Naughty or NIce

I think this snowman is both! 

A new TIMI challenge already, it's December 2016!! 
It's Take A Theme: this time: 'Snow and Ice':
 Create seasonal makes, or use lots of white product!
Think gesso, embossing paste, white paint, embossing powders and glitters.
Remember to include rubber/polymer stamping on your project somehow, somewhere!
AND only one project in your post. 

The sponsor this time is Craft Box;  for more info see the challenge on the Craft Stamper website. 

I chose to use this cute snowman stamp from Stampotique.. it's got flair don't you think?
It doesn't need any color :) 

I am entering this in the challenge on 
1. Stampotique designers challenge - naughty or nice ...

It's fall / autumn !

This is a stencil print from leftover Nuance powder on the stencil from this post. 
I added 2 real leaves from a Ginko tree... to which I added some Nuance powder as well, and when still wet, heat embossed the wetness with clear embossing powder. 
I also sponged the edges with a distress ink. 
I added some with Nuance colored scrappers floss to finish it off.

Playing with Minx shimmering inks

Hi all, 
the Design Team of Art Anthology is
 featuring the Minx shimmering inks lately.
They're fun! 

So, I will be featuring them today as well.
They are great to make backgrounds for cards
or maybe for an art journal page
 (or a canvas, or a watercolor painting etc etc).

For now : 4 different ways to use the inks.
.. .. I hope to do some more in near future!

I've used the same colors for all 4 techniques.

For step-by-steps of all 4 techniques,
please see the Snapguide at the end of this post!


1. Using household wrap to create gorgeous shimmery effects.

2. Making a print with Minx inks on a gelliplate.

3. A brayered background with the leftover inks from technique 2.

4. Making a background with Minx and salt crystals.

Check out How to Use Minx Inks to Create Backgrounds - 4 Techniques
by Art Anthology on Snapguide.

Also check the snapguide for all the supplies I've used.

That's it for today, thank you so much for stopping by again!
I hope that I have inspired you to create something pretty !
See you!

The mask/stencil is a new design from me with Magenta. Yes, the duo is in two sizes, but it's 2 masks ánd 2 stencils! 

The background is a gelliprint with Nuance powders. 
I sponged over the flower mask with red and green distress inks to make the  flower pop. I added accents with a black and white acrylic marker. The script has been stamped and heat embossed in white.
