Free .....


Made a tag for a swap on UK Stampers Forum after being inspired by Kate Crane ......

The base is a manilla tag and I have dyed the string with Distress ink (Worn Lipstick).

The collaged background is made from Gelli prints using alcohol inks and Distress Oxides trimmed and applied to provide a ground for the bird..... a little stamping in pink Archival ink adds a contrast colour. All edged were edged with pale green Versamagic chalk ink.

The bird (JOFY) was stamped on white card and coloured with Distress Inks made into watercolours and trimmed. It was applied on foam pads to add relief.

The words (Crafty Individuals) are backed with a snippet of background and applied on more foam pads to finish .....

Wings ......


 An Artist Trading Coin ....

This one was on a Gelli Plate background in pink and orange and was on a base of re-cycled packaging. I stamped a butterfly twice with Versamark ink, one on the base and one on some yellow card. Heat embossing with a yellow glitter embossing powder. The one on yellow card was trimmed out and coloured with a pink pen. I then stamped a number of the same butterfly on the base in Versafine black ink.

The butterfly was applied on foam pads to raise the wings. The words (Crafty Individuals) were stamped in more Versamark black, trimmed out and applied as shown. The coin was edged in yellow Versamagic chalk ink to finish .....

Spring ......


Made this card for a Challenge n the Countryview Crafts Challenge blog whose subject this month is 'First Signs Of Spring' .....

I started with a 6 x 6 inch white card blank .... The background was made with Distress Oxides in Speckled Egg, Twisted Citron and Squeezed Lemonade spayed with water and smooshed onto the white card. the panel was edged in black. I then stamped some open and closed leaves in more Twisted Citron ink.

I then applied a strip of green Washi tape as shown and stamped a brown twig top right. The background was then matted on yellow and dark green card.

I then stamped the daffodils, nest and words in black Versafine ink on white card .... heat embossing all with clear embossing powder. The nest and daffodils were coloured with watercolours and trimmed out. The nest was applied on foam pads and the daffodils directly to the background over the Washi tape.

The words were trimmed & matted again before applying on more foam pads. The matts were attached to the card blank to finish the card .....

Thought it was quite Springy in content and colour .....

Cuppa ......


We all love a cuppa ... don't we ?

Made this card on a white A6 card base ....... I stamped the cups (Crafty Individuals CI - 547) twice in Versafine black in and heat embossed both the images with fine detail clear embossing powder.

The first was trimmed out as the base. I then fussy cut the three tea-cups from the other image, handles cut out with a scalpel.

These were then watercoloured with Distress Ink washed in Victorian Velvet, Shabby Shutters, Broken China & Dusty Concord. One of the handles was coloured gold with a metallic pen. I left the tea-bag tag uncoloured on purpose. Once dry I applied Glossy Accents on each of the cups.

I then coloured a surround for the background and sentiment with the same colours. I then applied the plain image on the surround and applied the cups on foam pads. The background and surround were applied to the card base along with the sentiment which was stamped in more Versafine black ink and backed with the same coloured frame on foam pads.....

Beautiful ......


Made an Artist Trading Coin for swapping .... reminded me of the evening sky ......

I used a base of re-cycled packaging die-cut to 2.5 inches in diameter. I then cut a layer from a background made on white card with Distress Oxide inks smooshed with water and dried.

The top layer was stuck in place and some circular sewn lines stamps were stamped in black Versafine ink. The planet was made from more Distress Oxide and die-cut to 1 inch diameter, stamped with Versafine black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. This was stuck in place as shown.

The coin was edged with purple Versamagic chalk ink along with a Tim Holts word sticker and finished with three purple iridescent sequins applied with Glossy Accents.
