Alie's Guest Spot Continued

Hello everyone,

Last week I shared some great pieces from Guest Designer Alie Hoogenboezem-de Vries. This is the second batch of what she created. If you missed the first post you can find it on the right hand side under the label "Guest Designer". There's a little bio about her and 5 more pieces of her artwork!

A tag of white cardstock, coloured with red, yellow and orange Dylusions Spray Inks. After drying I used a flower stencil and sprayed some white Dylusions Ink on it. Stamped 6 large raindrops and made a flower of them. Coloured them with red and orange Kuretake markers. Handrawn leaves. Accents with a white gelly pen.

An idea while I was drinking a cup of tea... I used a little white envelope, cut out the text: Green Tea, from a real teabag. Removed the original label from the teabag and glued a handmade label on it. I also made an envelope from green cardstock with the same stamps (picture 2)
Used stamps from Designs by Ryn:
  • Raindrop Set - CM-T10
  • Leafy Branch - CM-F15

Pulled a white card through leftover inks on my craftsheet. Glued the card on 2 mm greyboard. After stamping I put a hole in the corner and added a bookring. (in this way I collect several creations together).

Put some black Bister on the white card and sprayed with water...the black Bister turns into several colours! Glued the card on lovely shiny cardstock.

Isn't that green tea set fantastic? I've never seen anything quite like it :) I hope you enjoyed the second edition of Alie's makes with my stamps. HERE is a link to her blog if you'd like to pop over for a visit. I'm sure she'd like that. Again, thanks SO much Alie :)

Bye for now!
