Here is the project I made using both amazing Ken Oliver’s Products and fantastic Impression Obsession stamps!


I made this TAG that I cut from the Ken Oliver Mixed Media Paper. I used gesso and modeling paste to add some texture then I added color using Ken Oliver – Color Burst – Alizarin Crimson and Ken Oliver – Color Burst – Ultramarine Blue letting it dry before adding each color.


I stamped the lovely “ Sweetheart Sally ” stamp over another piece of Ken Oliver Mixed Media Paper and colored it with Color Burst. For the hair I mixed Ken Oliver – Color Burst – Lemon Yellow and Ken Oliver – Color Burst – Ultramarine Blue meanwhile for her skin I used again Ken Oliver – Color Burst – Lemon Yellow but mixed with Ken Oliver – Color Burst – Alizarin Crimson. I double stamped her dress over an old dictionary page, fussy cut it and adhered to the original dress.

I used the ” Cover-a-Card Hearts” over another piece of paper and glued it to the background and behind it I simply glued down a piece of freezer paper. I stitched around the tag border and added the sentiment using “ Simply Love ” stamp that I fussy cut and colored with Ken Oliver – Color Burst – Ultramarine Blue.


Ciao a tutti!

Abbiamo creato appunto bellissimi progetti e abbiamo PREMI da condividere!

Ecco il progetto che ho fatto io usando entrambi i fantastici prodotti di Ken Oliver e i timbri di Impression Obsession stamps!


Ho creato questa TAG che ho ritagliato usando Ken Oliver Mixed Media Paper. Ho usato gesso e modeling paste per aggiungere un poco di texture e poi ho aggiunto colore usando Ken Oliver – Color Burst – Alizarin Crimson e Ken Oliver – Color Burst – Ultramarine Blue lasciando asciugare ad ogni colore.


Ho timbrato il dolcissimo timbro “ Sweetheart Sally ” su un altro ritaglio di mixed media paper by Ken Oliver Mixed Media Paper e colorato usando i Color Burst. Per i capelli ho usato Ken Oliver – Color Burst – Lemon Yellow e Ken Oliver – Color Burst – Ultramarine Blue mentre per la pelle ho usato Ken Oliver – Color Burst – Lemon Yellow e Ken Oliver – Color Burst – Alizarin Crimson. Ho timbrato il vestito su una pagina vecchia di dizionario e incollato sopra al primo timbro fatto.

Ho usato ” Cover-a-Card Hearts” per timbrare un altro pezzo di carta che ho incollato sullo sfondo e dietro a questo pezzo di carta ho incollato della carta freezer. Ho cucito intorno alla tag e aggiunto il sentiment “ Simply Love ” che ho ritagliato e colorato con Ken Oliver – Color Burst – Ultramarine Blue.


Ken Oliver Crafts will be giving away a set of Color Burst

Impression Obsession will be giving away a $25 Gift Certificates

    Very very cute!!! Oh è così strano trovare in un blog hop un’artista italiana! Sono felicissima! Anche perchè ho più proprietà di linguaggio per esprimere tutta la mia ammirazione e per farti i complimenti! Adoro questo progetto e l’uso dei colori! Ma la parola inglese “cute” è davvero perfetta per descrivere il tuo progetto!
