Close to Nature



 Just had to join in the Penny Black and More challenge when I saw its theme "Close To Nature". Seeing I love making up little scenes with my stamps this was the challenge for me !!


I don't have many Penny Black stamps so used a set of stamps by Lindsay Mason and the sentiment stamp I had in my stash. Just made a background using distress inks and some water, then stamped all the images and sentiment. Finished off with some sparkle using Stickles and a bit of chnky white Frantage.

Quick Cards magazine


I took part in this month's Quick Cards magazine Sketch Challenge !!


























Sadley I didn't take a photo of my card before I sent it off, so will do when I get it back.


























I love sketches and seeing all the different takes by other crafters. I wasn't sure how out of the box I could take it so played safe with my card. The middle bit looked like a fence so made a little scene using the fab cacti stamps by Woodware and on the background.

Halloween


My word time for another House Mouse and Friends challenge and the theme is......


I just love Halloween colours, can't go wrong with black, oranges, purple and greens. I've actually used Stampendous HMD called "Autumn Winds" which I thought went well with the Halloween theme and made a spooky background for my little guy using distress inks and a tree stamp.
































Stamped and coloured with Copics and then fussy cut the image out mounting it onto 3d foam tape then onto my background. Die cut my "Spooky" making the "O's" into eyes !!

We are super excited to be sponsored by:


 Winner will receive a Fabulous $20 Value Reward Card

Woodware flowers

 
Wanted to make a nice "Thank You" card for a lovely friend, so set about making an inky background using three distress inks. Then white heat embossed some Woodware flower stamps colouring in with the same distress inks and adding loads of doodling with a black pen !!


Managed to make three cards from my A4 inky background !!
