Urban .....


I made this tag for a monthly swap over on UK Stampers Forum .....

I used a black textured card background cut to size and started by stamping with Versamark  & heat embossing with some Jasper powder which has a gold/brown colourway.

I then added a number of strips of Washi tape and splattered with white acrylic paint.

The main house images are by Teesha Moore, stamped in Memento black trimmed out and coloured with Copic markers .... wanted to add a bit of colour so went with Pink.  The houses were matted onto silver foil card and trimmed out before adding on foam pads.

The tag was edged with yellow Versamagic chalk ink and a fine line added with yellow Posca marker. A hole was punched and a silver eyelet added with the Crop-a-dile and this was threaded through with some silver and pink velvet ribbon to finish.

Everlasting ....


Made an Artist Trading Coin using a stamp and tissue paper sent by a friend with her swaps ....

I die-cut a 2.5 inch circle of re-cycled packaging and applied a circle of the spotty tissue with matte medium.  Once dry stamped this with the stamp in Archival Black ink. I applied some blue Posca and Gold Leaf pen to decorate.

The heart and arrow was die-cut from Kraft card. The heart was coloured with red Brilliance ink which has been treated with Glossy Accents. This was stuck in place and the coin was edged in gold to finish !

Women ......


Wanted to make a set of ATC's in the theme of 'Women' for the swap over on UK Stampers Forum so decidied on a vintage look.

The backgrounds were made with distress ink on paper which was applied to a background of re-cycled corrugated board.  The images are Tim Holtz paper dolls which I have coloured with Copic markers. Once applied some grey Copic was added to provide shadows for the ladies.  I stamped swirls on the left hand side of each ATC in Versafine black ink.

The words are printed and coloured with a black edge.  Each ATC has been edged with Versamagic chalk ink to finish !

Daisy...Daisy ....


Just finished making a set of Inchies for a swap over on UK Stampers Forum ... these are in a floral theme.

The background is punched out of a Distress Oxide background using a 1 x 1 inch punch and mounted on re-cycled card from a cereal box for strength.

I have used various stamps with Memento & Versafine inks to add alpha and floral images, in a green, mauve and blue colourway whilst colouring the daisy centres with gold pen.

The Inchies have been edged with blue Versamagic chalk ink to finish.

Alice Day .....


Made this Artist trading Coin which is 2.5 inches in diameter as an entry into the 'Alice Day' Challenge running until 5th July over on UK Stampers Forum .... the idea originated from Jannet Blay who is a great 'Alice in Wonderland' fan. If you would like to join in the Challenge click HERE to go to the Forum ... it's free, fun & friendly.  All you have to do to enter is make something with stamping, take a photo and upload to an Album.  The winner will be randomly chosen (so no judging), and will win a fabulous 'Alice' prize kindly donated by Jannet !

I made the background from some tissue paper which came from Jannet and applied this to a die-cut circle made from re-cycled cereal packaging.  I used a brush and acrylic matte medium to apply the tissue.

Once completely dry I directly stamped the Hatter and coloured him with alcohol ink pens and Posca markers. The pocket watch was stamped directly but I also stamped again on white card and trimmed out the numerals which were stuck in place over the stamped image on the coin. Some silver pen dots were added. I then stamped the 'Alice' word in Archival black ink and embellished with three matte metallic heart brads.

I backed the coin with two more layers of packaging and edged with red chalk ink to finish.

Beautiful .....


Made a mailart postcard for a swap over on UK Stampers Forum .....

I made a background from watercolour card treated with Brushos in Orange & Yellow, applied with a brush in layers with some spattering.  I have then applied leaf veins in white gesso though a stencil.

I used a set of retro flower stamps and Archival black ink as shown and the word 'Beautiful' in the same ink.

I have used black & gold pens to add a border and some highlighting.  The card was backed with a layer of re-cycled board for strength and sprayed with matte acrylic sealer to protect in the post !

Pink & black .....


I have used a swapped stamp to be the centre of this pink and black folding boxcard over on UK Stampers Forum ...

I wanted to just keep to pink, white & black as the main colourway for this boxcard.

The main image was stamped in Memento ink and selectively coloured in rose pink Copic marker on white card before trimming out.  I applied some Stickles glitter glue to the wings. The box was die-cit and assembled as were the balloon, star & streamer along with the Celebrate sentiment.

I covered the bottom panels of the box in black & white circle print papers.

Some black and iridescent pink sequins were added to finish ....

Cake .....



A decorated tag made for a swap in UK Stampers Forum ....

The base is recycled packaging and is covered in a watercolour card background which has been coloured with Brushos. The diamonds are stamped in yellow acrylic paint.

The main image and balloon were stamped in Memento ink and coloured with Copic markers before trimming out. The little girls dress is paper pieced with blue gingham paper and treated with Stickles glitter glue. Both this and the sentiment were applied to the tag (the sentiment on foam pads) Some shadowing was added around the image with black Micron pen.

The tag has been edged in metallic brush pen and Posca marker.

A hole with an eyelet was made with the crop-a-dile and this was threaded through with some purple and yellow sari silk to finish.
