Vampire


Hello everyone and welcome to our new
  Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge which is very scary this week 
due to HALLOWEEN/SPOOKY theme!


Just remember that you can become a random winner of $50 voucher
and spend it having fun at Simon Says Stamp Store


I am totally NOT a halloween person, I don't make such projects, 
we don't celebrate this holiday in Poland and I am panic at spiders :-)
So it was a real challenge for me to make something like that.

Finally...

Let me introduce you to Mr. Thomas F. Little...
A very known vampire No.13 on the most wanted list.
Finally he was found, caught and put down, you are all safe now!

Yes, he's inside there!
Scroll down if you dare...!



Ok, now when he's down there in the cage, fixed with wires, 
I can show you more pictures and close -ups :)

I made this cage completely from zero by cutting a very thick cardboard, 
adhering all the walls together and embellish with Tim Holtz Crowded Attic papers all around, I also added a ribbon to can close it up. 


Then I just placed inside some pieces of red and black lace, glued them to the bottom of the cage and to the walls. 
I distressed the picture with sand paper, made holes for the wire, 
placed it throught them the way it looks like it keep him attached.


Then I played with blood here and there, that was the most funny part!
I am quite (or very) spooky person and it would scare me to death in real
but I even managed to place a spider on his hat! I am soooo strong :D



Mr. Little wishes you all a very Happy Halloween!

Find Magic


I got inspired by this year's Autumn more than I supposed.
I am so in awe with this warm and colorful shades of browns, reds and oranges.
I made the Art Journal spread with a specific garden :-)
I think there is a magic absolutely everywhere, depends on the way we look at things, nature, machines, lansdcapes, industry... 
I found a mistery magic in a mechanical flowers :-)

Stars



Hello there! Here comes another Monday and our brand new challenge:
STARRY NIGHT which means we'd love you to show us stars. 


Don't forget you could be a random winner of $50 voucher 
and spend it at the Simon Says Stamp Store


I made a very colorful and 3D card full of stars.
Folding the stars is not my hobby but it's really worth the effort. 
Just take a look at some steps I took to make this card:


First I cover my base of watercolor paper with the crackle opaque paste 
through one of ma favorite stencil - SSS Extra Large Dots.
I heat dried it just because I'm not a patient crafter at all, lol. 
Whatever, the result is cool enough and the crackles are perfect. 
Then I covered the base with blue metallique  paint and 
added some touches of blue distress inks. 
Finally I highlighted the dots with my absolutely fave old silver wax.

The stars were cut from a watercolor paper and colored with distress oxides.
Then I splashed them with water to get an uneven color surface.
After folding them I placed some 3D dots in the center of each 
and glued them to the base leaving them a bit movable. 

The moon was cut from a bigz die, covered with sand paste, 
then with silver modeling paste, black paint and old silver wax. 
Isn't the texture fabulous? This is how I imagine the moon surface :-)
