I have made two projects combining the fabulous VLVStamps! (Full list of stamps used at the bottom of this post) and the gorgeous Art Anthology products that I was given to make my projects : Sorbet Dimensional paint in the colours : Black Leather Jacket and Sunshine and a spray in the colour Grass. 

This is the first; it is an art journal.

I started with the yellow Art Anthology Dimensional paint (Sunshine) and used a stencil to create the sunburst. Next, when this was dry, I sprayed the page with my Art Anthology Grass Spray. (It doesn't stay on the yellow). I then used a few stamps to give some interest to the background. When this was done, I stamped the sentiment and the man in the gas mask straight onto the page and heat embossed the images with black embossing powder to make them even blacker... The crime scene tape was stamped on a piece of, I think it is called Mulberry paper, and heat embossed in the same way. Lastly I went around the page with a black ink pad.

The second project is a tag:

I used a #8 Manilla tag for this and scraped the Art Anthology Sorbet Dimensional paint onto it with a palet knife. It is gorgeous, there is some little bits of glitter in it. When this was dry I scaped some of the  Art Anthology Black Leather Jacket Dimensional paint over the yellow in the left bottom and right upper corner. 
I also dripped some of the Art Anthology Grass green spray here and there. 
Next I stamped the background and the sentiment straight onto the tag; the girl was stamped separately on some white card stock and coloured with Copic Markers. She was also heat embossed with clear embossing powder before I adhered her to the tag. Lastly I put some ribbon through the hole and that was that !

I used the following stamps :

  2. Beiden erg mooi! De opbouw van de AJ en die stempel van dat meisje op de tag passen zo goed! Groetjes, Gerrina

  3. Two great projects, Corrie, but the second really speaks to me. Great color palette on both. I love your work with the VLVStamps!!
