Flaming Hearts frame and Coquille ring.

Hi everyone welcome to here.
I finished the Sandra's Flaming Hearts what I was making before hospitalization and quite big coquille ring by Coquille

Flaming Hearts frame using 4x4 wooden frame, I wanted cobalt blue on the heart and to finish the whole with a blue gradation.


The coquille ring made yesterday. At first I thought about making something accessories with this shellfish,  I planned a bracelet, necklace and ring but I decided to ring from the size. It was a bit big for a ring but I thought it was fun. 
I made it close to a shell color but one more thing I would like to have a bright color. 




Thank you so much stopping by see you soon!!

PaperArtsy 2018 # ATC with ZA Sneak Peak



Hi everyone, Etsuko from Japan with you today, and I'd like to share with you some ATCs using new release stamps of our fabulous designer Elena Guzinska (Zinski Art). I love the Zinski Art characters and collage art techniques. I played with cute characters with same theme 'baking' on the small ATCs. For now, I cannot show you the stamps in full, but enjoy this taste of what is to come in just a few more sleeps!

' A happy day of spring'
I used stamps are ZA22, ZA23 (Happy day) and ZN26. Infusions are lemoncelloA Bit Jaded and Magenta.


'Valentine's Cupcake'
I wanted to make simple background using clear embossing powder and some of Seth's new paints. The stamp is ZN26 and Dust TealHaystack, all this with Seth's new paint set and Snowflakes.


 'Non stop crazy  bird'
I used ZA22, ZN25 stamps using HaystackSugar Plum,  Spanish Mulberry and Snowflakes Fresco Acrylic Paint on the top layer. And I using a tear off old map, some stamps, Seth's new paint set and Snowflakes Fresco paint and Lemoncello Infusion on the background.

'Creating ideas in cute polka dot pants' 
Cute stamps are SA22 and SN25.  The colours used Sugar Plum, Seth's new paint set, Haystack and Snowflakes Fresco paint also I using kraft paper to the background.


I really enjoyed making these ATCs. Given this project and using Zinski Art stamps has brought me great hope and I will try and learn a lot this year too!! This time I mixed up parts and collaged over background, but next time I will make using original design for the Valentine's card and Birthday card with the same colours combination.

Zinski Art stamps are very cute and unique, i think that various designs will be possible if you change colours and techniques. And during use you will also create Zinski Mania! Thank you so much joying with me, I'm very happy if you like my ATCs. See you soon!! 

Much love

PaperArtsy blog #Topic RUSTY EMBLEM with EAB

Hi everyone, it's Etsuko happy with you todayand I'd like to share with you ......

This time I put Alison's fabulous new stamp in the emblem and decorated with frame. And I made iron rust and patina with Fresco Paints. It is not so difficult to make patina but it was difficult to resemble iron rust, I added micro beads as a supplement.



I used Alison Bomber's EAB05 quote stamp

I wanted to give rust and winter atmosphere with simple color inside this frame.


I painted Smoked PaprikaBrown Shed, Blood Orange, Chocolate PuddingMud Splat and little Black Dress over and over on the white paper.


Then I embossed   Scrapcosy's ESC09 frames using 'seafoam white' embossing powder.



Next I made emblem stamped with Scrapcosy's ESC09 using  Apoxie clay. This clay becomes like a resin when it dried and it can make fine details. 
I made a patina on the emblem using Hey Pesto, Green Olive, Captain PeacockChocolate Pudding and Little Black DressFresco Chalk Paints and finished it with Treasure Gold. Also I made crackle using Space CadetChalk and Crackle Glaze on the white card for the back ground.


I wanted to need some dimensional pieces to the emblem. Then I decided to make on white holly leaves using  Scrapcosy's ESC07 by Green Man,Olive Tree infusions and white embossing powder.


Finally I made the wintry background using Scrapcosy ESC07 stamp, and Distress Inks: Iced Spruce OxideBroken China Oxide, Vintage Photo ink, clear crack paste and micro beads.


And here is the finished sample. I used an Alison Bomber quote featured on the central emblem.


And I also made a couple of tags, also using Alison's Stamps
Eclectica {Alison Bomber} Set 03 as well as Set 05 featured at the top of this post.


I enjoyed mixing paint an ordinary way but there are various methods of rust and I am looking forward to seeing what you make. 

Thank you so much joining me and hope you like it.
