 It will be exciting to participate in Andy Skinner's new challenge !!
And who would not like to win !!

 I started with cardboard and covered it with white gesso, after it was dry, I gave it a layer of paste and I used my brayer to get it distributed on my cardboard and to provide structure. I came a little sand paste and crackle glaze to where I thought it needed a different structure.

And then I started to play...

I have used:
DecoArt Media black and white gesso, Modeling Paste, Texture sand paste, Crackle glaze and Matte medium.
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Quinacridone Gold, Cobalt teal hue, Cobalt turquoise hue and Translucent white.
DecoArt Antiquing Cream Patina green, English red oxide and medium Grey.
DecoArt Metallic Lustre Brilliant Turquoise.
DecoArt Crafter's Acrylic Christmas red, Golden brown, Citrus green and Brilliant blue.
Stampendous Nature stamp.
Stencil: Andy #04, #03 and #52

Hello Crafters! We're excited to welcome you to the very first joint blog hop with EyeConnect Crafts and Rubber Dance Stamps!
Erin Sparler of EyeConnect Crafts (USA) and Bibi Lindahl of Rubber Dance Stamps (Norway) met online in the fall of 2015. They quickly hit it off and discovered that they had a LOT in common, or as Erin so eloquently put it: There is no word for old friends who have just met!
The Design Teams have been generously supplied with chipboards from EyeConnect Crafts and rubber stamps from Rubber Dance Stamps and we are all thrilled to show you the results with this joint Blog Hop.

What's in it for you?
Glad you asked! One lucky winner will receive a Gift Certificate worth $25 from BOTH EyeConnect Crafts AND Rubber Dance to spend on their websites! Another lucky winner will receive a surprise gift from BOTH Erin and Bibi, with $25 worth of products from their two companies!

What do you have to do?
Not much! 1) Visit all the blog posts in the hop and leave a comment. 2) Become a follower of the EyeConnect Crafts and Rubber Dance Stamps blogs. That's it! And who knows... maybe YOU will tie new bonds of friendships across the globe, too! :-)
You have until Valentine's Day, Sunday the 14th at midnight EST (New York time), which is 6 am Monday 15th for those of you on Central European Time (Amsterdam, Berlin, Oslo), and 5 am if you live in the UK. You can find a time converter here. Winners will be announced 18th February.
Enjoy the hop and good luck!
Here is what I made with chipboards from EyeConnect Crafts and stamps from Rubber Dance: 

Mr. Wolf´s desire for love...


Hello dear readers, Susan here from the Scandinavian blog. I fell in love with the wolf the first time I saw it, and there are lots of ways you can use this wolf chip board. The first thing that occurred to me was of course the little red riding hood, the forest and that the wolf was looking for the only one.

I have taken the stencil and given it white acrylic color using my brayer. Then I printed it on my craft paper. To provide wolf fur structure I stamped with brown ink and afterwards with white gesso.
There are very fine details on the chip board, so in my case it was an advantage to paint and stamp before I pressed the parts out. Then came the fun and that was to gather the wolf with tiny brads and give it life, now the wolf loves to run and dance!

I have used: white/red/kraft cardboard, white acrylic paint, stencil from dutch doobadoo, archival coffee bean, carnation red and small red beads.

Eye Connect Craft chip board Totem Poppets Totem Wolf.
Rubber Dance Stamps Envelope Stamps, En Liten Hilsen, ATC Backgrounds 2 and Round in Circles

Thanks for visiting my blog, I wish you a good day.
