Nothing to Blog!!!!

Just didn't want you to think I hadn't been doing anything. I've spent most of the weekend making crafty christmas prezzies for my forum friends, so unfortunately I can't blog any of them until after the event!!!

Wooden 3 x 3's

Front & Back


Graeme also cut me a couple of 3 x 3's too. Again I gesso'd them both, the top one I left white. I stamped the image for the front onto tissue paper and used modge pod to apply. For the back I used black stazon and stamped directly onto the wood. The bottom one is painted in adirondack acrylic paint from the sunshine yellow dabber and then I applied spoldges on with sandal from the same range. I then modge pod my tissue paper image over the top. I haven't decided what to do with the back yet, if anything.

Wooden Atc's

Front & Back

Front & Back

Top & Sides

Back & Front

Graeme, Hilda's son kindly cut me 3 atc sized blocks of wood. This is what I did with them. I gesso'd all the sides, after drying applied green paint to them all, left one green, added purple to another and blue to the other. Stamped my various images onto white tissue paper, applied modge pod to them, stuck the tissue paper on and applied another coat of modge pod.

These will also fit in with the Lotstodo Challenge this week set by Hilda - Quotations

A Couple of Tags

Spiced Marigold distressed ink as a base layer, then I put my new TH masks on and added a bit of Shabby Shutters and Frayed Burlap. I stamped the image with versamark ink and used Peeled Paint distressed embossing powder. Once heated I rubbed away the crystals for the distressed effect

Did more or less the same with this tag except I stamped the top and bottom images with Peeled Paint distressed ink and the middle one is embossed as above

Wednesday Stamper Challenge - Angel

This weeks challenge on Wednesday Stamper is Angels and one of my new stamps was of an Angel so I created a 4 x 4. I've used crackle glaze on the wingsbut it doesn't show up very well on the photo

A Few ATC's With My New Stamps

Top left has black stickles over some of the splodges and black gem stones added. Top right was coloured with distressed inks. Bottom left has had diamond glaze added to the wings although it doesn't show up on the photo. Bottom right has had gold stickles added to the top sisters word

Top has had purple gem stones added. Middle has had diamond glaze added to the eiffel tower. Bottom has had pieces of mica added along the right hand side and over the left eye

All my new stamps are from my local craft shop called Paper Paradise and at the moment there is a 25% sale on lots of the wooden stamps, CI and PA plates. Unfortunately you can not order on line, but if you are local or need anything, contact Sue at the shop - 01472 359158

A Few New Stamps

A few inchies. The eyes have been embellished with diamond glaze but it doesn't show up on the photo

This is a trinchie. I really love this stamp. I'm going to use it on a tag with distressed embossing powder
An arch. I stamped the swirl on the right and then used the gold stickles to trace over it

A Few ATC's

In the mayhem of my life at the moment, I've managed to make a handful of Atc's. Luckily all the backgrounds were already prepared, it was just a case of stamping the images.
