Canvas Corp Brand Crew: Hearts will never be practical postcard

Happy Valentines day! Or as I like to call it Happy single awareness day! I tried to make a anti-Valentine's day postcard, but I don't know if it actually is. lol

I started out with the black and ivory postcard from Canvas Corp. It actually comes in a 12x12 sheet with 6 postcards on a 12z12. I gave the postcard a good spray of the Chalkboard Polka dot pink (yes I do have some other colors of tattered angles besides this one But not many. I need more! LOL) When that was dry I used DecoArt Media black gesso and black texture paste with a hear stencil. I didn't get a nice and crisp when lifting the stencil ff the postcard, but I'm going with it.

While that was drying I went looking for anti-valentine day sentiments/quotes. This one is from the "Wizard of Oz" I printed it out and glued it on the postcard once everything was dried. It needed something else So I did some splots with Lady bug Glimmer glaze and black High Impact pint. I also went around the edge of the postcard with the black.

Canvas Corp Brand: Friendship gives you wings

Its almost Valentines day and  though I'm not big fan on the day, I made a tag using Tatter Angles and Canvas Corp brand products. 

I got a tag out of my stash. I took my Fiskars cutting mat and sprayed some Polka dot pink Chalkboard and Sterling Glimmer mist by Tattered Angles on to the mat (the smooth side) I took the tag and dragged through the ink. I let it dry for a few minutes. I then took a UmWowStudio heart stencil and sprayed the Sterling Glimmer mist on the whole tag. I wanted the hearts to drip some did, some didn't. After the tag dried completely (I don't have a heat gun anymore, mine died) I did some stamping with a small heart stamp with Picked raspberry distress inkpad. I took a circle plastic canvas and sprayed Its Black Glimmer mist on it. Again I wanted drips and again it failed me. I added some splots with the Java and Polka dot pink.

While the tag dried I had butterfly (from the Tatter Angles Mixed Media Origins wings 12x12) that  had painted with Ladybug Glimmer Glaze that I was going o use on something else. I deiced to use t on the tag.  I had a bunch of heart wood veneers I took one and painted it with the Java Glimmer Glaze. When that dried, I cut the butterfly wings and glued it to the back of the heart. and glued that to the tag. 

After looking online for Valentine quotes, I found a couple I liked and printed them. One I used for this tag. I glued it on the tag and went around the words with pen. I duid glue on another tag on the back of this one tio get it more sturdy. The top part of the tag I used some black lace trim that I got in my welcome kit. I stapled it on to the tag. I went around the edge with the black  High Impact paint.

CCB Crew February challenge: hot chocolate hugs

Every month there's a challenge over on the Canvas Corp Brand blog. Its a mood board with images to get inspired from. 

This is what I did from this months challenge

From the inspiration board you can see I was inspired by the colors and the hot chocolate. I used my Cameo 2 and cut the ht chocolate cup. The lid I used jack Frost Glimmer mist snd Strerling Glimmer mist for the sleave. I used my fiskars paper crimper (remember  that from back in the day) and crimped the paper. I also used that color Glimmer mist on the steam. The hearts I colored with Island Spring Glimmer Glaze. (there were 4 hearts but one disappeared.)

While that was frying I did the background on my journal page. The journal I'm using is the 7Gypsies starter journal in 5x7 in Kraft. Its a nice heavy cardstock. I first gessoed the middle of the page. Once that dried, I sprayed on the Jack frost Glimmer Mist, Sterling Glimmer Mist and a little pearl Glimmer mist. Letting the drip in some spots.

Once the background was dry, I put together the hot chocolate cup and glued it on the page. I found a sentiment on pintrest, typed it on my computer and printed it. cut and glued on the page.   I added some splatter with the sprays and also some of the white gesso. I finally went around the words with a black pen.
