Quixotic Paperie DT: Dare To Create Your Own Path


Hello everyone! I'm sharing a card I made using my Quixotic Paperie stamps by The Greeting Farm. For this one, I went a bit mixed media as I have fun doing;)


This cutie is Day Off Anya which I stamped on Make It Colour Blending Card (back in stock in packs of 10, 25 and 50). I coloured her with my beloved Copics of course then cut her out. For the background, I used watercolour inks on watercolour paper. I then created the path, using a stamp which comes from the Greeting Farm Dreamy Kit - perfect for art journaling and mixed media!!- and added one of the sentiments from the same kit - I stamped them in Versamark and embossed them in white. As a final touch, I stamped a few stars from my stash and embossed them in gold.

I've been feeling a bit blue these past days and felt the urge to do an art journal page - this is the 4th page in my journal, you can see the others HERE - and so I kept the shapes of the sketch in mind to create it. Here it is, featuring the gorgeous MayLeeDee I love so much!

I stamped Mayleedee on Make It Colour Blending Card, coloured her in Copics plus some Prismacolor pencils, and cut her out. For the background, I used a piece of Toga DP for the hill, stamped text on it and used Pitt Artist Pens to add shading. The sky was made with Distress Paints, Pitt Pens and Gelatos and I used two stencils with ink and embossing paste. I added Gold stickles for a bit of sparkle. I finished by the stickers and little golden heart.

Flashy Quixotic Paperie DT :)


Hello everyone! I think I am tired of the cold, grey weather... hence the need for some sun and flashy colours, I guess!!! I have used one my Tiddly Inks stamp sets available from Quixotic Paperie and went a bit colour crazy on this one ;)


I stamped Wryn from the Sweets for my Sweet stamp set on Make It Colour Blending Card, coloured her in Copics, then cut her out. The word SWEET is from the same set, stamped on Make It Colour Blending Card, coloured in Copics too and I cut out the letters. For the background I used watercolour paper covered in different acrylic paints (and Distress Ink for the ground) and a stencil from my stash with modeling paste for the sun. The dark spots and swirls were done with 2 different stencils too, dabbed with ink. And last little detail, I added white sticker letters to complete the sentiment.
