Maria's Second Guest SpotNext, I've got some beautiful art to share with you from Maria Daeyaert from Belgium. I featured her work a couple of weeks ago in this space and am back with some more for you! This time with a little info on how she made each piece. If you would like to pay her a visit here's a link to her blog: http://marjasknutsel.blogspot.be
In this piece Maria used Flowing Branches (stencil) and Celtic Start Set (stamps) as ornaments. Doesn't the white glow around them have a magical feel to it? Love how this turned out!Maria's Process for this Piece:
"The background was made with some Glittermists from Tatterend angels (coffee shop, walnut gold, sunflower, bronze , delphinium) and some salt. For the tree I used the tree mask and memento dye ink -Rich cocoa, the stars are stamped with versa mark and embossed with bronze embossingpowder , to make some structure I used embossing enamel - aged scarlet from stampendous. To give it some accents I took my white gelly pen "sharpie" and the text stamp is from CB!!!"
Three Leaves Set (stamps) falling from Flowing Branches (stencil)
Maria's Process for this Piece:"I made the second card with dyllusions ink. First I spread some water all over my card then I used yellow , orange, green and red on it and let the colours blend together a little bit. I put some salt here and there and let it air dry. I then took the tree mask and with a baby wipe I took the colours out of the tree in the background!!!(2 times) When everything was dry I took the mask again and placed it in the middle of the card. To colour it I used some dark brown distress ink starting in the middle. To make the other smaller trees I used some of the smaller branches from the stencil. Lastly, I stamped the beautifull leaves with versamark and used some golden embossing powder. After melting the powder with my heat tool I used a very fine black pen and went around the leaves to give some black accents."
In the background of these tags Maria's used Fiddlehead Set (stamps) and Three Leaves Set (stamps). Notice, she's also used Flowing Branches (stencil) as the flower stem. Nice touch!
Maria's Process for these Tags:"These two tags are made with Dylusions ink. I used black and bronse embossing powder for the leaves and golden embossing powder with Fiddlehead Set. The tree mask is used as stalk for the flower"
Last but not least, Here's an underwater scene using Spiral Shell, Clownfish, Kelp and Rising Bubbles (stamps).
Maria's Process for this Piece:
The card is made with bister powder and water. I stamped Kelp with some distress inks for the background. Wanda and Spiral Shell were stamped with memento black and coloured with watercolour pencils, copics and watercolour paints."
Thank you so much to Maria for Guest Designing with my stamps and stencils! I've really enjoyed seeing your art so far :) All inventive and vibrant works! I'll be showcasing more of her work soon.
Thanks to everyone else for stopping by to see what I'm up to. Wishing you a wonderful rest of the week. I would love for you to leave me a comment and I am sure Maria would love a visit as well if you have the time: http://marjasknutsel.blogspot.be

And Maria made beautifull cards to see again. The celtic ornaments really do have that magical feel to it, very well done. The second card reminds me of an Autumn breeze (or storm), with the golden leaves swirling around. Gorgeous :)
I also like the summer-like tags and the underwaterworld, great effect of the background (the bister powder) like shadows of further away kelp.
Thank you for sharing it :)
