Spirit of nature

I´m so happy to be one of the selected scrapper to present the new stamp collection from Stephanie Schütze designed by Whiff of Joy!

Welcome to the great Blog Hop of Spirit of nature!

On my LO I´ve played with the rose stamp and embossed it with a clear embossing powder. Such an lovely effect! There is a touch of pink in it, because I havent clean the stamp enough before I stamp :-)

On this canvas bookmark I´ve played with a brike wall stencil, modeling paste and H2o colors. As a highlight I used the stamps. I stamped the butterfly stamp on transparent paper and cut it out. The bird is stamped on white cardstock.

On this canvas I played a lot with stencils, moddeling paste, H2o colors and the stamps Spirit of nature.
I stamped all stamps on transparent paper and cut them out. After I glued them, I color them with Neoncolor II.

Here is the list of the fantastic artist from this Blog Hop:

I hope you enjoy the autumn. All the colors leaves, the fresh air with the beautiful smell. Yes, I love autumn! It´s the month of my birth! :-)
Illuminate the silence
Today I will share an example with you. An example with crackle paint and H2o colors on canvas. I´m really sorry, but the crackle do not his job, like i want! I wish it would make much bigger cracks. But well...
At first I color my canvas with gesso and put some old book pages and tissue paper on it.


After that I place my H20 colors in gold, red, blue and green on the left side. And some gold and black color on the right side.
Allow to dry thoroughly. And now I have put the crackle paint on it. This need much more time to dry.

If the mass is not completely dry, I pressed the white-painted chipboards into the crackle paint. Befor I have place the lamp, I have sprayed with Dylusions Spray a yellow point.
After dry I glue the black colored clock hands and the lettering.

I have used:

Two simple cards:

Instruction for feathers:
On watercolor paper I paint with my H20 colors in wide stripes in different colors. Stamp with the Feather stamp and emboss with clear embossing powder. Cut them out and ready!
I stamp with the Doily Stamp on white cardstock in white ink. Some golden splashes with colorshine from Heidi Swapp and black ink. Place a white feather and the colored embossed feathers, and finished was my card.
