Mixed media Artist trading cards







Hello lovelies, hope you are well! Today I am sharing my DT creations for Arty Divas . There's a brand new challenge over on their blog today, we would love for you to come and join us! 

Our wonderful sponsor is Tandiart and the winner will receive a fabulous prize from their Etsy store.


For my DT creations I have designed some mixed media ATC's.




Here I have used these delightful Fairy faces digital stamps from Tandiart, I just adore them! I have coloured them with Faber Castel pencils. 





I also used these colour Distress crayons  along with a star layering stencil and modelling paste.






Once the modelling paste had dried, I tore some text tissue paper and adhered it to my ATC's. I also added some ruler washi tape in random places. Finally I adhered the digital stamps with some pop dots and printed out the sentiments. 




I have made some more ATC's with another collage set from Tandiart; and a tutorial on how I made them will be on my blog soon!

Thanks so much for stopping by, I really appreciate your visit! Hugs, Zowie xx

Winter Wishes- Artsystamper DT creations










Hello lovelies, Happy New Year, I hope you are well! Today I am sharing my DT creations for Artsystamper. There's a brand new challenge over on their blog and the winner will receive a fabulous prize from the Artsystamper shop.





I have created three designs using the Wintry paper pack and beautiful Snow Birds  digital stamp set, I just adore these darling birds! 





For my first two creations, I have made some faux glassine bags from tracing paper {so easy!} I may do a future tutorial on how I made these! 









Here I have used a vintage Bingo card and a torn page from a vintage French dictionary that I purchased from a thrift store! Next, I adhered this beautiful pre-coloured Chickadee from the stamp set. 




For this faux glassine bag, I have created it as the one above, but have used the wonderful Blue Jay stamp from the stamp set. 






For this card, I have used the Chickadee stamp once more; I JUST love him! I printed this winter scene photo which was free from Pixabay. and designed the whole card around it! I have also used the White pine cone paper from the paper set and a strip of corrugated card that I painted with White acrylic paint to compliment the photograph. 





Here I have adhered some snowflake dies that have been sprinkled with Deco Art Glamour dust. They are SO sparkly! I also printed out the words 'Winter Wonderland'.





Finally, I adhered two Christmas tree dies from white and cream cardstock. I ran them through an embossing folder to give them some more detail. I have also added 3D snow to the tips of the branches. To Finish my card I have adhered the Chickadee stamp on top of the trees. 

Thank you so much for stopping by, I really appreciate your visit! Hugs, Zowie xx
