Wednesday Stamper-image transfer

I have only ever done a few image transfers, all of them using acrylic paints, so for this canvas I went with what I knew. I love this image of the little girl, she reminds me so much of my daughter when she was little, she would always hold her head in her hands and pout when she couldn't get her own way, lol.

The background is also made with lots of layers of acrylic paints and also the odd spray of Glimmer mists, oh and a bit of oil pastel here and there. I've used several stamps from all different suppliers, but the one that does spring to mind are the sequin waste and the ring which are both from Inka stamps

It's great having a craftspace back, it means I have room to play with all my craft materials and get to take part in WS challenges, as well as all the others out there in blogland.

Busy time for Birthdays

It is a busy time for Birthdays at the moment, both amongst my lovely forum buddies and my family so here are a few of the cards I've made for birthdays last week and this coming week.

This first on is for my Mum, whos birthday is on Wednesday this week. The papers are a combination of Basic Grey and Papermania. The stamp is a favourite of mine from ISC. The ribbon unties to reveal a hidden birthday message for Mum.

This card was for Paula
The papers are all Papermania, a pad I bought recently for the bargain price of 75p

and finally this card was for Joanne
Another card made with Basic Grey papers.


little squares

We have got a collaborative project running on the forum I belong to where we make three little tiles, 2x2 in size, for each of the participants. There are 8 of us taking part and we all choose the colour scheme we want to be used on our tiles. Chris is the first to pick her colours and she chose yellows and oranges, colours I don't often work with, but I'm quite pleased with the results.


One piece, two challenges

The challenge over on MMM is 'The written word' and the challenge on Created by Hand is to use blue and green, so here is my piece that fits both challenges.


long time posting

Where did February go? The days seem to be going by so fast I can't keep up. I haven't made much since my last post but this week I'm having an annual leave week, hubby and DD are both working and my two DS's are at school and college so that leaves me time to play. I did struggle when I started this morning, I seemed to of forgotten what to do, but after about an hour I got back into the swing of things. I've not made these cards for any particular reason other than to get a bit of a head start on any birthdays I have coming up.

This card is made pearlesent card and the Cuttlebug, very simple but I like the cleanness of it. I've put two pics up as one shows the detail the other shows the sheen of the card.

This little card I haven't decided if I like yet or not, or if it's finished, I keep looking at it thinking something is missing but can't tell what, any pointers would be welcome.

This card is my favourite of the three I've made, I just love it. The papers are K&Co, more of the finds I had just after Christmas when I had a clearout of my stash. The stamp is by Crafty Individuals

Sorry about the state of the photos, it is a very grey day here today so the light is terrible. I can't crop my photos either at the moment as I formatted my laptop at the weekend and I haven't found all the software discs yet, including my photo editing one.
