Friday Feature - possibilities

Hi friends.  Melody here with your Friday Feature.  May is always a special month for me.  I have an anniversary, mother's day, and a birthday all within a week's time.  Among the gifts I received were some distress paints

I put some mowed lawn, salty ocean, and vintage photo distress paints on my craft sheet, and swiped a piece of white card stock through them.  After heat setting, I spritzed some water on the paint on the craft sheet and put the card stock in it again, dabbing a couple of times till I was satisfied.  I dried it and then die cut an arch with Arch Frame die and trimmed off the outer edge.  I also die cut a navy arch with the same die. 

I used some Tim Holtz stamps as well.  Two are stamped in jet black archival.  The third was stamped several times on the card base with salty ocean distress ink. 

I added some doodling on the card base with a black Pitt pen

I then inked only one of the pen nibs and stamped it next to the men.  I used a craft nib holder & nib to color the pen nib with salty ocean distress ink.  Then I painted some mustard seed distress paint on a piece of white card stock and cut out a candle flame.  I hightlighted the flame with distress markers and made the pen nib into a candle.  

Most of the products I used can be purchased from Outlaw Women Scrapbook Emporium

Thank you so much for stopping by. 


We love yours here.
