A Piece of Altered Art

Retro Cafe Art Galler is having a contest. The contest is to create a piece of art for Valentine's Day art using at least one item that they sell in their store. I created this item with Gold Stickles surrounding the diamonds. I started with a basic canvas from Michaels and added some watercolor primer to create a surface for some Distress inks and Starburst stains. I added a nice pile of embossing powder and stamped with a Tim Holtz stamp in the top corner. I used some Basic Grey rub-ons, gold ink, Jolee's stickers, a stencil, acrylic paint, Prima flowers and some charms covered in Lindy's embossing powder. The letters are from a DCWV stack.

If anyone is interested this piece of art is for sale.

Tag! You're It!

The DT Challenge over at Bombshell Stamps this month is a tag challenge. I created this one here with some scraps I had lying around (except for the tag) and the Butterfly Queen stamp set. I used a no-line technique for the butterflies, coloring them in with water color pencils.
