Feathers of Fancy


  

Hi everyone! It's Fran here with you today sharing my first WOW! DT project with you. Excitement!

I'm a big fan of feahers so I fell in love with the Wow silicone mould and wanted to create a simple yet punchy card with it.

I started the background by inking a piece of card then I rubbed Wow's embossing ink pad over and added Iced Silver powder on top and melted.

For the resin feather I used a combination of Bluetiful and Black Ebony embossing powders which I mixed with Melt It powder in two seperate batches; Bluetiful  for the tip of the feather and Black Ebony for the bottom part.




I dropped some dots of the remaining black hot Melt It liquid onto my heat resistant craft sheet to make my own mini resin gems and aren't they just the cutest things?

Dimension was added to the card with a piece of Ice Blue foil which I adhered and rubbed Wow embossing ink. Royal Crush and Pearl White powders  were then sprinkled over and melted to create a 3D, metallic,molten surface.

A cotton doily received the same treatment with Ultra High Copper and Royal Crush powders.


The card was finished with a greeting from the Pick 'n' Mix stamps, stamping details around the edges of the card with stamps from the Sparkle & Shine set and some ink splats.



Have a creative Monday! Fran xx

Valentine's Card by Laurence Colling



Hello everyone, this is Laurence here and I am very excited  to share my first blog post.
Valentine's Day is in a few days and I wanted to create a card on that theme. The Wow buttons mould has a beautiful button in the shape of a heart  and was perfect to use on my project.
I first mixed Wow melt-it with WOW Pink Lady and WOW Cha Cha Cha to add a glittery effect (¼ teaspoon both) in a foil case. I hold the foil with a peg and started heating it under the the foil. When completely molten, I poured the liquid into the mould and waited until it had cooled down. It was very easy and quick embellishment. I had some liquid left and let drop a tiny quantity on my craft sheet to have my own "dots" that coordinate perfectly with the button.


I used watercolor paper and dilute watercolor with water on a separate piece of  plastic bag. Then I turned it over my card, gently pressed it down and moved it to have add more color on the left side of the card. When completely dried I placed a stencil and applied clear embossing ink onto the stencil. After having removed the stencil, I sprinkled WOW Opaque Bright White EP and embossed it. The sentiment is also heat embossed with WOW Opaque Bright EP and I left some paper around each word when I cut it out.

I hope you will be inspired and join our monthly challenge.

Martha Lucia Gomez

I was born in Colombia, but I live in Miami, USA. My first language is Spanish, which is why my blog is written in Spanish; but don’t worry, I have a translate button. I studied Social Communications and Journalism, but I've loved crafts forever. I used to work with metal jewelry, but one day I discovered stamps, ink and paper, and now it is my passion. I've realized that working with paper crafts is the best therapy.

I live with my husband and our two daughters. I divide my time between my family, my work in a Public Relations Company and my passions: my blog and crafting on various design teams. I love to create cards, 3D's and alter different projects because I love to learn new techniques.  I look forward to working on this Design Team and sharing my passion with all of you.

Susanne Rose

I'm Susanne Rose from Germany, mum of two lovely kids and a full time crafter and mixed media artist. I started painting with acrylics when I was about 15 years old. I took a break with "messing around" after my study because I started with photography and some graphic design. After my daughter was born, I became a scrapbooker and my passion started growing. Now I love creating cards, mini albums and different mixed media pieces. I am addicted to stamps, creative mediums, dies, colors and papers! My style is most of the time very colorful. I try to express my mood in everything I do. I am very proud to be part of this awesome and talented design team! I'm looking forward to inspiring other crafters with my creations featuring WOW! products.

Calm

Hi Everyone

This month at WOW HQ is anything goes, so I have taken inspiration from a fellow artist Lea DeCosta www.careandfeedingofartists.com and used her 'Serenity' words.


The words are 'Sometimes I forget that it is not what I put on paper that matters most, it is the 'putting' itself, the act of writing something down - making a mark.  The peaceful feeling I get from letting something go'

I started by taking the flower and meadow stamps from 'Make a wish' and 'ME Collage' and stamping onto white card stock with Versamark and heat set with clear embossing powder.  I then gently went over the images with distress inks.  The second layer is made of spray inks and placed on top while wet is sea salt.  This is left overnight  to dry and to cause the pattern on the card stock.  The third layer is alcohol inks onto glossy card stock then stamped with Versamark and heat set with ebony embossing powder.  The scroll at the top of the card is heat set with silver embossing powder.

This is my last post as a design team member.  I have had a wonderful time showing you my creations and being challenged by the monthly competitions.  You will see me return on occasions as a guest. So congratulations to the new design team members and I wish you well, keep crafting and inspiring others.

Take care
