2 Things I love

Well 2 things I love are 2 Sticks and Scraplings so what a perfect opportunity to combine the 2. So here is my contribution to the Stampotique Challenge 24 Valentine or Love.

I am also entering this into The Stampman Challange, Hearts Theme, as I love its clean fresh simplicity and it makes me smile each time I look at it.

Hope you enjoy!

Crowns with Gingersnaps

I have not been posting much just recently as I have been busy completing 2 fabric items for an exhibition. A fabric picture and a fabric book. I will share them with you in time. I just find I am chasing my tail just at the moment and am trying to catch up.

This is my make for Crowns with Gingersnaps and I have used the Queen of Life. I have cut her crown from some gold metal and also one for one of her cherubs. The other has a more playful princess hat for her crown. The background has been made using  my acrylic inks. 

There are some great makes by the other designers and players. Hop over and take a look and hope you find time to play along too!

Circles with Tag Tuesday

Art Begins with a Vision

This is my circle tag for Tag Tuesday. The words are on some card I had painted which also included Moonglow inks. These have created a sheen which the light is now bouncing off and the words do not show up too well in the photograph, so I have titled this piece so the words can be read. I have continued playing with paints and inks to create the background to this tag. I have also adhered some die cut circles from the same card as the lettering has been stamped on to.

Card Positioning Challenge with Stampotique

There is a sketch challenge on the go at the moment with Card Positioning Systems  combined  with Stampotique. Well I just had to play along. 

This is the sketch to work from. So I rotated it and this was my interpretation on the theme. The little fellow  in the window felt like the typical teenager, not cool to show enthusiasm, so he is there saying "Whatever..."

Stampotique Orange and Turquoise

This is my Turquoise and Orange contribution to the current Stampotique Challenge. I must admit they are colours I am rather partial to so it suited me just fine. It also allowed me to continue using my acrylic inks to create the background papers. and my 2 most favourite Martha Stewart punches.

I adore 2 sticks and find that they are just so versatile. These colours are so spring like I just had to have them jumping for joy amongst Jo Capper-Sandon's flower stamp, at the thought of winter coming to an end.
