It's Spring


Wednesday Stampers challenge today was to do a Skinny , which is a project sized 5'' by 3'' this is what I did. I cut some mount board in the size required I sponged on distress inks then sprayed with metallic srays and stamped using varies stamps in Stazons' white ink. The main image is a stamp from Katies Corner. I embellished it with a cuttlebug die and added some candy dots then wrapped around the whole piece with some embroidery yarn. I punched 2 holes in the top to add ribbon and a yarn to make it into a wall hanging

Believe in Angels


Yet another card today. I had a great time using my imagination on this card. The card is for a Turquoise Challenge on Lisa Volraths' blog called Go Make Something. The background is clipart from Lisa. I recoloured it on my computer then stamped over it with stamps from Katys' Corner, the main image is by Cherry Pie stamps and the charms are from my stash.

Cat Card


I made this card following reading a Sunday Challenge Ink on My Fingers Blog. The challenge was to use a cat stamp. This is the only cat stamp I have, I bought it years ago from Clarity Stamps. The background paper is by Anna Griffin but was a bit twee for me so I Inked the paper using butterscotch(my favourite) , rust and red pepper. I then over stamped the paper in Ginger Adirondack using a Katy's corner Swirl, Elusive Images flower and a unknown butterfly. I used Nestabilities to mat and layer the main image and finished it of with flower, oh and the flowers in the background have some of my new Distress Stickles in Antique Gold in the centres.

Faux Leather


This is another card I did after reading the challenge on Saturdays workout, still not worked out how to send direct links so it will remain on my blog only. The background is made by covering a card with bits of masking tape then swiping a multicoloured ink pad over, then sponging with adirondack ink then finally embossing the whole thing with clear embossing powder. The stamp I used was a Paper Artsy one. It's my son's birthday on 17th of March, think I'll give him this card.
