From Linda Blackbird:

She's attached to a the front of a small wooden 'treasure' box. The box sits at the edge of a shelf and she and her turtle friend hang down.

And later....this is how the project grew and grew! Linda frequently goes back to take care of "It needed something" but THIS time : )

If there's a subsequent change, we'll let you know!


Linda Blackbird's on a "Mermaid Roll!"

I used one of the texture stamps from the older set to apply pigment inks in green and gold to matte coated c.s. for the background color. Inked it up and smooshed it around until the entire piece of paper was covered. In Memories black, I stamped the aloe plant, masked it and stamped part of another. Stamped the mermaid and removed the mask. Using the cloud stamp for rocks, I stamped in black and overstamped in Brilliance Copper. Continued with the same stamp, in Copper, all around the border. Added a triangle stamp in the corner. Colored the plant and the mermaid with Lyra Metallic Pencils, then covered the entire piece with UTEE.

"Using the cloud stamp for rocks,"

This is a great example of "making do"....See CLICK CLASS 2--Making Do for more, related ideas.

Eye/Tear Rubber stamps, unmounted rubberstamps, unmounted

From Linda Blackbird:

This stamp says so much, without saying a word. I was able to personalize it by adding the leaves, being that my stamping friend is partial to them. The teardrop has dimensional glue on it.

Linda Blackbird's "Memory Box" was offered in the Dueling Modem's* Auction benefiting victims, rescuers and survivors of the September 11, tragedy.

*DM is now Cyberstamper's

Audrey Carneiro uses the butterfly image frequently.

These are samples of some of her applications.

The design was developed when Audrey's mother died. At the gravesite, butterflies were released to fly with her Mother's spirit and carry with them the love and good wishes of the family.

BUTTERFLY FAN Rubber stamps, unmounted rubberstamps, unmounted

You may recognize this fan. It is used in the "store front" opening to gg design's site at Dueling Modem's Crafts Mall.

It is the work of Linda Reid. The card gets fan mail! A customer wrote: I am a fan of Linda's fan!

Thanks for letting us use your work for all this time Linda.

Dolly Roit sends this "rendition" of the butterflies. The large section show the background technique and the heavy silver embossing she used so effectively.

She writes: I was looking at everyone's samples the other day and noticed that Linda Reid might have used the same background technique on her Iris card that I used on my butterflies! The background technique I learned is called marbelized background. All I did was take some acrylic paints in metallic colors and squirt them on a piece of freezer paper and then covered it with another sheet of freezer paper and smooshed the different colors of paint around to run into each other but not too much so that colors become muddy and then pulled them apart and let them dry. I thought your butterflies were the perfect stamp for that background! Just add some black beads for the butterflies body and you're done!

This card, titled "Shimmery Seashells" is the work of Lynn Bouchay.

Isn't it charming?

AND....her directions are a surprise and such fun!
