By the skin of my....

Teeth!

Hi there......I'm a bit late with my Craft Barn Challenge....don't know where the weeks have gone.....

The words this time were....

DESTINY & GIFT.......

I went with Gift for my Tag....

                             

Luckily for me I already had the painty bit of the background done!! A 'mop up' from one of my Journal pages :)  I just added some paint splats and stamping and embossing..

Don't you just love this 'couple'?? :) Stampotique of course! They are 'Oliver'  and 'Minky Girl'    Coloured in with Spectrums. With my excellent (not!!) photography skills you can't see what's on the metal tag....it says 'KISS'.........appropriate I thought......

Thanks for looking..

One, two, three.....

Owl!!!

Hi there....

I am taking part in an online class with the lovely and very talented Kate Crane............

It's called Journal Soup 2 and is available here.....

I've not had chance to look at all the videos, but I really wanted to have a go at the Owl........I can't draw for toffee! Dear Bry is the artist....but I had a go and am really chuffed with how they turned out....




I created a background with my Dylusions sprays in one of my large Journals and then over stamped....

I then added my 'dancing owls' :)  For some reason I have quite a few Alpha stamps, but not so many numbers........I found a Unity stamp that had the numbers all together and chopped into it........this is testament to the quality of these stamps that even after all that they stamped really well......The Owl word is a letter stencil that I drew through. ...

I am really pleased with my 'stars'.........these are a brad that I have had for ages dipped into gold paint and then outlined when dry..

Thank you Kate, I am loving the class......

Thank you for looking...........

I have used my Floral stamps by Sheena Douglass.  Coloured with Spectrums and layered...then stuck onto the card with Silicone glue.....

Hi there.....

The two words for the latest Craft Barn Challenge are:

PATIENCE & BETTER..........

I have chosen 'PATIENCE'.............even though it's not normally something that I am known for!!!



My lovely Stampotique girlie is 'Perl'  coloured with Spectrums .....The background of my Tag is created with DIs and over stamped.

My Quote is by Margaret Thatcher....

Alice Postcards...........

Part one!

Hi there.......I had so much fun with this months swap of Postcards that I made 2!

The Theme was 'Dream'..........Don't ask me how, but the first thing that came to mind was 'Alice' :) As I have said before who knows how my mind works!!!

I know my swapee has received these now and she likes them....:) Always good to know...

Here is 'Eat Me'



I am so pleased with ow these turned out......unusually for me they are almost the same as the idea in my head!

I covered my card with a page torn out of a Charity shop find....a really old paperback with  yellow pages!! I can't normally touch any of my books.......but a got a couple of these to do this with...and I've figured I've saved them from the bin!

I then sanded it as I wanted to colour the image in and also wanted it a bit a torn round the edges...

My gorgeous 'Alice' stamp is from this set by Oxford Impressions.........LOVE these :) She is coloured in with my Coloursoft pencils. The corners are a Heartfelt Creations stamp set. All I needed to do then was colour the background....which I did with my DIs......Then a little metallic wax round the edges and I was done....

More tomorrow!

Thanks for looking...

Playing....

Catch Up again!!

Hi there....

Way back in June, the Craft Barn Challenge were the words...

MOUNTAIN & MISTAKE.......

I decided to go with 'MISTAKE'


I put paint on the Tag with my brayer and did what I call my 'Kate' black paint splodges.....I did a workshop with the fabulous Kate Crane  where we learnt to 'flick' paint.......I've not done it for ages.....Everything used to get covered! I thought I'd done quite well this time, until I looked up and saw my pens, the tub I use for my 'odds & ends' and my guillotine are now decorated :) Good fun though :)

I've used Dylusions stamps on the background and my gorgeous girlie stamps by Teesha Moore....

Only a couple more Tags to do and then I'm all caught up :) :)

Thanks for looking...
