Love, Love, Love

Greetings one and all. After a short break, Eclectic Ellapu is back with the first challenge for 2018, and it is "Anything Goes!"
I hope that you will stop over to see all the unique projects that were created and then consider creating one of your own to share with us!
For my piece, I began with a new to me stamp by Stampers Anonymous, one of the blue print stamps by Tim Holtz. The sentiment is also one of Tim's for Stampers Anonymous.  Love that saying. 
After stamping the image onto water color paper, I added Magicals and collaged polka dotted tissue paper, followed by some stenciling with texture paste using a TCW stencil.  Other stamps used are by NStudios, for Rubbermoon Stamps and the scribble heart is by Sissix.
I am just back in the art studio after a lengthy break due to family obligations and the holidays. It feels good to get inky again.  How are all of you doing?  Would love to hear from you.  Hugs, Yvonne

Animal Instinct

Greetings! It is time once again for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping! The theme for January is "Anything Goes."
I hope you will pop over to FSC to see all the great inspiration pieces by the Design Team and then consider submitting a project of your own. Please remember that we are a stamp challenge, so the focal point of your project is stamping! And of course, one lucky participant will win a stamp image from our generous sponsor Ink Art Designs.
For my own sample, I created a card beginning with a water color panel where I added Magicals. I then stamped with Aall and Create images and water colored them in with TomBow Markers and finished with some sentiments by Aall and Create and That's Crafty.
We look forward to seeing your creations!  Hugs, Yvonne
