Alice Coins ......


After being sent a wonderful gift from Jannet Blay from a blog Challenge on her blog 'Enchanted Place' my interest in Alice in Wonderland was re-kindled !  Also she had wrapped the gift pieces in gorgeous 'Rabbit' tissue paper which I saved and used in these Coins !

I die-cut the 2.5 inch diameters circles from white card and covered each with the tissue paper applied with a soft brush and loads of matt Mod Podge.  When dry I stamped a number of AIW images in Memento Ink and coloured these with Copic Markers before trimming out.

The images were applied after being edged with black ink and the wording was stamped directly on the coin using black Archival Ink.

A couple of red heart shaped gems were applied as shown onto each coin and they were edged in red Copic marker.  They were backed with Kraft card.

The envelopes were made after stamping liberally with a red heart and the apertures cut with another smaller die.

Thanks Jannet !!

Sweet Trading Coins ........


Made these Artist Trading Coins using an old rubber stamps and some different techniques. Each uses 2.5 inch die-cuts as the base.

The top one I used coloured pencils and chalks for the background and stamped with Distress Ink over this, edged with Versamagic Chalk Ink.

Bottom left I used printed paper as the base and stamped in Distress Ink and used a water brush to produce a watercolour effect. Again edged with chalk ink.

Bottom right I applied dye inks direct-to-paper, over stamped in Versafine sepia ink and then used Posca markers to further define the outlines. Again edged with chalk ink.

All three have some Posca white pen to highlight eyes and teeth.

These are up for swaps, so if you would like to swap with me, please email me on the email link in the right border of the blog !

July .....


Made a 4 x 4 inch Decorated Square for the month of July over on UK Stampers Forum Facebook Group ....

The main image was stamped and coloured with watercolour brushpens, trimmed out and applied as shown.  The square was edged with dots in Posca ink and silver pen.

Oriental Summer .....


Made a mail-art postcard for a swap on UK Stampers Forum Facebook Group with an oriental & Summer theme ......

The base is white card and I have coloured the background with Distress inks added stamping in Distress & Brilliance inks and some stencilling.  The main image is by Hero Arts and I have used a waterbrush to colour it.  I have used gold & white pens to highlight and stamped the Chinese symbol for 'Summer' as shown.

It will be sent 'naked' through the post so I have sprayed with matt acrylic sealer to protect it against the ravages of the Postal system.
