Washi tape accents for foil cards

I like making my own accents for projects . So I have tons of washi tape. And alot are gold foil type. So I added them to white card stock. Then just ran my die cuts threw.

Add strips of washi tape
Add dies and cut out

Pretty shapes

and your accents match your card…

letter press cards

ink up your metal stamp die, place in Go press, add a couple paper shims and run through your big shot.. deep impresses the inked plate into your paper. looks wonderful.

Rubber stamp background

Rubber stamped the background paper with clear ink or verse mark then embossing powder and HEAT WITH YOUR HEAT GUN. Then run through your Go Press.

This is a different horse I made, couldn’t find a photo of the all purple background that I made For Michelle for her birthday, she loved it anyways.. This is the third one I made each is always a bit different as I can never find the same books to repeat images.some of the reigns are made of velvet papers, black… really eye catching. buckles are from photos of lady’s purses. Its really fun love this… THANKS to all my friends for giving me their magazines to use in my art……

A bit of the 50’s

She only took me 2 days , it’s hard to believe I must be getting better at this craft ,or I am skipping details. anyways I love her, ………………so shes done… I love tearing the paper’s and seeing things appear , at first they look kind of undone and not right . But the good thing about this  art is if you don’t like the results you can always tear up more paper and cover up the mistakes….. oh wait there are no mistakes only happy findings………

Mr. Duck torn paper art.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This was inspired by my nephew TEDDY… He used to carry a stuffed Mr. Duck every where he went.. Hard to believe , He is all grown up now……  I am enjoying tearing papers and fitting them like puzzle pieces. its a slow long process . The best part of this is if you don’t like something you can always glue an other piece over the one you didn’t like…. added some mulberry paper to fluff him up some…..
