Traci Bautista

Emma paid a birthday visit to AftH on Thursday to take a journal class with the lovely Kate Crane.  Little did I know that she was scheming and she bought this wonderful Traci Bautista stamp for me. I'd been pondering over ever since I saw it at Stampington.

Using white as the background colour I spray the Dylusions squeezed orange and let it drip.  I stamped the TB image in purple stazon down the left hand side and top right, and just using the scribble for bottom right, I inked up in black stazon.  I edged the tag in seedless preserve distress ink.

I used a kraft coloured tag for this one and coloured it with various shades of pinks, purples and blues in pan pastels.  I used a circle stencil and used white pan pastel, then bumped it with a light blue shade. I stamped in black stazon using parts of the stamp.

And finally I made an atc and used the top script from the same stamp and the background is lightly stamped in purple stazon.  The main image and the bottom text is from the PaperArtsy Wings #2 plate.  The reason for this is because over at the PanPastelUK blog, they have a theme of animals, so I thought the funky chicken fitted in well!!

Have to say that these are lovely stamps but are a bit Dina Wakley-ish, even down to the packaging!!!

Hi I'm Sam, 45, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 25 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 9 years and 0 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.
