creating with AC duct tape

Look what you can do with this.  I created a little embossed flower to put on a card.  I used my cricut (small) machine to cut out the flower then I cut a square of card stock and glued the flower to it.  then I cover it with the AC duct tape. then I rubbed the tape and the embossing starting happening.   Then I used acyclic brown and yellow and spread the paint over the square let it set for a little bit then rubbed some of it off, and this is what I was left with.

I was inspired to do this from the make an take I did at the local scrapbook store the night before.

Fleur de lis make and take

last night (04/20/12) went to the local scrapbook store (scrappin friendzee) with a friend.  Enjoy the visit with all the ladies there.  To my surprise the owner, Jackie had a make an take for us to do.  This fleur de lis was made using the AC duct tape, die cut fleur de lis and embossing plate, then we rubbed different shades of alcohol inks and put on a little flower embellishment isn't that so cute.

Gate with flower - Copic coloring

Thought I would share with everyone on how I colored this gate with flowers using Copic Markers.  I am a beginner and I am sure there is lots for me to learn. But wanted to share just the same.

Add RV19 - I dotted each little flower leaving some white space.
 Add RV06 color the whole flower with this color going over the RV19.

Add G24 - to the leaves again just dotted to the leaves leaving white space.

 Using YG03 color in some grass - color just enough to there should be white area  in the grass.  Then use G24 and do short strokes as if you are making blades of grass (there is a picture missing but you will see the effect below).  Then use 0- blender to blend in the grass.

Ad E44 on the stones

add W5 to the stones but do not go over the E44 area in the stones.
Add W3 and color over both the E44 and W5 on the stones.  Add W5 to the gate.
Add BG10 to the fence coloring over the W5 area and extending the BG10 into the white area, leave lots of white uncolored on the fence.
Add E13 around the edges of the stone to form a path.
Add B34 all around the fence and flowers and the one side of the circle on the upper part of the gate.
Add B32 to form the rest of the sky coloring over the B34 area.  You will have to use the B34 again to darker some of the areas.
Then use a 0 blender and color over the B32 and B34 area to soften the sky area.

finished image.  Hope you enjoyed.
