June Guest Designer - Dawn Carlyle!

Hello! Dawn Rene here today from Designs By Dawn Rene.

I am very honored to be The Rubber Cafe's, July guest designer!
I became of big fan of The Rubber Cafe' when I took one of their classes at the Scrapbook Expo in Atlanta last year.

Today I am sharing two projects - a mixed media canvas and a card.

 The highlight of the mixed media canvas is a precious fairy from the "Fairy On the Rocks" stamp.

Next I stamped the image on white cardstock with black ink and did some basic coloring with Copic markers and Faber-Castell gelatos. The background is a collage of raffia ribbon, mica fragments, a printed book page, and a painted chipboard fairy. Faith, Hope, Love are stamped in the moonlight!

Next up is a card I made, once again using the Faith, Hope, Love stamp and Grandma's Doilies

The card is simple,  I have seen a resurgence in vellum lately, so I decided use that today in my card.

 I embossed The Rubber Cafe's Grandma's Doilies on the vellum in gold and overlaid it on the card stock which is stamped with Faith, Hope, Love stamp.

 I look forward to seeing The Rubber Cafe' again at the Scrapbook Expo in Atlanta on July 12th and 13th! And be sure to check back here when I will have a second post to share with your on the 16th!

Thanks for stopping by
Dawn Carlyle
