{a vintage girl} and her daughter ~ Nautical Slimline Card

 I love working with nautical themes.  

Today, I created a card using the "Sailing Nauticals" stickers from {a vintage girl}and her daughter!



This is a slimline, the ivory frame has been raised using dimensional foam.  The die cut waves are attached to the back of the frame and the stickers are adhered to the background paper giving the card a 3D effect. 

You can find this sheet of stickers and many more, plus you will Amplify Planner Stickers  on Etsy at {a vintage girl}and her daughter HERE!

IN HONOR OF EARTH DAY


Hello, I am here with a few ATCs honoring Earth Day on April 22. To honor the day I created three ATCs of trees, using twine as the base of the trees.

Art Anthology Supplies used: 
Velvet Dimensional Paints: Desire, Marigold and Gecko
Shine Dimensional Paints: Ruby, Onyx and Cocoa
Sorbet Dimensional Paints: Guava, Sea Serpent and Blueberry
Texture Sets: Patina - Teal Velvet
Stone Effects Dimensional Medium: Sandstone 
Wax Paste: Antique Gold
Craft Matt and Palette Tool

Other Supplies:
ATC boards
White Gesso
Paint Brushes
Water
Glue
Paper Towel
Heat tool
Twine 
Wood birds 

First, I cut the twine into workable lengths and glued them to the ATCs board. I used a thick ATC board since I was going to be using a lot of glue, gesso and paint, the board would hold up to the liquid in the supplies I am painting with.


Once the glue was dry I covered the ATCs with two coats of gesso, letting it dry between coats. Use a heat tool to speed up the drying time.


I first added the Stone Effects Dimensional Medium: Sandstone along the bottom of each ATC. Then painted the trees with Shine Dimensional Paints: Cocoa. Finally, I painted the scene/backgrounds with all the awesome Art Anthology Dimensional Paints listed in the supplies above. I let paints dry before adding another color if I did not want them to blend.


To finish the ATCs, wooden birds were painted and adhered with glue and Wax Paste: Antique Gold was applied to the edges to frame the ATCs.

Hope this has inspired you to create a project honoring Earth Day! Please share your Art Anthology projects with us in our Face Book Group “Art Anthology Adventures in Art“. THANKS FOR STOPPING BY! Have a great CREATIVE DAY! Until next time!

Some fun information about bats: "April is also the best time of the year to observe bats, as they are now beginning to emerge from hibernation. The observance is an excellent time to learn about the role bats play in nature. Since bats are considered “insectivorous” creatures, they rid our world of many annoying insects. In one hour, a bat can eat up to 1,000 mosquitoes."

Relics & Artifacts Stamp-a-Day Challenge - DAY 31

I have taken the Relics & Artifacts Stamp-a-Day March Challenge


Here is my March 31st make:

Today I have stamped another large tag with the "Water" image. The image was heat embossed with embossing powder. Then I colored the tag with oxide inks and added a bit of glitter for the foaming waters.  
This will make a great slimline card. 

The images used from Sandra Evertson's collection are found HERE!
