Here is a quick and simple card for you using the DecoArt Media Acrylic Sprays.

Spray the Primary Magenta through Giovanna's Doilie mask over a sheet of thin white card.  Add splashes of Orange and Primary Yellow.

Cut a section to go on a card.  Spray some Burlap with Primary Magenta and glue it over the patterned card, tucking it around the sides.  Attach scraps of the patterned card to 3 hearts from the Hearts mini's , cut out and glue to the burlap as shown.

Thank you for looking today, Karen xxx

Dreamer Shrine

Dreamer Butterfly Crown Shrine by Dana Tatar for Tando Creative
Hi! Dana here today sharing the Shrine I altered for the Spray Ink theme this week. I started this project by priming both sides of all the pieces of the shrine with a white spray primer. Next, I spread DecoArt White Modelling Paste over the stencil from the Nathalie Kalbach Fashion Dame Rubber Stamp Set onto the outer sides and roof of the shrine. Once the paste was dry, I sprayed the same pieces with a silver mist. Finally, I inked the edges with several colors of chalk ink and assembled walls of the shrine, holding the pieces together with hot glue.

Next, I spritzed the inside of the shrine with yellow mist. I used hot glue to attach a weathered metal butterfly, ornate metal oval, and blue gemstone to the back wall of the shrine. I added some silver rhinestone trim and a sticker to the base of the shrine.

I finished this piece by gluing on the roof pieces and topping it with a metal crown.

Anything Goes - Sunbeam Mixed Media Board

Sunbeam Mixed Media Board by Dana Tatar

Hi! Dana here toady sharing the Mixed Media Board I altered for the Anything Goes theme this week. I primed my board with DecoArt White Gesso. Once that was dry, I used a spatula to spread on blue, silver, and pink paint that was very close to being dried up completely. This old paint was a fun way to not let my supplies go to waste and also create some cool texture at the same time!

Next, I spread more chunky paint over the Kaz Boughton Dotted Star Mask. I topped the sun with a chipboard circle from the Andy Skinner Industrial Elements Set that I colored with liquid inks. I finished this board with some black and white doodles and a hand-written quote.

Anything Goes By Dee

Hi everyone Dee here today with my post for the week.
I have a tag for you with lots of Andy skinner,
Stamponique & Stampendous Stamps,
Tando stencils also lots of lovely
Deco Art paint.
I used a size 10 tag and coloured it with Dioxazine PurpleSap Green,
Phthalo Turquoise fluid acrylics.
Using the same colours I stamped onto the tag with Andy's
STEAMPUNK, Industrial & Stampendous marks sets. I stamped
these randomly and layered it up until I was happy
with the effect.
I also used  Titanium White to stamp onto the tag.
Next a little play with glitter paste one a viva one and the
other a cosmic shimmer paste put through Tando
stencils randomly placed.
I painted the stamponique image with a watery wash of the above colours.
I hope you have all enjoyed my post today slightly different to
my normal style.

Anything Goes Continued!!!

Today I have a mans card for you.  There is no chipboard involved but I used the stamps and stencils that we sell...

Lightly dry brush some Quinacridone Gold over the Kraft Card and when that is dry do the same with Cobalt Turquoise and a little Primary Magenta.  When dry overstamp with Nathalie Kalbach's MARKS stamp in Archival Black.  Dab some white acrylic through the Mini Mask Numbers as shown.
Stamp the eye from Andy Skinners Curiosity stamp set using Archival black and colour in (I used the same colours as before but watered down)  Cut out and attach to the centre of the base using a sticky pad.  Dry brush some white acrylic around the outside.  Attach the panel to a white card base.
Thank you for taking a look today, take care, Karen x

Chipboard book cover with Irit: Anything goes week

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to new Anything goes post.
Today I am going to share  my new chipboard mini book cover made with bare Tando chipboards and Mixed Media DecoArt products.

 First I need to say that the background mask is not really a mask but a die I used for the texture paste as I wanted something small and didn't find the small Tando mask in my pretty large stash.So I used the very old metal die and added the DecoArt texture paste over it.
Then I painted the inside and outside of the book cover with a mix of Media line paint and added the small book plate over the cover.
Fun metals and flowers cluster was added for the interest to the cover.

 Here are some close- ups to the painted , stencilled and painted cover.

I decided to stay in grey- blue and purples and to make it vintage dark in just three colors.

Metal pieces, small chipboard plate, fabric and paper flowers were also painted into the matching colors.
