Our new challenge for May at Mixed Media Mojo is celebrations with a wedding twist! I had originally planned to make a cake card but changed direction when a friend saw a Zombie Easter Tag I had made for my sister. She wanted to know if I could make a Zombie Wedding Invitation so I came up with this and this is for our challenge!
I love the Tim Holtz Zombie die that I used for this project! It is the die that just keeps on giving!
So for the April Challenge at Mixed Media Mojo, the theme was Spring with Umbrellas as the twist! I am a lover of all things Halloween and had some Dyan Reavley skull stamps that were just calling out to be used! So what better way to use them but in a garden with some spring showers! So let's get started!
I started with a #10 tag and the new Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks! I love how they look and I used Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick, Broken China, Cracked Pistachio and Fossilized Amber. Then I took a stencil and made some swirls and dots over the colors. A light mist of water helped to activate the oxides.
It took my Dyan Reavley stamps and used the flowers and skulls to stamp images onto the tag. I used the umbrella from the Tim Holtz Umbrella Man. A little trick, you can mask off parts of a stamp so that they don't get ink on them. I stamped in Distress Archival Black Soot Ink.
I then added the rain drops with a rain drop stamp from Red Rubber Stamp! The tag was finished with Distress Black Soot ink around the edges and Voila! Skelly Flowers in the rain! Happy Easter!
I recently got some new product and had to share! Dina Wakely Scribble Sticks which are pigment in stick form. NO wax and they write over acrylic paint which is great for all projects. Plus when used in water, the create a beautiful watercolor effect. You can even wet a stamp, color it with a scribble stick and get an awesome watercolor looking stamp !!! I also got the new Tim Holtz Farm Stamps and I had to use the cow stamp! I love cows and there are still a few around where I live! So feeling a little groovy and wanted some multicolored cows! Moo!
