Gotcha!


Hey there, it's Donna here with a little project I just cooked up. Gotta say I had fun with this one thinking outside the box (or should I say inside the box top?  LOL) using Earth Spirit, available HERE in Rick's Etsy Shop. In my project, he's supposed to look like the mound of dirt on a freshly covered grave prior to putting down the sod. (Okay, I'm one sick puppy, but you all knew that already.)



Here's a closeup of the fab Earth Spirit, colored with Copics.  I printed him twice and fussy cut and popped his hands so he could hold the calla lily he stole from the casket spray and the computer generated sentiment.



Here's a side view of my little grave site.  The grass is a Martha Stewart punch and the headstone is a Spellbinders Gothic Arch layered with a Cuttlebug die. I had a ball with this one, but wait 'til tomorrow.  Smeared Ink's 31 Days of Halloween begins and the EDT for RSD is participating each day right here on Airless Chambers.  Don't miss the 31 days of FUN!

Hi all,

The inspiration for my card today came from poem by Ella Wheeler-Wilcox 


Love's Coming

She had looked for his coming as warriors come,
With the clash of arms and the bugle's call;
But he came instead with a stealthy tread,
Which she did not hear at all.
She had thought how his armor would blaze in the sun,
As he rode like a prince to claim his bride:
In the sweet dim light of the falling night
She found him at her side.
She had dreamed how the gaze of his strange, bold eye
Would wake her heart to a sudden glow:
She found in his face the familiar grace
Of a friend she used to know.
She had dreamed how his coming would stir her soul,
As the ocean is stirred by the wild storm's strife:
He brought her the balm of a heavenly calm,
And a peace which crowned her life.

I used one of Ricks hat ladies called  please don-t feed my hat.




She spent so much time dreaming about the perfect man, she didn't see the one right in front of her, 

Hope you like her and please check out all the beautiful hat ladies in the zibbet shop.

Steampunk Love with Lady B

Hi!  Lady B here to share some Steampunk love.
Pictured below is a Steampunk make using an image from Rick St. Dennis' Zibbet shop.  Click on the image to enlarge.  Please forgive the horrendous water marks, but sadly they are needed these days.  

The image used in the project above is "Angela the Assassin" and is available for purchase here.  She was coloured with Copic markers on Copic X-Press-It blending card then she was fussy cut and set aside.  I buy my card in the states from Amazon and Oozak.

The background is canvas board and the rocky outer portion is an altered picture frame.

I used the following DecoArt products:
  • Media Gesso in white mixed with Prussian Blue fluid acrylics.
  • Fluid acrylics in Prussian Blue, Titanium White, Transparent Yellow Iron Oxide, Carbon Black, Dark Grey value 3, Medium Grey value 6 and Quinacridone Gold.
  • Modeling paste 
  • Texture sand paste mixed with media fluid acrylics in Dark Grey and Carbon Black.  This saves a lot of time in painting the base coat :)
  • Metallic Lustres in Champagne Ice, Copper Kettle, Iced Espresso, Gold Rush, Black Shimmer and Silver Spark.  The Lustres were applied to the paper gears I designed and cut with my eClips cutting machine.
  • Media Soft-Touch Varnish
  • Brush and Stencil cleaner
Other Supplies:
  • Canvas board.  Mine was 8" x 10"
  • "Angela the Assassin" from Rick St. Dennis
  • Colouring items of choice (pencils, markers, paint, etc.)
  • Kraft Card or card of choice as well as paper or card to print your image
  • Printer
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Darice embossing folder "Steampunk Gears" or any other embossing folder of choice
  • Die cuts or cutting machine
  • Pop dots or adhesive of choice
  • Old frame to alter (I used a frame that holds an 8" x 10" picture)
  • Art knives, metal or plastic.  I used plastic.  Heck, you can even use plastic eating utensils.
  • Paint brushes, palette, water, kitchen towels, baby wipes, etc.  Your normal painting stuff.

Thanks for looking!

Be You ....

... Hello and Good Morning!  It's Deborah here with you today - I've made an art jouranl page using a couple of Rick's fabulous images:


I adore this Hat Lady - she's called Please Don't Feed My Hat - and you'd better watch your fingers.  The hat has big teeth!!  I've also used the wonderful Steampunk Rose Bug - maybe that's what the hat would like to eat, but I think it would be happier with your fingers :)  You can find full details of the page on my blog here

You can find both images at Rick's Zibbet shop - along with over 1,000 more images!!

Voodoo Who Do

Hello Fiona R here today to show you an altered Book I recently made. I used an image from Rick St Dennis MFA's Voodoo Digi Sheet as my focal design point for the front cover. I created my cover design in photoshop, printed out and attached to the book covers and lined inside with black card to cover the joins. I then printed my main image and coloured with copics, fussy cut and attached to a background. An Arch frame was die cut using chipboard and a rusty treatment applied. The main image was attached to the frame and glued onto the front cover of the book. Paper roses and a banner were then added to the bottom of the frame.
 

 
Thanks for looking.
Fiona R.
