Green Love .......


Made a decorated tag for a Swap over on UK Stampers Forum !

I have used unusual colours for a 'Love' theme.  There are stamped elements over a background made with Distress inks.  The heart has been stamped and foiled in gold and green metallic film and mounted on foam pads to raise it.  I have stamped the buttons with Stazon ink and applied at the base.

Finishing touch was to add some green eyelash fibres.

AT Coins .....


Welcome to June !!!

Seems the latest papercraft trend is to make Artist Trading Coins as apposed to Artist Trading Cards (ATC's) !

They are 2.5 inch diameter circles which are decorated for trading or swapping.  These 3 are my first attempt at making some.

I have used printed papers, collage, magazine images, stamping, dimensional pearls, glitter & penwork using Posca markers and metallic pens.  I really enjoyed making them for a new monthly swap on UK Stampers Forum where 3 are made and swapped each month.

Early Bird .....



A mailart postcard made for a monthly Swap over on UK Stampers Forum ......

I made this with a card base covered in a watercolour paper background coloured with Brushos.  I then used Dylusions stamps and stamped the birdy directly on the background with Archival black ink.

The image was coloured with Posca markers, which were also used to do the outline of the card.

The sentiment was stamped on white card, trimmed, adhered and coloured with Posca marker.  I sprayed the whole card with acrylic matt spray to seal as it will travel through the post 'naked' to it's recipient.
