The challenge this week on Wednesday Stamper challenge blog is silhouettes. I made this ATC by brayering the background, and stamping my own heron silhouette stamp. I used a black pen to extend the design to the top of the ATC. I edged the card with a black marker, job done.

The challenge on Daring cardmakers challenge blog this week is fish and/or frog. I made this card using a print of a perch that I had previously painted. For a background I painted a little lake bank scene. I cut the scene out as an oval and edged it with a peeloff once it was adhered to the card. The fish was adhered using 3d foam pads and the card was edged with black distress ink and finished with peel offs.

I know this is a bit late, but last weeks challenge on Art Creations Friday was to use this stunning background paper. I have used it to make a simple skinny. The weeds were added with Galaxy marker and the fish were hand drawn onto holgraphic silver card.
This is what happens when I tidy my desk!! I found this little strip of lovely grunge paper and couldn't bear to throw it away, so I made this tag, again using some butterflies which I had previously made using fantasy film and crystal lacqeurs and my butterfly stamps. The tag was finished off with flowers that were drawn on using Adirondack pens.

I am still playing with my swirls stamps, this time using them on square cards. I again embossed them, and cut around them. I lined the card with nice paper onto which I also stamped my butterflies and dragonflies, which I cut out and adhered to the front. I also cut out some corners from the same paper, using the cuttlebug.

At last I have found time to play with my new Swirls stamps. Having stamped and embossed them using some cosmic shimmer powders, I cut around the swirl to give a more interesting front edge to the card. I then made an insert using patterned paper. Using my cuttlebug, I cut and embossed some butterflies from the same paper, and attached these to the front. The green card also had a strip of the paper and peel offs added to finish, whereas the purple card had a couple of bindis and a hand written greeting added.

I had a little bit of Creative Impressions paper left on my desk, so I thought I'd make a couple of ATCs, I used another of my swirl stamps and a couple of stckers from the same range as the paper. the edges were again distressed with inks.
I have joined a Fat Book list on Craft Swap Forum, which involves making a dog page and a cat page. This is my dog page, I have used a couple of my own stamps, which are available from my website And the edges have been aged with distress ink.
