Mixed media canvas

Hi fellow blogger - hope all is well with you all
Todays 2nd post is a canvas rather than a card as I found some texture paints and stencils in my declutter [which is still ongoing by the way :( ]
I have used gesso  for the background and then used white texture paint through a diamond stencil keeping it quite deep for dimension and not being too straight as the texture is the thing I wanted to highlight although still keeping the rule of 3.. I also  added 3 stencilled images with black matte dreamweaver embossing paste - again keeping it rough textured for dimension. I kept to the monochrome colour scheme for impact. It is a long time since I have tried working with a canvas and really enjoyed it and am in the process of another two - it is a fun play with texture :)

I am entering this in the following challenge

using a spellbinders stencil

Hi fellow bloggers - hope you are all getting some crafty time. This card is one I made using a spellbinders metal stencil/embossing die and I really like it.
I have used distress inks for colouring in and die cut butterflies using a sizzix thinlit from the big shot plus starter kit.  The background die cut is one from Anna Griffin.The sentiment is a stamp by tonic.
I am entering it the following challenge

Christmas card

Hi fellow crafters
Todays card is made using small squares cut, using a sizzix die, from a background I made using acetate, alcohol inks and tissue paper. I cut 3 small squares and added a small peel off star. This was set on 3 askew strips cut from a toning co ordinations card. The same peel offs were used atthe top and bottom of the card.
Happy crafting

Chriistmas card

Hi fellow bloggers
Still decluttering - ever wished that some ideas are not the best !! Still it will get completed although my target date is now flexible so still on the very quick cards
This card couldn;t be simpler as it is using a sizzix card maker die. I have used a sizzix embossing folder to emboss some co ordinations card as a background for the card front cut from silver mirri card.
Happy crafting

Thankyou card

Hi again fellow bloggers
Todays card is made using a Tim Holtz embossing folder which I used the letter press technique using a yellow distress ink pad. The flower is a scrap booking kit embellishment from my stash and I used a spellbinders die to cut the sentiment in 2 colours and offset them together.

Christmas card

hi fellow bloggers
I hope you are managing to get some crafting time, I am grabbing some odd bits of time while still continuing to declutter. However just having time to make really quick cards.
This card is using 2  Sweet Dixie dies, Snowman and snowflakes, that I bought as part of a set from the craft channel here in the UK [one of a choice of 3 channels], I used organza ribbon and glitter card for the background. The sentiment was an orphan clear stamp on a tonic diecut. Promarkers were used to colour some areas of the snowman
Happy crafting

Thankyou card

Hi again fellow bloggers
Hope you have had some time for crafting today.
Going through my stash I am discovering dies and stamps that  I forgot I had :)
This card  used another Sizzix die that has the look of  a Rennie McIntosh design about it I think,
I used 2 shades  of blue card by DCWV.
The image was stamped/coloured with denim adirondak ink and the sentiment is another die cut - this time from spellbinders.

Happy crafting :)
