second Dina face...studio 490 style

happy weekend friends!

first of all...

THANK YOU 
to everyone who attended my class and make & take at the Collin's event in Orlando last weekend...

it was FUN to catch up with
 store owner friends again & talk about inks, stamps & stencils!

I'm off to teach this weekend at 
Memory Bound, in Ankeny, Iowa...
I'm expecting a full house & lots of fun...

before I go,
I wanted to share another Dina face
done studio 490 style...


this sample is on a specialty stamping paper 

I sprayed it with violet & leaf green archival sprays...
here's the scoop on making them...

I used the new cable knit stencil & with a blending tool that was moistened with rubbing alcohol, I rubbed thru the stencil
 to lighten the color...

I stamped the face with black soot archival, 
then embossed it with clear powder...

the leaves were stenciled with leaf green...
I added a bit of tea rose to accent her cheek...
and red geranium to add color to her lips...

in the background you'll see "cracks" from the new all cracked up background...
I used violet for them...

the flower and bow created her hat...

was inked with red geranium & pressed onto the 
the "roses" fit well on the heart...
it's a great (new fav) text background!

"forever" was stenciled with my new 
FAVORITE

and here's the coordinating partner...

I added red geranium
and white pen dots to add highlights...

just a little pen stitching detail...

20 minutes of pure FUN...

here she is...
very simple...
but I really enjoyed this playtime...



and here's a side shot...
I like the shiny embossed image...
you can see the cracks & the cable knit stencil in the background...


sometimes it's fun to have no agenda...
just the desire to test drive a new stamp and...

make art!

I absolutely love what you have done with the Dina Wakley stamps, Wendy. Thank you for this inspiration. I am going to be doing a Dina Wakley Friday Focus in a couple of weeks over at Frilly and Funkie. I love her art but it's not really my crafting style so I was wondering what I could do with her products. You have really solved my dilemma and now I can't wait to get started on a project with a fusion of Dina and Wendy styles - yay!!

Hugs,
Linda
