Card Challenge Six

sorry I mean

Card Challenge Seven

and my favourite so far as I love my cats :)

For the background I punched a fish bone punch into a piece of paper and then used the hole as a mask.

The cats were stamped in a row and then I stamped and cut out three more cats, coloured them in using Distress Ink and a waterbrush, and then decoupaged them onto my original stamped image. Simples:)

001Off to work on my new Digi Stamps. Thanks for looking.

Ice & Snow

Every so often we make something that I really enjoy and this book was one of them. It was a joint venture with Karen making the beautiful book pages and me having the job of making the front and back covers. Together we designed  the front cover on paper and then it was my job to bling it up and make it sparkly.

Now you would think that I got off lightly but it was one of those projects I didn ‘t want to end and I’d still be playing now if we hadn’t had to teach the class last Saturday.

You can see some pictures including the inside of the book, on the Scrapbook Sisters Blog, but here are some close ups of the front cover.

There are fairies in my lounge

I love my melting pot and I also love frames. Infact you could say I am addicted to them. Last year Wilkinsons had a frame sale and I was front of the queue on more than one day. As a result I now have enough frames to last me many years all ready for decorating.

Here is one of the small frames altered with Copper Utee and stamped into whilst hot. I have no idea where I got the stamps from but they have been used more than once.

026 028 I am currently making mosaic squares using the same technique to decorate a much larger frame.

Thanks for looking.

A few more Christmas Cards

yes I’m still ploughing through the Christmas Cards. These three were for Wednesdays Card Class. I love the Penguins so much I have  made a mini book out of them. The class is on the last Monday in November and is really cute.

404-1 405-1 I loved the way the Copic Marker reacted to the Crystal Stickle. I am definitely going to experiment with this more.

406-1 407-1 408-1 410-1 I really liked the 3D effect that I got with the ball tool and soft mat. I think I will be using this technique a lot more too this Christmas.
