For our challenge this month I decided to make a couple of tags with these fun Halloween Rubber Stamps.  These stamps are called Trick Or Eat!!  Who doesn't love them some Zombies!!
I started off my using black cardstock and using the Kaiser Craft Decorative Dies for the tag.  Then I used the Tim Holtz Shattered Glass Stencil and Distress Oxides to create the background.  The colours I used were Broken Glass, Iced Spruce and Vintage Photo.  Once I coloured the images with Copics I then fussy cut them out and then used foam dots to add them to the tags.   This will give them a more 3D effect. The flowers were made with the MFT Upsey Daisies and Flower Trio dies.  I used the same black cardstock and oxides on the flowers.  I finished them off with some large ribbon bows!  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your week!

Krafty Komeback With Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

The Krafty Vault is being opened again and today we are re-releasing TWO rubber sets!
 

These fabulous and sassy sets come as completely unmounted pre-trimmed natural red rubber! There are only a FEW of each available right away and then we will be taking preorders for more!
BOOTYLICIOUS comes with two large sassy pirate images by artist Annie Rodrigue plus two coordinating sentiments!
TRICK OR EAT comes with two amazing zombie ladies plus seven coordinating sentiments! These sets have NOW been released and are in the shop right now!
Since you're already shopping, don't forget about the FRUGAL FRIDAY SPECIALS that are also up in the shop! A selection of FOUR of our fabulous clear stamp sets are 40% OFF but only for the weekend! Hop on over to check out if any of them are on your wish list!
 
 
So today for the re-release of Bootylicious I wanted to try something completely different! I stamped the images, then I coloured them with Copics and fussy cut them out. 
So I decided to make a mixed media canvas.  This canvas is 7x7 inches.  I coated it with white gesso and then it dry.  I used my Distress Inks to add the sky.  The white foam from the waves was created using embossing paste and a palette knife.  I used a fence die from La-La-Land and corrugated cardboard to make a partial fence.  Then painted it with acrylics.  I did the same thing for the anchor only the die was from YNs.  I wanted some texture on the anchor so I used more paste on the anchor before I painted it.  I added some cheesecloth and sea shells for texture.  The little white seagulls were hand-drawn and then cut out and painted.  Once this all dried I was able to add the images and the sentiment.  The final touch was to add some more distress ink around the edges for an aged look.  I was quite thrilled with how it turned out.  Now I just need to buy a frame!
Have a wonderful week!
