All Spots and Dots #365

Distress Stain

I love this fun technique.  Take your Distress Stain and get them flowing well on your craft mat and then using a bit of speed and pressure, splodge them down onto your card to get these fab splats.  Its a great technique to use to create kids cards too.

Distress StainI then just doodled in each of the splats with a fineliner and added the words.  Don’t be afraid to have a go at putting on your own wording onto your artwork.  If you see my handwriting – it’s like an injured spider has limped across the page, but when I am doing lettering, I do a practice run on spare cardstock to work out how big a space I need and then just take it slowly when I write to get it as neat as I can.  A little random letter spacing is all part of the fun.  So that’s my challenge to you today – create something with your own lettering on – be brave – give it a try!

happy crafting



Vintage Car Tag #231

Crafty Individuals STamp

Today’s creation has a vintage feel.  This is one of the new stamps in stock from Crafty Individuals and the fabulous guys at Crafty Individuals were generous enough to send me this stamp to create some samples with – lucky me! 🙂

I thought this would be great on a tag – but as it is in landscape form, I cut an extra large tag. (more…)
