Packing Tape Transfer Challenge

The Designers from Altered Arts Magazine were given a challenge to create ATC's using packing tape to transfer an image. I have posted a small image of one that I did and you can see it in full size and the others that I did by clicking HERE.

We would love to have you participate in this challenge and you can read more about it at my Altered Arts Magazine blog.

Till the next time

Think Monday - ATC Photo Image Stamps

Did someone say Photo image stamps? The theme for Think Monday Think ATC is using Photo Image Stamps

WOW!! I just love them! These two pieces feature photo image stamps from "Stampsmith"!

I am sorry to say that lately I have not been using them and need to get them out. I love using Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Ranger Crafts) on mine. They make them look like a real vintage picture. Just stamp your image with the ink pad and then take a brayer and run it over a few times to make certain that the ink is well distributed on the stamp, then stamp on glossy card stock for a beautiful realistic picture! If you don't have glossy card stock then glossy photo paper works just as well. Just be careful when you heat set so it does not bubble! LOL! Trust me I know.

I also like using Memories Black India Ink for a crisp image as well.

I have more of my cards that I have made using photo image stamps at my picture trail site and can see them there.

Mixed Media Monday ~ Whimsy

Mixed Media Monday's theme is Whimsy and I just love this little gal! The image is from Altered Pages.

Theme Thursday - Valentines

It's that time of year with love in the air and the theme for "Theme Thursday" is Valentines!

Here is one that I made using images from Altered Pages. I made the background using paints and stamps and then giving them a light wash of gesso.
