Archiscraps April challenge

The APRIL challenge at Archiscraps is to be inspired by Ancient Egypt. when I first saw this challenge I thought easy peasy LOL I was wrong I had no ideas it took me a while...I went through my crafty supplies and NOTHING jumped out at I thought hieroglyphics would be cool...thus my card was born, honestly, I really love how it turned out...I just had to shut my brain off and let it happen!

 challenge at Archiscraps
 Think of all things about Egypt: Mummies, hieroglyphics, archaeologists, the Nile, the pyramids, the Sphinx, cats, scarab beetles and others.

You can do a layout, card, bookmark, tag, off the page item, so long as it is paper!
Don't forget to explain the connection.

 I hope you stop by the blog and check out the rest of the design team's inspiration and then play along!

Stay Safe and Healthy!

keeping distracted

So I'm trying to distract myself...when I get stressed I tend to clean normally that's not a bad thing but when you think you broke the water heater from using too much Hot water you know it's time to cut back LOL

So instead I took it in the opposite direction and I made a crafty mess...I pulled out a couple colors that I love Peacock feathers and wilted violet...I used both distress oxide inks and sprays (both you can get from Scrapsalot shop) on these pretty tags

there was a whole lot of layering going on here...paper gesso texture paste ink sprays some more inks more paper then some embellishments...
when I first got the word board die-cut set I really had no idea what I was going to do with it other than a word board but I seem to use their alphabet die a whole comes in quite handy!
I entered this one in the challenge over at More than Words

 thanks for coming by and checking out my new tags...stay safe and distracted!

Items used from scrapsalot shop

Oxide inks- wilted violet, black soot, peacock feathers

Faux watercolor background

I had a swap this month which required a watercolored background so I thought I would use some of my awesome supplies from Scrapsalot all inks and stamps are from there...make sure you stop by scrapsalot and check out what paper crafting supplies she has to offer!

I used plain white #110 lbs card stock (which is flimsy when using lots of water lol but I managed to flatten it out after it dried with some heavy books) I picked my two favorite colors peacock feathers and wilted violet distress oxide sprays.
I put a Lil bit of the spray on my craft mat (one at a time)added a bit of water then smushed my paper into the color. I alternated colors (drying in between each color) until I had a background I was happy I did four panels and each one came out a little different.
I pulled out this beautiful peony dreams stamp set from waffle flower...I thought it would be perfect for this card...
 I thought added a bit of a black border would make this panel pop...I finished this card off with a couple enamel dots also from waffle flower

My peaceful place

The new challenge is now live over at Archi-scraps challenge blog...your challenge for March is to Create your PEACEFUL PLACE layout or a card /tag about PEACE.

My peaceful place is down by the river, they have a river walk here and in the spring-summer and fall it's very quiet and beautiful.
It's been some time since I've done an actual layout I was so inspired by this challenge that I pulled out a couple things I've been hoarding the washi tape and the wood animals...they worked perfectly for this page!

thanks for stopping by and make sure you head over to Archi-scraps challenge blog and play along with us!
