Over at FSC they have a theme of dreaming of summer. I simply stamped the Stampotique shrooms with black archival over the left over piece of alcohol inked card, masked them off and stamped the TH grunge butterfly over the top. The background is a piece of foam wrapped in a piece of silver sticky tape run through an embossing folder, painted and sanded back. Unfortunately I've covered most of it up!!
You might recognise my clock face, I robbed it off something I'd previously made!!! Background is an embossed texture fade coloured with alcohol inks. The blue frame is the negative of the postage die cut. Pen is a stamped image from a LP set and the word is from a Hero Arts set.
Black tag stamped in white fresco paint using Stampotique images, a piece of gelli print, with black paint marks added. Stampotique face image and word stamped in black archival over a left over piece of alcohol inked card.
Over at Tag Along they are asking to see bright sunny colours this week. I happened to have a lovely gelli print in reds, oranges, and yellows. I cut size #8 tags out and managed to get 3 out of the page.
Stamped all the oriental images in archival and mounted them onto a piece of scored black card. The rain stopped and sun came out so I was able to get a photo outside.
Over on the PA blog Jo is back with her CAS cards using kraft card and little black dress fresco. So dead simple, took a kraft tag, stamped images in little black dress fresco paint, outlined in white posca pen, and that's it!!!
Started off with a piece of corrugated, exposed all the edges. Added a couple of different pieces of gelli plate prints. TH die cuts, pocket watch, picture wheel and tiny tabs. Wheel and tab was covered in a mix of peeled paint and weathered wood distress embossing powder.

Promise this is the last one, a triptych using all the stamps in the LP025 set. Background is a mix of tango and zesty zing fresco edged in blood orange. Images coloured with posca pens, mounted onto black background with white posca pen dots and dashes.
As I enjoyed using all the stamps in a set so much yesterday, I decided to do another one. I brayered fresco paints, pea coat, Baltic blue and south pacific onto a square canvas board. Stamped all the images from the TH Oddities stamp plate in black archival onto tissue paper and cut them out. As you can see, I stamped two eyes. I glued the tissue down with matte medium and once dry washed over the images with a watered down mix of Baltic blue and south pacific. I edged the canvas in pea coat.
Over at A Vintage Journey, they have a great theme this week of use every stamp in a set, the whole stamp or just part of it can be used. I chose the TH Paris Memoir set. Background is coloured with weathered wood and vintage photo distress ink and images masked and stamped in brown stazon.
Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
