Song Bird Fly

It's been a while, I really am a terrible blogger anyway thought I'd show you my first altered jigsaw piece. It started off with the inchy which is an ongoing challenge over at Craftymess this weeks them being birds.

I used a inch square piece of stampboard then inked with alcohol inks, stamped with Paper Artsy image and made the little bird with the Tim Holtz die and shrink plastic, edged in gold krylon pen.

The jigsaw piece itself was triple embossed in various colours then stamped with a crackle effect background. Added shrink plastic sentiment and beaded charm.

Really pleased with this for a first attempt.

Less is More

In case you didn't know there is a new blog Less is More where your cards have to be Clean and Simple (CAS). The first challenge is a colour one "Pink, Black and White". I think this is the first of it's kind for me as I love my papers and embellishments so much.

I made it to fit in with a sketch for my craft club which in itself is a simple one. I used a Hero Art stamp and embossed it, making the flowers 3d. The gingham paper and bits of black card from my stash.

Hope you like it.

Art and Soul swap - French themed fan

Two swap pieces in one morning, I have been busy haven't I although I nearly opted out of this one when I saw what it was.

Where on earth do you start with a french themed fan? I suppose that's why it's called a challenge.

The fan was made from a single blade template Viv gave us, it had to have 6 or 8 blades and each one to be 6" long. Decided on Shabby Chic look so used my favourite Tim Holtz papers appropriately named "Vintage Shabby" distressed with Victorian Velvet ink and then embossed the edges in gold. Not sure how french themed this actually is but had the idea of cameos with lace and pearls in my head.

The images were printed off from Magic Moonlight a great site for free downloads then cut out with the smallest oval nestie. The gold oval could have done to be a bit smaller to look more like a frame but never mind. The lace was sent by a good friend and finnished off with my Viva pearl pen.

Would love to know what you think so please leave me a comment.


Gingersnaps Art Exchange

The new art exchange over on Gingersnaps is to create four coasters with a heart theme.

I created my backgrounds using different mediums, distress inks, pearl acrylic paints, achohol ink and a peeled paint look with acrylic paints.
