It’s Estelle’s  last week with us in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say a huge thank you for all of your creations over the past month. It has been a real pleasure to have you along with us :-)

Estelle made a card using multiple stamps to make a collage. She used Tim Holtz Floral Trims, Gothic Tapestry, Creative Blocks, and Stamper’s Anonymous Classics #5. She colored all the images and the background with Tim Holtz Watercolor pencils:  tattered rose, kitsch flamingo, and candied applepeeled paint, mustard seed and speckled egg.

Andrea sketched a girl for her bookmark and colored her in with Copics (YR04, YR07 and YR09) and Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers. She added some stamping with AALL & Create’s ABC CBA! and Franking stamp sets and collaged in some patterned paper from Dina Wakley’s Collage Sparks 2.

Anna-Karin made a lemon butterfly tag this week. The butterflies were die cut with Tim Holtz Vault Boutique die set, as were the doilies in the background. The butterflies were die cut from Simon Says Stamp Glitter Cardstock and the sentiment with the new Simon Says Stamp Just a Note 2 die.

Barbara made a pair of tags using two Idea-ology Paper Dolls as the protagonist. She chose a vibrant color palette and painted with Ranger Distress Spray Stain: Salvaged Patina, Seedless Preserves and Fossilized Amber. For the focal points of both tags she decided on the new dies from Tim Holtz Sizzix’s Vault collection: Boutique, Watch Gears and World Travel. The Spots stencil and two stamp sets by Stampers Anonymous, Mr. Rabbit and Faded Type are her choices for the background

Cheiron created a card with pretty feminine leaves using the Simon Says Stamp Lush Leaves Wafer dies. She placed them on top of an alcohol ink background using Denim, Patina and Dijon alcohol inks. She splattered over her card with Gilded Foundry Wax. She added a sentiment from the Just a Note 2 dies.

Emma used an Etcetera Panel to create a feminine project using a Curio Frame and a Tim Holtz idea-ology Photomatic image as the main focal point. She used the Stampers Anonymous Floral Trims, Crochet Trims and Curiosity Shop stamp sets to add stamped imagery around the photograph.

Kath created cards with a feminine theme using 49andMarket Spectrum Gardenia Classic papers for the backgrounds, Sizzix/49andMarket Painted Pencil Butterflies stamps and dies and Hello You Sentiments, decorated with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Vault Boutique Thinlits and Idea-ology Snapshots Vol 2.

Macarena created a very delicate and bright card with some pastel rings made with Tim Holtz Halftone and Rings stamps set which she stamped with Tim Holtz Distress Lost Shadow Paint and after watercoloring the rings added some Hero Arts Collage Background Hero Transfers.

Maura created a tag celebrating the feminine mystique. She used Graphic 45 8×8 Imagine papers, edged some of the floral pieces with Simon Says Stamp’s Pawsitively Saturated Terracotta ink, added Tim Holtz Sprocket Gears and Watch parts, and since diamonds are said to be a girl’s best friend, the final touch was Simon Says Stamp’s Dazzling Clear Gems.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Stamperia Roseland 8×8 Paper on the background, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Idea-ology PAPER DOLLS PORTRAITS and Prima Marketing RUSTY METAL CLIPS Art Daily Planner.

Zoey used Floral Elements and Ledger Script to decorate her tag! She used Distress Mica Stain + Distress Archival Ink to stamp . To add even more interest to her background she used Splotches and Set60 Mini Stencil

So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
