Made a papercrafted Gothic Arch in an 'Animals' theme for a Challenge over on UK Stampers Forum .....

I used a piece of recycled cereal box card as the base and covered this in a background made with Distress Oxide inks.  The edges and base were decorated with some Washi tape.

I have stamped a set of trees in Archival black onto the background and applied a 'sun' with a circle stamp, orange ink and yellow Stickles glitter glue.

The animals are layer stamped in Memento dye ink and trimmed out before colouring with Alcohol ink markers & are applied on foam pads to the background. The self adhesive letters are applied on a plate coloured in AI on more foam pads.

Finishing touch was to apply a double squiggly line as a surround with brown Posca marker.

The Crow .....


This is a handmade postcard which will travel through the post 'naked' - not in an envelope .....

It's a bit dark but wanted to make it a bit atmospheric for Halloween !  I started with a card base cut to 6 x 4 inches.

I made a background with inks and Brusho and applied this to the base.  I printed a crow and trimmed to fit the card edging with black Micron pen and decorating with spots of Stickles glitter glue after sticking in place.

I also stamped some barbed wire in Archival black ink and a 'Happy Halloween' seal was stamped in red dye ink before trimming and sticking in place.

The postcard was edged in red chalk ink and sprayed with matt acrylic sealer to protect it through the postal system.

Spooky ......


With Halloween slowly coming upon us we have had a 'Spooky' theme for our monthly ATC swap over on UK Stampers Forum ....

These are my ATC's.  The bases are made from recycled cereal box card and the backgrounds are printed paper onto which has been stamped a tall stamp in Archival black ink.  This has been enhanced with a white pen.

I have made the Spooky plates on dark maroon card where I have stamped in Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I have edged the plate and infilled the 'O's with a red Posca pen. Some little dots of Stickles glitter glue were added.

The dripping blood is also made with a Posca pen as is the surrounding edge line.  The plate has been added on foam pads.

Seashells .....


Made a set of 'Seashell' Artist trading Coins for a swap on UK Stampers Forum ....

The bases were die-cut to 2.5 inch diameter from recycled card.  The background was made from Distress Oxide ink.  I stamped a swirl onto the background in Versamark ink and heat embossed this with green/gold embossing powder.  I then stamped some shabby spots and decorated these with Posca pen and some Stickles glitter glue.

The shells were stamped in various browns onto white card, trimmed and highlighted with Glossy Accents before mounting on the Coins on foam pads. I have used DYMO words in blue !

Each Coin was then edged in Krylon gold pen to finish.

Teabag Art .....



Wanted to try some Teabag decoration and I used round teabags this time ......

After drying the bag after use, I carefully slit an aperture in the bag and emptied the contents. I first gave a coat of thinned down white Gesso and then applied matt acrylic paint to make a background.  I then used a honeycomb stencil & stamps with Archival ink and used some pens to highlight sections.

Early days yet and did enjoy doing them although would like to try some with different materials going forward !
