For our challenge I altered a Tag:

Tag-or-ATC-SI-sponsor2

I have used a digi stamp provided by Smeared Ink called “Evil Aye.” This was drawn by Teri Sherman. I have colored it w/ Copics.

The tag is pre-made by Ranger, I sprayed it w/ various sprays by Dylusions. Then w/ a tree stencil from “Stencil Girl” I sponged it on using TH’s “Vintage Photo” Distress ink. Using a different Stencil Girl stencil I added the white, using ink from Fun Stampers Journey.

The sentiment is a freebie from “Create w/ TLC.”

Aye-Aye’s are actually a real creature here is a LINK from National Geographic!

Hope you like my tag, and that you hop on over to LOC and enter  our challenge. You just might win some awesome digi stamps from Smeared Ink!

Here is my Egg:

altered-egg-for-S&S-hop-apr

I bought a bag of wood eggs from Micheal’s, then cover the egg with paper from a book. I made a mixture of water and Mod Podge and soaked my torn book pieces in it, then wrapped it all over the egg.

I stamped onto Tissue Paper and colored with Copics. Then I carefully put the tissue paper into the mixture then onto the egg. This is a stamp from Lost Coast Designs called “Art Doll.”

artdollThis is what the stamp looks like, I have linked it up to the store for you.

altered-egg-for-S&S-hop4

Using 2 different Unity Stamp co. stamps, one is a hand with the word ART, the other says all you need is Love. Stamped onto tissue paper then placed onto egg.

Unity Stamp co. sentiment stamp “Be Original Be you.” also stamped onto tissue paper.
