Theme Thursday Challenge - Favorite Letter!

For the Theme Thursday Challenge I decided to use "R", just because I wanted to use the Ravens. I also think I may give this to my friend, Rochelle, for her birthday!  I used a piece of a deli paper that I painted as a background. It has a flourish and hands stamped on it and some gesso and parts of a piece of newspaper.  The raven stamps are from the terrific party raven set from Lost Coast Designs. The are stamped on glossy stock and colored with ink. I sewed on the piece of handmade paper on the right. I have a flourish punch which I used to punch out 2 images from a page of a book.  The tag is tea-stained and stamped. Faux rhinestone and scrabble piece added. Enjoy!

Tag Tuesday Challenge

This weeks Tag Challenge is to make a collage tag and use at least one sticker. I decided to build it around the cute picture of the child and dog that Marilyn Rock sent me last week. I also love the dog stamp that I have and wanted to use that too. My child is a Jack Russell Terrier, named Sophie. These images make me think of her and make me happy!  She is the dog in the photo with the pumpkin on my profile. The stickers I used are the paw prints. Enjoy!

Deli Paper Fun

Here is an envelope I made using the deli paper technique by Marilyn Rock, that I referenced in the last blog. SO MUCH FUN!  Please check it out. I sewed the sides like she did in her video. Here are 2 other sheets I made, which I then cut up and made 2 cards.
I stamped with gesso and sepia ink and also placed newspaper print and sheet music on wet paint, and then ripped it off, so that some of it would stay.

Think Monday, Think ATC - All In A Row

I decided to pick a row of trees for my ATC Challenge Submission this week.  I guess with the blog name of Wooded Solitude, it makes sense that it would resonate with me. The stamp is from Artistic Outpost. I kept thinking I should embellish it, but I like it simple. The background is a piece of acrylic painted/collage deli paper that I made yesterday. The technique I learned from a video from Marilyn Rock.  Here is the link to the second video. The first video is in the righthand sidebar. The bird is from Oxford Impressions collage sheet.

Artistic Outpost March Referral Program

I just completed this card for the Artistic Outpost March Referral Program.  The theme is Party and Celebration. I chose a stamp from the Bluebird Collection which I stamped in black, embossed in clear powder and then colored with inks and pencils.  I layered it on a cool fiber paper, that I inked blue ink on the edges to help it stand out. Then glued it on a patterned craft paper with a piece of a music score added. Embellished with buttons, beads and lace and a computer generated saying.

Hey............Good Looking!

I made this card a month or so ago and just love it. It was a bit labor intensive, but worth it. One of my friends bought it from me, so now I need to make another.
The men are an old 1903ish photo that I copied on glossy paper and cut them out and apart. The door is a stamp from B Line Designs. I cut out the windows and put a piece of vellum in back of them, that I had stamped with a chicken wire background(Lost Coast Designs). The border is also LC Designs and the hand is from River City Rubber Works.The stamp is an old cancelled stamp and the background script is from Paperbag Studios. I used a bit of everybody! The watch is plastic.

A bit tricky scanning with the pom poms and having it come out clear. Enjoy!
