* Vera Lane Studio: Painter's Palette


Hello!

Today at Vera Lane Studio there is a new release. It is part of the Arthur Avenue series and is called Painter's Palette. Not only do you get two digital stamp to colour, but you also get a pre-coloured digital collage version and two sentiments.

Here is what I made:


I used the pre-coloured version - super quick and easy to print, fussy cut and arrange on a card, tag or journal page. I decided to make a distressed oxide background to which I added some stamping and inked the edges. I placed Painter's Palette on foam pads and grounded her with washi tape strips. I also added collage elements (apartments, cloud and sunshine) from Fun College Sheet 3.

That's all from me for today.
I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. 
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!

  


Thanks for stopping by today.

* Vera Lane Studio: 'Scrap It' ATC Coins


Hello!

We have an ATC Coin swap on at Vera Lane Studio - in the facebook group.
The theme this time is Scrap It - a perfect opportunity to use those tiny bits of paper floating around on your desk!

Here are the coins I made:


I covered my 2.5 inch circles with gelli print scraps using Mod Podge to secure them down, and then I added some torn strips of washi tape. I inked around the edges in black and placed my Hair Day ladies, coloured with Copics, on foam pads for a bit of dimension. The words are chit chat stickers from Tim Holtz.



That's all from me for today.
I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. 
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!

  


Thanks for stopping by today.

* Vera Lane Studio: Puddle Jumps


Hello!

We have a new release today at Vera Lane Studio. It's the wonderfully quirky Puddle Jumps.

Here is the card I made:  


 My images are coloured with Copics and fussy cut. The girl and duck are popped on foam pads. The background is Distressed Oxides, stencilled over with raindrops and the edges stamped with textures from PaperArtsy. Some white paint spatters were also added. The sentiment was cut into strips, adhered directly to the background and outlined with a black fineliner pen.

Vera Lane Studio: Christmas in July


Hello!

At Vera Lane Studio this month we have a Christmas in July ATC swap. Here are the ATCs I made:

 
Santa's Little Helper is on his holidays.

 
Rudolf on vacation.

I decided to make a beach scene featuring two Christmas characters. Rudolf comes from the Rudolf digi set (available on request from Janet) and Santa's helper is from the Oh Happy digi set; the palm tree is from Aloha and the beach tent and sentiments are from Beach Love. All digi images were coloured with Copic markers and fussy cut. The background is a gelli print.

Rudolf              Oh Happy       
   
Aloha               Beach Love     
 

That's all from me for today.
I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane.

* Vera Lane Studio: Three Kings


Hello!

We're in mid July now. The weather here in the UK has been a bit cooler this last week and we did have a little rain on Thursday night. At the end of this week the schools break up for the summer holidays, so I hope the good weather continues. 
That being said, at Vera Lane this month we have the theme of Christmas in July.  It gives us northern hemisphere folk a chance to feel what Christmas must be like in Australia and New Zealand!

Janet has released a new digi set called Three Kings, and here is the card I made :


I made a Distressed Oxide gelli print for the background, using Mustard Seed for the sand and Wilted Violets and Faded Denim for the night sky. I added some stamping to the sand and the two side edges and inked all around the edges with Black Soot Distress Oxide.
The Kings are coloured with Copic Markers and popped on foam pads. I added some gold Sparkle Medium to the star and cut the sentiment into strips.
I only had 6 x 6 inch card bases, and my gelli plate is 5 x 7 inch, so I had to mat my background - I chose some gold card which adds a little shine.

That's all from me for today.
I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. 
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!

Gecko Galz: Enjoy the Journey 2


Hello!

We have a monthly challenge at the Gecko Galz blog and this month the theme is Enjoy The Journey. Please come along and join in the fun!

I made this fantasy fairy journey card with an adorable image from the Pixie Magic 2 collage sheet.


The papers are from the La Isla Bonita Paper Pack and the sentiment is from the Charming Words collage sheet. Glitter was added to the fairy wings, lantern and vines. I edged the papers, the image and the sentiment with Vintage Photo ink. Green card and orange dot paper are from my stash. 


•••

My next card uses an image from the Travel On collage sheet.


I teamed it with papers from the Lemonade Paper pack and black card from my stash.
