Number ATC for Theme Thursday


This is my take on the Number's Challenge on Theme Thursday. I used Adirondacks to colour the backgrounds and Paper Artsy stamps

Altered Tin for Wdnesday Stamper Challenge


I did this tin for a challenge on Split Close Stampers about a week ago, it's candy tin, one I use to store my decorative wires in. My daughter loved it and has asked me to do one for her birthday next month. I've been going through a phase of crafting other things rather than cards.
Lo and behold I went on Wednesday Stamper and their challenge is mixed media, well I think my tin qualifies for that. I painted the tin with gesso, then luminnaire paints I then fused some Angelina fibres and stuck this on the top. I stamped the Stitchels images onto tissue paper and stuck this over the top of the tin. The butterfly is stamped onto Claudine Hellmuths sticky backed canvis which is stuck onto crafting metal. The branch is a grunge board flourish.

Secrets



At last I've got around to photograph a notelet holder I made some time ago, actually got the idea from Inspirational Tips, Techniques and Tutorials.

Think Monday, Think ATC


This is another ATC, this time for a peacock theme on the Think Monday, Think ATC challenge Blog. This will be the first time I have joined a challenge on TMTA. Stamp is from Elusive images and I did the background using Distress inks and I coloured the peacock with H2O's
I've also been working on a notelet holder but am not able to finish it until I buy some velcro dots I sort of cased it from a Technique Blog, more of that when I finish it. I seem to be on a creative roll now funny how that happens and other times I can't seem do anything.

Thank God it's Friday


This is the Gothic arch ATC I did for the challenge on TGIF this week. It's definately a mixed media attempt as I used bits of gold material stuck around the Stampington image of madonna and child.
