Magenta Blog Hop


Supplies used:

Imagine Crafts Tsukineko Inks: Memento Luxe - Dandelion, Morocco, Espresso Truffle, Rhubarb Stalk and Elderberry. Versafine Onyx Black and Delicata Silver Shimmer. Jumbo Dauber.
Magenta: Rubber stamps - Echinacea, Delicate Branch, Echinacea solid. Stencils - Dutch Houses.
Black and white card
I began by stamping my flowers with Versafine Onyx Black and coloring them in with the inks listed above using a waterbrush. I then cut them out.
Next I drew around the Dutch House Stencil and cut it out.
Using the Memento Luxe Inks - Dandelion and Morocco, I used an Imagine Crafts Jumbo Dauber to blend the ink. I then stamped with the Magenta, Delicate Branch Stamp.

I then replaced the stencil and using the jumbo dauber and Delicata Silver Shimmer, I added the windows and door.

Before assembling my card I used the jumbo dauber to create a moon in the sky!

Creative Chaos!

Thank you for stopping by to inspect my mess lol
Here it is in all of its glory! I recently moved in and have no dedicated workspace/room so most of my creative stuff is in the garage. I'm using a Walmart collapsible table and am surrounded by boxes and furniture ready for the rest of the house!

To be honest, I don't notice the mess when I am creating and I get a great sense of comfort from being surrounded by what I need close at hand. Eventually the chaos will have a home of its own, but my table will always be a mess and that is how I like it!

A big THANKS to Seth Apter of The Altered Page for organizing this event, and for getting people to bare their studio tables!
