Jane DT - Autumnal Art Journaling


Today on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty Blog I am sharing a little bit of art journaling...

Often when I start art journaling I am not sure about where the page is going to go, so this time I began by choosing 3 distress oxide ink colours that I liked to create the base (fossilized amber, wild honey and spiced marmalade).  I added the colour a layer at a time by squashing the inkpad onto my mat then spritzing with water before pressing the paper onto it.
At this point I thought that the background looked like an autumnal morning so decided to go with that theme using beautanical elements and the same colours...
Next I picked three of the d'inkables and I have to admit that I went for my usual favourites!  Once the inks had been applied through the stencils I chose Wildflowers 1 and 2 stamps to create some floral interest with the distress oxide inks, then used the large teasel with Versafine ink and clear embossing powder.  I also added a sentiment onto the other side of the page...
It still felt like something was missing so I used one of the circle texture stamps to fill in some of the gaps.
Finally I added some details using a gold and a white uniball pen.

Karen DT - Skull with birds and feathers

Morning crafters

I'm back on the Buzzy Goings On At Bee Crafty Blog with a card I made using the gorgeous
Skull with Birds and Feathers. I absolutely love this image and it's so versatile xx

Also used
Life is good sentiment stamp
Kuretake clean colour pens

I stamped the gorgeous image in Smokey Grey versafine and coloured it in with my kuretake clean colour pens and a water brush
I stamped the sentiment in the same Versafine
This was matted onto rainbow mirri and set to one side
I stamped the image several times, onto white card, cut out some of the flowers, and coloured them in.
On a seperate piece of card,  slightly smaller than my card blank, I carefully inked up the flower on the stamp with Distress Oxide, and multi stamped it randomly,  to create a background.
This was matted onto rainbow mirri
My card was then assembled with the flowers being shaped and adhered with 3d foam pads

I hope you'll agree that this image can make a really pretty card and therefore has so much versatility

I'll be back again soon with another Bee Crafty make

Jane DT - Be Yourself


For my post today on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty Blog I thought I would create something a little different from my usual projects.  Even though I really love creating lots of layers in mixed media and art journaling, at times I also enjoy a bit of colouring and card making.

This week I have made a DL card using one of the Fashionette characters...

* I started by cutting my white stamping card to size then stamped the sentiment and Vera straight onto it using archival ink.

* Next I used pencils with a blending stump to colour the image, then added a bit of white and gold pen.

* Some pencil was also added at the bottom of the image to make sure she was not 'floating' on the card.

* Finally the card was matted onto black and adhered to the card blank.

The products used were:

* Fashionettes - Vera
* Wordage - Be Yourself

Thank you for looking and happy crafting!

Hello crafters xx

Hope you're having a lovely week

I'm back on the Bee Crafty blog today with a couple of cards using some of my Egyptian themed Inkables and Dinkables. Eye catching and unique 😊

Products used :
Inkable: Flying Horus
Dinkables: Horus Head, Lotus Vase,  Flying Horus, Triangle Lattice
Life Words 1 stamp collection
Egyptian Border stamp
Egyptian Vulture stamp
Distress Oxides : Fossilized Amber, Vintage Photo

I masked off a grid, and used Iced Spruce to create panels.
I then inked through my Dinkables with Victorian Velvet DO.
I added hints of the Triangle Lattice to each panel.
The words were stamped in Versafine and then I added more hints of the Triangle Lattice around the words

I blended the Distress Oxides through the Kestrel Inkable then added highlights with a white gel pen
The Vulture and WISDOM were stamped in Vintage Photo DO. I blended out some of the DO with a water brush
Holding the Border stamp in the palm of my hand, I stamped parts of it randomly in Fossilized Amber DO

I love these stencils. ..such focal points.

Many thanks for popping by and I'll be back again soon

  • Apply some of the Oxides to a blending mat, spritz with water and quickly dab the white square in it.  Dry with a heat tool.
  • Blend some Stormy Sky Oxide through the Dinkable randomly over the card.
  • Use Versafine to stamp the sentiment in the centre, then the texture borders and circles in each corner.
  • Stamp another texture circle in the centre of the black ones with Wilted Violet Oxide, and another texture border at the side of the black ones using Ripe Persimmon Oxide.
  • Mat this to the black card, and glue to the card blank.

Jane DT - Poisonous ATC's!


Today on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog I am sharing something a little bit spooky...

This project really designed itself as when I started although I knew I wanted to create a couple more ATC's for my collection (artist trading cards) I wasn't sure of the theme. 

I started by preparing both with white gesso for the base then went for a few different colours of acrylic paint.  I applied the paint using my fingers and when I had finished had a background of yellow, green and orange. 

Still not sure what I wanted to do next I flipped through my d'inkables collection and came across the spider's web.  When I looked at the colours and the stencil I knew what I wanted to do! 

So next I stencilled with purple acrylic paint through the web d'inkable...

As this was now becoming a Halloween theme I looked at what I had available in my 'All Hallows' stamp collection and couldn't resist using the poison bottle which is one of my favourites. 

This was stamped out a few times and embossed with fine black powder before being cut out and coloured with watercolours.  I decoupaged a couple of the pieces to create extra dimension and then added them to the ATC's...

To add the finishing touch I chose the sentiment from the Art Stamps Nevermore Raven set and cut it into pieces to be read across both the ATC's.  A touch of black pen was added for a bit of shadowing and also smudged across the card to create a more grungy look.

The products used were:

* All Hallows - Poison Bottle;
* Art Stamps - Nevermore Raven Set
* D'inkables - Spiderweb

I hope you have enjoyed my slice of spookiness and thank you for looking.

Happy crafting,

Jane xx

Karen DT - Life is good

Hello lovely crafters xx

It's my turn over on the Bee Crafty blog today and I'm sharing a card I made using the beautiful Mandala 3 Inkable. I love these, so versatile and can be used with other stamps etc, or as a stand alone xx

Also used:
Inspirational Words 2 - Life is good 
Gold embossing powder
Distress Oxides 

To create this sample I applied Versmark ink to the Mandala Inkable then laid a piece of card over it and rubbed my hand across it firmly.  Make sure you always keep one hand on the card at all times, as you rub firmly with the other 
I heat embossed the Versmark image with gold embossing powder 
The Distress Oxides were blended all over the card. I used Abandoned Coral, Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey
Whilst the ink was still wet I spritzed water through parts of the Honeycomb Dinkable then dabbed with a paper towel. This gives a subtle bleached effect
I inked the Distressed Harlequin Dinkable with Abandoned Coral DO
The sentiment was stamped in Versmark on to black card, and heat embossed in gold
The card was assembled to complete today's make

Many thanks for popping by and I'll be back next Thursday with another Bee Crafty make

Lorre-Anne DT - Happy Birthday

Hi everyone, I'm back to share my weekly Bee Crafty DT project with you all and I've got the Steampunk Stories stamps out again.


What to do
  • Trim the card blank down to a 6" x 4" tent fold card.  Cut white card slightly smaller than the card blank.
  • Put some Fossilized Amber, Frayed Burlap and Bundled Sage on to a blending mat, spritz with water and drag the white card through it.  Dry with a heat tool, then repeat until you get the look you want.
  • Randomly stamp the crackle with Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide.
  • Stamp the Barometer and sentiment using Ground Expresso Oxide.
  • Glue this to the card blank.

That's my project complete for this week, I'll be back soon with another.
