Anita used a Gel Press Gel Printing Plate with metallic acrylic paints and a mandala stencil for her art journal spread. She used a Sakura Micron Pen on a butterfly solid die cut for her focal element, and My Favorite Things Bitty Hugs and Kisses stamp with bright white WOW Embossing Powder for the sentiment.
Andrea made a regal tag cut out of Strathmore Black Mixed Media paper and using Studio Light’s Label and Moodles die set. She used some stars from Simon Says Stamp Scattered Stars Stencil and Mini Stars Die and made the sentiment using alphabet letters from My Favorite Thing’s Connected Stamp Set.
Anna-Karin made an Artist Trading Card this week. The stamps are from Tim Holtz Mini Ornates set and the crown was embossed with gold powder. To frame the card corners were die cut from gold paper using Simon Says Stamp Card Corners.
Barbara created a tag dedicated to the Queen using Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Exquisite, some pieces from Idea-Ology Keepsakes Ephemera, Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Pencils and Tim Holtz Idea-Ology 8 x 8 Paper Stash Etcetera.
Cheiron created a sparkly background with DIstress Mica Stains and lots of stamp sets including Handwritten Thoughts, Correspondence, and Halloween Doodles stamped in Distress Archival Ink over the sparkly background.
Lols made a sympathy card to send to the Royal Family using a Tim Holtz Flower Garden Stamp Set and Coordinating Die Set. For the background she dipped Watercolor Card Stock in Faded Jeans Distress Ink she then used a Roses Layering Stencil to add some leaves before adding some texture and glitter through a Dot Fade Stencil. She gold heat embossed the flower and sentiment and added some Gold Metallic Droplets and Gina K Quartz Sequins.
Macarena made a tag with the colors of British flag using Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain Prize Ribbon for the background. She embellished the tag with Tim Holtz Sizzix Feather colored in black and adding Distress Stickles Clear Rock Candy Dry Glitter.
