Bowie Mixed Media - LDRS Creative

Hello and welcome back to Passionate Paper Creations with Rhea Weigand.
Today I want to share with you Bowie from the Saturated Canary Stamp line, Friends - Vintage Affections and LDRS Dies, Lovely View and Darling Square Set all from LDRS Creative.

I created this on a 8x8 canvas with lots of sprays, flowers, brick stencil and paste.  There is even a little ball chain woven in and out.  I used the flowers from the Darling Square Set to create the vine across the top.  With the Lovely View Die I created Wings for Bowie.  Then created another set of wings for the sentiment.  I hope you enjoy looking at all the bits and pieces to todays inspiration.  


Ribbon Resource Christmas Card Blog Hop - Presented by May Arts Ribbon

Welcome to Passionate Paper Creations with Rhea Weigand, Today is the Ribbon Resource Christmas Card blog hop presented by May Arts Ribbon. 
Did you know you can now buy May Arts Ribbon in 5 yard sections through Ribbon Resource which is their RETAIL WEBSITE!  Can I get an OH YEAH!

What you can do with Ribbon is actually quite amazing!  This card has no stamping.  One piece of white card stock and black card stock cut to an A2 size vertical card shape.  I made the flower to represent a poinsettia from leaves and sprayed them with two different colors.  I layered two different ribbons for the background piece, used the leftover leaf ribbon with pearls on wire to make a spray.
Then I dropped a few heavy drops of green spray and used my air brush gun to move them around.
With a fan paint brush I splattered red spray into the background.  Added a few yellow Prills which were also placed in the center of the poinsettia and that was it.  Total time to make was about 30 minutes.  

Now are you ready to see some more amazing Christmas Cards from some of my other team members?

The prize for the card hop is 2 - 5 yard rolls of xmas ribbon.
So make sure to eave a little love on each blog along the hop and back at Ribbon Resource Blob

Let heaven and Nature Sing - Power Poppy

 Welcome back to Passionate Paper Creations with Rhea Weigand, here to bring you Monday Inspiration!!
Today I am using Heaven and Nature Stamp Set.
You can find all of Power Poppy Clear Stamps Here just in case you want to try this on some of the NEW CLEAR STAMPS JUST RELEASED!

There are a few techniques I used in this design.
  1.  Monochromatic with a color pop - With this being a Christmas design I used the E80's.  This color set has a nice green hue to them.  The forward pieces are lighter and are accented with Karina Wink white.  The pieces in back were colored with the darker colors.  This gives the overall appearance of depth.  The Color Pop is the stamped sentiment in Red.
  2. No line coloring - I used Memento Desert Sand being that I was coloring with the E's.  Keep in mind with out the black lines your overall color can look a little different because you loose the details of the stamped image.
  3. Using an Embossing Folder over the colored image that matches the background - once i was done and I knew the Copics were dry I had a thought to run this through my machine with a dot embossing folder....what's the worse that could happen?  I had to start over?  As it turned out I thought it was awesome!  So I did a piece in the background to match :)  I don't usually have a plan for a design it just all comes together in the end. 
  4. Using the matching dies to create a frame for the original die cut.  - It looked a little plain and I wanted to really have the "Color Pop of Red"  So I took the original size die and the next size die.  Perfectly nested them, taped them together so they wouldn't move and created a frame with red card stock.   Once it was attached with a thin layer of glue I then used glossy accents to frame the inside with beaded chain for further effect. 
  5. Using a drop of matching Stickles and covering with Faber-Castels Texture Gems (a thick totally clear drying that creates a dome)  Which magnifies the little bit of glitter at the bottom.  I did this on all the berries and the inside of the flowers. 
Now, here are the few colors I used.

Thanks so much for visiting today!
