Relics & Artifacts Christmas Card Swap

 Hopefully all the swap recipients have received my card by now. 



For my card I used the Earth stamp created by Sandra Evertson.  It was stamped on tissue, then painted with Coloration Sprays from Art Anthology.  The base is watercolor paper painted yellow and then pink rays.  When the tissue was dry it was glued to the watercolor paper.   Dresden Daisy Chain was cut apart and adhered to the tree.  Last gold foil wings and a heart finished the card.

Art Anthology Design Team Project - December

This is my first post as a member of this amazing Art Anthology Design Team. Mixed media is where my heart is when it comes to creating, but if you follow me you will see I dabble in other mediums as well.


In this post I am sharing a couple of wooden tags created with a Art Anthology stencil, glass and waxes.


Products used:
Industrial Stencil
Art Anthology Paste Wax – Silver and Antique Gold
Art Anthology Minx Shimmering Ink – Indulgence
Art Anthology Sorbet Dimensional Paint – Glass
Red German Glass Glitter
Art Anthology Craft Mat
Palette Tool
Wooden Tags
Gesso Black & White
Straws (pained with black gesso)
Cloth or paper flower
Spray bottle of water
Glue

Paint the wooden tags with white gesso and dry. Using the Art Anthology Industrial stencil randomly apply Sorbet Dimensional Glass to the tag and dry.


Dimensional Glass is dry, rub Art Anthology Antique Gold Wax desired over the entire tag. Rub Antique Gold and Silver Wax on the straws – rubbing the waxed straws with a cloth will give them shiny finish. Adhere the straws to the tag with glue.


Spritz flower lightly with water, shake the Minx Shimmering Ink – Indulgence, apply to the flower petals with the eye dropper. After the flower dries apply glue to the edges of the petals, then add the German glass glitter, remove the excess glitter and dry. Adhere to the tag once totally dry!


Add twine or ribbon and you have a tag for a gift. Finish the back and it could be a tree ornament.


Additional supplies to complete this tag: twine and wooden snowflakes.


Rub Art Anthology Antique Gold & Silver Waxes desired over the entire tag. Wrap twine around the wooden tag and adhere with glue.


Rub Antique Gold Wax on the small snow flake and the and Silver Wax on the large snowflake, layer and adhere them the to the tag.


That is it for now! Hope you have been inspired to create something today!
