I created this tag for Fitztown's Bunny Hop.  It is always fun working with Fitztown's images.
 
The making of this tag began with distressing the edges all around the tag with Tim Holtzs Distressor tool.  I then used the following Distress ink pads.
spun sugar, dusty concord, black soot, broken china.
Copic Pens used on the image were:
G40, G99, VOOO, V06, V12
R81, YR12, YR18, YR24, YR65,
E000, E95, E91
CO,C1, C2

I then used a honey comb stamp and a stamp with the words, Happy Easter.  Liquid applique by Mavy was used on the tail, heated with a heat gun and watched it puff up.  Can't really tell on this photo.  Tiny Pom Poms by Creatology can be found at Michaels.  I placed then to appear as easter eggs.  Twirled some wire and placed it on the bunny's hands. 
Hope you like it!  Don't forget your next hop should be at Judy's blog.

FITZTOWN CANVAS "DARE"

Hello everyone, I'm back with another  mixed media canvas project using the beautiful images of Fitztown.
I began by prepping the canvas with gesso then using Distress Ink, Aged Mahogany, some black Dreamweaver Embossing paste to create the word, Dare with a Plaid/Folk Art  stencil.  The TCW 6x6 Mini Birds of a Feather stencil was done by using Momento's Tuxedo Black ink pad. 

The image was printed and colored with my Copic pens (RV09, RV34, RV69, RV81, RV91, YR61, Y02, G12, G21, E78, E95) and a Gelly glitter pen.  She was then cut out and placed on a Making Memories picture frame that I've had for quite some time now.   

The branches are from Jolees Stickers.  The bird is from Paper House's 3D stickers.

 I also used a TCW 6x6 Stencil Mini Chicken Wire with a Brilliance ink pad, Moonlight White.  I delicately placed burgundy rhinestones by Recollections on the center of most of the flowers.  I also added a small green pearl on the bird as an eye.
Hope you enjoy my project and by all means, if you have any questions I will gladly answer. 
Thanks again and hop on over to the fitztownchallengeblog.blogspot.com if you haven't been there yet and check out their images at Fitztown.com.
Thanks again!

FITZTOWN CHALLENGE #24 STITCHING - ANAKIN

 
 
Hey guys!  Here with you to share my challenge #24 piece.
I purposely used image #6 from the Fitztown store because this past Monday, Feb. 17th I lost one of my best friends.  He is sorely missed and my heart is broken...
I began with a gessoed 10x8 canvas, used my Distress Ink, Broken China for the background, sealed it with Mod Podge.  I used my Copic pens, gray tones and a Copic Multiliner.
 
 I used vellum paper to cut out his wings with Tim Holtz's Layered Angel Wings die.  A halo created with thin gold wire.   
 
Jolee's white doves added to the sides of his name which is from TH's Newsprint Alphas.
 
I used ribbon with paw prints and stitched it down along the bottom of the frame using burgundy thread.  A cloud with plastic doves I had laying around.  A tennis ball by his foot is from Jolee's Stickers.  I finished the canvas by adding TH's Corners which I colored black with my Copic pen.
 

Hope you play along on all of Fitztown's Challenges.
Did I inspire you?  Hope so!
Have fun playing!
Ivette
 
In Memory of my beloved Friend, Anakin...
May the force be with you...

"THE LAZY SONG"

Hello bloggers, here with another fun project.  I used this neat Fitztown's image that I colored with my Copic, Multiliner and Spica Pens.
I began by covering the canvas with a light coat of gesso.  Then I used my Distress Inks, Spiced Marmalade and Peacock Feathers.

  I printed out music sheets of a favorite song called, "The Lazy Song" by Bruno Mars.  This fairy was feeling her groove.
 
 I used Mod Podge (glossy) to glue the music sheets down onto the canvas.   I also used a 6x6 template by TCW, Mini Gears.  I hand drew music notes throughout the canvas with my Copic Multiliner 0.05 (blk).   Added some jewelry pieces as studs on top of the canvas, as well as two bows and buttons on both sides of the upper corners.
 

 For the wings I used Tim Holtz's Die, Layered Wings and cut them out of transparency.  I colored them with my Copic pens.

I had a blue piece of a beaded chain and placed it around her.
 

 Some TH Mini Gears were dabbed in Patina.
The rocks are Spring Fillers by Ashland that I purchased at Michaels.  They come in various colors.  The song title were from TH's Alpha. 
 
  Hope I've inspired you and jump started your creative juices!  
Don't forget to visit the Fitztown's store and don't miss out on their Challenges.
 Have fun!
