Sneek Peek day 2


Day 2's  'sneek peek' showing you another version that I made using Sheena Douglas's new stamps and  the exciting new Spectrum Noir Aquatints. So far I have only used mine  for backgrounds, but the list of their uses, shared by  the  DT is getting longer and longer. Guess I know where I will be spending many happy hours, trying them out,  when I get back home again.
I hope you will tune into see Sheena on  Create and Craft, Saturday starting at 8 a.m.

Mans best friend.


'Animals',  is the new challenge starting today over at Try it on Tuesdays.
You can choose wild animals or pets,  the team have a fantastic selection to inspire you,
 please pop over to take a look.
We are currently away in the caravan and one of the things I have away with me,
 that doesn't take up too much space is my new Brusho's.
 So this background is just a sprinkle of powder and a spritz with water.
The stamp is one I have had many years and is by Joanna Sheene.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, the comments you leave are always appreciated.

Hide and go Seek for SCH


We have a super new challenge starting today over at Sugar Creek Hollow its called
'Hide and Go Seek'.


What you make, must have a hidden element. 
This is the tag that is hiding among the layers on this card.
Please pop over for all the details and see what we all made.

I am still mindful of using my store of papers especially the Graphics 45 pads.
So here we have some  layered up on a dry embossed base card.
Vintage Photo distress ink was used for additional shading.

Thank you for taking time to stop by, the comments you leave  me are always appreciated.

I'm watching you


This months theme over at Art Journal Journey is Living Beings.  This page evolved because I was wanting to try  this  new Dina Wakley stencil, As you can see the background was one already inked  and stencilled when I was starting my experiments with Brusho.
I like to weave a story , when I can, about the page,
 the little bird on the fence has got his eye on her. the quote reads................
I want to be improbable
and beautiful, afraid of nothing,
as if I had wings.

I think he is muttering under his breath that she can't have his wings and to find her own.

thank you for stopping by to take a look. The comments you leave are always appreciated.

Autumn days


'Trees with Autumn Colours',  is the new theme at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
The stamps I used for the trees are from a Crafty Individuals set, these were double stamped to blot off the ink, giving a shadow effect. Next came a selection of distress inks, Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door and Crushed Olive. For this stage I dabbed areas with a sponge, until I was reasonably happy with the autuman shades.  I used a  Stormy Sky  ink pad for the sky. 
The fir  tree is a die cut, shades with gilding wax.
I hope you will pop over and see what we all made. Our regular sponsor Flonzcraft  is offering a super prize.
Please remember that we like to see stamping as the main focus to the entries.

Thank you for calling to see what I made, the comments you leave are always appreciated.
