Wednesday Women Guest Designer Wanda Hentges

Welcome to Wednesday Women!

It gives me great pleasure to introduce a very talented
Guest Designer Wanda Hentges.
Wanda has a way to use color and her creative style really stands out.
She has been stamping since 1999. 
She says she
 loves that you can do sooooo much with stamps and supplies
 in whatever style you feel like that day
whether it is grungy, elegant, distressed, bright....
whatever, the list goes on. 
Stamping also lead me to jewelry, book binding, altered art, 
and one day hopefully I'll tackle an art journal.
I've been married to a wonderful man for 28 years
and we have 3 fabulous children,
a girl out on her own and 2 teenage boys at home.

Pic #1 – Cut a piece of Clearly For Art large enough to stamp the bottle on it.  Stamp the bottle with jet black ink.  Heat the ink until dry.  Cut out the bottle and cut off the top.  Heat the bottle and shape so that it is rounded.
Pic #2 – Stamp paintbrush with jet black ink 3 times onto grungepaper.  Cut out, punch hole in handle with crop-a-dile, ink with distress ink, wrap with foil tape, create lines in tape with metal tool. 
Pic #3 – Stamp heart onto matching Art Part by inking the stamp with jet black, laying the stamp face up, and pressing the Art Part piece to the stamp.  Ink heart with barn door Stain, dry, and coat with rock candy Stickles by squeezing some onto the heart and then spreading it out with your finger.

Pic #4 – Ink frame and scallop borders with vintage photo Stain and dry.  Then so it is darker ink again and dry.  Stamp all pieces with jet black ink.  Stamp dots background onto as much of the frame as it will fit.  Stamp remainder of frame with other background.  Stamp large scallop border with dot background.  Stamp small scallop border with other background.   
Pic #4
Pic #5 – Stamp ink bottle onto matching Art Part with jet black ink.  Ink bottle with barn door Stain.  Stamp matching label onto white cardstock with jet black, cut out, and ink around edges with pumice stone.  Attach to bottle with Glue & Seal.
Pic #6 – Ink Flourish Art Part with wild honey Stain.  Stamp dots randomly over piece with spiced marmalade covering flourishes with a scrap of paper so they aren’t stamped.  Using coffee ink stamp circle background over top half of piece and the crosshatch background over bottom half again covering the flourishes so they don’t get stamped.  Ink edges, including flourishes, with vintage photo ink.  Stamp saying with jet black ink.

Pic #7 – Stamp leaves twice onto grungepaper with olive ink, cut out, ink with bundled sage and peeled paint, stamp speckled background with olive.

Pic #8 – The paper towel was left over after a previous project.  I had used it to clean up excess color wash off my craft sheet.  It was so pretty that I decided to try it with some Clearly For Art after reading one of Wendy Vecchi’s blog posts.  I glued it to a piece of Clearly For Art using Glue & Seal, let it dry and die cut the flowers.   I’ve used some and others were still laying there waiting to be used… the colors were just right for this project so I used the small ones.

Pic #9 – Stamp the mini butterfly on grungepaper with jet black ink, cut out, ink with wild honey all over and barn door just on the edges of the butterfly, dry, add dots to the body with the Inkssential pen, dry, rub a little rock candy Stickles onto the wings. 

Pic #10
Pic #10 – Cut one leaf stem into 2 pieces.  Heat flowers, shape, and add brads to the centers.  Assemble all pieces as shown gluing everything with Glossy Accents except for the bottle, it was attached using small pieces of wonder tape.  Put black Enamel Accent dots over dots in saying and also add a row of dots to the top edge of background.  Cut a piece of ribbon, rub on a little pumice stone ink, and tie around edge of frame trimming ends.
