my Heart Grunge Stamp, a new favourite #453. I love how there are so many elements on the stamp that can be used individually.

I added a touch of shading with an Inktense pencil and coloured my litle dog with Polychromo Pencils.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Mixed Media Bug

Afternoon, hope you are all well and keeping safe.

Today I have a mixed media piece for you, one I thoroughly enjoyed creating.

I love the detail on this piece and the background was fun to make.

I also love the hot glue gun detail on the wings.




I also used the hot glue gun on my numbers, painted them black and then added some wax on the top. On the bottom picture you can also see that I also used a piece of my mop up kitchen towel.

This was such a fun piece to create.

Winged Bugs

Afternoon everyone, hope you are all well and keeping safe. 

Today I have a mixed media piece showcasing my A4 Stamp Winged Bugs #388.

I love the blue/turquoise on this piece and the texture. There is something about adding layers to a design, they really do bring a piece to life.




I love adding the close up photos as I think you can really see all the detail, they draw the eye into the piece. Sometimes you can't appreciate the work involved without seeing some of the close up photos. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment. Hugs. Tracy x
