I recently bought a Tim Holtz stamp platform and have been playing with it, here is my first mixed media tag that I made using it. Love this quote.

I used - found feather - Kaiser craft stamp, visible image stamp, paper artsy Alison Bomber quote stamp, geletos and gesso.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

That's crafty challenge - green with envy
Craft Stamper challenge - anything goes December 2017

I dream of green

"I look out of my window and I dream of green"




I used to occasionally visit a lovely lady who lived a few houses down from me. Unfortunately a cataract operation had gone wrong, she once told me the above quote. I used every green water color pencil I have to color this image.

I used -Oxford Press art stamp colored with green pencils.


This is my entry to the Allsorts challenge blog which is -thank you card.
I used - indigo blu stamp colored with pink water colored pencils and a stamp my friend gave me with no packaging, so no idea who made it (soz!)

And last but no means least this is my entry to this weeks Less is more challenge red and green

I used -katzelcraft stamps and free papers.I love this chap he looks so hopeful!

Here are a couple of green shots to warm you under winter grey skies.

Floral concerns


So I have been watching far too much sci-fi recently!
This is my second entry to the Thats crafty challenge - forever floral
 I adore these stamps of dogs and cats from Kaztelcraft I used the concerned pug against a background of basic grey paper.



Had a great day out in Cambridge today, here is a beautiful autumn view from John Lewis cafe.

Humming birds and cherry blossoms




Season greetings,

Here is my entry to the Less is More Challenge - stamp layering.

I tried using a layered flower stamp and have learned that  I am rubbish at this form of stamping! I have ordered a Tim Holtz stamp platform in the hope that this will help and because they are cool. So anyway here is a masked card using the fabulous designs by Ryn -Humming bird, visible image stamps and a line stamp that is so old it keeps trying to tell me about the last ice age.

I am also entering this card into the Designs by Ryn - November customer creation challenge. 



I also made this very plain CAS card  for the That's Crafty challenge blog which has the challenge - Forever Floral. I love this quote from Monet (via Alison Bomber's paper artsy stamps.)

As it is cold and rather grey outside here is a photo I took of a hummingbird moth while I was on holiday, much to the great puzzlement of people sitting near me!

flight


Hi,

My friend gave birth to a beautiful baby girl called Hester, so I googled it and found it means star in Hebrew. I had just the papers and just the quote (one of the paper artsy Alison Bomber sets I want all of them, she is ruining my bank balance!) I dug out an old magazine freebie of a feather die cut and tada!

I am entering this into the following challenges:
less is more - take flight
Sisters of Snark - lost and found - feather die
that's crafty -fly away

feathers and stars



Greetings,

sorry about the photos they went a tad blurry. I got really inspired by the less is more challenge this week, use a real object. I loved an article in Mixed Up mag where feathers were painted and just changed into wonderful pieces of art. So I had a go at stamping on a feather I had picked up.... I am now totally addicted to it, may need a support group addicted!  I was collecting feathers on the way home, I say on the way I walked in the opposite direction to my house then looped back round.
Anyway give it a go, the results can be stunning.

Also entering this into That's crafty - only cards challenge.
Simon says stamp challenge -anything goes
