Shells




Greetings,

This is my entry to the that's crafty challenge purple passion and the fashionable stamping challenge on the beach. I have used the wonderful shell from Designs by Ryn on vellum, I then painted the underside and backed it with a pager from the waterbabies.

wild and free



I got some Brushos for my birthday and I have loved using them.This is a canvas which I have layered with paper scraps before painting with gesso and then I went a bit mental with Brushos. The images are stamp board which has been painted with Bushos and then stamped with visible image stamps which I always seem to end up using at the mo.





I am entering this into the wonderful:

Try it on Tuesday - hot and wild
Craft Stamper- anything goes
crafty card makers - anything but a card

two for one post

Greetings,

 This is my entry to the current that's crafty challenge - Housey, housey. 
the card is made using lots of layers so, fingers crossed I can give it to one of my mad cat lady friends.

I also wanted to enter this challenge to make sure I said a BIG thank you to Laura who works at That's crafty and helped me get hold of the Tim Holtz crazy birds stamps. Laura  was swift in her replies and was very polite to a rubber stamp obsessive who kept emailing her demanding updates.



This my entry to this week's less is more challenge - use a stencil.
Yes I got to use the afore mentioned stamps and this is my entry to less is more using a dylusions stencil, pickled raspberry ink and a big circle cut out.

Sunset

Good day,

This is my card for the current Less is more challenge- sunset colors. The stamp is a Lynn Perrelli which I have inked with various shades of distress inks and then framed with an embossed arch.


I have decorated the inside, because it is a large card and filling up that much space with happy birthday was a bit intimidating!




















Best Wishes
Louise

Flight

 Greetings,

I love to use bits on my cards especially if they are free or from used objects. The embossed steampunkish background is made from a Diet coke can, which I cleaned and flattened and stuck on a bit of cardboard packaging which had be painted with gesso and sprayed.


I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Less is more - use metal
left of center- recycling
Artful times - anything goes, sadly the last challenge
