You Were....

Born to Fly....

Hi there..I have recently 'acquired' :)  some gorgeous 'Crafty Secrets' stamps ...So I decided to make an inky Tag with them....


The base is a Ranger Manilla Tag...when I ordered them, I thought I was getting the 'normal' size Tags...but these are diddy ones! Perfect for the little stamps :)
The base is coloured with Distress Inks....I have used the background stamp off the Tim Holtz Butterfly set...I've sold most of my Tim Holtz stuff....and this set is the only one that I couldn't part with! The Scroll stamp was a freebie and is embossed in white...

I was so pleased with how she turned out that I made an ATC and a card to match...





Thanks for looking...

Ignorance??

Hi there....

It's been ages since I took part in the Craft Barn Challenge  but I had a bit of time today and thought I'd have a play!

The two words this fortnight are...MIND and IGNORANCE..........I decided to go with IGNORANCE and the first Quote that came to mind.....

Here is my Tag............


I LOVE this little Owl.....An absolute bargain! He is a Magenta wood mounted one and a steal at £2.50 :) The background is created with a gorgeous Indigo Blu 'Bubbles' stamp, Distress Inks and a little water splattering! I stamped the Owl first and made a mask so that I could colour round him. The Quote is computer generated. Finally, I've covered him with Glossy Accents.....

I am so pleased that I have found the time to take part again!! I have a note of the other words and have found some Quotes, so will be playing catch up, even though it's too late to enter them....

Thanks for looking....

Blommin' Marvellous...

Morning :)
Today I'd like to share a Tag I made for a friend.
I started with 4 colours of PaperAtsy paints and brayered them onto my Tag...I then coloured over them with my DIs.....and did a bit of water splattering! The gorgeous flowers are from a stamp set by the very talented Jo Firth Young.....♥ love these....


I coloured with my pencils and then put Glossy Accents over the top....I love these Derwent Coloursoft pencils as I can use Glossy over the top without the colour moving...I coloured the ribbon with my favourite DI...Mustard Seed :)

I'm glad to say that my friend loved her Tag :) Thanks for looking...

Probably Not...

My finest hour!!!! Or day :)

Hi there...it's mum's birthday this week..so I thought I'd better get making a card for her!

I have been having a serious de-clutter of my stamps...I had far too many that I didn't use, so lots have gone to nice new loving homes :) Think my 'mojo' went with them :(  But on the plus side I do have a nice tidy room now...........and still oodles of stuff to play with......

Think my House Mouse stamps may be the next to go.........don't know why I chose to use one....apart from the fact that mum is always knitting!


This is a huge stamp, so the card is an 8x8" one..The image is coloured with my new favourite pencils....Derwent Coloursoft...love them  :)....Background papers are by HOTP..........which I have had for years!!!

Thanks for looking.........have a lovely, sunny?? Bank Holiday :) and I'll see you soon....

Here Comes...........

May!

Hi there.....I've really surprised myself...I'm keeping up to date with my Art Calendar and really enjoying it!!

Here is May's page....


I used my PaperArtsy paints for the background and brayered them on. I used some stamps made by the super talented Kate Crane. I added the little Bird by PaperArtsy, as there was a bit of a gap between my Journalling Tags!

I've also made a start on my backgrounds for the next few months!!

This is for June....


July.....


And August!...........I realise most of my lovely flowers will be covered.......but I'll try and make sure they are peeping through!

Thanks for looking....

First Christmas Card.........

of the year made!!!

Hi there........I wanted to play with my new Derwent Coloursoft Pencils  so I decided to have a go with a design I may just use for some of mum's cards, as she likes the 'proper' Christmas images!!!


This is one of the first stamps I bought and I'm ashamed to say haven't used very much at all.........It's a wooden mounted (my favourite!!) stamp by Inkadinkado....I've just coloured the image with my pencils and used my Gathered Twigs DI round the edge. I put Glossy Accents on the flower. The paper is a magazine freebie by Kaisercraft.....

I just finished with my favourite corners, Card Candi, button and Craftwork Cards sentiment.

Thanks for looking.

Keeping It........

Clean and Simple.........AGAIN!

Hi there. I have been longing to get my inky mitts on the 'Sun Kissed Fleur' set for ages.........finally got it :)

So I thought I'd see what it looked like coloured in with my new pencils (addicted to pens and pencils as well as stamps!!!) Derwent Coloursoft.....I love them, they are lovely to use and blend like a dream.


The card is quite small....probably about 4" square, so just right!! Simply stamped with Memento black ink and then coloured........

The quote is one I've had for ages.......

I also made a matching ATC...


I added Glossy Accents to the flowers....the pencils are so good, the colour didn't bleed at all.

I'm entering these into the 'Simon Wednesday' Challenge...........the theme is  'Keep it Clean and Simple'.

Thanks for looking.

She xx
