Oddball Art Facebook Challenge & Technique a Week - Week 1

Hi Everyone,

It's the first of the month again, that means were launchin a new FB Challenge
Theme: Anything Goes with an Oddball Art Stamp.

We're also launchin our Technique a Week.
Every week, we will have a technique tutorial for you.
Starting March, if you're choosen by random org as our winner and you've created a project using 1 of the techniques from previous month you get to pick an extra digi stamp!
So that means, 4 instead of 3 Oddball Art Digi Stamps.

For this weeks technique:
Background with  Ken Oliver Crafts Color Burst

I've taken a piece of 14.8x10.5cm aquarel paper and taped it down to my craft mat.

Sprayed it with some water and took Ken Oliver Crafts Color Burst Chartreuse.
 Carefully squeezed the bottle a few times, spreading the powder on the watered card.
Once I felt I had enough powder on there, I sprayed it again with bit a bit of water.
To give it a bit more vibrant look, I've added a bit of the Lime Green 
and sprayed with a bit of water again.

I had a couple more aquarel cards ready and because the taped card was wet enough, I could pick up some of the colour with my second and third card.
Took my heatgun to dry them.



I've coloured Img #363 Hudson with distress ink refillers.
Cut the image down to 12.8 x 6.8 cm
Cut the colour burst background card down to 13.5 x 9.6cm and place these two pieces onto a 14.8 x 10.5 bit of cardstock.
On the back of this, Ive added a piece of lined paper with a very short discription of the technique used.

I've placed this inside 1 of the pockets of the photosheets in my storybook.
Because I picked up some of that wet colored water with my second and third card, I had those as spares, so I've placed them in the next pocket, keepin them safe for another project.
(along with some receipts from that weeks shopping)


I hope you enjoyed this technique.
Next week, we will have a new technique, hosted by Tina, so do not miss out and join
us again next week.

Huggsss,
Angelique

MIA for quite some time

Good morning everyone,

I know I've been MIA for a long time.
It was a combination of EVERYTHING.
Lost mojo, bad news about my bf's heart disease, went vacation, came back to a broken pc, bad news about my own disease, bf took an ambulance ride, daughter ended up in hospital.
A lot to plow through so the speak

Anyways, with 2017 just around the corner, I want to pick up my blog again.
I've bought myself a Cricut Explore Air 2 for Christmas and hoping this will help me get back into my crafting mode.

I did create a couple of things over the last few months and kept on doin my volunteers work at the carehome. Shall we have a look?

Let's start with the cards made for our Creative Fingers Challenge Blog SPONSORS!
Honostly, we have such great sponsors at our challenge blog and without them, there wouldn't be one.

BUGABOO STAMPS


I've been playin with 3 of the Bugaboo stamps:
Result......... this journal spread


The background is made using Dylusions Paints and for the clouds, I've used the Joy Crafts Clouds die set. Took the biggest cloud, cut it out of cardstock and used it as a template/mask
The images are colored with distress inks and Tombow markers
Text is stamped using an alphabet stamp set and for the white's I used a sharpy.
Unfortunately you can't see it verry well, but the flowers are verry sparkly and I have used the Clear Wink of Stella for that.
