For this card, I created the background by spritzing distress inks on an acrylic block and stamping on watercolour paper with the block. You can read more about this (and watch a video!) on this post by Jennifer McGuire over at TwoPeas. Then I stamped the happy dancer with Versafine black ink, and the sentiment with Versamark and Ranger Seafoam White EP. I used a Hero Arts doily stamp in the upper right corner, and a wee piece of plumber's foil tape (dry embossed and painted) in the lower left corner. This card was created for the current Art Journey challenge, which is to use tape, the Gingersnap Creations challenge (use Versamark), the Wee Memories challenge, which is "anything that is celebrated," in this case, WOMEN!) and the Craft Challenge, which is to use more than one fold.
I used the same distress ink technique for this next card, for the Papertake Weekly challenge (use three of a kind). These are some of the new Art Journey stamps. I LOVE this rose, and decided to try it in yellow for a change. I did some light shading with yellow chalk after the inks were dry, just to add a little more depth to some of the petals.

This last project is a wooden tray I altered. I painted it first with ordinary black acrylic paint. Then I applied gold leafing to all outside borders, over adhesive. I let that settle a little, then sprayed it with Krylon Matte Finish Spray to protect it the leafing. Then I paste embossed just part of the very large "All That Jazz" stencil LJ 853 on the front and back tray edges with black matte embossing paste. Finally, I stamped and gold embossed this sentiment rubber stamp from Quietfire Design on the inside bottom of the tray.
YET ONE MORE OPPORTUNITY FOR CANDY
