Florries ATC Challenge

A good friend of mine asked me if I'd do one of my doodle horses, as the theme for Florries challenge on CSF this week is animals. This one was a bit different in as much as I doodled it with a pokey tool on stampbord, which had been inked with distress inks. I then edged the ATC with gold acrylic dabber.

Twinchie canvas

So, having made my very first twinchie, the dilemma arose, as to what to do with it! I consulted a friend, who helpfully told me that hers was "on the windowsill"! Being obviously far more creative than her..........(yeah right!) I decided to make mine into a canvas. I therefore did a bit of matting and layering, and attached it to a canvas that I had covered with a beautiful piece of daisy paper. I used a distress ink pad to distress the edges of the canvas to match, added gold peel off corners, and wrote the word Summer in Write 'n' rub pen, which I then gilded.

Anything goes Challenge

This is my first ever twinchie, made for the Anything goes Challenge on CSF. I've used my own design stamps again, with some lovely K & Co backing paper and a bindi!

Slide mount canvas

Yes, another canvas! I'm still playing with the slide mounts, and thought they would be effective used thus on a canvas, with prints of some of my paintings in them. I coloured the background of the canvas with distress inks, and painted the trees with acrylic paint to finish it off.

Slide mounts

Well....I bought these slide mounts, as I thought they'd look nice with my paintings in them. Then I was a bit concerned that a card with one attached might be a little top heavy. My friend Fifi suggested that I send her a card so she could check it kind is that?!!! Anyway I made this card, the slide mount does axctually hang squarely in front of the matts, but I had to turn it upside down to scan, so it's moved a bit! The trees are scribbled on with a biro :)

July tag swap

I've decided to join the July Tag swap on CSF........all three tags will be the same, so I've just blogged the first one. I have used a fab sheet of paper, (sorry can't remember whose it is!) The edges were distressed with distress ink, and then edged with a gold Adirondack acrylic dabber. The stamps are both my designs, stamped with olive green Stazon, and coloured in using Aquatone sticks. The lily was then cut out, and mounted on a spare piece of the background paper, and gold mirri card, before being attached to the tag.

Another canvas

Well I've been busy doing another canvas.................haven't mastered the art of stamping onto them yet, so had to employ a bit of lateral thinking, as I made the bulrushes stamp especially for this project! I hope you like it.

And another.................

Nearly finished the envelopes I owe people, so this is another one, which I have made using some beautiful papers, peel off stickers and my own design corner and butterfly rubber stamps, coloured in with Aquatone sticks
